Eureka Seven Sequel Trailer


"Eureka Seven", one of my favorite anime TV shows of all time, is getting a sequel.  And I'm really happy about that.  Its called "Eureka Seven: Astral Ocean" or "AO" for short.  Here's a trailer for you lovelies:

So, unlike "Eureka Seven: Pocket Full of Rainbows" or whatever that godawful cheap cash-in of a movie was called, "Eureka Seven: AO" is using whole new animation with whole new characters to make a whole new story.  Its set in the near-future in Okinawa, where a kid that looks exactly like Renton Thurston meets the Nirvash and apparently goes on giant robot adventures.  So even though its a "sequel", its set well before the events of "Eureka Seven: Original Flavor" which was set in the deep future when Earth doesn't even look like Earth anymore.  I'm not sure how that works.  The kid, whose name is also "Ao", has teal hair in the manga, making him look like Eureka and Renton's child.  But in the anime, its brown.  I don't understand how that works.

"Eureka Seven: AO" is airing in Japan in April, so I'll be watching that as soon as it gets subbed and posted on the Internet.  Then we'll find out if Studio BONES can make lightning strike twice with this show.  I have my doubts, but I'm still stupidly excited.  See you then!
