Storyline

Kamina Ayato lives an ordinary life. He goes to school. He lives with his mother. He has schoolmates. But all of that changes one day when massive machines, known as the Dolem, attack the city of Tokyo with their destructive vocal powers. Caught up in the chaos, Ayato meets a mysterious girl named Mishima Reika. She leads him to the sanctuary, resting place of the RahXephon, a giant humanoid being with powers to counter those of the Dolem. Upon its awakening, Ayato finds himself synchronising with the machine and it takes him to the world beyond Tokyo. It seems that Tokyo, more precisely called Tokyo Jupiter, has been cut off from the rest of the world. Those living within the boundaries of Tokyo Jupiter believe that the rest of the world has been decimated, when in fact they live in a world controlled by the Mu. Now, facing the truth, Ayato must come to terms with his new reality, for he is a central element in the fate of mankind. Written by D. Rex

Trivia

The first episode opens to the overture of Wagner's "Die Meistersinger", which will later prove to be an important reference to the theme of Rahxephon - song factors heavily in this series, and the Rahxephon and the Dolems are master singers. See more »

I really enjoyed this series.
18 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

OK, I have just finished watching RahXephon and I mean it when I say that RahXephon is a show that should not be missed by anybody who's a mecha fan, a drama type fan or an anime fan in general cause the show is just that good. The story is such an incredibly detailed story, every character is likable and has a story to tell, the art is fantastic and the animation for a lot of the battle sequences are great also. The music is wonderful and addictive and I have both the opening and closing themes. The extras on the all seven volumes are really detailed with interviews with a lot of the English and Japanese cast. Lots of production sketches that are great and a nice music video as well. A lot of fans will say that RahXephon is similar to Evangelion, in a way its similar but its a lot more of a joyful series than Evangelion, I mean Evangelion is like the black series while RahXephon is the white series. Well thats the best way I can compare it. At this point cause no doubt I will have to watch the series again to fully understand the series cause it is mind boggling like Evangelion accept no religious questions thank goodness but still I would love to watch it again.

So right now I give it a 9 out of 10 but who knows it could be the only series that I own to get a 10 out of 10 and I find it very hard to give something that but RahXephon is very close.
