True enough...
I didn't even know the Series existed until after I saw the movie, though....
Personally, I still say the movie was better.

Hi guys!

I want to watch Rahxephon...but I don't really know what it is about. (Well, of course, in order to know, I have to watch it)

But it just that...I don't really like triangle love kind of story. (That's why I don't really watch Macross series) And I saw THREE girls, the long brown hair one, the short blue hair one, and the long pink hair one...are they kind of all involved with the main character?

Sorry for asking such a weird question...

Thanks

They are, though not in the form on a live triangle per say. Though i can tell you the show doesn't involve the typical form of love triangle so you should be alright.

Give it a try anyway, because it's one hell of a show and not to be missed.

It's basically about a boy dealing with his destiny. Not as deep as EVA, but pretty involved.

Yeah, don't worry. RahXephon is nothing like Macross (though I do like Macross). But there are no true love triangles with girls duking it out over a boy in this series. Don't miss out on it just cause of something like that.

Reminds me, I need to buy a dvd box set of RahXephon....

The LAST thing you have to worry about in RahXephon, is a love triangle debacle like in Macross Frontier. Believe me, things are settled much better IMO. Watch the movie afterwards for some added treats not seen in the series.

You should get to that before the show seems near impossible to buy.

Why would it be impossible to buy? But anyway, went out and got it today so it's ok.

Well we know how these things sooner or later start to stop going on sale. It's happening to quite a few boxsets i want these days.

I need to get a hold of the movie sometime soon.

I bought this series as it came out along with the movie. Never regreted it. I'm quite fond of the music in it.

Here's a youtube link, the source for one of the major themes.

Prince Igor Polovtsian Dances Part1-2

Well it's more a re-telling of the series condensed into a movie. So they cut through a lot. Definitely suggest checking it. And the theme song is Godly.

If you enjoyed the series then the movie is definitely worth watching imo. It's a great piece.

I also recommend the novels. Plenty of insight into parts that were never touched upon in the series.

It is really a retelling and it wouldn't make sense to watch it alone since it left out too many things to be understandable alone. But it also explains some things you might not have understood in the series.

SageGaiGar, do you mean 'Katun no Dsadame' (Katuns' Fate)? It is in my top ten of favourite songs.

Yeah, but also "Garden of everything' duet between Steve Conte and Maaya Sakamoto.

Except you are wrong DragoZERO, that's not who you think that is. It's Rahxephon's spirit.
