Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think Gainex produced RahXephon. I believe it was Bones.

But yeah. I didn't tear during the death of Asahina, but I have to admit, it was kind of hard to watch :( .


WOAH thanks for the reality check, i looked that up immediately

"In the ending credits of the last episode of RahXephon, there's the english words "GAINAX." As far as I know, studio Gainax had nothing to do with RahXephon (say for the NGE comparisons), so why would BONES have that in their ending credits?

Gainax is a production house just like any other studio and occasionally are contracted to do work for various series. They did some animation for RahXephon, that’s about it. "

how odd.


I'm not surprised. GAINAX does alot of animation work as a third party member in other studio's animes. They also worked with Bones in the Escaflowne and the Cowboy Bebop movies.

Why did she have red blood in the beginning of the series and blue in episode 19?


Anyone able to explain this to me?


Read the liner notes?


They both actually had blue blood even at the beginning because they were Mu. In fact, in the RahXephon world, everybody is at least part Mu (humans are actually a mixed race of Mu and I'm guessing cavemen), but most of the population of Tokyo Jupiter is made up of newer Mu that arrived to rebuild their colony on Earth. They had red blood earlier on because they believed they had it. The Mu genes in their blood either weren't active or they just couldn't see it because they believed they were human. The Mu seem to have been hiding on Earth for a long time, even from eachother.

Ayato is a half Mu, so he has red blood with the Mu genes in it.



well.. i remember it like...

maybe wrote:I remember somewhere being said in the anime that they had blue blood because Ayato's first escape from Tokyo Jupiter caused the world of Tokyo Jupiter to lose balance and cause change.. ... Ayato's presence in Tokyo Jupiter kept it in balance.. something like that..

maybe it was in fact:

So many interesting theories. Wish there was a way to find out the real answer (going to have to flip through the RahXephon Bible).

I love all the b*tching by Eva fanboys in those threads. Makes me feel all warm inside as an Eva hater.

Of course the shows will be similar, they both borrow heavily from the book of revelations. There's no such thing as "Eva mode" :roll:
