Yumi and Kyo are children who have been selected to take part in a top secret mission, to be the pilots of the first Fafner combat units; the last chance of survival for the human race. The enemy is ruthless, remorseless and is able to read the minds of humans. Therefore, the details of this mission are kept a secret even from the personnel involved. The young pilots must use all their courage and faith in order to survive and complete their mission or the fate of mankind would be compromised.

This TV special's supposed to cover the origins of how the Fafner and the Siegfried System were created, on top of the new story focused on the main couple of this special. Unfortunately, 50 minutes just isn't enough to properly develop the drama faced by the couple as they experience the side effects of piloting Fafner thanks to the anime's fast pacing through events, especially with the tragic ending it attempts to build up. While the animation here's better polished compared to the TV anime with cleaner details and even fluid animation in battle scenes, said battle scenes are brief and don't last long enough for one to get immersed in them. Overall, this is a rather forgettable title in the Fafner franchise and unless you're a completist, you're not missing out much here.
