Synopsis

Ayato Kamina was separated from the girl he loved, Haruka Mishima, when an event occurred that was thought to have killed everyone outside of Tokyo. But one day three years later, invaders suddenly attacked the city. It was then that he meets an agent of TERRA, Haruka Shitow, who tells him that she will give him the truth about the world. It is the beginning of a series of strange events, which involve him activating a giant mecha, the RahXephon and finding out that many people, including his own mother, has blue blood, and that he was actually living in a self-encased dimension where time moves slower than that of the outside world.

Ah, the Rahxephon movie. How much you get dismissed.
A lot of things you might hear about the Rahxephon movie is how most of it is just copied and pasted from the series, how it's rushed and makes very little sense. This is true. BUT you need to take into consideration two things: this movie was not a theatrical release, but a made-for-TV special. Secondly, NHK demanded this movie from Bones with a ludicrous deadline that they barely completed as it is. So, with that in mind...
I think, as a stand-alone "movie", it sucks. Which is no great surprise to anybody. I do, however, think it's read more

It's been a while since I watched this movie and my memory of it as a whole was not very special, its just that it's music is one of my most favorite. With that this review says it all. I re-watched the movie a few days ago...just to clarify myself about it and boy was I thrilled.

The music was as I remembered...absolutely captivating! The movie as a whole was what would call a nice, good anime but with nothing out of the ordinary. The story was very confusing at times..indeed for those who haven't watched the anime series it can get very troublesome as they read more

Well, like any anime series that has a rise of popularity or being noteworthy, it was getting the compilation treatment of combining all 26 episodes of the series into a 120-minute feature-length film. Now projects like this often can screw up, especially in BONES’ case, although Eureka Seven made an alternate version of the series into a movie and how bad the reception it had gotten but there is the case of the two Puella Magi Madoka Magica movies that’s been running in theaters and has gotten great reception, so I’m quite skeptical on this.

Somehow, after watching the movie, some things were more clear to me, but it wasn't enough. the movie isn't some other story as it should have been to my opinon, after watching what Bones did to eureka7 movie.
The movie is like copy past of the series but with new scenes and make some thing more clear, the problem is, the series have many things to understande that building in each episode and episode, the movie didn't do something like this and just put a 26 episodes in one movie and skipping so much important things, changing characters and also deleting characters, it's not good, but read more

Beside the genre similarities, both movies are about mecha wars against aliens, complex love plots and power of the entertaining culture (music, art of painting vs.) finally they are successful spin-offs of the original series.
While in the original series characters were built and developed; in these movies most wanted fan services have been done at certain scenes.
Main characters in both series are not the strongest willed human beings they are just human (at least in appearance), they are making mistakes like all humans.
Last main comparison is usage of music in the movies. RahXephon uses the music in a more decent  read more

Mecha, Romance and two strong protagonists, what's not to like? The signature Gundam series shares many themes with RahXephon but can fall a bit more on the "technical side" of robots rather than its romance. However, it's a great watch despite its age.

Two love stories involving alternative worlds and giant robots. I also found that both had very moving scores and similar pacing. Both are movies based off of anime.
