Posted on 26 August 2012 with categories: Eureka Seven Ao

So, this series definitely has this tendency to come with back-stories right from out of nowhere. This episode treated us to the identity of the father of Truth. On top of the nature of the world that the series takes place in: we’re dealing with a parallel universe. Basically this show is what would happen if earth would be invaded by the Scab Coral: it would still thrive, but not as much as we do now. So wait, are the villains in this series trying to move the plot into the current earth?

What’s interesting is how Goldilocks isn’t dead, but instead they never got enlisted. And you know what? I wonder what happened to Bruno in this timeline then: is he still working for Generation Blue, but in a different division or something? Will we actually see him again? What’s also interesting is how Ao nearly loses himself near the end of this episode, leading to quite an interesting cliff-hanger where people actually realize that he is too dangerous with that dimension-altering gun of his. Is that really going to be it, though, or did this episode fail to mention something?

And then there are the characters in this episode who just started to act weird. Elena Peoples… didn’t she try to shoot down the Nirvash a bunch of episodes ago? This episode she apparently decided to try a completely different tactic, but what she has in mind still is a complete mystery. The trio of Gazelle, Pippo and Juno also were different from usual. Juno was in his element when he started explaining things, so that one is logical, but what about Gazelle being so blunt? And has Pippo always been this stupid? The most notable change however was Georg, who sometimes got taken over by a new voice. That one definitely is a plot point that the next episodes will touch upon.

    Oh come on, we already learned in Ep 12 that Truth was adopted by Johannson. And Georg’s alternate Voice is the japanese Secret he was connected with by Gazelles Group in Ep 15.

      THIS! I cant believe people missed this! everyone’s all like “gee I wonder why georgs voice is different” -.-

    psgels, are you watching this without subs? That would explain how you could miss so much ^^;;
    I found this episode awesome. (but a world without nuclear plants and overpopulation doesn’t sound that bad!)

    Elena seems to have a decent idea whats going on, when she tried to stop Eureka from going away aka try to shoot down the Nirvash.

    Recap episode..

  5. UltimateReaper says:

    You seem kinda off today, it does seem like you’ve missed a lot of stuff.

    Aside from that, this ep was rather bland for me. Lots of build up and explaining. Only thing I don’t get is the gun itself. We are basically dealing with time travel/changing here. Ao didn’t belong in the past to begin with, but so far we don’t know if this is the kind of story that has the,

    “He was in the past before Eureka was born to begin with” you know the whole time paradox thing
    or
    “His going back into the past changed things.” Chronologically speaking, he didn’t go back into the past until after Eureka was born

    I don’t really know, but I hope we get the answers. I’m a bit confused on a few things. Elena is a total pyscho, I’m beginning to wonder who the hell she really is.

  6. mousoukyoku says:

    Not that Steins;Gate was terribly original in essence, but AO still managed to copy its basic premise. Way to go! Well, still diggin’ this though.

  7. Commenter says:

    As was already mentioned: perhaps you should rewatch some prior episodes psgels! These “contrived” plot points are everything but contrived. The relation between truth and johannson was already figured out by that japanese military man, and Georg’s additional voice is that of that head of a secret that is in Japan.

    I think this story adresses one of the plot points in the original: that the scub coral does not have the flow of time in its own world. So the scub coral is connected to the past and the future timelines of Eureka seven Ao and the original Eureka seven.

  8. AidanAK47 says:

    Give him a break guys, Eureka seven had a two week break so it’s no wonder it’s difficult to recall what happened in the previous 15 episodes. Hell it’s difficult to recall what happened in the previous episode for that matter what with the boring bullshit politics and dull characters.
    Even then there is still the massive plot hole of how the secrets clearly blew the crap out of humans and didn’t give a damn about quartz before but now that a giant head says they are protectors then everyone just believes them?

    Also even if the Goldilocks team didn’t get enlisted that wouldn’t mean that the team wouldn’t exist. It would just be different pilots in the Goldilocks team.

    @Emma: The English dub seems more grounded but suffers from that old overacting problem that plagued the early dub industry.

Mushishi – 07

Now this was such a beautiful episode. We often see Mushi portrayed as parasites. In fact, they are pretty much based on the insects and viruses of their world. There probably are enough real viruses and insects living in the Mushishi world, but they just aren’t the focus of the series. Anyway, what they did […]

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – Stardust Crusaders – 06 & 07

This is where this arc gets weird. We’re still in adventure modus, however in these two episodes Jotaro not only meets some of the most bizarre Stand users, it’s also done in the most camp way possible. You can see a clear difference with the first two seasons of Jojo: there it was all about […]

Episodes 05 and 06 are dedicated to character-development. It’s here where Ping Pong shows that it also knows its stuff in terms of storytelling; the develoment doesn’t start too early or too late, and these two episodes really added depth to all of the different characters, despite that there were no big matches. I’m currently […]

I have not forgotten about this show. Not at all. I just finished marathoning these four episodes, and holy cheeseballs on a stick! this is the best anime in years! This was everything I could have hoped for and blows just about everything else out of the water. Talk about raw, powerful storytelling. I now […]

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – 03 – 05

Jojo really is not kind to its females. Every time a hint is even dropped to a girl kicking ass here, it comes with this weird plot-twist that undermines any fighting potential of them. In this arc, it’s the rule that says that your stand will kill you if youaren’t strong enough. And so, Joseph’s […]

Ping Pong – 03 & 04

The opening of Ping Pong wasn’t done in time, so the first two episodes showed a sortof montage as a placeholder. Now we know why, with episode 03 and 04. The creators actually got the single best animator currently in the business to oversee it: Shinya Ohira. This guy understands animation like no other. The […]

Ping Pong – 02

Yes, I know that more people here were involved in making this series beyond Masaaki Yuasa. It’s written by the creator of Tekkon Kinkreet, Taiyo Mashimoto. That guy is awesome. And the combination between those two makes this series even better. Because here’s the thing: anime is significantly different from manga or light novels. Beyond […]

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – Stardust Crusaders – 02

We can never quite get rid of magic fights at a school, now can we, Jojo. Ah well, I forgive it this time, just due to how hilarious it looks seeing these ridiculously bulky men walk around pretending to be high school students. It’s just so over the top, and yet Jojo sets itself apart […]

Mushishi Season 2 – 02

Oh yes. This is it. This is what storytelling should be about: telling real stories about real people, all with their own problems that need to be overcome. And this show does that time and time again in just one episode. I still can’t believe how authentic this series is. The thing is, when I […]

Nerawareta Gakuen Review – 84/100

Let me talk a bit about Ryousuke Nakamura. For a long time, this guy was my hero. He started off as an assistant director to Monster, in my opinion a big reason why that series got such a ridiculously solid adaptation, and then in 2008 he came with the groundbreaking Mouryou no Hako. No TV-series […]

Kick Heart

Okay, so I didn’t want to exit 2013 without having seen Masaaki Yuasa’s Kick Heart. It’s only twelve minutes anyway, and I consider him to be one of the best anime directors out there. The story here is pretty silly and mostly serves as a backdrop, so I mostly want to talk about the nature […]

Everyone’s taste is different, and that’s a wonderful thing because that allows us to have so many different forms of media that all aim toward their own niche.

Normally I try to avoid spoilers with these reviews, but screw it, it’s Pokemon. Pokemon The Origin is a bomb of nostalgia.

I’m not going to dedicate a post for my impression for the final three episodes of this series. It was just too boring to write much about.

Silver Spoon Review – 86/100

When Noitamina started airing two series per season, it was amazing. It’s a timeslot that on average tends to be aimed at a much older audience than usual, and having two series with the same mentality definitely helped to bring more diversity to anime overall. Unfortunately it’s a schedule that could not be kept up […]

Reviewing a comedy sequel usually is quite simple: in most cases it just drops the bomb and runs out of inspiration, and in rare cases it actually manages to stay hilarious. The tricky thing with these kinds of series is that you need to remain funny, and you need to have the inspiration for that. […]
