I haven't watched the OVA, just the TV series.

About other Robert F. Young. He was a big romantic and a storyteller at its best. About a variety of incredible things he wrote calmly and confidently, with conviction, and - with love. Then reading, you (I'm speaking of myself, of course) dissolve in his stories and believe every word, as if it didn't look impossible.
I havn't reed all of his novells and stories, but from what I've read I like this:

"Flying Pan" - Funny story. Graceful in form, very good in content, with subtle humor. A wonderful equation that the author made in the beginning of the story, does not go out of my head

"An Apple for the Teacher" - Not a bad one. At the heart of this story a school essay on "What I Did Over My Summer Vacation."

"When Time Was New" - Absolutely exceptional in its lyricism story. In one row it is possible to put only "The Door into Summer" by Robert A. Heinlein and "The Dandelion Girl".

"Eridahn" (remake of "When Time was New") - The thing itself is good. But objectively worse than the original, as obtained by adding some fillers.

"Beauty and the Beast" - The story describes a common "gray mouse" - a typical dull and unsympathetic secretary of Earth expedition to Procyon 31, suffering from a terrible loneliness and very worried because of this.
A good psychological story with a positive ending.

"Miss Katy Three" - One of the best stories of Young. A striking example of lyrical fiction - a genre in which the author has no equal.

"To See Ourselves" - Short uncomplicated humoresque in the "Robert Sheckley - style" although here scored another Robert *laughs*

"The Stars Are Calling, Mr. Keats" - The story about the plight of retired astronaut. Forgotten and abandoned by society, hated by his family, but not forgotten by space, and not forgetting the stars, which a still call him...

About episodes naming:

05 - "Nirai-Kanai - On Earth As It Is In Heaven" - referencies to bible - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lord%27s_Prayer
16 - "Island of Others - The Moon Princess" - Japanese legend - "The Tale of Princess Kaguya" - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tale_of_the_Bamboo_Cutter
23 - "[From Here To Eternity] - Where The Sweet Bird Song" - novell by James Jones "From Here to Eternity" about Pearl Harbor - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Jones_(author)
26 - "Far Beyond Eternity - Time Enough For Love" - reference to "Time Enough for Love" by Robert A. Heinlein

Hey Kanon! I didn't know you finished RahXephon. Well, you sure enjoyed it more than I tried to enjoy Maison Ikkoku and Ushio to Tora (boring shounen series, I know).
Akagi-kun Aug 21, 10:13 PM
Good that you liked it, finally. I was even a little worried, thinking don't like it.
But I still would like you to read this, if you want to, of course:

https://infinitemirai.files.wordpress.com/2013/09/young-robert-f-the-dandelion-girl.pdf

And did you know several facts about episodes naming referencies in RahXephon?

For example -

1. Operation "Overlodrd"
15. Arthur C. Clarke. "Childhood's End"
...

I think Asahina really loved Ayato.
As for Ayato. Ayato soothes Asahina and lies about the color of her blood. It just emotions? No - it's just a pity and an rational mind. He could not tell her something like: "Congratulations, Asahina, your blood is blue. Strange things go on here, you know. Live and be happy if you can, but i'm get the [bleep] out of here.." That would be a great shock to Asahina (I'd say that's an understatement). But Ayato's not at all like that. He's trying to protect her - and, again, the reason is clear - he is alone in this new world, he so sick of people from "Terra", and Asahina just one person from his former carefree and happy world, so he is "grabs her all his hands ".
That's how I think...

The story will become clearer in the end. Even clearer, if you look at an RahXephon movie after series.
Akagi-kun Aug 17, 12:14 PM
Hi. It seems you probably upset by Asahina's sad death?
Kurt_Irving Aug 14, 2:25 PM
Of course, I don't really care much for josei manga, but this series is great thanks to the Tezuka Productions guys, Shinichiro Watanabe and Yoko Kanno. It's the best romance drama anime I've ever watched.

I'm glad to hear you say that.
RahXephon one of my favorite anime show.
AzzurroNinja97X Aug 12, 5:25 PM
Sadly no. =/ I have only seen a few Shoujo romance anime's. But I heard there are plenty of them. Like Ao Haru Ride, and others. I mainly read Seinen romance series. =/
VincentHarkonnen Aug 12, 12:23 PM
Haha, so how are you enjoying RahXephon? :D I thought that it was decent personally, but as far as the "deeper" Mecha shows go, I still like Giant Robo and The Big O the most.
Akagi-kun Aug 12, 4:20 AM
> No, I haven't read it.

Well, I highly recommend you to read it, but only when you've got done watching RahXephon.
Kurt_Irving Aug 11, 6:37 PM
I see that you gave The Castle of Cagliostro movie a 6, but that's alright. I prefer the Red Jacket Lupin from 1977 (I remember I used to watch this and Cowboy Bebop side to side 13 years ago on TV) and Lupin does not wear a green jacket in the manga.

I see that you're watching RahXephon. I won't spoil it for you, but if you like jazz music (which is more similar to Kids on the Slope than Cowboy Bebop's OST, but I prefer the 1950s bebop jazz to smooth jazz a bit more) and ominous soundtracks, then this anime is for you.
Akagi-kun Aug 11, 1:15 AM
Hi there!
I just saw that you start watching RahXephon. Just a little comment. Please, while watching, don't compare this anime with NGE.
P.S. Have you read "The Dandelion Girl" by Robert F. Young?
