These are stories about peace though lens of war and conflict, with Ledo of Gargantia being the actual soldier conditioned for a life of fighting while Loran is a peace loving young man trying to mediate in a war to preserve the peace he loves so much. There lack of emphasis on actual mech combat in lieu of developing the world around them. Turn-A creates this grand narrative that examines the nature of peace, and Gargantia takes that same message and condenses it to fit within 13 episodes. And yes, both are indeed worth a look at.
Both are epic old school sci-fi series with clever plotwists, great battles and political plots.
Both are mecha series with a femenine-looking male main character that ends crossdressing at some point.
Turn A Gundam puts a huge emphasis on its characters as E7 did.

In the last few episodes, I confirmed that So Ra No Wo To was near Identical to Turn A Gundam. In the opening episode, there is alot of symbolism with the angel of destruction and the fortress maiden ritual that happens also in Turn A Gundam too. The overall world was similar as well. Both worlds had/are recovered/recovering from near destruction with the introduction of some over-powered technology. Both series have very little action as well and are more character based.
Mecha(kinda) and great music, from the same person Yoko Kanno
A single mysterious ancient mecha is found in ruins, which is far superior to every other modern mechs or weaponry, that the main protagonists operates. There's also a minor romance subplot where the main heroine (whom are also queens) has romantic feelings for our male protagonists.
When watching Brain Powerd, i couldn't help but think about another Tomino series, Turn A Gundam. Both shows have a lot in common, plus they both share some of the same voice actors, and a score by Yoko Kanno.
both occur in a post-apoch world setting involving the use of past technologies in order to survive, and require the discovery of ancient secret technologies to continue their civilization's lives and hope for the future.
Both shows are directed by Yoshiyuki Tomino, the father of the gundam franchise and mecha anime visonary, and both shows are him at his most lighthearted, but also at his directoral best. Both shows follow a group of really likeable young people through a spanning war. In Turn A, it's about going back to your roots, and in L.Gaim, it's about rebellion and trying to find your place in the world, as well as following your destiny. Both shows feature a great deal of humor and are both genuianlly funny, because you really start to like and care about these characters. Neither show really focuses much on the mecha either and are more character dramas/adventure shows, so those usually uninterested in mecha anime may find these series easier to get into.
