Good mech/drama animePosted .
Looking at my anime collection and this box set jumped out so I figured that a review wouldn't hurt! If you're familiar with Neon Genesis Evangelion, then you pretty much have RahXephon in a nutshell. Hate to say it, but the series are eerily similar with different stories. The fate of the world rests in the hands of humanity after part of Japan is shut out from the rest of the world due to a mysterious invasion. Cue giant humanoid mechs that the enemy has and humanity has gotten ahold of. The main character is way too similar to Shinji Ikari from NGE. Whiny, insecure, and unconfident to the point that you just feel embarrassed after a while. While I compare the series to NGE, it is its own anime. The visuals are wonderful and the soundtrack is very well done as well. The drama and romance aspects give it a nice distinction. RahXephon probably has one of the saddest parts in anime (in my opinion). Can definitely be a tear-jerker. Also, there aren't much in the way of interviews in the extras portion, but the amount of different anime trailers is awesome. Loved the amount and variety. Not the same on every single disc. If you love mechs mixed with a lot of plot, I'd definitely recommend this series. Bestbuy lists a RahXephon 2 which I wasn't aware existed. Will have to pick that one up and see how it is. Will review once I have.I would recommend this to a friend
