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.
If you Seen Aquarion or Aquarion evol before watching this you well be disappointed. first the op or end is not done by akino with bless4. then there is character they look horrible to me and the mech's are the only thing i don't super dislike. But the most disappointing thing to me is no fudo and that all i have to say because if you you have seen the other aquarions show you know what i mean.
if you haven't seen any of the first two aquarion watch this first because you want be as disappointed with the show and it might be enjoyable to watch.read more
Lemme get something right first. Aquarion is never about serious plots, you don't watch it for the serious plot, you watch it for the silly character interaction and silly attacks.
The best part of Sousei? The silly episodes, which was about 3/4 of the show. Best part of Evol? First half. I hope you get what I'm trying to say here.
Anyway, Logos has a pretty silly premise, not a great plot so far, but it's very interesting, especially with all the links to the words and whatnot.
Art? Sure it ain't good, but it shouldn't be the one factor that deters you from watching it.
Music/Sound? There's no Akino/bless4 so far, but May'n makes it up for that imo. As for the seiyuu, they fit the characters, that's pretty standard.
Characters, this is where Logos shine. they are all weird people with funny aspects to them, and their personality mash well together. The best parts of the episodes is always the interaction, Akira being totally disconnected from the others from his savior obsession, Maia not knowing anything other than her mission, etc. They make good use of their quirks and made their interaction entertaining.
Enjoyment: Refer to Characters.
I personally give it a 9. I like good/entertaining characters, and they gave me the latter, in a silly premise. What more could I ask for?read more
Has a rather dull feeling compared to the other prequels and why even call this a prequel this should be a spin off rather since we don't get a continuation of the story and just get a new story.The characters are reduced to kids even a loli was added (makes me wonder if they're going to follow a similar pattern in today's anime) animation in all was good but the CG design of aquarion does not blend well to the art.For the OST I'm sad to say that it wasn't what I have expected to this long running enjoyable series instead of going out and doing the usual which is what most of the viewers would prefer adding to that epic feeling when they insert the OP or ED to the fight scenes this was poorly or not even done at all. overall its a mediocre series for me, that "AQUARION FEELING"
is "GONE", If your going to watch this then go ahead but be advised that for those who watched the other two series you'll be rather disappointed or lets just say baffled to what they have done to this series and for those who haven't watched then watch this first before Genesis and EVOL (that's the best option so you won't get that feeling of disappointment based on my preferences).
To sum it up.
All the charactars have a generic design. Animation quality is dull. The scene of the joining is dull. No insert songs. OP is very weak.I loved Aquarion EVOL and Genesis but Logos doesn't have charismatic characters, good music, or good songs.read more
My first thought was "...no", but I figured the other Aquarions were also a little weird at first. I came to love them after a few episodes. So I watched 2 more episodes. There are more annoying kids as part of the team now and it seems they have dropped the target age-group of the show to 6-7. I have to draw the line somewhere and "ballet dancing robot to look cool as a fatal strike and not ironically" is a little over the edge. To top it off it's not very cute either, the main character is like Narukami Yu meets Rock Lee. So in short I wouldn't recommend this even if you are a 6 year old girl. read more
