5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for a sci-fi fan 21 Aug 2003
By "yeselcuk" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
RahXephon is a sci-fi anime with an intriguing story. Editorial review does a good job for summarizing the overall scenerio, so there is no need to lengthen my review. RahXephon resembles Neon Genesis Evangelion in many respects but it doesn't have the drawbacks of Evangelion that I mentioned in my review of its complete set. If you enjoy science-fiction books or movies having interesting and intriguing subjects, you will enjoy RahXephon as much as I do. If you need an example from anime to make your decision, I can say that the ones liked Gasaraki will probably like RahXephon, too.
Video and audio quality of this DVD edition is very good. Most anime fans dislike dubbing and prefer to watch Japanese sound with English subtitles. However, subtitles are not that good. I found out that listening an important conversation, which you couldn't understand it at first, for a second time is much more efficient than figuring out what happened from subtitles. You should notice that there are actually two English subtitles. First subtitle is the regular one and the second one is similar to the "Pill" option of Akira, it only translates Japanese words on the video and background conversation on scenes such as a news heard from a TV. This second English subtitle is benefical to turn on.
Leaflets on DVD's are very wellcome and useful. There are fully coloured drawings of mechas and persons together with a brief information. The leaflet of this first volume also includes short interviews with Japanese cast but no translation notes this time. I hope they will reappear in the next volumes. Production sketches, opening and closing animations are there again in the extras, as well as ADV previews. The last extra is the second interview with English cast. Voice actors of Mishima, Isshiki and Sayoko answer a few questions, respectively. The questions are cliche again but not completely same the first interview. Some questions are the same and some are different. This interview is somewhat poorer than the first one, but it's OK.
Fourth volume has four episodes which reveal much more secrets than the previous volumes. I, as a science fiction fan, give five stars to this volume as well as the other three and I am looking forward for the rest.

5.0 out of 5 stars The beginning of my respect for the series... 25 May 2004
By Scot McGinn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The first three volumes of Rahxephon were good anime. The story was building at a nice pace and the characters becoming very interesting. Since we were still pretty early on in the series with volume four, I didn't quite know what to excpect. I have seen shows that have done well to this point and then suddenly shift gears and stall like a plane racing for the ground. For this reason, I couldn't quite get into the show, as I was waiting for the stall...
Instead I got some of the best anime I have ever seen. One thing that truly amazes me about the Rahxephon series is the character development. If you see someone on the screen, you're going to get some back story on them eventually. And the more and more you start knowing about the MANY characters in this series, the much more complicated and facinating it becomes.
The beautiful art, imagery, and music are just the icing on the cake. Rahxephon has so much going for it that I don't hesitate giving this DVD and series high praise.
5.0 out of 5 stars Good Animation 25 Nov 2012

5.0 out of 5 stars Dissonace 26 Feb 2004
By Akira - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The previous reviews basically tell you what the content of this volume is about so I'll just give my thoughts on it. What I really like about this volume and the series in whole are the relationships between the characters. As well as thier individual development. With this volume in particular the trust between Ayato and the people around him are really pushed to the limits. And this volume does a great job with this all while keeping the story interesting. That's what makes me really like this anime series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Changing the Key 6 Aug 2003
By Marc Ruby™ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This fourth DVD in the series opens with a mounting puzzle about the nature of Quon Kisaragi. Haruka has become obsessed with finding out the truth for motivations which are not entirely clear. But her ability to enter the RahXephon has drawn intense interest, including the Mu, who send a new Dolem to send a message only Quon and Ayato can hear. This crisis has repercussions that will affect the rest of the series.
Even so there is little warning for the view about the plot shift to come. If there is a question about Quon's nature, the mystery of Ayato's is even darker. Elvy, the pilot from TERRA, is equipped with a new giant robot named Vermillion. This weapon is every bit as powerful as the RahXephon, and Elvy's competitiveness runs away with her when she finds out that Ayato is not entirely human.
But Ayato had no idea of his reality either and the discover shatters his self-possession. While he fights both his sense of alienation and his feelings of betrayal we are led deeper into what appears to be a 500 year old mystery surrounding the Bahbem mansion which has come to fruition in it's attempt to create a line of 'instrumentalists' who can wield the powers of the Mu. Thus, this DVD ends with more questions than it began with.
Almost lost in all of this is a touching look at Megumi, Haruka's younger sister. We discover that her obnoxious exterior hides a surprising sensitivity. Certainly, this set of episodes contains strong performances on all sides.
RahXephon continues its appeal to a more thoughtful audience than it's giant robo parents. There are clear parallels to Evangelion, but it is really a different and deeper story. Director Yutaka Izubuchi is looking deeper than surface character defects, and the ingenuity of its 'battle system' has yet to yield the same horrific violence. This isn't a criticism of either series, just an indication of their core differences.
