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.

I was a HUGE fan of the original Eureka Seven series, so I had to watch this when I first heard about it. I gotta say, I kinda liked it.

The characters were pretty decent, the storyline took an interesting route with the series, and it kept the same fast-paced action sequences from the original. Though confused with how everything tied into the original series at first, the ending was a pleasant one that had me satisfied.

I will admit, some will probably not like this because the show really does not fully explain what is going on in the world around them and kind ...

Mixed Feelings
The story is realy gone down from original. They introduce all sort of uneeded aspects, like time traveling and universeal traveling. Also why did they make that Renton and Eureka can't have kids in their universe. I also hopped that the story would focus on more Eureka and Renton as adults. The only descent episodes were 23 and 24.
Renton only had screen time of 3 episodes, that really sad. I was hopping to see more of the original gekko crew.

Overall the Eureka Seven Astral Ocean was mediocre at best. Character Ao was kinda to into what is right or wrong. Astral Ocean shoulden't ...

This could've been an amazing. I don't get mad when a series that has finished its story gets a sequel. Even though it's ended, it doesn't mean it cannot be built on to be better. And just because the original series was about counter-culture, it doesn't have to be same in the sequel too. Eureka Seven universe was good enough to be built on. There were a lot of things to tell about the world. But AO couldn't manage that. It is bad as a sequel and pretty below average for an anime. So much wasted potential...

TL;DR: It certainly does not add something valuable to ...

Welcome to the House of Pies: How Anime Markets Itself

It's entirely possible that anime in 2016 might seem perfectly healthy to you. But there are a lot of folks in the industry who are worried for its creative future, and I would argue with good reason. Is it too late to do anything about it?

There are only a few studios whose name goes above the title, but BONES is definitely one of them. They're one of the powerhouses of the industry, and for good reason.
