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.

I like Casshern, I really do. But around my area it seems like I'm the only one who's ever heard of this series. I'll give a very brief rundown of the origin of this franchise:

Shinzo Ningen Kyashan, or translated as Neo-Human Casshan, was an anime series created by animation studio Tatsunoko Productions in 1973. This series was never localized since the Japanese super-hero genre was never really that popular here in America. Years later in 2003, the OVA (titled "Robot Hunter Casshan") was subtitled and released on two DVDs (both of which you can find here on Amazon, at the time of this review of course). In 2007, the live-action version was re-cut, subtitled and officially released by Dreamworks here in America, titled "Casshern." In early 2010, Casshan made an appearance as a playable character in the fighting game "Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom" for the Nintendo Wii. I'm really not sure what's going on with the translation of this character's name; they just can't seem to decide which one to use. But anyway, just know that "Casshan" and "Casshern" are the same character.

Now it's mid-2010 (again, at time of this review), and here we have Casshern Sins. Suffice it to say, FUNimation did a fantastic job of localizing this great anime. If you've never seen it before, you don't need to know any of Casshern's back-story to get into it, but I think it's a lot more fulfilling if you do watch the other Casshern material. I won't go into the story, since that would make this review more lengthy than it already is and that's something you can probably find anywhere on the internet, but rest assured that it's one you won't soon forget. All of the English voice actors sound nearly identical to their Japanese counterparts.

After taking the advice of others, I checked this series out. To sum it up, I like Casshern, really it is a well written series with some great art style and characters. The world is interesting and the anguish of Casshern is well portrayed. There is just a lot of questions about the background which never really get solved. You get the gist of things by the end of the series but things aren't totally clear. Some of the scenes are almost a bit over dramatic to the point it seems the writer is trying too hard. In the end if the rest of the series wasn't so well done, you'd wonder what the point of watching it was.

This series is not a happy cheery anime. There is a lot of death, mostly all of which is robot based so theres not blood splatter everywhere. While there are some quirks with it, you just can't hate Casshern. Really I want to give it 5 stars but in the end I just don't feel the need to watch it again. I've seen what the buzz is, I agree it is good, but I just don't feel the need to see it again. Unfortunately it just isn't a series I'm super into in the end. But I hope for others it will be. It certainly is at least worth a rental.

Casshern Sins is a tough anime to describe. It's about a being named Casshern roaming a world in which, as far as we know, he destroyed himself by killing Luna. When he did so it spread a plague of Ruin throughout the world destroying robots and humans alike. Now, years after the destruction Casshern awakes to find what he has done and has no memories of ever doing anything. Did he do it? Why did he do it? How can he fix it? These are certainly questions you will ask yourself as he wanders aimlessly through this dying lawless world.

So here's the deal. The animation in this anime is just superb. I mean excellent. I absolutely LOVE the way the filters look and certain colors just pop right out at you while everything still remains dark and sad. If you think there's no place in this type of world for person dressed like a superhero you'd be wrong. Casshern fits perfectly despite his get-up and it works wonderfully.

So the episodes. A lot of them consisting of Casshern roaming the world and discovering what he has done and who's paying the price(i.e. everybody). Many people will find this anime...not exactly to their liking. It's very quiet. Not much music at all. Lots of moments with silence and much contemplating what these people are thinking. The result is a very emotional experience that I enjoy a lot. But while there are the silent despressing moments, there are also the battles. Not as much but there are some battles certainly. The battles are amazing and it's great to watch Casshern dance around ripping robots to shreds. He's a killing machine and nothing can stop him. Even if you think he may be killing the enemy just because they show him doing it onscreen you can't always be fooled.

To me, this anime has to be one of the best around. It has super fluid action scenes, which also happen to be incredibly animated. It also has one of the best stories I've ever seen. A man who is unaffected by a ravaging disease in a post-apocalyptic world has to defend himself against the masses. A literal "me vs. the world" story. I highly recommend this anime, especially if you're a fan of mechas and fighting animes/manga.
