Movie Info

Ayato Kamina thinks that he is just another high school student with his own small part to play in the world until the day he meets the eerily familiar Reika Mishima. In a moment of extreme danger, Reika rescues Ayato and takes him outside of Tokyo, where it can be seen that the entire city is locked inside of a giant sphere. She explains to Ayato that the city he came from is now called Tokyo Jupiter and has been under the control of a menacing "alien" race called the Mu for the last decade. A condensed telling of the storyline in the Rahxephon series, Rahxephon: The Motion Picture explores Ayato's role as a creature of different origins than his peers, thus enabling him to pilot a specialized mecha called a Rahxephon, the only hope that humanity has for surviving against the Mu. Rahxephon: The Motion Picture draws inspiration from series such as Neon Genesis Evangelion in both appearance and metaphysical subtext. It also touches on the questions that arise as a result of the difference in the passage of time between Tokyo Jupiter and the outside world. Where is Ayato's true place in the world? And is there a reason that Reika seems so familiar? ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

This is a good movie that you have to see the show all the way through to get. But it still delivers it's great plot characters ans story. The visuals are fantastic as well as the music. This is an anime of one of my top favorites which is saying something. 9 out of 10.

While it doesn't carry the weight of the 10 hour series, the movie is still a good piece of work, though I would recommend watching it after having seen the series. The added scenes with young Ayato and Haruka were especially touching and enjoyable for me.

it can't top the series, and the change in roles for some characters is a little hard for me to swallow, but it still draws from the same godly awesome well as the series. watch the series first, though...there are some things that are overtly explained in the movie that would ruin the subtlety and mystery in the series.
