The year is 2025. Earth is engulfed in the crossfire between massive warring alien life forms that leave annihilation in their wake. While searching for clues about his past, Ao is caught in an attack and forced to fly a giant humanoid fighter craft to save himself and his island. Fragments of the teenager s origin come to light when a hostile shape-shifter seeking revenge on Ao s missing mother who vanished two years after his birth targets him instead. Consumed with learning how his machine of war is connected to his mother and the monster that now pursues him, the young pilot will fly full throttle into combat zones without hesitation.

This series has the interesting sci-fi bit and it has a bit of romance but it's missing out on any deeper meaning. It's an adventure, a fun one, but not as fun and not really memorable like the first series. And it will confuse the hell out of you most of the time. The end doesn't even answer all of the questions.
The problems probably stem from the fact that Dai Sato (the brains behind the first series) wasn't attached to the project and that there were problems with the production staff mid series.
Don't get me wrong, AO would have been a good series stand alone or as an alternate universe take (ala J.J. Abrams Star Trek 2009) but with the Eureka Seven tag next to it, the viewer is going to be expecting certain things that just weren't there in the sequel.
Much like the characters, the story is never entirely consistent, and eventually settles on a bizarre path that wrecks the premise of the original series all together and will leave any true fan bitter and feeling somewhat betrayed by the way this series was handled. The animation and action sequences are, for the most part, good, so I could not tank the score to one star in good conscience.
If you enjoyed Psalms of Planets: Eureka Seven, then do yourself a huge favor and don't bother watching this, much less buying it. If you have not seen the original series, then you would do well to see it as it is, in my humble opinion, one of the greatest animated works of all time. Then you should do whatever you can to avoid seeing this series.
Again Studio Bones proves they can do no wrong

A much better storyline than Eureka 7. AO is a young boy that has the gift of piloting Nirvash, a mech. Similar to Renton from Eureka 7 with one huge difference. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Nathan

I really loved the first half of the series! I can see why people rag on the show, but I feel like they blow everything said way out of proportion. Read morePublished on September 30, 2013 by Brandt Niles

|Stoked, but missing the original.||
Unfortunately, unless funimation (or another company for that matter) licenses the original, it probably will not be released; this is because Bandai Entertainment held the rights to the original and they discontinued distributing here. And, as far as I know, no other company has rescued the... Read More
