Sōkyū no Fafner has seen the original Dead Aggressor series, the videos “Single Progra, Right of Left” and “Heaven and Earth”, and more recently, Dead Aggressor: The Beyond.
Now it’s getting a new spinoff called Behind the Line. The trailer is out, and it starts off like a sombre emotional slice-of-life, but if you don’t blink, you’ll see the fighter jet and alien green takeover.
IMDB describes Dead Aggressor as;
The youth of Tatsumiya Island believed that they had ordinary lives… until the advent of the Festum, extraterrestrial intelligent life forms intent on assimilating all humans. Abruptly, their once peaceful island transforms into a high-tech military fortress to counter-attack the hostile aliens. Their shock intensifies when they learn that only they can pilot the Fafner, a class of humanoid-type robots that represent the final and only weapon against the Festums and their divine powers.
Behind the Line is one story. “Soshi Minashiro Birthday Party 2017” event promised fans a “peaceful spinoff”, and the daily life story takes place after Heaven and Earth and before Fafner EXODUS.
The whole cast is returning, and previous Funimation and Crunchyroll have streamed the show, which means if Behind the Line goes West, it’ll be on Crunchyroll.
