2 years after the end of the war, the surviving residents of Tatsumiya Island continued their everyday life. Kazuki became nearly blind and partially crippled from his battle against the aliens, named Festum. his friend Soushi, who never returned since the battle, promised to return to the island to set things right again. one day, Soushi returned on a submarine, but he claimed to be Misao instead. they realized that he wasn't entirely human. after his arrival, Festum invaded and another battle started. the Fafner pilots weer forced into the battle again, to defend their land.
we were first attracted to the movie because of the characters' similarity with Gundam Seed (2002) and Gundam Seed Destiny (2002), seeking perhaps a connection between these series. but the actual reason behind, was because the artist who drew Gundam Seed, Hisashi Hirai (平井久司), was the same person who also drew Fafner, together with Heroic Age (2007) and Linebarrels of Iron (2008). the storyline was slightly blurred for us who didn't catch its anime aired 7 years ago. nor was it as successful as Gundam Seed to have its anime reproduced again and again for us to lay our hands on the 100 episodes easily.
