Xenosaga: The Animation is a twelve-episode anime series developed by Toei Animation which premiered on TV Asahi in Japan on January 5, 2005. The anime is based off the events of Xenosaga Episode I - Der Wille zur Macht, although there are differences.

Differences[edit]

  • Miyuki Itsumi is completely omitted, her role being filled in by Togashi Yukihira.
  • Virgil survives the events on the Woglinde, with Andrew Cherenkov taking his place, being killed by a Gnosis.
  • The entire Kirschwasser race is absent, their roles replaced by a single Kirschwasser, Kirsch.
  • Albedo appears on the Woglinde to retrieve Kirsch by threatening Shion's life if she doesn't comply, something that doesn't happen in the game.
  • Pellegri has a more expanded role than she did in the game, even her E.S. unit, Issachar makes an appearance despite debuting in Episode II.
  • Virgil is among those arrested by the Federation after the Kukai Foundation was framed by the U-TIC Organization.
  • The "Ma Belle Peche" scene is altered drastically, instead of Albedo dismembering himself to frighten MOMO, he abuses Kirsch and uses a gun to frighten MOMO and shoots his head off which quickly regenerates, replacing the knife he wields in the Japanese release of the original game.
  • The Song of Nephilim section and the Proto Merkabah section are merged.
  • Sophie Peithos is replaced by a transformed Simeon.
  • Canaan makes an appearance despite debuting in Episode II.
  • Kirsch takes KOS-MOS's place in detaching Proto Merkabah's sub-compartments and dies with it.
