Editorial Reviews

Casshern – a cybernetic assassin with no memory of his past – awakens in a corrosive wasteland where nothing survives for long. A plague known as the Ruin sweeps across this once-vibrant world, reducing everything in its path to rubble and scattering any chance for salvation. Robots and humans alike – or what little remains of them – seek vengeance against Casshern for the life he took and the role he played in their Ruin. A machine built to kill, Casshern murdered the last hope for this world, but now, lost in a future he does not recognize, he will fight to save the dying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy Casshern... Enjoy Casshern... July 14, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
"Kill Casshern... Devour Casshern..."

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Casshern Is A Visual Gem October 11, 2012
By KevinB
Format:Blu-ray
Anime has come a long way in the past 30 years or so. Casshern Sins is probably one of the top 3 visually enticing animes I've ever seen. I was completely blown away by this show. Casshern is an android that awakens to a ravaged world full of ruined robots and very few remaining humans. He has no memory, but his enemies all want to devour him and are blaming the ruined world on him. He wanders alone trying to discover the truth and find the meaning of existence. The story is slow paced and very methodical. It has a very downtrodden vibe about it. But it's emotionally heavy and very thought provoking.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Work of Art October 31, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Wow, this series was simply amazing from top to bottom. This is definitely what I would call top tier. Every aspect of this show is well thought out and very well produced. The animation and background artwork is astoundingly beautiful with music perfect for each and every scene. The style used throughout is unique in the way it looks on screen compared to other anime. It is just a treat for the eyes. The story is amazing as well. All of the characters are complete and their stories told quite well. The overall melancholy emotion of the show fits well with the scenery and stories we are given to watch play out and are a proper homage to the 70's sci-fi feel to the show. The journey this series takes a viewer on is intense and yet very enjoyable. Overall this series is a treat in all aspects. The crew that put this together definitely get a thumbs up on this one, as their time and effort are visible throughout. Simply stated, this anime, is not just an anime series, but is a true work of art from top to bottom and is impressive and a joy to experience. I thoroughly enjoyed every episode. Definitely a must have for any collection out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much to say, have no words to say it... May 6, 2013
By OAS
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm literally all emotions and no words to express them right now... Luckily, people before me wrote very great and descriptive reviews.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A top quality Blu-Ray anime title... August 12, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I have only seen 2 episodes of this Blu-Ray set so far, but I am thoroughly impressed with the visual and audio presentation. I recently saw all of Casshern Sins on Netflix, then the next day I actually found out about this complete collection release [the day before its release] and pre-ordered it. If you want an excellent example of a quality Blu-Ray anime release this is a good one. Line detail, motion fluidity, image contrast, and image color use are all beautifully done. Dolby True HD audio track has very good presence and good surround use (not in the same league as Yukikaze - but a very well done surround track!) If all anime looked this good on Blu-Ray nobody would bother with DVD's anymore!

Note: I will update this review once I have gone through the whole Blu-Ray set.
