5.0 out of 5 stars If you call yourself an otaku, you must watch this series!, 14 Jan. 2004

This review is from: RahXephon - Vol 1 [2003] [DVD] (DVD)
RahXephon is a science fiction anime which seemed (in my opinion) to be a cross between Neon Genesis Evangelion, Detonator Orgun and the Matrix. It's about a teenage boy called Ayato who lives inside a city in a dome called Tokyo Jupiter. The people there believe that the rest of the world has been destroyed and that they are all that is left but in reality their city has been taken over by the evil Mu and isolated from the rest of the world. After part of the city is bombed, Ayato wanders through the rubble and finds a mysterious girl from his class. Uncertain of what is going on, Ayato follows her and finds himself in a huge underground temple called the 'Room of Ra'. Here he witnesses a huge mecha called the RahXephon hatch from an egg and bonds with it. This makes him valuable to TERRA, the anti-Mulean resistance group as they see the RahXephon as being an easy way for them to destroy the Mu's own mechas (the Dolems). The only problem is Ayato's reluctance to join him as he is forced to leave his friends and his mother, whom he knows is a Mulean...
The animation and soundtrack of RahXephon is absolutely stunning, as are many of the voice actors in the American dub. As I have already said, the plot seems to be a cross between many other stories but all of the characters are very deep and so I expect they will develop very well through out the series. It also manages, like animes such as Trigun, Outlaw Star and Generator Gawl, to be serious and have some humour at the same time and so it lightens the mood and so prevents it from being overly dark and depressing. I love this anime and will certainly watch it more. I would reccomend it to everyone ^0^
