    I've never seen Eureka Seven (gasp!) but this show looks gorgeous! You can always count on BONES for some quality animation. Anyway, is it alright for me to watch this show without having seen the prequel?

    BONES really are the best at what they do.

    Short answer: Yeah, you should be fine.

    Long Answer:
    From what I've seen thus far I don't believe the two shows are directly related in terms of plot or even narrative universe. Eureka Seven AO seems to take place on an alternate version of Earth as opposed to the original Eureka Seven which took place in an entirely fictional world. So despite the fact that Eureka Seven AO is technical a sequel the actual plot lines seem to be entirely independent of one another.

    There seem to be some carryover characters, like Eureka(Ao's mother) and Nirvash(the mech), but both seem to be different than their Eureka Seven counterparts. So I suspect whether or not you've seen Eureka Seven won't matter in the slightest; and if you decide to watch Eureka Seven later on I don't think AO will spoil anything for you.

    OK then, I'll give this show a shot! Though one day I'd like to watch the original (seeing as I've heard how great it is and all).

    The original is really worthwhile to watch, so put it on the to watch list.^^

    Nice episode, but was this choice of color intentional?! Fuck them, if it is. They mentioned China, USA and Japan, use one of these flags at least.


    edit: Jammin: Do I have to remind you of germany's past? Colors are off[black-white-red for either Reich], I may be overreacting, but seems too intentional to me, especially with phrases like: "Alien! Foreigner! Get lost!".

    I can't believe you even noticed that. They just picked 3 common vandalism spray paint colors. I don't think there is any way that is a flag reference.

    I mean, it wouldn't even really make sense. What would the message be "Germany <3 vandalism"? That seems like a pretty weak cultural insult. .

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Anyhow, I'm curious to see how the transition from the island is going to go.

    Clearly he's heading out to defend the his home, even if some of the villagers are none to pleased with him. And it seems like things are set up for him to go off with the Pied Piper group after that. But where are Naru and those smugglers going to fit in? Are they going to come along, or run in parallel stories?

    Re: Eureka Seven AO

    I'm enjoying it being a HUGE E7 anime fan I do wish they tied in the first one more but I understand they're two entirely different things at this point 5 episodes in with no sign about the first E7 having any tie in's to the current one which is my only complaint. (Seriously how can Eureka be Ao's Mother but only have that as the only tie in, I'm sure there may be more down the road or so I hope but I'm just glad nonetheless they're doing another E7 anime though Renton/Eureka's relationship growth is what made the first anime so special)



    But I've also read the first few chapters of the manga and they seem different. I know the manga for the first E7 was based off of the anime but in this case which story is actually correct because they're already slightly different.

    They are probably entirely different. This Earth is pretty clearly an entirely different planet from the one all of the previous Eureka Seven series was on.

    As for this anime's relationship to the manga, I suspect they are probably different stories as well.

    I'm starting to get caught up now. At around episode 12 it seems like the story begins, which is just terrible pacing but...it is what it is.

    I feel like Eureka Seven AO's story is an overall fail but it does have enough to keep me watching for now...

    Spoiler: Specifically.. show


    The real problem now even more than the pacing though is the complete collapse of the characterizations of Ao and Naru. Their actions and reactions range from melodramatic to absurd. In it's attempts to be emotional and mysterious all sense of relatability has been lost. The other characters have not fared much better either. Hopefully Ao can come around but Naru is pretty much a lost cause.

    This turn out to be one of the best anime I watched in last few years. The story became so interesting and I liked how lose ends were connected. Great characters and BGM is awesome. But why do we have to wait for few weeks for the last two episodes ...its unfair .
