Editorial Reviews

Those who yield to madness and those who fight against it... Those who end their lives, as if there's no escaping it... Men who carried on their own way of life lived in Lukuss, a place where death and serenity ruled... The king of the new world took his throne, and the girl, who was tossed about by fate, ended her mission. Was there a reason for the battle fought by these men of honor? A horrible demise approaches.

With this volume, the series ends. It could easily have been titled "As I lay dying", in English, given the way the series ends. To those of you surprised by the ending, really, did you imagine there could be a good ending to all of this? What I find most interesting is that it is the UN-modified "Salvation Union" inhabitants of Lux (Lux is Latin for "Light", by the way) end up being the most monstrous beings of all.

The ending is about as happy as the end in GILGAMESH, if you're familiar with that anime.

Ichise is indeed fairly stupid, unreflective, animalistic and violent. His only emotional growth comes from Doc's compassion for him, his acceptance of his new limbs, Onishi's grudging respect for him as a warrior, learning to forgive his late father, and his developing feelings of affection and concern for Ran, the only other human being Ichise ever learns to care about, albeit too late to be of any help. Ichise's eventual reconciliation with the Organo (they being the entity that cut his limbs off to begin with) is interesting, though he joins them mainly because he doesn't know where else to go. Ichise learns to respect the more intelligent/wise of the "godfathers" of the Organo.
If you listen carefully, you'll note one of the voice actors of the godfathers also supplied the voice of the OSS Colonel in the original Medal of Honor first-person shooter game on Playstation.

I found Onishi to be an admirable character and an honorable leader, despite being a Yakuza-like crime boss. He tries to hold his organization and the city together in the face of a direct assault by The Class. Conservative? Some things are worth trying to conserve. None of the other "pretenders" to the Organo leadership can hold a candle to Onishi's integrity.

Is this series depressing or what? This final dvd for Texhnolyzed shows more of the madness generated by the wild beast that is potentially brewing within all humankind. The human world was divided into the peace loving populace and those with more of a propensity towards violence, who were banished to the underground world of Lukuss. A scenario of what may happen to the world under such policies is illustrated. If non-traditional, Nihilistic story lines and raw animated expressions are what you're looking for, pick up this series.

This beautiful but at times unsatisfying show finally comes to a conclusion that most people will find depressing and hopeless, much like Wolf's Rain. Ichise's journey to the surface world to warn them of an impending attack seems pointless when most of the people have evolved into ghost-like wraiths that only live on memories of their past lives. He decides to return to Lukuss for the sake of Ran, the seer that has watched over him for much of the show. Onishi meanwhile looks for answers in the voice of the City that has always spoken to him about his best course of action. If the city cannot be saved and brought back by from its madness, then mankind itself might become extinct!

Texhnolyze, like a fine work of art, enlightens and frightens, by showing the dangers of tying man's evolution to technology instead of evolving spiritually. The show is beautiful and sublime but does not conform to the "Hollywood" model of having a happy ending. Some issues are too big to be decided by cookie-cutters. We're dealing with tragedy here in which even if the characters knew the answers to ending the crises, they wouldn't have the power to implement them. Such is life. Great show if a tad disappointing.
