Rahxephon is one of my longtime favourite mecha anime.It has similiarity with Evangelion and Macross,but it is actually wildly different.

You can view Rahxephon from two ways;action and love.The love between Ayato and Haruka is so deep,that it even transcend time and space.It is not some cheesy love story.I especialy like how the director added a little touch at the ending,where it showed how they met each other.You must not miss that very last part.Don't close the video after the credits is shown.Stay a little while longer.Some animes have clips after the ending song to conclude everything.That scene is one of the best in the show.

There are some animes where the characters serve little to no purpose.They are just there to be puppets or to annoy the viewers.But in here,every character is involved with the story,and their actions influence the flow of the story.The characters here are interesting.They have their own personalities,and secrets as well.Ayato is obviously my favourite character.He is not to be underestimated as just another of those hero.He is a complex and an intriguing one.And so does everyone else.You just want to find out more about them.Most mecha series revolves around the heroes fighting the enemies off and some character development and romance in the way.Rahxephon prove to break away from the tradition with those unique characters.

One thing that truly stands out is the sounds and musics.It compliments the scenes beautifully,making the show even more enjoyable.

The story started out like Evangelion.Yeah i can't deny that,but soon it proved itself as a series that stands on its own,as all sorts of secrets and shocking events are revealed.The story is complex,but not to the level of Evangelion.The ending is actually pretty good,and a satisfactory one,although i have some questions left.

I must congratulate BONES for bringing another great series.The animation is very good,and i like the mecha designs,except for those Dolems that kind of look like veges to me.Do watch out for the battle scenes,as the sequences are good and the music complimenting it is good as well.

Do look out for this story if you like a compelling mecha and love story.Please stay away if you like a straightforward plot.

Yes........tuning the world....It really reflects the current reality in our world
