Synopsis:

Kamina Ayato may seem like an average boy in a devastated world, but after being captured in order to save the world from the Mu, an alien race set on "tuning" the world, he realizes he is an instrument in deciding the fate of humanity and piloting RahXephon. Not only is Ayato the only person who can control the mecha, but he also has a terrible fate of his own. Holding onto memories of a past love and grasping to keep his own humanity, he must struggle in this new world and realize his true potential. The RX movie is a condensed version of the TV series.

Shinji Ikari is a lonely and disturbed boy who was specially selected to be one of the three child pilots for the Evangelions; however, fighting his fears and battling alien creatures are two very different things, and neither is easy. Can Shinji conquer his weaknesses in time to save humanity, or will his confused emotions and the Angels doom the entire world to extinction?

If you prefer to see the condensed version of an anime series, or alternate retelling, both RahXephon the Motion Picture and Death and Rebirth allow the entire series to be encapsulated within the feature length. Both are mecha based, have a main protagonist who for reasons against his will fight to save the world and follow the same show format. As a result, if you enjoyed the shortened version of either series, then the other will be a good compliment to go with it.

Both movies are a condenced version of their anime. Both are quite jumbled and are hard to follow even if you have seen the series relating to them. The stories are similar as well. Check one out if you liked the other but only if you have seen their series first.

Everything seems perfect until some of the boomers go crazy and start killing people. The only hope of stopping them is the Knight Sabers, a group of 4 female heroes in form-fitting power suits, with which they can perform amazing feats of strength and agility.

Just one reason: more Konaka goodness°°°/!

A tad more seriously and thoroughly: if you enjoyed this show, it is quite likely that you were enthralled by its intriguing, deep and stimulating script, so give this other show a try, as we are talking about the same scripter here!

Can the same scripter be a sufficient element to favour any show?

Imho, yes. At least if it's about some big shot like Konaka or few others that we are talking about.

Such a capable artist doesn't limit his part to providing a top-notch script: his genius pervades the whole work and other elements like the soundtrack, the fluidity of animation and even the directing become merely instrumental in conveying deeper meanings.

A tad more seriously and thoroughly: if you enjoyed this show, it is quite likely that you weren't taken by an astonishing graphic appeal; you were much more likely taken by the story's deeper meaning and by how they were told to you.

Is a name still a quality guarantee in the modern day anime industry?

If we are talking about few very respected names like Konaka, Kuroda or Shinkai, my answer is without doubt "yes".

At the end of World War II, Japan was split and a great tower was erected that reached the skies. For three friends, Hiroki, Takuya, and Sayuri, memories of their summer spent together would stay with them forever. During that precious time, the three promised to one day travel to the tower in the skies on the wings of a white plane -- to finally see its brilliance and the surrounding land of Ezo -- but when Sayuri suddenly disappeared from their lives, the promise that once was made was broken. Though time continues to pass, will the three ever meet again some day?

Both of these anime films mix completely undeveloped romantic melodrama with utterly incomprehensible science fiction nonsense; they are also quite splendidly animated and share much of the same aesthetic. The RahXephon film leans much on its mindscrew aspect and is only comprehensible if you have seen the series (if that to be honest); The Place Promised in Our Early Days relies far more heavily on the romantic aspect and as impressive as RahXephon's animation is this even surpasses it. I don't really care for either film but it's just about possible if you enjoyed one for this mix you may also like the other one.
