* AgeGapRomance: After a certain point, it ''seems'' like this for [[spoiler: Ayato and Haruka]], who are 17 and 29 respectively. Turns out to be ''much'' more complicated. [[spoiler:They were originally of the same age and met when both were 13 years old. Haruka aged much more than Ayato in the outside world due to Tokyo Jupiter's time dilation effect.]]



* MayDecemberRomance: After a certain point, it ''seems'' like this for [[spoiler: Ayato and Haruka]]. Turns out to be ''much'' more complicated.

Inspired by the 1970s mecha show ''Anime/{{Raideen}}'' and heavily influenced by [[http://www.wattpad.com/121643 science fiction literature]] (''Literature/TheDandelionGirl''), most Western audiences will compare it to ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. Where ''Evangelion'' is about dysfunction and despair cloaked in Kaballah and Judeo-Christian imagery, ''[=RahXephon=]'' is about transcendence and revelation; blending music, gorgeous imagery and Mayan lore to produce a result that is thematically the total opposite of ''Evangelion'''s bleakness. Despite the two series having plot points which are [[FollowTheLeader suspiciously similar]], ''[=RahXephon=]'' stands in its own right as a SuperRobot series. Also when the two of them are in the same game, expect the game to have them some sort of link. It's by watching Raideen using his God Voice attack that Ayato unlocks RahXephon's Voice attack.
