I... liked second OP of Aquarion more than first. First one was an ear worm and I liked it a lot, but I think second OP was even better.

Evol OP is good, too.

Even as a Mikono fan and even if Amata and do end up together, I hope for a little more time for the relationship to mature, it's more fun to watch and feels more convincing than just 'you're my lover reincarnated.'

Relax, we're only on the fourth episode. Besides that's probably what Kagura and the black wedding Cayenne foresaw are for

Do I sound mad intense about it? I guess I'm a little passionate about this show. Eh, 20 episodes is a long time, so far they've been good with the execution, but you always worry a bit about them dropping the ball.

Aquarion OP1 showed off Akino's voice really nicely, she's got some vocal talent.

No, no. They are for pairing her off with Kagura, while Zessica is paired off with Amata.

Seriously, though, the foreshadowing is so thick you could knock someone unconscious with it. And as much as I'd like to say that its obvious who will end with whom and that I'll calmly pick them to avoid being disappointed, I'm still going to hold out hope against all hope (and literary intuition) and root for Zessica. Damn it, if they didn't want her to be the main love interest then they should have made her so adorable.

Zessica's pretty interesting. Adventurous and genki, including sexually, but surprisingly professional in the cockpit (very much unlike Sylvia).

I wonder if they're going to make Mikono's shy and selfless behaviour a problem to team Vega, and eventually leading her to switch sides with team Altea, while showing Amata's growing in a more selfconfident hero. And I'm wondering if Zessica can be a spy from Altea, too, pulling a reverse heel face turn with her and making her the official and ultimate love interest for Amata.

Ah... I like these series so much. I wish I saw Aquarion before. It's made of tropes and It doesn't take itself seriously. And that's fun.

I guess I can't hide I like Zessica, can I? But even if I said that about Mikono, I like her too. It's just that I think it would be interesting if she ends in Altea and stays over there more than 1 or 2 episodes. I mean:

I like Mikono too, it's a shame she got screwed over most of her life because of her brother's attitude but at least that drama is over so she can return to her adorable self.

I don't mind an Sora/Mikono ending... but frankly, I'm looking forward towards seeing something substantial and two-way happen between Kagura and Mikono. Not necessarily because I prefer Zessica, but there is something very classical and time-tested about the usual shoujo-story 'abusive asshole and large-hearted, meek and kind girl."

I would lol if Cayenne's vision of Sad Mikono in Wedding and Miko-bones is actually foreshadowing to... say, something like

Oh of course! Why am I so slow?

Yeah I'm completely with you. As unlikely as it is, I'm still rooting for an Amata x Zessica pairing. Mikono can go marry Kagura for all I care; I, for one, wouldn't go after her

But...but...I liked her when she's adorably useless!

Asides from that, IMO GENESIS OP1>EVOL OP1>GENESIS OP2. I got hyped everytime I hear OP1 when I was playing SRW

And I'm putting EVOL's ED right next to OP1 there, honestly can't wait for the full version.

Um, has anyone besides me made the connection between the name "Amata Sora" and "Amaterasu"?

Same as com_gwp, if I've never played SRW Z, I probably won't hear Sousei no Aquarion (the song) until now, or even get excited about EVOL

I like both Sousei no Aquarion and Go Tight!, Kimi no Shinwa is great too. Can't really pick which one my favorite but since it's newer I listen to Kimi no Shinwa more lately :3
I hope they'll make the main seiyuus cover the songs like they did with the pachinko. Not as awesome as AKINO and bless4, but it's still good



Btw has anyone heard the "Onii-sama to Issho" version of Sousei no Aquarion? I read it was sung by AKINO and AKASHI (oldest brother of bless4) but I've never found the video or song of it :\


And more Mikono & Zessica fan arts...

Futhermore, the different scenes from the op seem to indicate that we will have a triangle with Mikono who can't choose (until the end) bewteen Amata and Kagura. It's just the exact same thing that in Macross Frontier but this time for the girl (Mikano) and not for the guy (Alto in MF).

Of course, right now, it's just assumptions but I strongly believe that's what will happen later. We can even suppose that Kagura will be able to steal Mikono from them and then Mikono will start to fall in love with Kagura.

But hey, I'm not that fond of Mikono. I like Zessica much more that's why I would love a pairing with her and Amata. But my guess is that she will end up with Cayenne. And I don't know why but I have the feeling that Cayenne will have the same fate that Michael (or something like that) in MF


This serie has just the same vibe that Macross Frontier for me
More likely to be Kagura lusting after mikono for the whole series with her unable to return those feelings while he's being very pushy. Pretty sure at some point Mikono will be taken and while she might start to understand kagura she'll be happy and run straight back to Amata when she sees he's come for her.

Zessica will likely be no different than Shigure from kenichi; a fan favorite but no real chance. I'd say she's more likely to hook up with Cayenne than she is to hook up with Amata.
