Synopsis

For thousands of years after its development, mankind used the written word for communication between people and generations. As millenia passed and technology became more prevalent, writing - and thus, communication as a whole - diminished, until it could only be found on cell phones and computer screens. Seeing an opportunity, the sorcerer Sogan Kenzaki starts infecting words with the Nesta Virus, which brings them to life and turns them into monsters called MJBK (Menace of Japanese with Biological Kinetic energy).

To counter this attack against humanity, an organization known as DEAVA (Division of EArth Verbalism Ability) assembles a group of youths with the ability of "Verbalism". They have to pilot the vector machines, which are used to form the mechas dubbed "Aquarions". The one wild card in the situation is the self-dubbed "savior", a young man who is the direct relative of a famous calligrapher, named Akira Kaibuki.

Rest easy Mal, for the Savior is here.

My favorite mecha anime in a long time, Aquarion Logos is a tragically misunderstood show that seems to get unwarranted hate for not being a sequel to the original Aquarion. (Uh yeah, it’s a spinoff guys.) or just being generally weird, which it is.

Logos is a very weird show, but that’s why it’s so great. It isn’t like other anime, it isn’t cliched, or predictable, you have no idea what to expect in any episode. All the characters are huge atypical weirdos unlike the heroes you’d expect from a super robot styled mecha action anime, and I’m thankful read more

Well, as a fan of the mecha genre who liked the previous Aquarions, once I heard this one was bad that people even dropped it, well, I thought about trying it myself long after it was released, and I had a number of surprises.

First, unlike Evol, it's not a sequel, nor a prequel, it's not part of the same timeline. The whole fight between humans and angels, aquarion as being almost like a divine entity, that's not part of the story. The story is completely new and isolated, and the usual entities like DEAVA and Vectors, while keeping the same name, are completely different entities. read more

Aquarion Logos has a lot to say about what we say and how we say it. We encounter words daily and it's how we communicate. This is a show combines sociology and mecha action to create a giant love letter to the written language and logophilia.

Our heroes are all members of the verbalism club, a covert group that operates inside a cafe. Their mission is to fight the M.J.B.K, monsters of the week with the power to corrupt and erase concepts out of existence. These monsters are given life by a man named sougon, someone who feels that words will lead to humanity's Downfall.

"Twelve thousand years ago, there was... What's that? That part of the story's gone? And Yoko Kanno's only doing the opening songs? Well... Bugger."

The first Aquarion (I rated it an 8) was, despite some incoherence in the plot and cliche'd characterization towards the beginning, a show that nevertheless demonstrated "epic" in visual animation and soundtrack.

The second Aquarion (I rated that a 7) was more about a teenage romance told over 24-ish episodes, so less emphasis on "epic", but still a fun time-waster. It still had the "12000 years ago" mythology and some of the lore from the first series and its backstory, albeit with read more
