    just watched through the first 15 episodes, waiting for 16-26 to be subbed.

    i like it a lot so far :bigok: it shares more than a passing resemblance to NGE, from the characters, to the story, to the rah/eva type creatures. the lead charater isn't quite as annoying as shinji is, he's a little older so i think that helps, but the rahxephon isn't quite as cool as eva-1 :hs: (but what is :hsd: )

    should be interesting to see how it ends, so im holding off judgement till then. story is progressing nicely though.

    and while it looks like it might be cool.. there is one thing

    i hope the plot doesn't turn out excatly like Blue Gender, which it looks like it might, then the only original thing about the show would be the music aspect :hs:

    haven't seen that other series, but like i said before... a lot of people hail rahxephon as everything that NGE was supposed to be. personally, i liked it much better.

    i found a torrent the other day claiming that there's a rahxephon movie... is this true? there were no seeders, so i couldn't confirm it.

    i would hardly call it everything nge was supposed to be... it makes up for a lot of what nge lacked (continual plot develepment, resolutions and such..) but it's missing that bond between the pilot and the eva-type that made nge so cool :dunno: .. it's very well done, but doesn't seem to have the same soul :hs:

    i don't quite agree with that either... just saying that that's what alot of people say. but you might change your mind, you're only done half the series ;)

    Would that be the one titled -
    RahXephon Pluralitas Concentio [IDEALIZE]
    found at suprnova?

    If not, may I ask where you found it?

    I know there was, at the very least, SUPPOSED to be a RahXephon movie, but I don't know if it was ever released (completed?).

    yea that's the one... but i think i saw it on bytemonsoon. i think someone posted that that's actually the title of an OST or something... :dunno: i'd really like to know if that's really it.

    Well, I got the torrent from suprnova, and I've started my download. Here's what the torrent contains -
    Main folder -
    -RahXephon Pluralitas Concentio [IDEALIZE].Part1.1DEA112E.ogm
    -RahXephon Pluralitas Concentio [IDEALIZE].Part2.1DEA112E.ogm
    -RahXephon Pluralitas Concentio.sfv
    -Subfolder titled "support"

    Subfolder "support" -
    -ac3filter_0_70b.exe
    -CoreVorbis_1.0b6_20031215.exe
    -mpc2kxp6472.zip
    -mpc98me6472.zip
    -readme.txt

    I don't know jack about .ogm files, and I have no clue what anything in the "support" folder is, but I'll check on the "readme.txt" file periodically to see if it's completed. I'd be kinda surprised if it's a 1 gig+ file for an OST, but who knows :dunno:

    ahh ok. let me know if that's it :x:

    ogm is a file format that allows you to view the video with different audio tracks and subtitles... kind of in the fashion as a dvd. you can use a program like vobsub, and i think you can use WMP to select what you want as well. it looks like the files in the support folder are just codecs that are needed to play the file.

    the movie is on suprnova, i'll reseed if anyone wants me to tonight.


    the movie is focused more on haruka then on ayato, and is a little different storywise. of course its been condensed so characters and plot elements have been written out. but those aside both stories add to each other, since they are different people perspectives both can be just as true
    except how quon is portrayed as sleeping beauty in the movie, this IMO was done so you understand Barbem and Quon better and why Ayato was sought after by Barbem


    the 15 minutes Quon ova focuses on what happens after she picksup the phone on the bridge
    and how she is the mother of ayato and itsuki who are twins

    episodes 19-26 are IMO are some of the best story telling ever :o

    Why didn't you get the "RahXephon Complete" torrent on suprnova? It has all episodes fansubbed.

    Well, I got it, but the video is REALLY jerky. It looks almost as if it's play frame 1, frame 3, frame 2, frame 4, etc. Anybody know what I can do to get it to play smoothly?

    hmm that's weird. i just tried running it, and altho WMP said it had an error downloading a codec, the video and audio are just fine for me. try updating your xvid codec...
