Unhappy RahXephon The Movie

Did I miss something with this one?... I thought I heard that ADV licensed RahXephon The Movie, but did it even reach the subbers. I watch the RahXephon series when it was a fub-sub and loved that version too much to change the characters now by resorting to the dubbed verson (if there is one) of the extension of the series. Can someone let me know what happened here?...was I asleep and missed an opportunity at it? ANN has its birth date at 4-30-03 and I havent even come across a broken link for it..nothing

Why bother fansubbing a movie that was licensed before it even went into theaters?

Also, I don't think the DVD of the movie is out yet in Japan, so even if a fansub group wanted to do it, they wouldn't have any material to work with.

What on earth are you talking about?

There's a dub, there almost always is. And since Raxhephon is only on DVD, you don't even have to watch it dubbed. There's a sub track and Japanese audio, watch that if you want to.

The movie is now out on R2 DVD. I even had a copy of the raw movie for awhile, but I never got around to watching it and just deleted it because I knew I would never get it all anyways unsubbed. My Japanese isn't that good yet. =p

The RahXephon movie is simply a rehashing of the episodes, with one character removed, and they also tacked on an opening and maybe an ending of new material. Sort of a summary/prequel added version of the series, if you will.

I managed to obtain a French sub of the Rahxephon movie. B/C of these language issues, I didn't quite understand the ending.. anyone care to post some spoilers?

Rahxephon The Movie is already licensed by ADV. Another thread already exists about this movie here.

Thread closed.

RahXephon: Pluralitis Concentio (Movie)

Has anyone seen it? I have the DVD and after I watched it, I asked myself, what the fuck just happened? While 75% of the animation is recycled from the TV series, it's a completely different story. Certain events that occured in the TV series are either re-written in the movie, or don't happen at all. Relationships between the characters are different as well, and certain characters who died at the end of the series don't die until Ayato tunes the world. Personally, I think if you haven't seen the series and watched the movie, you won't be lost at all. If you watch the movie after seeing the TV series, I guarantee you that you'll be wondering what the hell is going on. By far, RahXephon is my favorite series at this point, and while I liked the movie, I found the original story to be way better than the movie.

to be honest, I don't like the RahXephon movie. I love the TV series much better. They buthered the love story plot in the TV series and put some very weird EVA clone stuff in the movie, and a lot of the new/modified elements in the movie are for the worse imo.

If you've watched the series, the movie would feel like a supplementary that filled in the holes of the series from a different perspective. You get to see some of Ayato's past more clearly, and you get to see certain events that are not in the series that could've happened. (just 1 or 2 I think...)

Anyway, I still like the series more despite the number of characters and subplots it had--but I also like the movie for its twist in the end.

RahXephon Movie audio error

Anime on DVD's Glitch Disc segment lists this problem for RahXephon movie;

"On the Japanese 5.1 track for the first half or so of the movie, all the dialog was coming from the front right channel and not the front center channel. At chapter 5, the japanese audio sounded the way it should - dialog back to center and right surround back to the correct volume."


I have the movie, but I don't have any audio set-up of consequence. How can I tell if I have a flawed disc?

Yes, I have heard of this and I did get the same problem, so I notified ADV and got a replacement for it. Heck, I'm surprised that they mailed me a copy since I live outside the US. I wish I could say the same about my GITS: SAC SE Vol.1.

From what I've heard, almost everyone--if not all--got the same glitch. If you are able to, you might want to play your copy on a friend's 5.1 setup just to make sure. However, it's also possible that they've remedied the problem by now, so if you bought your copy just recently then maybe there's really no problem. Don't take my word for it though.

I have the RahXephon Movie and you need an audio system to really tell that the Japanese audio is ****** up. I couldn't even finish the movie cause there was no way I was going to watch it dubbed. It's a good thing ADV's replacement program was very easy.

I preordered it to get the new box, so I guess I probably have the bad disc. I guess I'll just ask for a new one.
