RahXephon is NOT a crossover between the two series Rah and Ephon like I originally thought, it's actually some kid-pilots-a-giant-robot-that-only-he-can-pilot type show. In the year 2015, the Mu, huge, tremendously powerful, alien race, appear in Tokyo for the second time. The only hope for Mankind's survival lies in the RahXephon, a humanoid fighting machine discovered by TERRA, a special United Nations agency. Capable of withstanding anything the Mu can dish out, the RahXephon's one drawback lies in the limited number of people able to pilot it. Only Ayato Kamina, whose mother heads the Mu race, can pilot the robot. Thrust into a maelstrom of battle and events that he does not understand, Ayato is forced to plumb the depths of his own inner resources for the courage and strength to not only fight, but to survive, or risk losing everything. (But of course he has a moment or two to down a refreshing lemon drink.)
