If AO has taught me anything is that the fanbase seem to complain about alot of pointless crap and seem to remember E7 through rose tinted glasses.

Oh god this episode.
You can proceed, Bones.
You can proceed.
...For now.

I'm in conflicted feelings about some things, but this is quite acceptable. Also

I am confused by this Eureka that appeared in Ep 13 @_@

She someone from the past before Ao was born? OR she from an alternate timeline?

Then how do we explain why Eureka appeared with Nirvash suddenly in the sky?

*confused*

You can replace E7 with almost any mecha anime title and still have it hold true sadly.

My main issue was just not being able to get into the cast or world (something I had no problem with with the original) at all no matter how hard I tried. For me that was a pretty big deal, but lately things are getting a lot more interesting so I just hope it holds up.

That's fair. I mean we don't have nearly the amount of episodes this time around though one can argue that most shows in this length can do just that, so maybe the cast in AO are just aren't that interesting in the long run, they're certainly getting there especially Elena but we'll see.

Also, Brave Blue is actually next week.

And yeah, I am disappoint. A whole week. Argh.

Exactly. And top of not being able to get into the cast, I'm treated to nudity of varying degrees as a trade-off for more time with character depth or just more time seeing a character be themselves. Gets frustrating after a while.

What has to be my favorite part of this episode, When Ao asks what his dad was like.

E: "he acted childish, was a crybaby and wasn't really good for anything"
A: "Did you like him?"
E: (shakes head) "I loved him. I loved every part of him.

There's a difference between true time travel (moving up and down the timeline of a single world line) and quantum parallel travel to Another World that is at a different time compared to the traveller's frame of reference.

This is where all our confusion comes from. We've no idea what theory is AO using, beyond hints from E7 that this is probably the Another World theory.

The reason why E7 had more epic battles than E7:Ao is due to the fact that in E7 the gecko is a rebel group while Gen Blue is a official, state recognized organization. Gen Blue can't really fight against any nation but the Gecko did fight against a massive military.

Poor Renton, he'll never live that down. Maybe when he gets a chance to appear in person he can be a badass.

Or rather, there was much more involvement in E7 battles.
For many reasons, how the characters were presented, what was implied to be at stake and so on and so forth.
Like... in Eva NERV is an organization, but aren't the fights there quite "epic"?
AO fails to make you invest in the warring sides and that leads to the battles themselves not being particularly interesting. Not to mention that situations in E7 were all different, in AO it has almost Power Rangers-like quality. Fight non-descript monster each episode on the schedule with vague stakes, rinse, repeat.

I thought that was endearing. Besides... Renton was badass plenty of times on screen.

Something strikes me as odd about what this episode means for the next story arc (13 episodes):
