i actually like her more like this, with the imperfect body... before she seemed too plastic and unrealistic, kind of like an android. now she feels more human. "I've changed" she says.... i think shes right... i like her char more like this...

anywho... rugged spiky short hair ftw!

I think the sky-fish represent freedom and flight. They tend to turn up during those 'wow' moments to reiterate one of the reasons why Gekkostate is independant...

I really like the new OP. My first thoughts were 'why does it include Amazing Grace' in the opening bars ('Amazing grace, how sweet the sound'). Amazing Grace is an old hym about deliverance and freedom. Two prominent themes in Eureka 7. More info on Amazing Grace here.

There's quite a few portentous shots in the new OP to whet the appetite, not least...

Spoiler:


I don't the ending much, and the static images are let down and very confusing - are they about Dominic?

Okay, on to Ep.40...

The ending song is about suffering of children during the war.

Can't say enough about how I love the new opening and ending, compared to the previous bunch. It's just awesome...awesome...awesome. Both in sound and visuals.

The episode itself rocked too...

Spoiler for episode 40:


There were also some bits with Anemone, Dominic/Dewey and Talho/Eureka and Eureka/Tiptree/Norb/Holland/Renton, but they were beside the point. Well, maybe Norb was as cheeky as ever. 8)

Just great stuff! Finally, after so many crap fillers we are moving back to the heart of the matter. Also, the filler team exited stage left and let the REAL animators back, thank you very much. The episode looked great in all aspects, so I can stop gushing already, you got the point. 8)))

Also, check this out...

Spoiler:


Does this remind you of someone? Specifically... don't Eureka and Renton somehow remind you of Dianne and Adrock?

This is from the OP4, by the way. 8)

I totally agree, only 10 episodes remaing hopefully BONES will make each one count.

Yeah, Renton really looks like Adrock there. For some reason I really like this image, would make a great poster.

I also caught the 'Navigation ray=out' recap special, which I missed first time round. I hadn't noticed, till the recap showed it shot-for-shot, that ep 26 mimicked ep 1 with the role reversals of Eureka and Renton. That was damn cool...

Yeah, that was an awesome way to wrap up that part of the series.

Actually, episode 1 and 26 were directed by the same guy, Masayuki Miyaji (who is also the assistant to the Eureka head honcho, Tomoki Kyoda), so it's no wonder that the storyboarding will be the same, or similar. The animation director for both episodes was also the same.

Man, I just saw ep40. Interesting episode, although the highlight is definitely the new opening.

Apart from the little Amazing Grace part, which I thought was kinda bizzare, the whole thing is totally awesome. And the visuals definitely felt like it's heading into the grand finale...much better than the OP3 clip (which has some terrible character distortion

Love the new hair. Finally, no more Gaara hairstyle.

Oh man oh man. Only 10 more episodes. This is sooooooo gonna totally kick butt. I just can't wait. I haven't felt so excited about an anime series in a while. (I only started watching last Monday....raced through 40 episodes in 6 days, or more like 39 eps in 5 days)

I think, I'm gonna go buy the Nirvash plastic model....



Oh, I can't say how much I love ep26 either. But to me, that was many days ago already, hehe...still a lovely episode.
I got my hands on OST1...so now I can blast all my favorite tracks....but sometimes it's kinda hard to remember and say, "Oh, this music is from that scene"....oh well.

Cool, Masayuki Miyaji also storyboard eps 11 and 13, both great episodes.

15? I'd like to believe she's late 13 or 14 years old... so that she still has space to grow >_>

And finally! I am catching up to the series!! Z0MG!

...Actually, I haven't watched past 30 yet, but I've made progress - I started downloading the raws early today and now I've just got to wait for ep 34 to finish. Also listening to the full OP3 music... it's actually nicer than I thought at first hand. Ta-i-yo-u nooo, mannaka e~ I wonder what this new OP will be like, the little I saw of it seemed quite interesting.

Can't help being spoiled though - actually I don't know if I"d have made myself download the rest if it wasn't for reading interesting tidbits like
Spoiler:
(I still don't like her hairstyle.) All the comments on Renton being more mature are also intriguing...
And I do actually want to watch that episode storyboarded by the VFX director who roxors your boxors (if you like all the "flying circus" missile scenes in the OPs so far.)
Then again there's also the matter of the ANN encyclopedia page to be updated... 10 episodes orz Guess I better get cracking...hope I can get to the new OP/ED credits soon. No actually I think I'll just jump there first.

I never expected myself to stick onto the series this long... perhaps even though I'm not that big a fan of it (although I still loev episode 26!!), I still have some sort of interest... I do want to know what's going to happen in the end. Okay, I admit, the eye candy is great too.

I think we should discern between physical age and mental age.

1) Biologically, she may not be much older than several years. We already know (from the 1st OP), that she was already "born" as a semi-adult form. We don't know how much time has passed, but judging from some of the flashback scenes with you-know-who, it shouldn't have been more that several years.

2) Mental age. Since she is paired with Renton, we can assume that she is mentally the same age as him. Renton is 14.

Now, as for the question of "neverchanging look".

I think we can also assume the same applies for Anemone, she being Eureka's twin or counter-part. When Dewey was released from his incarceration that he did not mention how or if Anemone had grown or aged - three years being a long time in physical development for a girl of her perceived years.

Ether way you slice it, I'm just glad Aperiance 3 won't screw up Renton.
