THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
That new guy also has blue hair. More attacks by him... Truth about the world? He finally found the main guy and what is he doing with that woman's robot...

Then the story moved to childhood girl, and the island. (and with black and white) The girl met that new guy disguising the main guy to that poisonous flower. She saw him in the past, too, and chose him over the main guy because she can fly with him. (In black and white) He was dreaming for 3 days apparently.

But it really happened??

His "to be continued" became lower, too.

I'm kinda curious if Truth is a secret..like a humanoid Secret. I remember there was something similar in Strike Witches where there was a Neuroi (the main antagonists of the series) that took on a human form later on in the series.

That damn shape-shifter is on the loose which means death and destruction.



His mentions related to Eureka and Nirvash seems suspicious as he somehow knows their connection, Ao's mother, as well as other secrets.



A rather confusing episode and I'm guessing some payback next time. Hopefully.

The Naru "betrayal" felt quite abrupt. Definitely Truth had affected her memories in some way.

This episode felt a bit... disjointed. It could be because of the trippy "dream" sequences, though they certainly seem connected to what happened with Naru, via through the Scub Coral somehow. I was hoping for a bit of wind-down in the next episode, believing that there would be some sort of conflict-resolution during this one, but it just seems no one can get a break from the rapid-fire events that keep presenting themselves, which leaves for something to be desired in the character department (this may yet be salvaged though, if I'm wrong about the next episode).

Overall, the episode was good; the first half was pretty sloppy, not only from an animation / art standpoint, but the actions of the security detail were borderline moronic (how many of your own slaughtered men does it take for you to stop trying to apprehend him alive?) - the inclusion of this "Mirror" person also seemed shoehorned in pretty lazily; I'm sure she'll see some relevant use in the coming episodes, but her "association" with Truth here seemed shallow. As for the second half, and the whole trippy dream-sequences, this could either turn out to be a nonsensical flop, or something great; I'll have faith in the writers' ability to foreshadow and be able to make sense of things in retrospection, but, as often, I'll have to take another leap of faith on this one.

While this episode may have left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth, I still enjoyed it, and will probably appreciate it more when I've seen more of this series.

As for our mystery-LFO seen at the end (no pun intended), it definitely seems to be theEND as seen from the first series, all nice-and-white right before it poofed into a cloud of smoke. Anyways, given this development, I'm sure theEND was "reclaimed" by the Scub right as it was in danger from being disintegrated by Ontario #8, just like it "reclaimed" many of the humans associated with desperation disease at the end, when it was sensing impending doom from Dewey's plan. Needless to say, if this dimensional traversal theory still holds, then it seems something is going seriously awry.

Oh my god this episode sucked. Wow, this show just holds none of the charm Eureka 7 had. Eureka 7 is one of my favorites animes ever made, this show encapsulates none of what made it good. Bland cardboard characters, a terrible non coherent story, and boring so damn boring.

What happened to this show! I started watching this because I loved Eureka Seven so much, but this episode doesn't even feel like it's from the same series.

I really hope this show gets better. It started ok but now...

EDIT: I probably should have mentioned...I absolutely hate NTR.

DROPPED


LUL. Still got 17 Episodes to go, stuff can easily pick back up, but you're right about it not having the flare of Eureka 7. This sequel, IMO doesn't feel like much of a sequel. It's almost like a Spin off, just because of how much information isn't provided, and everything is changed 100%. Not feeling the same way I did when watching E7

Just curious what does NTR stand for?

Think I might know but not too sure, I'm guessing its a Japanese abbreviation where the loved ones are taken away from the main protagonist.

So many butt hurt fags crying over there wifey being taken away XD.

I didnt release there was going to be supernatural powers, this episode kind of resembled akira for a minute. But finally we have given Naru a place in the plot she was just a useless heroine before hand. And its not really NTR when "truth" is actually a Genderless creature.

So many issues with the episode:

-So stupid that truth made an explosion but only mirror survived.
-In fact why is a scub coral research company hiring a singer in the first place?
-Smugglers are annoying and how they got the job in the first place is retarded
-Truth has to be the most wierdest enemy I have ever seen, from the get up to the holding a microphone and telling his goal to the enemy
-Rebecca should have died by Truth's attack but survived because of plot armour
-Such disrespect by Jiroh/Gazelle to his father, that pissed me off
-Didn't really notice how slutty Naru is dressed
-How the hell did Ao get to Naro was exactly? She was walking randomly alone and then appears with Truth
-Why didn't Ao use Nirvash to catch Naru
-The two above points was a dream (waste of time) but it did happen. Does that make sense?
-Naru going with Truth was unquestionable forced and didn't make sense and why the hell truth is even interested in Naro]


Biggest pet peeve with the show is how Ao looks like a lesbian dyke. Sorry but the hair cut is feminine (including the hair colour) and his god damn LFO custom.

FIX THIS PLEASE!

-So stupid that truth made an explosion but only mirror survived.


Thats probably because he took care she survives. Guy just kills fodder, not people who he finds interesting.

-In fact why is a scub coral research company hiring a singer in the first place?


Obviously, there is something about Elena/Mirror that is not normal.

-Truth has to be the most wierdest enemy I have ever seen, from the get up to the holding a microphone and telling his goal to the enemy


Saw quite a few such people... some even do it if the enemy has a chance of fighting them. Truth is (currently) unbeatable so he can fool around as much as he wants. It is like you play a game with "God Mode" cheat or have an OP character: you fuck around as much as you want

-Rebecca should have died by Truth's attack but survived because of plot armour


He just pushed her away, didn't do anything fatal or destructive. Why he didn't attempt to kill her is most likely "on a whim"

-Such disrespect by Jiroh/Gazelle to his father, that pissed me off


To be perfectly honest, his father is a narrow-minded dick.

-The two above points was a dream (waste of time) but it did happen. Does that make sense?


If Truth is to be trusted, this ain't a normal world. As such, some things work differently. How did this happen will obviously be explained later on.

-Naru going with Truth was unquestionable forced and didn't make sense and why the hell truth is even interested in Naro


dunno, probably because she is not a normal human... she can fly for fuck's sake.

i can't follow anymore this anime. wtf is going on. its like random events and we have still no clue why this is a sequel......i mean yeah we saw eureka and stuff but its just so random.


Just because one doesn't understand what is currently happening doesn't make it random.
Also, sequels are not necessarily made in exact same style as the their prequels. In other words, as someone here said it is a spin-off style sequel: same universe but focuses on a different parts of it in a different way.

Holy crap your fanboyism is too far, most if not all your explanations were assumptions on your part. Try as you might but this episode was a disaster on many levels. Why should I assume all those things just for the episode to make sense? It was just ass pulling from the creator of the show and smeared all across the episode.

Step back and re watch the episode to see how things were a mess. I am trying to like this show but it has so many things wrong with it that's its getting hard.

Is it bad that I find Truth more interesting than AO? Anyway it's looking like this series isn't doing the original any favors. It's Last Exile: Ginyoku no Fam(well not that bad) all over again.

NTR, lol.

Actually, it didn't feel that abrupt to me. And actually, this episode gave me that feeling of E7. These dream-mixed-with-reality episodes from E7, to be more precise. There were some if you don't remember. It's really interesting.
I'm really curious about mr Truth.
Still, like someone above said, it's Ginyoku no Fam all over again... Doesn't really feel like a sequel. Though in Fam we at least had some old characters appear.

this reminds me a little bit of the weird dream Renton had in the previous season.

And damn, I hate the direction this is going... I don't like the idea that Ao has a love rival.

I can't believe so many of you are serious about the NTR; I don't think she's "in love" with him - most of these dream "sequences" I believe were just Truth mind-fucking and infiltrating Ao's mind, and consequently, found Naru. My take is that with Ao being a half-Coralian, he's almost sort of like a walking compac drive, always having a sort of link to the Scub Coral. Assuming that Truth is similar in this regard, and has mastery over his Coralian abilities, upon finding Naru through Ao's memories, was able to recognize her latent abilities through their connection to the Scub Coral. I'm assuming the actual first encounter between Naru and Truth was different, and just another reason why this whole NTR theory isn't yet viable.

Another complaint I'm getting tired of seeing is how this series "just doesn't feel the same at all", and I ask: What of it? I personally find it refreshing that it's taking such a different setting and mood in contrast to the original series, and commend the creators for taking a riskier route for such. I'll also concede, however, that this last episode was relatively weak, and probably the worst in the series thus far, but was hardly the train-wreck most are making it out to be. Regarding its "incoherence", mostly these "dream" sequences, I'll just say that we have to have faith in the writers for being able to make sense of it later on, just as we did with all the trippy Acperience episodes from the first series (though they were often considerably more abstract).

Oh, and Fam (Last Exile) was an absolute failure in my eyes, and while I can see why people draw the comparison, I don't think Ao has even come close to falling as far.

I skipped a lot of this episode. I was confused in the latter half cause I did not know that Ao was dreaming. Dissapointed that we did not get to see more of Truth after Ao launch the Mark I.

I find it funny people think thinks the original was better while at episode 7 in E7 nothing important happened. Even by ep14 in E7, the plot hasn't really progressed that much either.

Nowadays, the time where slow start and solid character building is long gone. In 2012, if you don't have some random action sequences in the first episode, you can't survive. It's a sad reality but times have changed.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Yep....I actually started this episode and remembered that "Oh wait...We have a new douchenozzle here to join our character roster", and honestly i wasn't looking forward to this episode at all, because i knew exactly what would happen. The creators would push this guy as an extremely powerful antagonist, which the entire episode we'll get absolutely no information about him, and we just get to see that "Ok, he's overpowered".

Yaaay....Nothing about this episode was enjoyable. It was just bland and overall boring.....Then we get Naru being a straight up bitch to Ao in his dream. Then he wakes up only to find she's kidnapped......Or more or less she left with the douche in black. Yeah.....Definitely liking Eureka 7 a lot better than this "sequel".

I agree that the environment feels way too different and that it feels more of a spin-off than a sequel.

Eureka 7 didnt get good(for me) till like ep 24 or something,at the end of the 2nd season or the beginning of the 3rd season(when i mean 2nd or 3rd season i mean by the Openings) that's when i really started to love this series.
If you dont know what NTR means it's just a abbreviation for Netorare here is some info on the topic for you non Hentai readers(or younger audience), just click the spoiler tab.

That being said i didnt like Naru to begin with, she seemed like slutty type, just look how she dresses lol jk.

Goddamn it. This episode hurt the series for me. Now we don't know what parts of the 'dream' happened, what parts were metaphors, and what parts just plain didn't happen.

Still considered a spin-off. As a sequel this is just garbage. I consider a sequel something that progresses a story, and not take it into a completely new place. At this point unless we have any of the original characters, other than Eureka......Then i honestly don't give a flying.....Well i just don't care about the connection between this and Eureka 7.

Worst episode so far imo; the antagonist was way OP; certain ppl survived in BS ways, like that singer Mirror and such; the second half "dream" was totally O_O, also Naru was T_T the whole freaken way, i won't drop it or anything since it still has a ways to go and it can change, but with the way its going my hopes have been shot down a bit, this episode reminded me even more of how inferior this series is to its prequel.

A sequel is not just limited to a continuation of a show. You can't argue with that, regardless of what you think a sequel is, this is a sequel having direct relation to the past series (with nirvash, scub corals, and eureka). Plus the show has more than half the way to go, don't get your panties in a bunch because there's nothing super solid that links it to the past series yet.

Oh, and anyone who really expected this to be exactly like the first E7 is a complete idiot. Different cast, in the distant future (at least a 15 year skip or however old AO is) so this obviously WASN'T going to be E7. Idiots need to realize that a sequel of this nature will more than likely have a different feel than previous series.

My thoughts exactly, it's not bad enough to drop.....But compared to it's predecessor it's pretty bad.....Them introducing the "overpowered enemy with superpowers" really set this title back for me.....I don't really mind that trope, however when it comes to this series....I expected better....Eureka 7 might've had Duey or w/e you spell his name....But he was in no way overpowered with super powers.....and even though the Nirvash was extremely powerful, Renton still struggled, even the END still didn't seem too overpowering.

Iunno....I just feel that this series is a little more generic compared to Eureka 7.....

Worst episode so far imo; the antagonist was way OP; certain ppl survived in BS ways, like that singer Mirror and such; the second half "dream" was totally O_O, also Naru was T_T the whole freaken way, i won't drop it or anything since it still has a ways to go and it can change, but with the way its going my hopes have been shot down a bit, this episode reminded me even more of how inferior this series is to its prequel.


My thoughts exactly, it's not bad enough to drop.....But compared to it's predecessor it's pretty bad.....Them introducing the "overpowered enemy with superpowers" really set this title back for me.....I don't really mind that trope, however when it comes to this series....I expected better....Eureka 7 might've had Duey or w/e you spell his name....But he was in no way overpowered with super powers.....and even though the Nirvash was extremely powerful, Renton still struggled, even the END still didn't seem too overpowering.

Iunno....I just feel that this series is a little more generic compared to Eureka 7.....

Dewey had more power at his disposal than Truth does... well, at least seen thus far. Not only did he have amazing cunning and charisma, but by the end, he had the entire Federation at his disposal, with all its military and technological might. In order for Truth, who has none of that, to be a viable threat, it doesn't hurt to give him some extraordinary abilities.

Dewey Novak, in my opinion, was even more powerful, as he not only had an amazing penchant for cunning and charisma, but also by the end had the entire technological and military strength of the Federation behind him. Truth, conversely, is at this point a great mystery, and we can't really comprehend what kind of threat he poses at this point. Belonging to no faction other than himself, it only serves to give him extraordinary abilities, all the more if he's a being born from the Scub Coral itself. Even Norb, who was completely human, was able to channel the power of the Scub Coral through himself with an embedded compac drive. Conceptually, a being born from the Scub, or connected to it in a greater way should be able to possess powers far beyond what Norb has displayed. This Truth character can work, as long as they give him some substance.

Crazy theory: "Truth" is a corrupted Coralian, born from Dewey's madness. Remember at the end of the first series, he devised a Dead Man's Switch, with the compac drive embedded in his chest? I'm assuming it had an unintended side-effect. It was really only intended to forcing Eureka / Anemone to become the new (and consequently, unstable) command cluster, but having the compac embedded also deeply connected himself with the Scub Coral itself; I'm assuming that upon his "death", a residual of his consciousness remained within the Scub, though probably lost its sense of identity, and eventually, in the exodus of the Scub Coral into this other universe, "Truth" was born along the way, seemingly in an amnesiac state. This is of course purely out-there speculation, but an interesting thought, nonetheless. It may also explain his obsession with the Nirvash and Eureka.

So many issues with the episode:

-So stupid that truth made an explosion but only mirror survived.
-In fact why is a scub coral research company hiring a singer in the first place?
-Smugglers are annoying and how they got the job in the first place is retarded
-Truth has to be the most wierdest enemy I have ever seen, from the get up to the holding a microphone and telling his goal to the enemy
-Rebecca should have died by Truth's attack but survived because of plot armour
-Such disrespect by Jiroh/Gazelle to his father, that pissed me off
-Didn't really notice how slutty Naru is dressed
-How the hell did Ao get to Naro was exactly? She was walking randomly alone and then appears with Truth
-Why didn't Ao use Nirvash to catch Naru
-The two above points was a dream (waste of time) but it did happen. Does that make sense?
-Naru going with Truth was unquestionable forced and didn't make sense and why the hell truth is even interested in Naro]


Biggest pet peeve with the show is how Ao looks like a lesbian dyke. Sorry but the hair cut is feminine (including the hair colour) and his god damn LFO custom.

FIX THIS PLEASE!


Some of your pet peeves are just stupid

-Naru - Dressing slutty, well thats not really slutty.. Compared to a lot of anime, but its getting there
-Singer- I believe she is Elena, just because of how she has the same skin color and how her voice is the same
-Naru going with truth, something to do with her past and how she got sick (Probably connected to -Truth). As we see a LFO near the end (TheEND LFO From E7)
-Jiroh/Gazelle disrespect? We always see this type of time in anime get used to it.
-How did Ao get to Naru? it was all a dream..if you payed attention (For Ao, it was a dream, but in reality it actually happened) Truth copied, Ao's form I believe, or Naru imagined Ao.

So much hate here....

There are some cliche shitz like over powered villain, important people surviving in most radical ways, dreams coming true, etc. But still lot better than other airing anime in this season. Accel World for a example. Accel World in other hand is 99% cliche but most people admire it.

The reason for high scrutiny is based upon love and respect for the previous series, which will consequently be a basis for judging this one; in this light I can understand it. However, I think a lot of people had misplaced expectations for what the series would be, and I generally think the quality has been up to par with the original. I will say a weak point of this series, thus far, has been its presumptions about its characters; it hasn't done quite enough to invest us in its characters up to this point, with the exception of Ao, Naru, and our favorite band of smugglers (specifically Gazelle). Fleur and Elena need some developing, but it seems that we're at least getting some for Fleur next episode.

Is it bad that I find Truth more interesting than AO? Anyway it's looking like this series isn't doing the original any favors. It's Last Exile: Ginyoku no Fam(well not that bad) all over again.


Not even close.

Perhaps so, perhaps not, i can't say since i haven't seen Fam, i only saw Last Exile; but i can however agree that this series is by no means doing the original any favors...if anything is "not even close" it is this series to the original. At this point I'm trying my best to not even compare them, for it is insulting to do so. As a spinoff maybe it can regain itself since it has a lot of episodes...but as a sequel....it would need a freaken 180
