The Eureka Seven AO Ending We’ve All Been Waiting For

Eureka Seven AO Main Cast

[UPDATE: This is just a preview, you can find my thoughts on the finale here]

The fated time has arrived. At long last, the conclusion to Eureka Seven AO is set to air this coming week. The three weeks off for the Olympics forced a two month delay to end this series. And after leaving on a cliff hanger, we’ve had been left to wonder just what Bones has in store for us. What will the conclusion bring? Will the timeline be set right? Will Renton rescue both Eureka and Ao? But before we get to that, lets recap what we’ve seen so far.

New Alliances-Eureka seveN AO Episode 21

Eureka Seven AO Masked Elena

[Eureka seveN AO Episode 20]

Loyalty and Allegiance seem to be a very fluid concept in this show. In a short span, we have both Ao and Elena defecting to the other side. We have Big Blue World dropping Generation Bleu and declaring them rogue. And the remaining members of Team Harlequin joining up against Pied Piper. To me, it’s all contradictory to the guiding principles of the original series.

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?

Ripples in the Pond–Eureka seveN AO Episode 17

Eureka Seven AO Elena Fleur Manga Photo Shoot

[Eureka seveN AO Episode 16]

With every action, there is an equal, and opposite reaction. One of the fundamental laws of physics, it defines that no action happens without affecting something else. And is Ao finds out, his Scub Coral bazooka (or Quartz Gun as Gen Bleu calls it) not only destroys Secrets, but reaches through time to affect past events. With the inclusion of just this one element, this show has gone from being a sort of battle between Scub, Secret, and Human, to that of how can Ao restore the timeline. Wonderful.

When Secret’s Tell Truths-Eureka seveN AO Episode 15

Eureka Seven AO Main Cast

[Eureka seveN AO Episode 14]

If there is anything Astral Ocean does better than It’s predecessor, is that it keeps the story moving. For the last month, the quick pace has brought us into the thick of the story without so much as a pause. And as we move from one revelation to the next, it’s now the Secret’s turn to begin revealing their story. What truth’s will Eureka seveN show us this week?

Just Who Are You? – Eureka Seven AO Episode 11

Eureka Seven AO Eleana as Miller

[Eureka seveN AO Episode 10]

[Full disclosure: I’m listening to the Eureka seveN AO Soundtrack as I write this post. Definitely a fantastic mix of styles and sounds]

Elena has been one of my favorite characters from the start. From singing karaoke, to a cat themed school bathing suit, her random quirkiness adds a spark to the Pied Piper team. But who is she? As we speculated early on, is there some sort of relationship between her and Miller? Are they really the same person? I’m glad we’re done for now with building the world, and starting to understand it’s players more. Oh, the things this episode shows us.

Who’s the Pied Piper? – Eureka Seven AO Episode 10

Eureka Seven AO Nirvash Ivica

[Eureka Seven AO Episode 9]

A big thanks to Ghostlightning for filling in last week. And after a week’s hiatus, AO is back.  And Pied Piper of Generation Bleu is on the offensive against another Secret in the American Southwest. And as a breath of fresh air, we start to get some back story on the leaders of Pied Piper Ivica and Rebecca. And while Ao goes through a bout of schizophrenic heroism, we learn  some of the details behind Ivica Tanović, and what motivates him. And as he leads the crew of the Triton, as it’s captain and father figure, is it really him that plays the flute of Pied Piper?

I’ll Show You(But You Knew I’d Do That)-Eureka seveN AO Episode 8

Eureka Seven AO Fleur AO Walking Proudly

[Eureka seveN AO Episode 7]

Truth has left, and life at Generation Bleu is returning to normal. Much to the frustration of Ao, they wont be chasing after him to find Naru, and figure out what Truth really is. Thankfully this week, the writing and directing decided to keep th focus narrow. And interestingly enough, we get to see just how our young pilots family’s, and especially their fathers, play into who they are and why they do what they do.
