Eureka Seven: AO (エウレカセブンAO Eureka Sebun Ei Ō?, "Astral Ocean") is an ongoing mecha anime TV series by Bones, serving as a sequel to the original Eureka Seven anime. AO tells the story of Ao Fukai, a young boy who "sets destiny in motion again when he held the power." It will be adapted into both an anime and a manga.
Ao Fukai is a 13-year-old boy living in Japan's Okinawa Prefecture on the island of Iwadojima with Dr. Toshio Fukai ever since Ao's mother disappeared 10 years ago. When a mysterious organization attacks the local Scub Coral, Ao somehow gets mixed up in the battle and manages to activate a mysterious robot called the Nirvash while it is being transported by the Self-Defense Forces, even though no one has been able to activate the Nirvash before.

luffyluffy, the thing is, it so easily could have been good. It really could have. There was no reason for BONES to do this the way it did. They just really really cocked up the end. I mean it probably should have introduced Renton a couple of episodes earlier and have his reconciliation with AO earlier. But the old end was bad decisions after worse decisions. Honestly. That should have been an easy win for BONES.

Wow, I was actually thinking about giving this series a shot after greatly enjoying the original series. After seeing the comments here as well as other forums, I guess it's for the best that I did avoided it.
Guess Bones didn't learn their lesson from Darker Than Black in that they shouldn't create sequels. =(
Well I haven't seen the finale, but I had a feeling that this was going to be a BOOOOONES!! ending. Too much of a cluster*bleep* near the end. Was Renton at least awesome?

Spoiler:Eps 23 + 24
The only good part was when they used a Niji remix for the OST, and of course with the time the animation was good. For the rest, see above post. Especially with the characters, no conclusion there at all.

I just feel so dejected at that conclusion... What a let down. On a positive note the art and animation were gorgeous, but all of that pales before the narrative diffusion that happened here. I feel as though the whole anime up until now was a cruel joke-- all of our time wasted investing in characters that were never going to pan out. None of the villains seriously changed their ways or followed through, and most characters good or bad were rendered irrelevant.
Ao just removed himself from the picture and everyone was forgotten along with him. We don't get a conclusion for Fleur, Elena or Naru. Romantically or as characters. The crew of random dudes who have sorta just hung around since the beginning have continued to hang around.
I'm sad guys. That just wasn't good and it so obviously wasn't ever going to be. It leaves an awful taste in my mouth. Was that really all you had to offer us, AO? That was all you wanted to say and do with this anime? Gosh, now I know how teachers feel when one of their good students suddenly submits a half-baked paper. It's like you put your expectations on someone and they just didn't care. If this was all they were going to do they should have just focused on Renton, Eureka and Ao and made it a movie. Why get us so involved with all of these characters?
True disappointment here.

Ah I see, that makes perfect sense. I thought NIBASHU was looking a bit fabulous.
