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

What would you do if you couldn't change your fate? Would you grasp at any slither of hope that presents itself, even if that hope required you to hurt someone else? Or would you accept your fate? Just letting it pass over you? This is one of the many questions that Casshern Sins asks. "What is the answer" you might wonder? Well, let us sit down together and discuss it shall we.

Casshern Sins is a remarkable feat, in that it somehow captures every single, minute detail of the human spirit. It achieves this by starting from the very basics and quickly developing on the basics read more

Erected from the pillars that once cradled human civilization, the Robotic Empire reached its pinnacle under the iron-clad rule of Braiking Boss and the grace of the Sun that was called Moon. Then came the Ruin, and with it the end of those fabled days. Once thought immortal, the empire, its structures and citizens, and even nature itself into rust and decay and death. A landscape dotted with the deceased and dying, attributed to the sins of one machine... Casshern.

Directed by Shingeyasu Yamauchi, scripted by Reiko Yoshida and Yasuko Kobayashi, and produced by Madhouse, whose resume includes the popular Death Note, the recent Chihayafuru, the read more

I started watching this anime, giving it a starting 6/10. I was up to a 9/10 within the first 7 episodes. Does that say something?

I am pleased to say that it says a lot. Casshern Sins is what looks like the most original anime of the Spring 2008 lineup, and while it may be sad, it is truly amazing to watch. (This review will update as the series goes on, if all goes well ;D)

STORY: 9/10

Casshern does not know if he is a man, robot, or neither. In a world of destruction, where humans are rarely found and the last of the robots rust, Casshern read more

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.
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.
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!
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.
Both has awesome handfights and similar spirit of journeys.
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.
