I think they've done a fine job with AO; sure its not as good as the original thus far, but for a sequel not starring the original cast as the mains, this is pretty damn good (they've even thrown in a few references to the first series all over the place. Good move!)

Episode 3 was fine; nothing big since it was a set-up for the next episode and everything. I LOVE the artwork by Yoshida of Eureka and baby Ao in the picture. Yoshida, just... c'mere and let me love you, you artistic wonder.
I also like the addition of Eureka near the moon in the OP (as well as the necessary hair color change for Ao in the OP and ED).

Also, not entirely AO-related, but did anyone catch Hadena Fansub's subbed version of episode 51? (The famed alternate ending to E7 that was never aired, but had dialogue written out and performed by the seiyuus in 2006 at a Sony Music Festival)? BONES recently put it out on Japanese televisions a few weeks ago and Hadena graciously subbed it.

FINALLY! THERE YOU ARE, MY LOVE!

Okay, I'm totally for the theory that this is an alternate universe because of Eureka's DYNAMIC ENTRY. I mean, why drop from the sky in the first place? Renton must then still be in the other universe.

Eureka w/ black hair? :? ... :mrgreen: a'ight. Thought she was Talho at first, but thats what you get when you have the same facial structure. I wonder if Eureka went back to the other side...

I wanna see pink laser next episode

Apparently she got taken by the US military though. No idea if she got back (or if she went away with the Scub Burst. In the manga it was like that, but the anime only briefly mentioned the Burst), but somehow they got her and Ao's bracelet ('cause Gazelle was trying to bring that to the Japanese military or somesuch in the briefcase in episode 1).

And Fleur answers to a small girl who's mother had been crushed by debris by running out to get her Allelujah to help move the blocks.
HM. Now I wonder why I like Fleur so much...

No but really both are cool; I think Elena's otaku obsession is amusing as anything and Fleur's admirable (not to mention, lol, 'I'LL UPDATE MY BLOG WHERE I WANT!" xD)

Aww. Watched this, I thought it'd be... kinda... significantly different? Still cool that they aired that.

Episode 4 was aight. I really liked the addition to the OP of Eureka turning her head and revealing the jewel on her forehead. :'3 I think the best part of the episode was Noah though.
Also my friend pointed this out to me, which I'm not sure how to react over.

Spoiler :

Its in the shape of the Gekko State logo, except there's a big 'GS' in the middle. Which could stand for 'Gekko State'. Godamnit BONES stop trolling us and tell me if this is an AU or not, kjhgidbd.
My friend also thought this looked a lot like Talho.

Also,

ohmyGod the Three Stooges are stowaways. XD I laughed SO hard at the end with Gazelle, Pippo and Han. xD

Wow that logo! OMFG. AND WHAT IS GOING ON. Trapar mining? Was the original show this bad at being all like "stuff is going on and we're gonna make it really obvious and wave it in your face but we're purposefully not telling you any details haha" or do I just care more now?

I noticed the OP change. (came here to post about it) I really like stuff like that, but I'm TRYING not to nerd out and over analyze things. So hard to do, but I'ma try to sit back and enjoy.

Oh, nice snag! Hm... well to be honest I don't think there's other half human half Coralian babies because Eureka was the only humanoid Coralian left that the Scubs made before. If Ao is Eurenton's son, it doesn't really make sense that there would be more.
I think I watched that thinking they meant like orphaned children, maybe who could pilot IFOs really well. Who knows!

Episode 5: Generation Moe.

Didn't love episode 5 a whole lot. I only really liked Gazelle's/Pippo's/Han's moments and Noah's moments.

Also I don't mind Team Goldilocks; I think the little girl's cute, and I'm in love with Maggie's hairstyle. Also Bruno's a big ol' Teddy Bear.

But yeah, besides that, boring.

I actually really liked it. Most original-E7-character-driven episode yet. I wanna know more about the world.

Elena Just keeps giving me more reasons to love her!

As for relevant-to-story commentary:

I liked the tour of the HQ, but I have no idea where anything is or where the hell they went. Are they now underground? Are they in a dome? Where is ANYTHING in in here? The episode was going good until they cut the tour short. I think he needs more of an intro to their world. But I like how they compensated with the ambush at the end. "Reality of war" and everything. Though I'll admit it was a little "boring", the pacing of the original E7 wasn't all that fast either. I'm just wondering how this plot is going to match up with the epic-ness of the original. I like how this show has so many different nationalities and not just all-Japanese. It really keeps that diverse Gekko State feel.

I think Maggie is the new Maeter.

I really thought Gazelle n friends were gonna get caught and be forced to be janitors or something while they continue their mischief and sneaking around. I know they look cool in suits, but I feel they lost their uniqueness (Like the Team Rocket Trio just went legit or something). All in all, an interesting setup for the next episode (whose name I can't stop laughing about). COME ON BABY, LIGHT MY FIRE! :awesome:

I really hope they outfitted Nirvash with a laser this time or i will be very disappointed. Last series, Nirvash spewed a laser by episode 2 and then stuck with the "Doomarang knife". Ao needs to learn some close-quarter combat soon or Nirvash is just gonna become another Gundam goddamn. I mean...

I was trying to forgive its pacing from episode 1 for that very same reason, but BONES simply HAS to realize that they have 24 episodes to start and finish the story.
Literally they have 19 episodes left. 19.

I have a feeling we'll get a hint to the villain next episode, then normal fighting for four episodes, then heavy plot stuff after.
