Makes no sense, but popcorn fun
9 December 2011 | by (Savannah, GA - United States) – See all my reviews

The series follows Casshern in his journey to find himself and combat the Ruin, a devastation that causes his fellow robots to rust and die. An immortal killing machine, Casshern must watch everyone around him fade away. The Ruin began with the death of Luna; and rumor has it she was murdered by Casshern himself.

It's a very nice setup with strong philosophical questions. I feel, however, that the series doesn't dive deep enough into the issue of immortality vs. death. It doesn't matter though because the stylized visuals, excellent voice acting, and ferocious action keep the audience entertained. Think about the series' plot and philosophical conclusions too long, however, and you'll be disappointed.

I can't reveal anything, but let me say that after watching the whole makes no sense. The plot has several glaring holes in it. It wouldn't be so bad, except character's actions and motivations HING on these plot holes. So their actions end up not making any sense either. The series concludes with nonsensical violence and philosophical posturing. Do any of these characters understand what's going on, or why they have to accomplish their strange goals? Do they even know what those goals are??

There's a strong theme of madness and desperation in the face of eternal death, but it's nothing anime viewers haven't witnessed (and better done) before. The ending is such a let down, and the main characters' motivations so nonsensical that the slow build up to the final climax hardly seems worth it. Don't get me wrong, there are genuinely insightful moments here and there. Opening sequences before the song and titles are helpful to fill in the mysterious back story, creating tension.

But the series ending? Sorry, such nonsensical rubbish is a Sin (ho-ho! zinger!) 4 out of 10 for wasting my time.
