THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I'm not too sure if I like the OP theme song for this season. I think there might be some foreshadowing in it as well although it is quite catchy..

Kokone seems like a timid girl that's introduced helping out an old lady though.

I guess they didn't waste time to develop parts of the 'Logos World'. The part with the chaotic text or whatever seemed kinda interesting but I think the series will have to take more time to explain that. Definitely interested in the rest of this season. That Akira guy also has a lot of potential. The action imo feels alright so far.

AQUARIONNNNNNNNN

NotZessica a best. Unfortunately I know she's already going to lose to the fluffy girl.
Besides her, this seemed pretty bad. MC gives me flashbacks of the Aldnoah Zero's Inaho. Hopefully emotionless mecha pilots don't become a new trend.

Probably...
I couldn't understand all the kanji and some of the worlds since I'm not fluent in Japanese so I'm not sure how far to tell you they don't matter.

On another note... Now that:
a) Apollonius x Celiane have had their reunion (1st season)
b) Pollon x Celiane have had their reunion (2nd season)
c) Apollo x Sliva have had their reunion (2nd season)
... and with their reunions a light touch of romance ...
The only coupling that's really lacking is Apollonius x Touma...
That said; I hope this season gives Touma some of the happiness he didn't get in the other seasons.

Feels like a completely basic robot anime where they find the amazing pilot on the first episode and how we get an exploding first episode...

Honestly super tired of this kind of animes. Can't see myself bear through the whole series.

The Aquarion series always uses this to get the story going... would you rather we wait till half way in the series for someone special to come and then ignore a group of 3-4 who were the main characters up until that point..?

EDIT:
At least this time it's someone who has "come to save this world" and is determined to be a hero... rather than some lucky guy who happens to be the reincarnation of...

i watched the second season but after watching the Sousei no Aquarion Evol i realized i cant possibly force myself to go through another season with the absolute ugliest 3DCGI mechs ever created(along with zegapain and some others).

feels like its gonna be the same shit allover again anyway.

What are your thoughts on the first episode? Do it look as bad as Sousei no Aquarion? Sousei no Aquarion was a anime so full of bullshit and as the anime progressed it felt more and more stupid. At least the OP was great =]

I passed MILES away from Aquarion Evolution just because the first series was bad, but...this one...this one is the ONLY mecha anime this season.
I'm considering pick it up, but i'm not really sure if i really should that to myself.

I loved sousei no aquarion.
I liked aquarion EVOL's zessica, because I saw touma in her and thought a female touma was very hot.
... I like the new girl who looks like zessica (who might be touma again? *yay*) ...

I sad might be touma again? because I felt like zessica was the reincarnation of the good half of touma. Even the touma who hated all humans (the evil part; which is mikage) wouldn't posses a vessel of a lowly human without a suitable reason, right? "The reincarnation of my good half" would definitely merit a suitable vessel for the human hating touma.

Please be reincarnated touma!

@Kaetokiha: EVOL was MILES better than the original.

@kyle: But Touma was sealed inside Apollonius......

Also, Apollo=/=Apollonius, it was always Pollon (which is why Apollo was animal-like in the first place) not to mention the numerous hints beside that.

I like Mikono equally as Zessica but that Touma!Zessica was BA....

Can't comment on episode since not subbed yet

PS. Fafner had uglier mech than Aquarion (except Soshi's mech, forgot name)

What the hell was i watching?

Where's akino OP? Where's epic battle ost? Where's the generic MUGEN PUNCH cry?
Where is Fudou Gen/Zen?

I don't like the Character design either and protagonist seems dumb with all this "i'm a savior" BS.

Nevertheless I'm hoping it will get better. AQUARIOOOOOON

It was so nostalgic.

Aquarion was one the first anime's i watched. so when i heard there was going to be a third season i was happy as fuck.

It was an overall good episode.

GO AQUARION!!
I don't like ships anyways! I like Fleets!!

Thoughts are in disarray.....

OP is too poppy? for my tastes, not to mention it's not Akino and ED sucks.
Art Style is weird, looks good on some characters and not in others. Interesting enemies, I didn't expect human enemies as well. I was surprised at the forced fusion with Maiya. The Mugen Fist was actually the Super version and it's supposed to be a different name I believe, and we'll see where the Savior schtick goes.

PS. I find Maiya a better LI especially since she's on the enemy's side.....be kinda stupid to win her over then leave her in the dust (not to mention I don't like Konone's stuttering which while typically cute, doesn't work for her....) though this is still ep 1 and things may change....

i like it for now, i feel like it's missing something. maybe i wanted it to be set in the same universe as the prequels, i don't think they're reincarnations of apollo and silvia anymore.
but it was nice, the mc is kinda funny and i like both girls

I usually like serious driven character types but Akira got got on my nerves. His insistence on being the savior to the point of getting in the way of people trying to do the same just made me wish he would he would fail horribly.

Not surprised to see people dropping this because of the OP/ED songs are not by AKINO/Bless4.

People complain when the MC is the Chosen one like Apollo, people complain when the MC is a lucky wuss like Amata...There's no pleasing these people.

Oh the shock of people having different tastes. :P But yeah, you can't really make things to please everyone out there and part of the fun is talking about what does and doesn't appeal. For me, as I said, I usually like the serious characters, but there's so many ways to go with that. It is entirely possible to be driven without completely disregarding other people.

Just finished watching episode 1. It's alright, I guess lol
I'm a huge Aquarion Fan, but I'm a little disappointed in this episode. The animation is great! But I do prefer Evol's animation, Logo's is just too much colour??? I think? (if that makes sense?). The Opening song for Logos though....meh.
I felt that the pacing was rushed, and they tried to explain the whole world to the viewers in a short space of time. Causing the episode to feel crammed. We don't need everything explained instantly, we can A work it out ourselves or B explain little by little to make the it feel less "Sardines in a can" like.
On the good side, it does have potential to be really good! Akira as a character seems interesting, as does the plot, but the puffy head girl (I'm bad with names lol) she's really going to have to do something to make me like her as a character. As her personality feels very wishy washy and I'm going to end up wanting to kill her off lol xD
It feels like it's missing something though, as if it's missing that spark that makes Aquarion, Aquarion. Also I wonder why only 2 people were needed to make Aquarion and not 3... Like Fudo said in the first season 3 arrows in a triangle is stronger than a straight arrow (or words to that effect lol, not seen Aquaion in ages! And I have bad memory). But anyway, I wonder how that will develop. Interesting..
This is just my own opinion though :)

Sousei Gattai, Go AQUARION!

I tell you it's missing the Fudo character in the first Episode and the Battle OST.

I agree completely, this season feels completely removed from the other two, even the animation feels off somehow compared to them.

Wondering the same thing, maybe the system was broken somewhere and the world forgot about it similar to how the first system was twisted into gender exclusivity in Evol. When Fudo comes back in to run Deava again, he'll probably remind them that 3 vectors is how it's supposed to work.


Yuno and Shin better make a reappearance!

Exactly! The animation just isn't right. I can't quite place my hand on it though, I thought originally it was too vivid, but that's not quite right either. Its been really bugging me lol

Yes! Fudo needs to make a reappearance and possibly. But then Yuno and Shin both have the book of genesis, so It makes me wonder how they'll get brought into it exactly. I can't see that one Ova being the last we see of them

I feel like it's almost too... modern. I'm still not sure that's the right word for what I think the issue is, but it's the closest I can think of. I get that the series is trying to make it feel like time has past since it most definitely has, but this Aquarion's world doesn't feel like it's as 'in tune' with the supernatural.

It would lame if it were too, the Book of Genesis has to be the key to fixing this 'word' issue right?

I don't know why you think EVOL butchered Aquarion but I don't agree, I found it way better ESPECIALLY in the romance department (Apollo and Silvia's romance felt unattached)....

On Logos: I believe this is an entirely different continuity

Yeah I understand what you mean, it's almost as if they've tried too hard to make it different that the series has fallen out of sync (if you understand my meaning). It just doesn't really have that "Aquarion" feel to it at the moment. I think it's the art style, they've changed the animation and character style. But never the less, the animation is still amazing :)

Yeah, but I wonder if the "word" issue (the bad guy) is somehow connected to Mikage/Touma?? I know he was locked away inside Fudo (suspected Apollonius). But I believe that was only a piece of Toumas soul. So I wonder if another part of Touma is involved. (As he was suppost to have *spoiler* died with Apollo, so did his soul become fractured/shattered)...Also where did Aquarion exactly originate from? When Apollonius lost his wings, did they become the machine Angel aka Aquarion (would explain why it's called a machine angel in the book of genesis). Anyway I'm getting off topic, I honestly can't see Yuno and Shin not getting involved as they would have the so called key/solution to the problem. And in the Ova It was clearly shown that Shin was remembering his past self (Jin). And Fudo made a few seconds appearance (so that explains where Fudo is)

Aquarion is not Apollonius's wings. His wings are on Touma's helmet. In the first season, the other shadow angels question his loyalty because of it.

There's no good explanation on where machine angel Aquarion comes from but in the first season, they dug deep into the earth 12,000 years ago to get something. This could the a special metal that was used with the assistance of Apollonius to make Aquarion or the vectors themselves. Neither is hinted at.

If you're asking "how could already made vectors be found in the Earth...", then I have a story for you:
The universe was borne from the light of genesis, which only Apollonius can release. Apollo shows this in the first season and Touma proclaims that one of the pilots of Aquarion at the time is his love Apollonius reincarnated. The universe includes the Earth so it is possible that at the time, he created the universe, he also created a tool for him, his lover, and his friends to defend themselves against the shadow angels that would come...

jfc that was just...wow where do I even start.
The designs are awful not to mention the characters are annoying as all hell. And using the Infinity Fist right off the bat like that? I was really hoping they wouldn't mess this one up so bad but from the looks of it already...yikes.

The whole kanji monsters are at least kind of...interesting?

Well, we have no epic opening this time. But unlike someone else above I'm not dropping it just because of the opening, that's just plain retarded. I'll see where this will go.

And for those asking if you need to see the other seasons first, well...yes, if you want to understand the first 25 minutes of the episode. The last 25 minutes on the other hand are on another level an don't need any previous knowledge. But who knows what may happening the next episodes. I would advise to watch the other 2 shows first.

I kind of know what you mean.
I don't believe it was a true infinity punch, but it had the same purpose as the infinity punch...
In the second season, EVOL... before Crea, the Rena look-alike, shows up at Neo-DEAVA, she sees the infinity punch circling the planet and says something like "you broke another seal, Fudo...". It's likely the the infinity punch and other similar skills have some kind of effect on the universe as a whole... That is to say... it would not be Aquarion without infinity punch skills!

I found that 50-minute Aquarion you talked about...
The first 25 minutes is the OVA "Sousei no Aquarion EVOL".
The second 25 minutes is the Aquarion Logos episode.
