These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Ponder this: The Super Robot Wars series is known for taking some of the most contestedsequels and fixing them to be more enjoyable. The first Super Robot Wars Z game included the original series. The sequel, Super Robot Wars Z2, contained Eureka Seven's not-quite-a-Compilation Movie. It seems only natural that AO would be included in Super Robot Wars Z3, right? Well it's not.
Noah, the cute Team Pet, is seen as a bro to most of the community, especially due to his never changing expression and his actions, like freeing Ao from capture in Episode 3. Most fans have compared him to Gulliver from the first series.
The random Okinawan man who takes Ao around in Episode 4 is also seen as a true bro.
Fanon: Many fans have come up with epilogues (such as the "delusions" threads in /a/ of 4chan) that diverge from the main plot at various points, including one where Ao arrives in a future where everybody still remembers him, Everybody Lives (including Ao's sister), and Ao hooks up with Fleur.
"Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Also a heartwarming one. The revelation that Eureka can bear human children was considered by many to be one of the more heartwarming moments of the original series and a confirmation that humans can co-exist with Coralians. And then the final episode aired, which revealed that the high amount of trapar in the original series' universe is fatal to Human-Coralian hybrids. This made the scene showing Renton and Eureka burying their infant daughter unbelievably worse.
Genius Bonus: The lightning-generating Secret in Episode 8 was last spotted in Philadelphia in 1752, the same year Franklin conducted his famous "catch lightning with a kite" test.
Growing the Beard: Episode 12 seemed to be this while the series was airing; it looked like the show was taking a bold new direction that would bring it closer to the original series. The mixed reaction to many of the episodes that followed it indicate that whatever beard it had was quickly shaved off.
Memetic Mutation: Dewey was right.source Due to several revelations and themes which only seem to reaffirm the antagonist from the original series' belief that Humanity and the scub coral really cannot co-exist.
A picture of Eureka and Renton crying next to an Easter Island head (due to hatred of how Ao's sister died) has also proven popular.
Narm: Happens more frequently as the series progressed. Few people agree just how much of it there was, but many agree that not only is Truth the biggest contributor to it, but he IS the Narm.
Paranoia Fuel: As was shown with Team Goldilocks, the Quartz Gun has the power to change history, but nobody other than Ao would ever be aware of the effects, meaning one of your closest friends may suddenly stop existing and you would never notice or vice versa.
The Scrappy: Truth is almost universally disliked among fans, mainly due to being introduced completely out of the blue, having overpowered abilities including energy projection, flight, and shapeshifting in a series that has thus far avoided having such characters, messing with Ao's head, taking and manipulating Naru, and randomly slaughtering people.
Naru is quickly falling into this category as well, especially after her Face-Heel Turn when she joins Truth and becomes one of his collaborators.
Take That, Scrappy!: Episode 23 seems solely dedicated to this. Naru gets her comeuppance for all the crap she's pulled. It even turns the end of the previous episode on its ear just to make sure you have basically no sympathy for her. Truth, meanwhile, erases himself from existence.
The common fan reaction to the Red Herrings of TheEND and Elena. Especially the latter, due to all the build up, and hints that she was Ao's sister. It smacks of Writer Cop Out.
Strawman Has a Point: The series proved that Dewey Novak was right about humans and Scub Coral being incapable of coexisting, seeing as how it was the Scub Corals' fault humanity was getting screwed over.
They Just Didn't Care: Many fans felt this way about the the direction the series took, pointing out how the themes stressed in AO were wildly different if not outright contradictory with the themes set forth in the first series.
They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Many potentially good plot points such as whether Elena was from the original E7 universe or not, the presence of theEND, the identity and fate of Ao's sister, and many more were either ignored or turned out to be Red Herrings. In fact, you could say that they Wasted a Perfectly Good Sequel.
