RahXephon starts

July 31st, 2007 by Author

I saw a couple of episodes years ago at a con and it looked somewhat interesting. Blogs I read since then claimed it to be “Eva done right”, “love story”, and other such things, so I decided to give it a try. We don’t have a lot of things which interest me in R1 anyway.

On the whole RahXephon does not disappoint. It’s a pleasant watching, nothing terribly bad. Ep.04 scared me a bit, because I started to sense the boymecha coming. That would be bad, but apparently it develops very slowly, and I do not think it’s only so dumb, so it’s fine.

Animation is fairly basic. Hair is reflex-free, the jawline would not be out of place in Crescent Love. But they did not skimp on eyes. So it’s quite serviceable. I’d place it somewhere a bit below Kamichu.
