Casshern assassinated Luna and mixed his blood of death with hers of life, causing the entire world to spin into a cataclysmic state known as the "Ruin." This also caused Casshern to lose his memory which led him to wander the planet known as Casshern, the Man Who Slayed the Sun that was Named Moon.
While wandering the planet, Casshern met several enemies and companions who helped him learn of his past and ways to atone for his sins. Casshern would soon find that Luna was reborn as a goddess of false life, and that Casshern's new purpose was to bring true life to the world by showing them the reality of death.
Casshern was built in a humanoid shape, identical to Dio in features such as their height, weight and structure. He is also completely unaffected by the Ruin, making him look unstained and perfect. He is constantly referred to as "beautiful" due to this. He has a clear appearance that would match that of a human; large fluffy brown hair and soulful blue eyes. He is quite tall with long, muscular limbs all covered by his full body white, skin tight suit. The suit is designed with black lines and a unique "C" on his chest.
The suit also sports a large collar and two jet boosters on the hips. Casshern also has a battle helmet that matches his suit along with earpieces that are similar to his jets. The final pieces of the helmet include the forehead horns that were symmetrical until Dio shattered one of them in battle, and also the helmet's retractable mask.
A cybernetic warrior known as Casshern is responcible for this, because he murdered Luna, the Sun named Moon. A rumor spreads that if Casshern is devoured by a robot, the Ruin will end and the robotic race will once again gain eternal life. A group of large robots known as bandits are set on devouring Casshern in order to fufil their desires of eternal but are easily dispatched by the warrior's incredible strength. Casshern decides to spare his final victim and asks why it is that they are hunting him. The robot responds by telling him that the Ruin decays a robots body until they finnaly succum to their unescapable death, so they must devour Casshern in order to live, because they will die whether he spare them or not. The exclaims that he must try something to avoid the ruin and trys his hand once again at killing Casshern, to no avail he is easily killed.
Casshern is quickly confronted by a humanoid robot who shares little words before dissappears, leaving Casshern alone in a self made graveyard of Robots. It would normally seem that Casshern is a coldhearted killing machine but infact he is a confused soul who has no memory of his past including his actions towards causing the Ruin. He is watched by two other humaniod bots named Ohji and Ringo who decide to keep moving rather then confronting Casshern, showing they have no interest in trying to devour him. Instead they are confronted by a third Robot who comments on how Ohji will have more robots to fix, thanks to the Ruin, then leaves.
Casshern meets Ringo Even someone who has killed the world itself can experience friendship Casshern arrives at a cold spring interested in it as most of the world is without water, he meets a young robot who had already seen him not long before, Ringo. Ring comments he comments that Casshern is beautiful, due to the fact that he is completley unscaved by the Ruin, even mistaking him for a human even though Casshern himself is quite unsure of what he is. Casshern then asks what a human is but Ringo doesn't quite know either though she does know that they are "pretty" like Casshern. Casshern and Ringo spend time together as he learns that Ringo had begun to Ruin but was fixed by Ohji with new parts. Before Ringo departs, Casshern tells her that she is beautiful and not corroded like she thinks, Ringo returns his compliment by giving him a pretty shell for good luck, then leaves.
Casshern Saves Ringo Those who experience the beauty of friendship may never let it go Ringo is attacked by a Bandit who mistakes her for a human, Ringo tells him that she is a robot but is attacked anyway for being a "brat". Before she is crushed, Ringo is saved by Casshern who is then confronted by the bandit about the Ruin. The Bandit states that he doesn't believe in the Rumor but can see how others can due to Casshern's perfectly conditioned body. The Bandit attacks Casshern who easily overpowers him and looses control, killing the bandit even after he begs for mercy. Both Ringo and Casshern are surpised by Casshern's actions, Ringo going as far as to fear Casshern until Ohji arrives and takes her away. Casshern is quickly confronted by the humanoid from before who insults him for being the worst thing to happen to this world, Casshern begs for her to tell Casshern more about himself. The girl tells him that he is the one who killed the Sun called Moon and started the Ruin.
Casshern as lost all regression of these memories and is traveling the world with no aim, no hopes and no solitude. A female humanoid tells Casshern that it is his fault for bringing Ruin apon the world. Casshern pleads for her to tell him about his past but she is so shocked to learn that Casshern does not remember the events she leaves after telling him that his death would serve no purpouse at a point when he didn't understand his own atrocities because it would be "saving" him.
Robots love too In a world where everything dies, even a machine can appreciate love Two robots lay in wait for the Ruin to come for their lives, these robots are named Wrench and Root and they are Robots who wish to accept the human idea of love. Both of them wish for the Ruin to take them, so they can die alongside eachother as lovers in oeace. Overhearing them, several Bandits attack as punishment for acting as if they were indeed humans. They are both saved by Wrench's mechanical canine Friender and Casshern who was simply passing by. Casshern's identity is unknown to them so they oppenly welcome him into their community of robots who believe that accepting death is the best way to live in times of Ruin. Casshern talks with an unnamed Robot called Doctor, he reveals himself to be the leader of the community and teaches Casshern that Robots were once thought eternal but gained a level of humanity when they realised they could die, something that Casshern is unable to relate to and why he does not belong because he has more life in him then all of the community combined. Before leaving Wrench asks Casshern to take care of Friender because he too does not rust or ruin, she also states they are very alike, they are always tense and do not quite understand themselves. Before Casshern decides, Root comes and drags her off to pay their respects to their ruined friend Drew who had just died.
Community turns on Casshern Desperation for eternal life brings those who believed in death to an early demise Later on a Bandit seeking to devour Casshern roams into the community and nearly eats a young robot named Nita until Doctor convinces him that she is not Casshern. After also mistaking Root for Casshern, the Bandit is attacked by the real Casshern who saves Root and admits his identity to the community. Casshern easily destroys the bandit but saves the community in vein as Root followed by many other members change their hearts and switch their ideals to devouring Casshern in order to stop the Ruin. Pushing him into a corner, Casshern is forced into a blind rage which leads him to slaughter every member of the group except Wrench and her dog Friender. Devistated, Wrench states that her desires of dieing with Root may have come true if not for Cassherns revival then she too succums to the Ruin though not my Casshern's hand. Alone once again, Casshern is left to ponder his transgressions.

After settling down Akoz decides to share his view on human benefits and explains how it is important to enjoy the benefit of life rather than brooding of ones sins, suddenly referring to Casshern's depressing attitude. After continuing on their campaign to an unknown destination (even to them), Akoz tells Casshern his opinions on the beauty of the world and why he wanted to go the commune of Robots who accepted the ruin, to see the faces of Robots who were thought to be eternal, who had now accepted death. He also tries one final time to cheer up Casshern's attitude by sharing sins that Akoz himself has committed and how running from your problems is no way to live. Inspired by Akoz words, Casshern decides to confront Friender in an attempt to atone and accept his sins rather then run from them, by giving his life to Friendor. Friendor decides to allow Casshern to live, in his own way forgiving Casshern for causing the death of his owner.

There is a group who looks for Luna for different reasons aswell, Casshern, Lyuze and Friender search for Lyuze for answers, to the past events that have litterally destroyed the world. The two forces cross paths, Cassherna and Lyuze and the two are inspired by the man's will to live. This even gave Lyuze an insight to further understand Casshern who explains that he has someone to protect much like this man (Dune). With that, Lyuze realises this man is infact, The Death God himself Dune. Lyuze explained to Casshern that Dune was Lun'a most powerful guardian with a feared reputation, he was also the one who loved Luna more then anyone else. Bandits interrupt Lyuze's reminesense and try to devour Casshern, openly announcing it allowing Dune to wake up and realize Casshern's identity as the man who killed Luna. Infact, Dune was present during her deatha and swiftly tried to kill Casshern in a blind rage for vengence, only resulting in Dune's discraceful first defeat by Casshern's hand, leaving him incapacitated alongside a lifeless Luna.
Casshern vs Dune Rage is fueled by emotion, emotions driven by memories or the lack of them Unlike Casshern, Dune is enraged by his memories and repeats his past mistake by attacking Casshern in an attempt at vengeance. Though, this time Dune is able to best Casshern in his sanity until Casshern also turns to rage to skillfully retalliate. Lyuze stands by only hoping the two will cease fighting as they seek the same goal. Casshern is able to defeat Dune without going as far as ending his life, even so Dune refuses to forgive Casshern for killing Luna. Before Dune tries once again to attack Casshern in vain, Lyuze tells him that Luna is alive, also stating her own confirmed belief in Luna.This news drives Dune to forget his vendetta and even reveal that he only wishes to be with Luna, and that this far outweighs his hate for Casshern, allowing Dune to move on towards his love, towards Luna.
The roaming existence of Robotic life walks the earth in search of the salvation known as the Sun Name Moon, Luna who can heal all. Death himself, Casshern alonside Lyuze and his Friender search for different reasons in order to seak the truth, after being convinced by Dune's passion from their previous encounter. There are those who still roam the world aimlessly trying to survive with every last breath, though well hidden in their demeanor, Ringo and Ohji fit this description but even people such as them have something to hope and believe in. Meanwhile their are those who believe in something completley different, and also search for Luna for opposite reasons, these are bandits of Dio's army who search to live and conquer the world. Even with this army by his side, Dio believes that he can only become all powerful by defeating Casshern himself. Baby Ringo The beauty of innocence has fuel hope, as a reason to believe Dio's conquest is once again interrupted by the news of an attack on his army, while searching for Luna is serveants were attacked, much to Dio's surpised. Followed by Leda, Dio searches for the assailants as a way to learn more about Luna. During Dio's confusion, Casshern shares the same feelings of distress as he and Lyuze meet with Ohji and Ringo, where he learns of their past where Ohji discovered Ringo crying as a baby as if she was human. Although Casshern is shocked, he is happy to learn of this truth while Dio searches, fueld by rage for his own truth.
Finnaly arriving at his destination, Dio and Leda discover the two assailants are non other then Vulcan and Mars, formerly the strongest Robots in Braiking Boss' empire. They bait Dio into dueling them and nearly take his life until Leda sacrifices her freedom in order to allow them to spare him. She leaves Dio, leaving him alone to remorese his defeat until he is interrupted by the arrival of his former commander, Braiking Boss. The tyrant reminds Dio that his rage is pointless and his obsession with Casshern has made him vulnerable to facing his own kind.
Mars death Newfound believes can fuel the passion to begin a revalation within ones self Braiking Boss finishes by telling the fallen warrior that the reason he is considered weaker then Casshern is because of Casshern's former lack of emotion as a pure killing machine, but now he and the two assailants both have goals, instead of obsessions. Dio is inspired by Braiking Boss' words to prove that he will achieve his ultimate "goal" of defeating Casshern and sets off to reclaim Leda. Dio confronts his opponents once again and with a new passion, uses intelligence to divide the two and defeat them seperatley, killing Mars in the process. He leaves Vulcan alone to greave such as he it to Dio. As he loves to feed on the feeling of the weak, Braiking Boss reappears at Vulcan's side who attacks him after blaming him for abandoning his army, Braiking Boss decides to end Vulcan's suffering and kills him. Dio successfully learns from the error of his ways and gains strength from his true ambitions. Just as Casshern and his group do, once they stumble apon the former home of the Sun..Luna.
Once in the world, there was a hope that Robotic kind could create their own, much like the humans could. But like everything in this world, it was thrashed and decayed by reality, leaving only the bitter memories of it all. But other places, their are still prospering points. Casshern, who has murdered the world, is now thought to be a completely different person by his allies, finally forgiven by whom he's been trying to protect. Still searching for Luna, there are many who find a different path to her, through her origin.
Casshern vs Leda Even the memories of a happier time can torment someone to the point of no return Casshern and his group stumble upon Luna's past, three young Robots who were created by the same scientist who created The Sun, Hoti, Hoto and Holtor. But that scientist died long ago, leaving he and Luna's secrets with the three, who were the failed robots who were to become like Luna, the life of the world. Leda and Dio also find the three after infiltrating Luna's birthplace. Leda looks for a way to escape her fate, haunted by the memories of her past she tries to gain information from the Child who do not yield to her commands. Casshern arrives in time to stop Leda's interrogation, only looking to protect the creators legacy. The children plead, letting them know that the key to eternal life is love and happiness, but Leda's obsession with herself blinds her to their "truth".
Ohji Leaving In this world, the duty of all is to do what they can, to save a life Casshern stops her from extracting any information about Luna, Leda's envious thoughts of Casshern lead her attack again but this time Dio steps in to halt her. The two leave, leaving the triplets to reveal the truth to Casshern and the others, that Ringo has been chosen for Holtor's "True Vision". They give the group a prism containing the Luna's Nanocells, which may be to solution to ending the Ruin. Ohji remains behind to study its powers, while Casshern and Lyuze lead Ringo to the Sun.
There is a warrior that walks the ruined world, with mind, will, passion, sanity and strength still intact. But this warrior has been haunted by the vindictive memories of the fallen, Lyuze the warrior who walks a new path that strays from revenge and strays towards redemption. But these memories of her late sister remind her that the partner she has grown so close to, is still the man who murdered her loved one. Lyuze knows that revenge will solve nothing, but there is still something lurking in her heart, she lived on for many years after the ruin, searching for vengeance but when she is faced with oppurtunity, she cannot take it.
Lyuze can only wonder in the emotions she cannot understand, even asking if she were human, could she understand what she should do. But in the depths of Lyuze's mind, she knows her sins...she knows, she is in love with Casshern. In the last phases of remembering her past, her youth reminds Lyuze that she will never be discouraged. Lyuze is finally able to put her troubled decisions to rest, and bids goodbye to her beloved sister Liza.
The World continues to die ever so slowly, but a cure for the plauge known as the Ruin can be cured, at least thats what Casshern and his group believe. Casshern has developed a deep care for both Ringo and Lyuze, people his actions have effected but then everyone in the world has been effected by Casshern and its only a matter of time before another shows itself. Helene and Castor, maruading warriors attack, showcasing their superior abilities, Helene proves that Casshern's protective attitude towards Lyuze is the only thing that has gotten her this far. But Lyuze is more then capable of proving herself as well as Casshern, able to best and force the two to flee.
Lyuze Ruin Even in a place that symbolizes life, the Ruin is an inescapable reality They continue, protecting each other and Ringo, walking along to find a way to protect everyone from the Ruin. They stumble across a plain of flowers, that make it seem as if the Ruin never existed and this is simply how the world should be, continuing their solem vow to stop the Ruin. But even in a place as beautiful as that, the thoughts of recurring death can never escape the mind. Even someone as strong willed as Lyuze can be near twisted by the haunting thought of death, hurrying to move along when they clearly need rest. This never an has never effected Casshern, he is perfection, immortally and eternally beautiful but without Luna, not even he can protect those he cares about. Lyuze has proven herself time and time again but no matter what, the Ruin will keep coming an she is beggining to loose hope. The threat of Ruin is the eternal suffering of the world the eternal suffering of all but Casshern, nothing he can protect from. But Casshern too shares this suffering, the eternal suffering of watching the world die, with absolutley no way out. So all there is to do, is live on and find Luna, the salvation for everything and use whatever life you have and live it, no matter the cost or situation.
In a dying world, there is a well known ray of hope where anyone and everyone can be saved from death, Luna's Healing Grounds is such a place. It is a rumored field of rejoice where Robots and Humans alike can come to be healed by Luna's touch. Many seek for salvation at the hands of Luna but there is one who wishes to reach this place above all others, Dune. Formerly entrapped and driven to insanity by the memories of an unforgivable past, Dune is able to fuel them into his persistant drive to finnaly reunite with his love.
There are others who seem to mimic Dune's determination and reach Luna, those who wish to return the world to the way it once was. These are non other then Casshern, Lyuze and Ringo who have finnaly arrived to see Luna in order to uncover the truth of her healing. In a place where healing is supposed to be the salvation of the world, It does not appear that Luna has done any healing at all. Casshern and his group are puzzled by the silenced lack of life, until Ringo tells them that Luna heals by using her blood and because of this she can only heal a certain amount of people at a time explaining the absence of presence.
Before continuing to search the rumored land, they are surprised recognize someone who shares their ambition, they are surpised to see that Dune has made it to this land on his own, only drive to life by is indomidable and undying will. Dune appears different man who has escaped brink of insanity, rather seeming to be on the brink of depression, distancing himself from the others on the ground. Even so, Dune has always been known for this behavior, showing that he has returned to his old life. This confirms the groups suspicions, that this place is indeed a healing ground. They depart with Dune in order to seek out Luna, looking for both healing, and answers.
Casshern and Dune An area of salvation and healing, life is to be held close but death should never be forgotten The group is stopped only by the many others who seek Luna's healing, cut off by those who wait the groups must maintain patience until they can meet with Luna. Casshern reuintes with Dune in wait, Casshern is shocked view conflict between Robots, who Dune reveals fight simply because they no longer fear death. Casshern is curious to know if Luna knows that her healing is forcing those around her to forget the fear of death, Dune fends her honor by explaining that people choose to take her healing selfishly so it is not her who is to blame, even so Dune realises this in his own right but refuses to confront it. Before returning to Luna's side he reveals that he has not taken Luna's healing, making the healing grounds slowly become more and more suspicious. The city and even Luna are not what they had originally seemed, only those who present the prescent scent of life are chosen to represent life in eternity while others are rejected because they stink of death and will be outcasted. Luna simply wishes to erase the ideals of death as a whole and only those who she chooses will live forever to represent nothing but life. This truth is only evident to whom Luna holds closest, Dune, the man who once believed that all life meant something to Luna. Despite his suspicion Dune wishes to protect every aspect of Luna, especially her happiness. He destroys the life he once new to be beautiful, the flowers he once held close to his heart are now a conflicting force to him because eventually they die and anything that dies will make Luna unhappy.
Casshern figures out the truth through Dune's actions and fails to understand his loyalty, as Casshern still believes that all life is precious and must be held onto, not just those who have or will forget death. Before Casshern is able to convice Dune, they are interrupted by the arrival of Bandits looking for Luna for their own selfish gain. Even with his decaying body, Dune's undying loyalty leads him to prevent their selfish abuse of Luna's blood at all costs. Dune displays his love for Luna by fighting fearlessly against the army of seekers, but during the battle Dune finnaly realises that Luna is not the one he once loved, she is killing for someone who does not believe in death. Shocked by his realization Dune no longer defends himself, believing their is nothing left to protect leaving himself to be saved by Casshern. Dune's Death Everyone lives for a purpouse in life, even if it is unappealing to others, if someone lives to fufil that purpose then death is a reality that can be embraced Casshern protects the man who feels he no longer has something to protect, Casshern was indeed correct in believing that all life is precious, Dune also knew this but refused to accept it. Lyuze believes that Dune can still be healed by Luna, she is oblivious to the fact that Luna only heals those who do not fear death. But Dune still realizes the thick reality of death and apon Luna's arrival to the scene she picks up on this and refuses to heal Dune. Even though Duna gave up his entire life for her, Luna's overbearing hate for death leads her to abandon Dune. Dune accepts the reality that Luna is not who she once was, she is now someone who heals for her own desires and no one elses, although of course...he knew this all along. Casshern and Lyuze are highly upsettened by the news, but Dune finnaly chooses to accept the Sun for who it is, he peacfully passes on, having served his self made purpouse in a life he has to the fullest, all along...that is all he's ever wanted.
The Sun is not what all think it to be, the salvation given to those who ask for it is not richeous or impartial. Luna the Sun beleives that death should be erased from the earth and those who believe that it exists should be aloud to Ruin. Death himself doesn't even agree with Luna's thinking and even those who travled with him to find Salvation, refuse The Sun's twistedness. Even so, thousands search for Luna, including two robotic prodigies and their empire of bandits. Leda and Dio search for Casshern in Luna to answer their desires. Leaving Luna The Salvation offered by the Sun is one that upsets the tender balance of a world set in Ruin Casshern and his group leave the false paradise until Ringo's condition worsens to where they must travel into a place where those who have been freed from the Ruin go. Even though Casshern and his group despise the Ruin and wish to continue on living, they also despise this place, aswell as the way Luna uses her healing. Even so, they question their resolve to pass on, like Dune has shown. But without that resolve, those who desire to live may not be able to stay the same way they were after being "healed". Just before the group returns to meet Luna, Ohji returns from his study to tell Casshern and Lyuze about Luna's past.
In the past The Sun granted salvation to those with eternal life, by destroying them with her healing. Humans and Robots used to find protection under her healing by freeing them of their never ending lifespan, the original Luna believed that true life could only be experienced through death. The New Sun and the Luna of Old are truely different beings, or the same with different meanings. Although Luna can grant life, Casshern tells Ohji that Luna's healing is wrong and unnatural. Survival may no longer seem nesscerry but Casshern is once again pushed to the edge when Dio's army surpirsingly arrives to find Luna. Casshern Defeated 2 One can only begin to imagine the pain of someone who cannot die in a world of nothing but death Casshern learns for the first time that he should not talk for everyone, is the only one with the luxory of immortality. In order to show that he can compare he allows himself to be brutally beaten by the army, and even captured by Dio.
Death is slowly dissappearing from a world that is already dead, with a Sun that never sets and a hero who may never rise again. There are those who realize this, those who are oblivious to it and those who choose to ignore it for their own means. Leda wishes to control this world by forcing all to envy her beauty as she wishes to be the one to grant it to them, rather then Luna. Dio although only wishes to fufil his only desire of defeating Casshern who cannot even bring himself back to the world he destroyed. Leda makes her move and succesfully perswades the unnatural sun to only grant healing to her chosen few and finnaly accepts eternal life apon herself. Casshern in pain Can Death itself truely be the key to all the worlds true desires Even in this paradise of life, where the Ruin seems to be anything but a reality, it consumes the world even more as more robots seek for Luna's salvation unknowing of her true nature. Braiking Boss searches for Luna bringing many who seek for their life, finnaly accepting her as the worlds Sun. As the world accepts Life as their new reality, Dio refuses to accept anything but his desire for defeating Casshern which begins to stand in the way of Leda's renewed hopes of becoming Gods and creating life. But Dio's desire is not the only thing that stands in her way, as her new body seems to be even more effected by the Ruin after The Sun's blessing. Luna infact granted Leda's eternal life but in return her Beauty was stripped from her and her absolute perfection taken nullifying Leda's chances for true happiness in life. Foolishly Leda takes more of the Sun's salvation selfishly while the selfless Casshern whiters in pain only to be rediculed by his rival Dio. Casshern against Dio The feeling behind all your drive and passion cannot be replicated by the false reality of eternal life Casshern and Leda reach the surface of their reality, Casshern must fight against Dio's desires, as he is his responcibility that he twisted Dio through his Sins. Leda's selfish actions have caused her to be completley stripped of her beauty with the granted reality of eternal life, her happiness taken from her so long as death is eliminated from the planet. After a long wait, a time that Dio could have expanded into forever in order to fufil his desires, Casshern returns to his top shape and is ready to finnaly face him. Dio has been able to survive his own mortality through his single obsession and can now find joy, the one feeling he can never replicate by living forever, in defeating Casshern.
The World has accepted the unnatural sun as their unholy saviour, and all who haven't have perished in more ways then one. All believe that eternal life is the key to the end of their suffering, all but Dio who only has one desire that living forever could never fufil, defeating Casshern. He is finnaly getting his wish, he battles Casshern who seeks for his own reason to fight. Dio's entire being is for violence, he has strived for the chance to defeat Casshern, but in that very moment Casshern is no different.
Dio defeats Casshern No one can truely live in The Sun's light, life is only truely beautiful when one can reach its peak and then end in peace While desires are being fufilled on the battlefield, in the so called land of Salvation, hopes and dreams are crushed by eternal life. Leda's hopes of every being beautiful have been slaughtered by Luna's blessing, giving her a hideos appearance. Tossed out with the trash by Luna, Leda's only company is Ringo who may be the only one left who still believes in Leda's bueaty. This spark of hope leads Leda to return to her desires, to return to Luna. Hopes otherwise are fufilled as Dio's duel heats up, getting the better of Casshern Dio's feelings of completion reach their peak. Casshern cannot match Dio's desire, they have always been one in the same until Casshern became one step above that, but now everything has changed and Dio is truely the strongest.
Leda knows the reality of death, she knows that her desires can never be fufilled through eternal life and because of that The Sun is only willing to grant the once true salvation, death. Luna impales Leda to death feeling that death and decay are truely ugly in this world, even though Leda only wanted a new life. Death returns before the Sun can grant full death apon Leda but not before experiencing his one true defeat, at the hands of Dio. Before his death, Dio was able to live his life to its fullest, he was able to defeat Casshern so his fate was one that no longer mattered to him, and so the Ruin claimed it as it always does. Able to feel a great happiness in herself, Leda leaves knowing that her love was able to die peacefully so that she can now do the same. Casshern leaves Luna Death is truely the only one who can realize what true life if, but ironically it can never experience it Luna tries one final time to convince Casshern, that he can become the King of Luna's Legion and grant salvation apon the world, to finnaly atone for all the sins he's commited. Casshern refuses, believing that everyone who flocks to Luna is drinking from her overflowing life. Normally their would be nothing wrong with this, but Casshern knows the truth, all this time Casshern has met many robots and humans overflowing with a fire in their hearts, torches burning with true life. A life that burns out is one that is truely beautiful, something Casshern can never experience, because he cannot die, he can never truely live. He cannot find any meaning an all the violence in the world, he cannot find anything in himself or Luna either. The day that Casshern came to kill the sun, because he murdered Luna she was freed from Death and it was released througout the world and into Casshern. Though Luna is evil, he will not take her from the world, people still flock to her for hope and Casshern never wants to take life from anyone, ever again.
Years ago, the sun who granted true salvation was killed and now she's afforded a life that eternity could never match. The world now looks to Luna to grant them false life without the reality of death but there are some who know the truth, the reality of real life. And those are the very people who live peaceful among themselves, finally content with the world as is. Casshern, Lyuze, Ringo and Ohji can now live in peace, knowing their lives are truly beautiful, but at a cost: what makes their lives beatiful is what causes them to whither away. Despite his life's being at its end, Ohji has realized that Ringo is truly happy, nearly forgotten the ruin exists, Ohji feels that he has done all he can in this world and can pass on from its evils in peace. Ohji's life was based around Ringo and because she was happy, so was he and with that he could die with a smile. Ohji's Death Death is a reality that people should not be able to choose, but embrace in peace as their lives have already been lived to its fullest Outside such a peaceful place, Luna still decieves her takers with false blessings, being protected by her new guardian, Braiking Boss. Wishing the Ruin to be gone and death erased from the world, soon eternal life will reign anew. But the Ruin still exists and its next victim is Casshern's closest friend. Lyuze has survived for so long, believing in nothing but vengeance but upon that day, and all the days since they left Luna she has been able to be truly happy because she knows death as if it was absolutley natural. With that Lyuze has already live her life to the fullest and can die peacefully in Casshern's arms.
Just as Lyuze and Ohji did, everyone deserves to know death so there lives can be beautifully natural, and this may be the only true way to atone of Casshern's sins. He must let all know that death exists, he can no longer sit idoly by for the Sun to blind the world to its own true beauty. Casshern is coming, but not under anyone's orders and not for violence blinded by his rage, he has found something to fight for, the truth of life and something he can not experience but can share with the world in order to atone for what he's done. But he is alone against an army of those under Luna's ruse, but in this moment Casshern knows why he exists he knows who is he and like Dio knows he is the strongest and can win.
Braiking Boss Death The man who made the monster known has death, defeated by his creation..even he can die knowing that he has done his time and can accept a graceful end Casshern fights on until there is only one in his way, the man made him the monster he was and the man who plans to stop who he is, Braiking Boss. Too late to realize his wrong doings, his responcibility to those already tricked by Luna trumpts all allowing him to fight what he believes in. This passion allows him to get the best of Casshern, but no matter what Casshern knows that he cannot loose, no matter what. Casshern fights on and even in a moment where justice seems to weigh on the side of the Emperor, death triumpts. Braiking Boss is able to admit in his final moments that Luna needs to be stopped and the worlds eyes opened to death, Casshern continues to end things once and for all.
The Face of Death Life can only be realized after one has accepted death, and if they ever forget it..it will return to remind them In her own mind, Luna believes that death is ugly and that she can grant the world beautiful life. But she has become a tyrant that has tried to take the world for her own with the lie of happiness under the false hope of eternal life. Someone like this can never stand in the way of death, just as Casshern failed all those years ago. The blood of life and death were mixed together on that day, and the world flipped apon itself and changed into the Ruin. Even though Luna is the opposite of who she once was, even though she has challenged death and transformed the world with false dreams, Casshern will not deny the people of the world what they desire, he will not kill Luna. However if Luna, or anyone ever forgets the face of death, Casshern will return to remind them of beautiful life. Casshern was never seen again, he is the face of death, embrowing it into all who will never know what it means to die. Ringo becomes a young woman and the first know live in a world where death is not an option, but a reality, that the world must always face in the future.
Personality Casshern was originally a merciless being without any sense of reason or morality. When he murdered Luna he quite literally passed this trait onto the world, murdering it and making it a world with no morals or reason. After his rebirth, Casshern became a calm, naive boy who had to learn about his past from enemies and allies alike. As he learned he was constantly ridiculed for who he once was, forcing Casshern into a depression.
Despite his darkness, Casshern still wished to atone for what he had once done and looked for people throughout the world who he had not completely destroyed. These people helped Casshern realize what the world once was and allowed him to strive to stop the Ruin due to their inspiration. Although Casshern had the will to do good, it was still in his nature to be a ruthless tyrant, and this rage would both keep Casshern from sacrificing himself and force him to murder and defend himself.
But when others such as Dio and Braiking Boss remind Casshern of who he was from their perspective, it commonly causes him to become suicidal due to the mental trauma of the surprising realization of his past.Although this suicide was only to help the world, Casshern found another way to do so by seeking out Luna.
By finding Luna, Casshern finally realized who he was; Death. Casshern remember everything he did was right he sacrificed his pride and whatever future he had to become the world's death so that everyone could truly live. This proved that Casshern really was a selfless man who had come from an astonishing change. He was glad that he was a hero who save the world from death.
