  • Editorial Reviews

    The electrifying successor to the mecha epic Eureka Seven propels you through intense, eye-popping action in the sky, sea, and space once battle at a time.

    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.

    The first series was a beautiful love story about a boy maturing into a young man with an anti-war message of tolerance and understanding wrapped in an interesting and unique sci-fi world with an ending we all wish all anime had.

    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.

    I thought the original series Eureka Seven was a great series with many memorable characters and a great story. Then I watched Eureka Seven: AO. It really didn't have the same heart and soul of the original series, it felt to me that it may have been better off sold as an alternate to the original series. Where I felt for Renton, Eureka, Holland, Talho and the rest of the GekkoState, in the AO series I felt no real attachment to any of the characters. I gave it a chance though and my hope went up when the *spoiler alert* scub coral in orbit broke apart to reveal the Gekko and second Nirvash but I was let down from there.
    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.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Wrecking the original like it didn't even do it!!! October 7, 2013
    By Jim
    Format:Blu-ray
    Eureka Seven AO sabotages the very essence of its predecessor in just about every way possible. This story did not start badly as in the very beginning the viewer is treated to interesting (albeit cliché) characters presented in a very beautifully rendered environment. Then the story began to reveal itself and that is when you realize that this series never really had a chance.

    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.

    If you're going for the Limited Edition one, which actually costs less, don't buy this version! The other one on here is also a Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Pack and contains more. Don't be deceived like I was!

    3.0 out of 5 stars Rushed sequel to one of the best animes July 31, 2013
    Format:Blu-ray
    Eureka Seven AO was a surprise to me when I first heard BONES was making it. My anticipation for a sequel to one of my all time favorite anime's was nigh unbearable.

    The series starts out very strong, with excellent animation, fluid action, and a superb OST that really pulls you into every scene. I felt BONES was on course for another winner. However, things start to feel rushed halfway through and the story that had a strong start became convoluted and nonsensical.

    Overall, if you are a fan of the original series keep your expectations low, and go in knowing you are just watching for an add-on to the original Eureka Seven.
    For new viewers that haven't seen the original series, I urge you to find a way to watch it before viewing this sequel.

    The OST alone could have pushed me to finish the series if I didn't already love the Eureka Seven series enough finish watching this.

    Reasons to Watch:

    - Excellent Animation
    - An OST that keeps you engaged
    - Exciting action sequences
    - (BONUS) If you've seen the original series, keep your eyes out for some Easter eggs!

    Reasons to Skip:

    - Story becomes rather disengaging the further in to the series you get
    - If you haven't seen the original Eureka Seven already, skip this series until then.

    2.0 out of 5 stars A Disappointing Sequel to an Excellent Series August 1, 2013
    Format:Blu-ray
    Overall I was pretty disappointed with E7:AO. It lacked the heart and direction of the original series. The original score was adequate, but in no way lived up to Naoki Sato's sublime arrangements for Psalm of Planets or Good Night, Sleep Tight Young Lovers. The action is well laid out and exciting. While I really didn't like the story at all, there were some lovely movements between Ao and Eureka, but generally the story felt lacking to me, as if it were written by someone who didn't really understand the original series. They made some bizarre voice actor choices as well.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Eureka Seven comes back, and it's beautiful as ever. December 1, 2013
    Format:Blu-ray
    This was just beautiful I am a huge fan of the original series, and to see it come back was just the greatest thing. This is just like it says on the box, "a worthy successor to Eureka Seven!" It brings back the fresh feeling and the good times that the original had plus more. The story is laid out nicely, the characters are memorable and fleshed out nicely, the animation is just gorgeous and combined with its beautiful soundtrack it makes for a crazy piece of eye candy.

    If you have seen Eureka Seven, this is a must watch! Just make sure to pay close attention, it likes to throw you for loops and spins with its story. But if you keep track it all adds up, and you'll get dashed easter eggs. If you haven't seen the first series this might be a pass until you start Eureka Seven.

    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
