But he does not know that he might not like the horrible truth of the past, hidden deep inside his mind...

Casshern Sins

"A hidden diamond lost in the abyss of Anime" Katerin


This story is mature. If your into shonen, this isn't for you. Its dark, gritty, and depressing. Casshern lost his own memories suddenly everyone is trying to kill Casshern because this guy ruin the world by killing the sun
how and why he kill the sun?!... now the whole universe is dying because of that

great sound enjoyment, but the music is pretty sad and the opining isn't my favorite but it's very good

The animation is splendid, as the character designs are beautiful and dark. The action scenes, and the coloring really bring out read more

The best word to describe Casshern Sins would be "poetic".
Don't be fooled by the super hero outfit and the dynamic opening song, this anime is slow and soft, even if there are some action scenes. I haven't watched the old Casshern series so I can't compare, but I'm pretty sure it is totally different in everything.

The main strong point of Casshern Sins is its animation, everyone know it. You can dislike the bug face of the characters but their body are wonderful, the art is wonderful. Surely one of the best animation ever created, whenever you pause the anime the image is beautiful, that's why read more

Casshern Sins is not for everyone. The show pretty much moves at one pace, and that pace is ’slow’. There is a lot of silence, introspection, and philosophical dialog. Ordinarily, this would make one assume the show is pretentious (especially since it has a lot of similarities to Texhnolyze), but it really isn’t. Casshern has a very simple plot, very simple dialog, and is easy to understand, so people looking for a mind-blower won’t find it here. The plot and messages of Casshern Sins are much more along the lines of Kino’s Journey or Mushi-shi. However, just like action fans will be turned off by read more

When it comes to an experimental anime like this, it’s quite difficult to give a conventional score. Even more so, Casshern Sins tends to polarize the audience into two groups: either calling it a work of art or being bored as hell by it.

Here’s a good test whether you may or may not like it.

Are you an anime fan one who:
A) Tolerates a continuously oppressively grim atmosphere and a snail paced plot?
B) Forgives gaping plot holes for the sake of appreciating heavy symbolism and existentialism?
C) Is fine with an acrobatic fist-fight for every single episode?
D) Doesn’t mind sparse dialogue, one-note and read more

Anime: Ergo Proxy
Very similar characters. Both involve a guy who can't remember his past traveling a wasteland searching for his purpose. They each have some action and involve lots of philosophizing.

Anime: Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World
Both are science fiction series about a journey... Kino no Tabi is about a journey through human nature and society. Casshern Sins is a journey to the end of the world, through isolation, death, despair and hope. Both are great introspective series that will challenge your view on the world.

Anime: Wolf's Rain
Both feature characters seeking salvation, unaware of what entails from searching for it. The main characters themselves have problems that are linked to what they want.
Both have high production values, have intense emotional scenes, strong moral messages, and have a harsh atmosphere.

Wolf's Rain has a much more adventurous feel to it, has an infinitely better musical score, more relatable characters, and is generally easier to enjoy.

Casshern Sins has more mystery woven into it, characters that develop more distinctively, a slightly better moral message, but it's a little harsher in presentation.

Anime: Trigun
Both shows feature a lonely protagonist wandering dystopian wastelands and deserts. Vash the Stampede and Casshern both have incredible powers, are thus victorious in many battles and seem to be invincible. While there's a large bounty on Vash's head, the inhabitants of Casshern's world believe that killing Casshern would bring them eternal life, so they are both hunted and attacked wherever they go.

Anime: Mushishi
It's not about the action, it's about the journey and the discovery of two amazingly created worlds. They both are pure piece of art!  
reportRecommended by pasteroni
Anime: Texhnolyze
Both anime have this gloomy but beautiful atmosphere and the action takes place in the future. The protagonist, an outcast, is searching for understanding of the world and so, the main thing going on in both scenarios is his journey. Both anime have another main character, a small girl who seemingly has the understanding of the world but also innocence. Answers to protagonists' questions are given in both anime.
