Heaven and Earth (2010), the first theatrical feature spun off from the popular mecha adventure series Fafner, takes place in 2148. Two years after the interplanetary war ended, the aliens known as Festum launch a new wave of attacks against the Earth, specifically against the hidden island of Tatsumiyajima. After being nearly blinded in the previous conflict, Kazuki is working as a cook, but when the attacks begin, he climbs into his Fafner and leads the charge. Kazuki must confront a Festum who takes human form and the name Misao Kurasu: he may have been sent by Kazuki's old friend Soshi to try to make peace between the warring races. The original Fafner borrowed heavily from Evangelion, and Misao recalls Kaoru, the Fifth Child. The filmmakers can't seem to decide if they're presenting a high-tech mecha war story or an empathetic portrait of interplanetary misunderstanding. The Neo-UN is once again the enemy of both sides, threatening the idyllic pseudo-Japan of Tatsumiyajima with "Enola-512" bombers. However, fans of Fafner are more interested in exciting CG combat scenes than a nuanced plot, and Heaven and Earth delivers plenty of airborne dogfights that pit the Festum, which look like gold Christmas tree ornaments, against the teen pilots in the flamboyant Fafner mobile suits. And for otaku who want still more, a second feature, Fafner Exodus, has been announced for later in 2013. (TV 14: violence, violence against women, alcohol use, brief nudity) --Charles Solomon

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie for the Fafner Universe December 31, 2012
Verified Purchase
Pretty good, actually really awesome at times wish the series had been in BD as its really gorgeous looking for all the fast paced fafner festum battles. And really emotionally intense too with the plot, poor Kazuki and even Kurusu. Not to dig into the plot too much but pretty well done with exploring things from the Festum perspective via Kurusu, as well as Kazuki and some Soushi there. Friendship moments are strong and the ending was really pleasing to me.

Visually looks fantastic for mecha anime in 1080p HD, really well done and fast action high paced and intense.

I hope theres another movie as one huge plot point is still unresolved or possibly two. Peace with the UN, their still on the run from them and their still attacking festum in the North pole for example.

angela music so good for insert and the credits theme and solid dub as like the tv anime. Good bd from funi.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful movie, well worth the wait! January 11, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful movie (both visually and story-wise) with an excellent translation and dub from Funimation. After they rescued the Fafner 2006 TV series (and cleaned up the messy Geneon subtitles--thank you for that!), they went on to release this long-awaited 2010 sequel to the series in a beautifully packed Bluray/DVD combo pack. Though it's possible to watch the movie on its own and enjoy it for its visually stunning mecha battles, thought-provoking story and gorgeous animation of the idyllic Japanese island town of Tatsumiya, you really get a lot more if you've seen the Fafner TV series first. HAE covers a lot of story, and very little explanation is given of terms, relationships, etc, that newer viewers will not be familiar with.

Speaking of the story... Note: This will be a mostly spoiler-free review, but I will at least cover the state that most of the characters are in at the film's beginning (most which you can glean from the theatrical trailer anyway). But rest assured--there is MUCH more to the movie than what I'm covering here, so you will have plenty more to experience yourself. I'm just whetting your appetite. ;-)

So, two years after the end of the TV series, Soushi has yet to return to Tatsumiya Island and Kazuki--due to the extensive assimilation phenomenon he underwent at the end of the series--is almost completely blind. He has begun working as a cook at Mizoguchi-san's Rakuen Cafe, and Mizoguchi-san has taken advantage of Kazuki's popularity by naming every other menu item after him (e.g. "Kazuki Curry," "Kazuki Cake," "Kazuki Pudding," etc). Business is, unsurprisingly, doing very well.

Maya is also working there as a waitress and seems to have continued being a supportive friend to Kazuki, watching over him in his sickness.
