The Double TIBITY Look at E7: AO Part 1!

Andrain
Welcome to a Special TIBYBI! I’m Andrain, and today we’re joined with us by the venerable Caijin Samurai, How’s it going?

Samurai
Not complaining at all! Nice to be here. Today we’re doing something special, aren’t we?

Andrain
That we are, Today we’re going to look at the sequel to one of Studio BONES’ most beloved masterpieces, Psalm of the Planets: Eureka 7.

Samurai
Ah yes. Eureka Seven: AO. I’ve been looking forward to this one for a while now and because of other anime commitments, and distractions…(Namely Mysterious Girlfriend X) I have, to date, not seen it.
A mistake I shall correct TODAY!

Andrain
Outstanding! but first we ought to review. Ahem Spoilers Ahead don’t worry I’ll white it out or something (Just Highlight… see what I do here?)

Andrain
    So, the Ending to Eureka 7 most of us thought it was confusing as all heck right?

Samurai
    Agreed. It made sense on one level, but on another level, I didn’t understand one dawg-gone thing that happened.

Andrain
    Now upon a little research most people agree it was a happy ending, The Scub Coral left Earth, Renton and Eureka were left together and it had the makings of a very good ending right?

Samurai
    One of the best, actually.

Samurai
    It was one for the ages. And it’s an ending that I will forever remember for it’s TV broadcast on Adult Swim..

Andrain
    Right right, so… Renton and Eureka together forever though admittedly lost for a while. The Geccostate probably doing something awesome somewhere, no Antibody Coreillians killing everyone, sound about right?

Samurai
    As right as rain. Grandpa got the kids whom were adopted into the Thurston family.

Andrain
Well then with that all clear let’s get started

Samurai
Right-o! Okay, so in the opening dialogue, we get our first reference…somewhat…to Eureka. She’s only referred to as “The girl with the turquoise hair”.

Andrain
Only possible person, which is odd in itself.

Samurai
I have a feeling we’re going to be using that word a lot.

Andrain
Well think about it, sure Eureka is a big deal but she needs Renton too

Samurai
Indeed. Now, jump cut and we get our first look at the boy from the posters.

Samurai
Dark hair, pink eyes….and his own whip!

Andrain
Indeed… Looks like Renton with Eureka’s eyes… pretty clear ‘eh?
Wait you didn’t notice something
Bad Samurai!
As we learned in Eureka 7 the Scub Coral… probably went bye bye right? especially since they’ve got water all over the place.

Samurai
Could be…but you expect me to remember that from a series that I haven’t seen in what has to be 4-5 years?

Andrain
Well gezz do your research my point is… Why’s is there Trapar?

Samurai
Good question. I can only imagine what they’ll come up with.

Andrain
So in case you guys aren’t familiar with Japan… this is Iwajima island… you all heard of that right?

Samurai
Of course. My history may be rusty, but it is intact.

Andrain

Excellent moving on, Apparently our main character has  driver’s License… and who is this? Oh ho ho… our man has a girl

Samurai
And a pretty girl at that.
But before I forget…what is the name of this episode?

Andrain
Born Slippy!
A reference to something, all I’m coming up with Slippy Toad.

Samurai
But in the corner it says “Deep blue”.

Andrain
Ah so it does

Andrain
Episode one is entitled ‘Deep Blue’ The ocean probably.

Samurai
Don’t tell me this is gonna be like Evangelion with the two titles per episode! I hated that!

Andrain
It can’t be helped, now let’s see here The young lady has a weak body poor thing…

Samurai
Yeah, it sucks. But she also has another condition–Back Seat Driver Syndrome.

Andrain
Childhood friends have that right
But wait… both his parents are gone?

Samurai
Yeah. I was getting ready to say…it looks like she hit a nerve with his comment about not having friends or family–SLOTH!!!

Andrain
Our mascot animal actually exists this time nice… but I don’t think you’re appreciating the significance of this.

Samurai
Sorry, but I love those things!

Andrain
Yare Yare…

Samurai
Now we got some baddies here…flying Trapar cars?

Andrain
I wouldn’t call them bad guys… Holland fit that same category…
wait IFO… pay attention! There’s IFOs still
From what we remember there was a grand total of TWO (Type-ZERO, and Type-THEEND)

Samurai
How convenient that he just so happen to trip…

Andrain
.. gezz oh well enjoy it through the first time I guess…
But just a little
Nice accessory

Samurai
Yeah. Nice little bracelet. Got the glowing action of mystery going.

Andrain
In… Trapa…. oh… I do believe it’s Summertime!

Samurai
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_PDns23RWY
Got it covered.

Andrain
That does look kind of bad if pillars of light mean anything to this series… Do we get the Seven Swell already?

Samurai
No way, not this early.
…crazier things have happened though.

Andrain
A Scub Burst… and oh here comes the happenings!

Andrain
Scramble? There’s a para military force?! Do I smell main characters?!

Samurai
Could be! Only time will tell. And you got to admire Ao’s reflexes. Dives forward before she hits the ground!

Andrain
Yeah mad skills there
now comes conspiracies and excitement… heh

Samurai
And the appearance of a Scub Coral…
Let the fun begin.

Andrain
He’s a gloomy kid isn’t he?

Samurai
And that moment when Ao looked back at Naru in the drivers seat of that car, there was no doubt in my mind…that is Renton and Eureka’s son.
And man…I love that freaking sloth!

Andrain
I definitive like Naru though. the take charge type, Mother would approve.

Samurai
Geeze, Ao…don’t use your cell while driving!

Samurai
And we get an idea on his living environment…

Andrain
mmhmm

Samurai
Already we can kind of see how his life is a little like Renton’s was at the beginning of the original series.

Andrain
Just a little, at least he has a support base but he’s moody…

Samurai
And DUN-DUN-DUN!!! The bracelet is gone!

Andrain
Those Japs really think it’s necessary, wonder why

Samurai
And we get a little phone call here…and ANOTHER reference to Eureka!

Andrain
No really? making sure the point is clear.

Samurai
And he plans on giving her the mysterious glowing bracelet he JUST found and have NO idea about to his little girlie?

Andrain
It’s a pretty cute accessory, always good to treat your girl right

Samruai
By giving her mysteriously glowing jewelry found on the beach?

Andrain
Watches were made with Uranium in them you know.

Samurai
I know, I know. Didn’t do us much good then, did it?

Andrain
Anime changes stuff

Samurai
And we’re in space!

Andrain
Flying Assault Landing ship: Triton… Win

Samurai
Indeed. The cockpit kinda reminds me of the Gecko.
…why am I getting an Evangelion vibe all of a sudden?

Andrain
Because the party is about to begin.

Samurai
::looks to camera:: Remember kids! Don’t take rides from strangers! And that’s why!

Andrain
Have to add the Drama…

Samurai
WOW! And there she is.

Andrain
THERE WE GO
need any more confirmation?

Samurai
I would ask for a Letter of Certification, but be that as it may…

Samurai
When in doubt…BITE!

Andrain
We’ve got a key to awaken and LFO related to Eureka Thruston… Huhh…. Draw the lines?

Samurai
No freaking clue.
This end song is really cool…as are the visuals.

Well that was part one stay tuned for Part 2 if I can manage to regain my Sanity!!!
