4.0 out of 5 stars The music fades out... 17 Oct 2009
By @GeekZilla9000 TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This DVD is the last volume in this excellent series and contains the final three episodes (24 - 26 inclusive).

The series ends as it always went on - impressive but baffling! As the final credits rolled I felt as though I'd watched the end of a quality series and I got the general gist of what was happening, but I have to admit that I will have to re-watch the series to catch everything I missed first time around.

This volume starts with lots of inner soul searching among the characters and there are answers to some of the dynastic questions we've had whilst watching the series - we now know who is related to who, and how. The enigmatic Quon emerges from the background and instead of a quirky spiritual babe she establishes herself as one of the strongest characters in this volume, and certainly one of the key players.

There are revelations and unexpected departures from this mortal coil, all of which compound the emotional side of this series. Speaking of emotional - expect a couple of great moments between Ayato and Haruka, one of which occurs *after* the final credits and feels like a solid tie-in to the whole series - so make sure you let the disk play through to the end.

In a nutshell: With so many ideas getting tangled up in 26 episodes, it was always going to be a challenge to neatly close the story and make sense of everything - so did the makers of Rahxephon achieve it? Well, nearly. But that's not a criticism of the series, it's great that it didn't dumb down, it would have had wider appeal if it had - but it wouldn't have stood out so much. This proves that anime isn't just for kids and this is a series which requires at least another viewing to 'tune' into exactly what is happening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh one who will tune the world... 22 Feb 2005
Format:DVD
As a great symphony is composed, so also must the world. All that which has been sown in the Mu's and the Xephon's path now comes together to decide the fate of the world. Will it be tuned to the Mu's ideals, or will humanity be able to hold on to their only home.
Amidst all the confusion, great deeds are performed at a terrible cost, and all the while the fate of the world hangs over the head of the Rahxephon and its pilot. As Ayto struggles to find himself amidst the turmoil, a voice calls out to him.
This is merely the begining of history. Worlds shall change as all is born anew in the seventh volume of Rahxephon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Several U-Turns Ahead 17 Dec 2003
By Marc Ruby™ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Not unexpectedly, the conclusion of this series is apocalyptic. After being forced to action after fleeing from the disasters of the previous episodes Ayato Kamino finds himself at a crossroads in his own quest for identity. He fears that, if he gives in to the call of the RahXephon, he will lose his own personality. But the war between the Mu and humanity reaches a fevered pitch around him. If he does not commit, the ruin of what he loves is inevitable. Torn between his love for Haruka and the lure of Quon, Ayato most make a great leap of faith, with results that are difficult to absorb.
Watching these episodes is like falling through one layer of deception after another. Like an onion, the viewer first sees the interpersonal deceptions, then the deceptions of Mu and human, and finally the deceptions created by director Yutaka Izubuchi. These components are so intertwined that it is impossible to determine whether Izubuchi was deadly serious or tongue-in-cheek. This creates an intentional air of unease which is hardly relieved when the entire plot is once again stood on its head on last, glorious time. After pointing out that RahXephon was quite a bit different than Evangelion, These final episodes unexpectedly reestablishe RahXephons relationship to its noble predecesspr, while retaining a great deal of independent creativity.
From all production viewpoints - art, animation, music, acting, etc. - these final moments are outstanding, frame after frame. I have to say that I'm happy to have decided to follow the series, even if I haven't quite figured out what to make of it. As in much of art, you have to decide what it is you want to believe, which may very well be the point being the conclusion. In any case I don't think you will be disappointed - stunned maybe - but not disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars I like this series just as much as NGE. 5 April 2004
By Issei Takechi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This series is vastly less well-known than Neon Genesis Evangelion even in Japan partly because it was broadcast after midnight. The release of the theater version last spring did not make much of a splash, either.
In my opinion NGE is ultimately a story of a family disguised as sci-fi anime, and RahXephone seems to cover a similar terrain as the story centers around Ayato Kamina's identity crisis and his search for his true self. As in NGE, the primary characters here feel somewhat alienated against each other and struggle hard to get their true feelings across. It is in this respect that the Jupiter barrier is to this series what the AT field is to NGE as they both represent the mental barriers that the characters harbor deep inside themselves. However, befitting their adolescent mentality, Ayato's and Haruka's yearning for each other seems more sugarcoated and thus less urgent than Shinji Ikari's yearning for love and recognition.
All the references to ancient mythology and music are ultimately peripheral to the main argument of this series. And I must admit that I could not get all the characters' names right until the very end of the series. That said, I am glad that I have seen the series and like this one no less than Neon Genesis Evangelion.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Animes I've ever seen 20 Oct 2004
By Anime Dork - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Wow. That's the only word I can think of to describe how I felt when I finished the show. This show alone makes me want to expand my vocabulary just so that I can find a way to praise this series to the greatest extent that I am capable of.

From the very beginning of Rahxephon, I was intrigued, though I wasn't sure what to make of it at first. Each episode became like a piece of a puzzle that slowly put together the whole picture of everything that was going on. And most surprisingly of all, was the touching romance found throughout. The love between the two main characters is so deep and beautiful that it leaves you with that warm fuzzy feeling you get after drinking hot chocolate on a cold day.

This last volume was simply amazing. I was blown away by the animation, which not only exceeded my expectations, but practically tossed them out the window. Everything was gorgeous. The backgrounds, the character designs, even the mecha. Just about everything you wanted to know about is explained perfectly and carefully, without ever feeling rushed or ridiculous, while some of the more discreet elements are left shrouded in mystery to ponder later and during repeated viewings.

And best of all, the ending is wondeful and leaves you happy. I can't tell you how important of a thing that is. Lately, I've found myself extremely disappointed with anime endings. Wild Arms and Orphen, which left me confused and annoyed, Noir and Lain, which both left me feeling depressed and annoyed. Berserk... I'm not even going to go into how that anime ended. Full Metal Panic, definitely disappointed me. Come to think of it, a lot of animes just leave you thinking "that's it? Where the heck is the rest!" But not Rahxephon. It left me smiling and feeling very pleased and moved.

To those that unfairly compare this to Neon Genesis Evangelion, please try and be fair. I personally didn't even find myself thinking of the other show at all while I watched it. Definitely a new favorite of mine. I hope others enjoy it as much as I did. ^_^
5.0 out of 5 stars Encore! 3 Jan 2004
By toxiclight - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
For those of you who've seen the whole of Evangelion and have vowed to do terrible things to Hideaki Anno should you ever meet him, watch Rah-Xephon and see the series Eva should have been.
It does cover almost exactly the same ground as Eva, but with enough differences and more importantly enough coherency that your not left saying what the... after the final episode. Easily as good as the series that so clearly inspired it.
Crescendo, wraps the series perfectly, answering just enough questions to prevent the outcry that greeted Evangelion, but leaving enough unanswered to avoid critisism that the show was dumbed down.

RahXephon: Orchestration 7: Crescendo
At long last, the war with the Mu reaches its climax. The truths that have been hidden are finally revealed. As Ayato stands on the brink of making the ultimate choice, the future of not just one man and one woman, but of two sentient races, hangs in the balance. The symphony of light and terror, of treachery and love, at last completes itself in the final astounding volume of RahXephon.
This sereis is great! I love the music! This is a must see anime, if you are a fan of Scifi, Mecha, and Romanace!
Running Time: Approx. 75 Mins.
