Episode 8

Enjoyable episode, but extremely cheap. It's an outsourced episode and an obvious one at that. Poor character art and low quality character animation throughout. But the interactions between Ao and Fleur were pretty solid. One thing I really like about this show is how the kids really do behave like kids.

There isn't really that much to talk about other than the character revelations (which really just proves that all mecha pilots have daddy issues :P), but I like how they use stock missions to expand the world. It's nice to see a show that talks about fighting threats internationally to actually travel to very different parts of the world. It's also a nice contrast against the first four episodes, where the series looked like it might really take place all around Okinawa.

Probably the cheapest episode of the series so far, but I got a few laughs out of it and a nice explosion at the end. Hopefully we don't get too many of these episodes production-wise though. :P

We've seen him take down several KLF barehanded while Truth have only took down one IFO. You've also seem to miss the point of the comparison entirely

You are so biased it hurts A top of misusing a term you're citing a character we've barely even scratched the surface of one? And if you wanna play semantics if Truth is so omnipotent why can't he get what he want? Why does he need the help of a little girl?

Bi......I don't have to say it, it's just funny to see you try so hard. That said whether you feel attached to the characters at this point is really your concern and not the show itself, but hey based on your logic KSE7 had all it's character development and plot covered in 8 episodes

Wow, this episode raised a good number of Fleur flags for Ao there. Wasn't quite expecting that. (we all know Naru is the one who's going to win out though )

Yeah didn't expect Fleur and Ao to get that close through this episode. If it had any use it was in building their friendship up. At least while Naru is missing should be interesting to see how close they might end up getting.

My only word for episode 8 is silly.

But we did learn some new things:

- Secrets have been around for awhile. As early as 18th century? Either they were extremely infrequent and passive secrets or mankind had really large cannon balls to counter them.
- Fleur is the President's daughter. She hates him. The teen angst in this episode is one of the reasons I named the episode silly. So trite.
- "America the bad-guy" theme continues. I don't care, it's not like the U.S. media doesn't spin and make other countries the bud of jokes, but it really feels out of place in an Eureka 7 sequel. Almost like they've got a quota to fulfill.
- I was really anticipating Ao and Fleur to be pissed at the faked filming, like "I can't believe you toyed with our emotions and made joke of such horror!", especially after all the teen angst, but no.. it was all gags.
- Fancy HDTV in the run-down pub. lol.

I've been delaying watching this, up till now. It doesn't feel like the old Eureka7 series at all, which I enjoyed more.

And now we're going by Gmonster-of-the-week stuff?

Well I'm assuming its because he's never been around (far as we know). Wouldn't be surprised for him disliking a father who left his mother to raise him alone in such a discriminating environment.

Does Ao even know who his father is?

Fleur and Ao is a good pairing for me. I will root for them but the damn anime industry is showing NaruxAo already. I will fight the fate! I hate Naru and last ntr episode makes her one of the top most hated heroine/girl for me. Heck the first time I saw her. I know I won't like her

Elena's fantasy is wild. I can't comprehend her thought patter but I like her.

The current nirvash doesn't have that rainbow or colored aura thing doesn't it?

She doesn't have one cause she's not a real character. Don't be fooled by appearances.

Eureka would talk about Nirvash it isn't a stretch she would tell Ao about his wonderful father.

In Ao's perspective if he is so wonderful "Where is he?!".

If that is so it could mean Eureka told young Ao about his siblings, grandpa, great grandpa, and Gecko Skate... If he can remember as he was two years old.


Going by the previous notations of Scub bursts and Secrets/G-Monsters appearances Scub Corals started appearing in the 20th century but Secrets/G-Monsters have been around a lot longer than they.

This furthers the theory Secrets are native or earlier aliens in this universe and they view Scub Coral as intruders/invaders. Setting out to destroy them as they appear.


Oh considering the Gattai joke I'm more of the opinion its an Aquarion reference.

Lol, you know what this episode reminds me of? Both of You, Dance Like You Want to Win!/Moment and Heart Together Not only do you have synchronized attacks against the Secret, but they were also walking in unison and were mirror images of each other in GHQ. Only difference, it was all backwards in that their syncronization started with the battle, rather than ends with it. XD

Which doesn't bode well for me, as that episode was the single biggest reason why I ship AsukaXShinji (barring dream sequence of course). Dammit, Fleur, why must you be so adorable? Can't bear to hate you.

I hate to say it, but I told you so. No coincidence that Fleur was shown one of the main sympathizers a couple episodes ago, and the only one shown to welcome Ao into his new home. This episode is only the natural progression from that.

Now if it'll go further than that is the question, as it's equally possible for Fleur and Ao to be interested with each other as them just being the best buddies of the show. I mean, Bones has done it before (like say, Xam'd), so I wouldn't put it past them.

Nope, there lies the mystery.

Closest thing would be Coralian antibodies. But those look organic. Secrets/G-Monsters are more like Strike Witches Neuroi. More machine like...

I should have known Ao would have daddy issues. It seems you can't be a proper mecha anime protagonist otherwise

Fleur's grudge against her father is very unfair. How can she blame him for saving her? He was faced with an impossible choice, and he did what I believe any father would have done. It would have been even more awful for her mother if she had survived by taking her daughter's life. He did the right choice, or rather, the only one he could make.

It looks like Generation Bleu is not that bad after all. Color me surprised. I didn't think they'd go out of their way to fool America in order to be allowed to intervene.

With all the thing the OP show. I doubt that. Even if I want to deny it. They are like catering NaruxXxAo on the OP. And that's why I kinda hate the first girl status in anime.

Anger isn't rational and I'm sure Fleur had to deal with survivor's guilt since her living meant another had to die.
