First Episode Review for: Eureka Seven AO
Summary : Part of the ongoing Eureka Seven Mecha series, unsurprising an accident happens with a stolen Mecha near a young boy. (who somehow survives instead being brained by chunks of flying concrete)
Animation : Excellent quality throughout with good shading and attention to detail in the backgrounds, top mark especially on the electric effects (an often overlooked feature)
Plot Potential: This initially triggered my “oh no not again!” when the “accident” happened to the teenage kid, hopping they can do something fresh with it.
Characters: All stock so far, not a single original characters (although the sheer cowardice of the people who caused the accident was impressive), but given the obvious effort they have put into it I will give them time
Music: Faily strong dramatic music, heavy on the piano and sonic style effects.
Reminds me of: Eureka Seven
Overall: I’m not a huge Mecha fan, as they tend to struggle with new plot lines, but the visuals of this anime alone make it worth seeing.
