The city of Tokyo hasibeen overthrown, taken over by the Mu, invaders who have devastated the rest of the planet.Within the domed walls of the city, however,time flows in a different path, and none of the citizens even know they've been conquered. Outside Tokyo, the remnants of the human race have fought a desperate 15-year war against the Mu, knowing only that the key to victory lies within the occupied city. But no one has been able toiget into Tokyo—until Ayato Kamina, a young resident fleeing a horrifying attack on the city, unwittingly breaks out. An extraordinary mystery unfolds as Ayato confronts a world he has never known, and begins to learn the horrifying secrets of RahXephon,a humanoid super weapon which apparently only he can control.
Hannah's comments: Very good sci-fi series, but also Very complicated series, too many characters, especially when some come new to you as the series continue, some are lost. The sound isn't as good as in "Neon Genesis", but still ok. The theme is quite hard to understand. Why is the Mu's taking over Earth? Why is the music (D-symphony etc) so important in a way, but in another not? The series is about two worlds, but hard to follow the world at present. Animation is good,good good, not only the drawing, also the colours. I sometimes felt it was relaxing to see the harmony of the colours. If you have seen "Neon Genesis Evangelion", you definitely can draw parallel lines to that series. Further on, I might write down the names of the most important characters,just for my own sake, to keep track of all people.
