The Casshern franchise is one that dates back to the 70's with 'Neo-Human Casshern', with a four episode OVA called 'Casshern: Robot Hunter' later being released.
Then, in 2008, we got Casshern Sins, a totally different tale from the previous "Save the world/humanity!" themes present in the previous series's.
One day, an amnesiac Casshern awakens to a world flooded with Ruin- humans are dying off, unable to reproduce, and the once immortal robots are falling victims to rust. The world is on it's last legs, civilization as we know it is about to be wiped out.
There is, however, an odd rumor going about. If someone devours Casshern, they will regain their eternal life. And so sets off Casshern's journeys into the wastelands on his quest to answer- what happened to the world? Why is he not yet affected by the Ruin? Why does he seem to have a true immortality that even other robots in perfect condition couldn't obtain?
Just who was the supposed savior of the world, the Sun Named Moon, and what was his connection to her and the seemingly hopeless situation around him?
Casshern Sins is, in my humble opinion, quite possibly one of the best animes I've ever seen, one I'm willing to put on the same level as Neon Genesis Evangelion and Puella Magi Madoka Magica (and just for the sake of my childhood, hell, let's throw Yu-Gi-Oh! into the mix! ... No? Ok...). The series itself tends to have a very episodic nature- it's primary focus for much of the series is Casshern's quest in itself, and tends to focus much on Casshern's encounters with people and robots (mostly robots) in the wastelands, some of which do not contribute anything to finding the Sun Named Moon. And honestly? It works out well.Read more ›
The animation is unparalleled and the voice acting is also great. The soundtrack fits the mood of the story perfectly. There are lots of interesting characters in this one as well. I am amazed by Casshern Sins. I can't say it's a favorite of mine b/c of the depressing mood of it; I like animes that are more happy. But ignore my personal preference and check it out. Everything about it is top notch.
Casshern Sins is a very strange, very confusing, very sad, very emotional, and very happy story in an awkward way. If you think that it's just about robots - drop the idea immediately. Great and emotional music, heavy and gloomy scenery, episode after episode... somewhat simplistic yet very deep style of drawing at the same time... Definitely not for children, that's all I can say... and don't be expecting to feed your 'wild side'... it's not about robots fighting each other, despite that there is a lot of it... it's about feelings and emotions (mostly sad and depressing, but somehow optimistic at the same time)... if you are looking for action and thrill - not your choice. Emotions rule here. Enough said. The only way to understand is to watch. There is really no way to like it or hate it. There is no need to. With this story, all you need to do is watch it and take in all in.
So I started a reluctant search for another anime that I would actually enjoy(I am RIDICULOUSLY picky when it comes to anime)...and after saying 'no' to a long list depending on the story line or reviews, I stumbled upon Casshern SINS. The artwork immediately caught my attention. A beautiful, soft yet almost decayed look and very different than other animes I'd seen. After picking through almost every review, I also became interested in the story and decided to take a chance...and watched the entire series in one weekend.
Casshern SINS has got to be one of the most tragically beautiful things I have ever seen. Everything, from the artwork to the characters to the storyline and animation is breath taking. The struggle every character goes through is wonderfully portrayed, and I quickly fell helplessly in love with them all. I gotta admit, the hair took me some time to get used to. One of the girls' bangs could clothesline someone, and I have no idea how Casshern fits his wild mane beneath that tiny little swim cap thing he puts on for battle, but you get used to it. You can't help but feel for these guys, and root for them every step of the way. Even the villains are just seeking what they see as their last hope in a dead world.
The story line, though its horribly heart breaking in some places, is different but a refreshing change to the usual plot you get.Read more ›
