All Good Things… Eureka Seven Astral Ocean 23 and 24 END

Eureka Seven AO Nirvash and Nirvash Neo
After what seemed like an eternity, this week brought us the conclusion the Eureka Seven Astral Ocean. This sequel, which in being set in the past felt like a prequel, was not without it’s faults. Most of us that were Eureka Seven fans came in with high expectations. And rightly so. Eureka Seven was, over the course of 50 episodes, a balanced and beautiful show. Growth and conflict, aliens and mecha, love and loss, a hero rescuing the damsel; this show had it all.

AO was a chance to continue this legacy. A chance to invigorate the fan base once again, and bring a new audience into the fold. And with it’s first four episodes, it did that. Sure, it left us with some questions, and made us wonder what was going on. But the potential was there. But as we worked our way through the series, more things were, seemingly randomly, thrown our way. And all we could think was, “Bones won’t do that to us”. And with this last hiatus, my thoughts were, “here is a chance for Bones to finish this the right way”.

Quite frankly, it sucks to be disappointed this way.

Forgotten Truths-Eureka seveN AO Episode 19

Eureka Seven AO Secret Head

[Eureka seveN AO Episode 18]

Yes, I know I’m a week late. Between family and work, life has gotten busy this Fall. But honestly, that’s no excuse. I guess the reason I’m really late is an indication of my growing frustration with this show. And this week’s episode, with it’s shotgun approach to unraveling mysteries and creating new ones, was almost a letdown. It was utterly anticlimactic.  And why do I think that?

Eureka Seven AO Elena Peoples Smile

[Keep Hating Me (But I’ll Protect You Anyway) – Eureka 7 AO Episode 3]

So the opening arc comes to an end. You know I like my four episode opening structures. While this one isn’t as in your face as most shows, it does introduces us to a large scope of the world in which the show takes place. Through these last four episodes, we have encountered a range of people and politics, that at some point, will play into our protagonists decisions. And on that note, let’s look into what this week has brought us.
