THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Sora Amata? It seems like he was a descendant of the prequel people? (At lease I felt it.) He works in a theater where customers came less Attractors' constant attack.

Rabbit-lookalike cat is "Shushu" on the girl's head.

Attractors attacking and Aquarions to the rescue. M Aquarion = female riders and S Aquarion = male riders?

With the attack, Amata got stucked under protecting the girl. He used his power inside the boot to get in to one of Aquarion. He did "forbidden" spell. "Evol"s birth.

Kinda was even in the first series though. What i find even more funny is that they worship a war machine/genesis device originally used to kill and feed on humans. Ya know before Apolonius swiped it from the shadow angels and used it with humans to beat em 24,000 years before the new series.

Seems to have started off on a more interesting note than the Aquarion series before this one. Loved the concept behind it, the animation is good and the music is still the same which is great :p

5/5.

For now it's far better than the first series thanks to Yamamoto as co-director and the decreasing influence of Shoji Kawamori (who is a great creator/writer but not a good director by any means). The fights were awesome and the characters already more interesting overall compared to the first series; the concepts better developped and introduced also.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

So far I wouldn't say it's needed, but I would assume later in the anime it will become more important. If you don't want to watch the entire anime I suggest just watching the OVA recaps.

I always looked at the OVAs as an AU story that wound up affecting the regular series.

okay
i am a fan of Aquarion first of all
and i enjoyed the first episode that looks like it takes place either a millenia after the first or 12,000 years after the first one, they are kinda of vague on how long after.

Trust me this wasn't corny we haven't hit corny just yet. Try Gravion or Goddannar if ya want super cheesy stuff. I've seen even cheesier than that OR this but too tired to recall it all.

Uhm, i don't really understand. -MAY BE SPOILER-

What do you think guys about the other guy with red hair? Authors may at LEAST not to do two characters too similiars .. Or this may be just the way they want things. Dunno. Want see more ..


Btw, 5.0 OST, action, char.design. I hope this show won't make me feel bad as the first season.

As others have said Apollos soul from the original may have been split as was his ancient females loves in the original. Though it could be transdimensional counterparts and so on. Either way it is NOT a coincidence and DEFINITELY on purpose. I suggest watching the original series(the OVA and movie don't cover this if i recall/have heard right) since it may make more sense then.

Because in some ways it is. Also this series is FAR less open about it than the last one trust me. People WOULD have thought you watching porn from the sounds they made when merging.

That was interesting. Not so sure about the extremely generic and oddly use of the ''Transformers'' transformation scenes. But, still very good. Looking forward to the next!

Dat high budget anime. It seems that Yūki Kaji who also voiced Arata from Accel World voices the MC for this series. Well, isn't that interesting?

While I admit that I did not enjoy the original series before, this sequel sure has gotten quite interesting.

With the annoncement of the dub release in December I have started to re-watch the series and some parts about the first fight made me realize 2 things.

SPOILERS:

Later Mikono's "connection" is fully realized, but it also may have been the reason for everyone's powers here being amplified: Zessica's hand print in the mountain, Keyenne's vision being visible to everyone, and Amata's power levitating not only Aquarion but the ground and shackles around it.

Also, we have the same exact first merge from the first series here. We have both reincarnations, the heroine's brother, and the big bad's unwitting pawn toward the series end. Only with one more person this time.

The abductors were just a bunch of pervs.
They were clearly spying on Mikono's ass and then her boobs....

I can't say that I'm impressed by what I just watched, but I'm willing to give this series a shot. On a different note, I can see that Mikono is probably going to be a problem for me.

Mikono chargin' muh hi-ero particles...
oops, wrong anime... (almost)

I sort of dropped the first season our of losing interest. Picked this one up because it's supposed to be a bit different and not really need season1. I'm not impressed. It feels about the same... probably won't make it past one more episode.

You call THAT a cat?!
