RahXephon <-> GAINAX !?

Credits from the very last episode of RahXephon...

:? :?:

Have I missed something really important here? Did GAINAX have anything to do with the making of RahXephon?

Gainax often do various bits of animation work. There's gainax credits on all sorts of things - Alien 9, Spirited Away etc etc.

Had no idea :)
Does that mean GAINAX didn't create Eva on their own?

no; the credit you show above just means that Gainax, like the other studios listed around it, needed a little cash and Bones had some animation that needed to be done pronto, so they took it on as a subcontract.

Of course, the opinion of most of the people I saw the series with, once this was pointed out, was that the RX prod crew had stolen so much stuff from Eva in terms of plot, characters, etc, that they kind of HAD to give Gainax some subcontract work so they wouldn't end up getting sued.

By the way, a good (and extremely entertaining) way of finding out about how animation studios do their thing is to track down the one-off OVA 'Animation Runner Kuromi-Chan'. Very, very funny and actually quite informative too.

Yes and those people are obviously not the hsarpest tools in the shed because RahXephon is totally different than Eva.

Well I have to admit that the RahX looked like a total rip-off the first 2 eps, but I can't say the plots are anywhere near eachother when you get to know the whole story :wink:

peripherally.......RX started off with major rip-off overtones, then sort of fixed itself in the middle, but for lack of a better way of ending itself defaulted straight into Eva mode at the end.....though Ayato's choice turns out the opposite of Shinji's.

The exterior fittings are different in many places, but structurally, the similarities between RX and Eva greatly outweigh the differences.
