The story is set on Okinawa's isolated island of Iwado, which has seen a growing movement advocating a return to an autonomous government. Ao Fukai, a 12-year-old boy with a missing father, lives on the island with an old doctor named Toshio and is about to enter middle school. Ao's mother was taken away a decade ago by unknown individuals. Naru Arata, Ao's 12-year-old childhood friend and the story's heroine, lives with her father, older sister, and grandmother. She has a "Yuta" power awakened within her due to an incident when she was young. A mysterious entity called "Secret" suddenly appears and launches an attack on the Scub Coral lifeform on the island. Ao launches a certain military FP called "Nirvash" aboard a Japanese military transport in his fervent desire to protect the island.

Building on an existing storyline isn't an easy thing to do - especially when the ending of the original tale has a degree of finality to it. That doesn't stop people making the attempt though, and nowhere is this more prominent than in the world of fanfiction. This rather odd realm of amateur (and not-so-amateur), writers is filled with continuations, alternate retellings, character side-stories, non-canon additions, and a host of other works that reflect the fan's passion for the source material. Although they often lack the quality and direction (and sometimes the logic and common sense), of professional pieces, they're generally imaginative yarns that can read more

Eureka Seven AO serves as a sequel to the fantastic Eureka Seven of a few years ago. however to call it a sequel is akin to calling a doughnut a loaf bread, it shares many of the same base elements, is similar on a surface and level but make for totally different products in the end. one of which has a giant hole in the middle.

The hole in this context is the story, or rather the lack of it. The series mulls around being a monster of the week show for the majority of it's run all the while attempting to raise mysteries and intrigue read more

As quick overview to this review: I liked Eureka AO but, I can't get into what I liked without discussing its shortcomings as a series and sequel first. There are a considerable amount of shortcomings to this series but, I am going to try to condense them down into three primary faults from which other problems with this series stem.

Probably the biggest problem I initially had with this sequel is that it denies fans the happy ending that a lot of us had pictured as following the end of Eureka Seven. Ao's parents are missing, Ao's island home in is remarkably different from read more

OK. First off, let me just say that this series was a mess.

I had huge expectations for this sequel since I'm a fan of E7, however, this didn't even come close. What I enjoyed about E7 was the story and character development. I actually felt connected to many of the characters. The story flowed very nicely. I even liked the Nirvash as its own character.

E7AO started off ok while introducing the characters, then it quickly went downhill. The focus was more on the story and fight scenes. I dont think the story was good, but that's where the focus was.

I liked Elena and Fleur and read more

Teenagers protecting the world from mecha creatures that aim to attack the earth, while piloting mechas themselves.

Both tell the story of a boy who is thrown into a "new world", having to fight to save the earth. Evangelion focuses on the emotional trauma of these events. Whereas Eureka Seven AO focuses more on the events themselves and the action.
plot confusion new theories and a time leap, what else do you need?
The same character in both anime is only an alien. I don't know that their producer like to put this character into it. But, I still enjoyed this anime.
These anime shows show very similar resemblances,
These are characters that are the same, and i know i could have compared some more but you get the point they are pretty similar.

Eureka 7 AO - Gundam 00

Elena Peoples - Lockon Stratos
Ao Fuka i - Setsuna F. Seiei
Fleur Blanc - Allelujah Haptism
Naru Arata - Marina Ismail
Georg - Haro
Truth - Graham Aker
Gazelle - Lasse Aeon
Rebecka Hallström - Sumeragi Lee Noriega

Now in my opinion i was constantly reminded of Gundam 00 while watching Eureka seven ao from the mech pilots to their weapons and skills, and secret and famous special unit they serve.

Both portrays a story line that sets on a futuristic/ sci-fi world. Both animes have shown the use of manned robotics in thei series.
