* KarmaHoudini: Debatable. [[spoiler:Jonathan doesn't really get a tangible comeuppance by the heroes, but... when in the end he discovers that Baron Maximillian, the person he respected the most in the world, is actually the mother he hated so much, his whole world crumbles.]]

The series is also notable for being Creator/YoshiyukiTomino & MamoruNagano's first collaboration in over a decade. They had allegedly had a falling out during the production of ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'' over a woman, probably voice actress MariaKawamura who eventually became Nagano's wife.

* FanNickname: Jonathan = Johnny Boy; Quincy = DTR Girl, short for 'Deaf To Reason Girl'.



* RealitySubtext: The later part of the show's central themes of forgiveness and reconciliation are especially poignant in view of Yoshiyuki Tomino's reunion with Mamoru Nagano.

One of the most bizarre anime by Creator/YoshiyukiTomino, ''Brain Powerd'' takes place in a future Earth ravaged by earthquakes and flood, all of which are the result of the activity of a mysterious sentient alien spacecraft called Orphan, buried in the depths of the Pacific Ocean and home to a group of scientists and researchers known to the world as Reclaimers. Orphan's true objective is to eventually rise from the ocean and start a new journey into space... which, however, would cause TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, since Orphan needs to feed on the organic energy of all living beings to sustain itself in its journey. The Reclaimers do not seem to care much, though, and are willing to go through with Orphan's plans, seeing themselves as Orphan's chosen ones that will become the seeds of a new humanity. To fulfill their plans, Reclaimers make use of [[EmpathicWeapon Empathic Weapons]], living organic mechas known as Antibodies or Gran Chers, and endlessly search for the Plates from which they originate, in order to swell their numbers. However, not all is lost, since the Novice Noah, a group of Antibody pilots using the Brain Powerd, infant forms of Gran Cher, rises to stop the Reclaimers' plans.
