Editorial Reviews

It is a new reality. For 15 years, the remnants of the human race have fought against the alien Mu and their unstoppable giant Dolem; a battle mankind seems destined to lose. But deep within the captured city of Tokyo, where time flows on a different path and mind-wiped citizens do not even know that they have been conquered, there is something that the Mu fear more than all of mankind's weapons. To find that secret, one young women must penetrate the domed walls of Tokyo Jupiter and find a single young man, a young man upon whom the fate of all humanity depends....for in his heart lies the power of RahXephon, and with it all the worlds can be remade.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great show, but stupid stackpack June 1, 2011
By CJ Thom
Well, I was rather resistant to try this show out. My main problem was that it is so often compared to Neon Genesis Evangelion, which I cannot honestly say I like (in fact I really disliked it, but I won't get into why here, my objective is not to start a flame war or anything). So I was really iffy on trying this show out with all the comparison. But to me, other than teens+mecha, it really was nothing like NGE.

First off, the art and music in this show is quite nice, it certainly makes watching it even more of a treat. The dub is also perfectly fine filled with ADV familiars that all do a good job. But the characters rather stuck out to me, they had their moments of being, for lack of better word, "emo", but they didn't just stick on that note the entire time (it was usually very brief and totally warranted). They changed as the series progressed and became more interesting with each episode. Story-wise the series also hints at something larger going on, partly meaning seemingly pointless symbolic bs all over the place, however, only those who actually care can rewatch the series specifically for it. There is symbolism, but the show resists beating the viewer over the head with it. In a first viewing, it can be a perfectly enjoyable show, if not slightly confusing at times (one that made me run to the internet to find out some minor details here and there, but with no problems understanding the overall story). There is more to symbolism going on in the show, the story makes revelations later that make earlier parts of the show make sense, certainly requiring its viewer to be paying attention the whole time and for those who care, almost certainly demanding a rewatch. Fair warning, this is not a show you watch to just sit back and turn your brain off.

3.0 out of 5 stars Weirdest anime I have seen November 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is the weirdest anime I have probably ever seen! The thing that bothered me about the show most was how it seemed the episodes didn't connect to each other. They would end and the next one would start off at a completely different place. I liked the animation but this show was just clustered with too many characters and ambitions that it wasn't able to carry out by the end. Still, it was entertaining and kept me wanting more. If you like Evangelion I would say watch this. It is sort of like it. A lot of people are making comparisons. There are similarities but I wouldn't call this a rip off.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very GOOD series October 17, 2012
By KevinB
RahXephon is a really cool anime. It has a lot in common with Evengelion. The whole kid uses a giant humanoid robot to change the world to the way he wants it to be thing is pretty much the story. The anime has a lot of great characters and very good animation. The voice actors are all good as well. I would give it 5 stars if there weren't as many plot holes and if it had a better ending. Other than that. This anime is a good watch riding on the soaring wings of Evangelion. I can't say Evangelion is one of my top 10 favorites or anything either. The giant robot genre isn't really my thing. But both are really good and worth seeing. I say go for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great March 9, 2014
Verified Purchase
There isn't really anything i didn't like about it. Though i could see it easily being 50 episodes to better explore some of the show's themes, and perhaps more character development. Really though a "must watch" series.

If this would have come out before Evangelion things might be very different. Good series, but you can't really compare the two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Show August 4, 2013
Verified Purchase
Good plot gets crazy at the end. Likable characters make up for slightly lackluster mecha fights. Good animation. Highly recommended.
