Anyone who loves mecha anime, stories about intergalactic battle or sci-fi isn't going to want to miss Strain: Strategic Armored Infantry (奏光のストレイン ). This series, by Studio Fantasia, premiered in 2006, and is about 16-year-old Sara Werec, who, like her father before her, is training to become a pilot to help protect the Union from their interplanetary enemy, the Deague. Her brother, Ralph, is already in the front lines of the ongoing interstellar war. But when the Deague launches an attack against Sara’s training camp, she sees her brother among the enemy raiders. Follow Sara as she tries to discover what happened to him to turn him into a traitor.

Those who love cute stories about navigating adolescence and finding adventure will love Rocket Girls (ロケットガール). It tells the story of 16-year-old Yukari Morita, who goes to the Solomon Islands to find her long-lost father. There, she meets Nasuda Isao, the director of the Solomon Space Association (SSA), who promises to help her find her father if she first helps him. After numerous failures to launch a successful mission, Nasuda needs someone to fly a rocket that can’t support a full adult. Can Yukari become a teenage astronaut and find her father before the start of school? The series is based on the light novel (young adult novel) by the same name.
