The story of Aquarion Evol will take place 12,000 years after the first Aquarion television series at a city modeled after Hong Kong. A new cast of characters, piloting a new Aquarion robot, will fight enemies from another dimension. Kawamori has hinted that the characters might be reincarnations of Apollo, Silvia, and the other characters from the first series.
I can never get enough Aquarion. The music is still awesome, and the moves still have ridiculous sounding names ("flying love attack", really ?). Exactly what I expected, exactly what I enjoyed in Genesis of Aquarion.
I saw the eps and they were quite nice. Pretty animation, an interesting enough story premise with likable characters, some familiar motifs with enough twists to make things different this time around, and of course the music. I grinned when I heard the score quote bits from the previous series's score (as well as cute dialogue references to the revered status of the first series' first opening song). I liked the placement of the new theme song, and it's nice to hear Yoko Kanno and AKINO collaborate on that one again. I wonder how much the series will end up quoting music from the previous one, but I certainly won't mind as long as it helps set the mood and link the two series' storylines musically. I look forward to watching future eps; this series has potential to be as enjoyable as the previous series.
Aquarion was awesome incarnate.
I am watching this show right now.
BEST COMBINATION SEQUENCE EVER. I Squeed so hard.
also, imma say this now.
My personal theory on Kagura is I'm betting Apollyon split into two souls just like his love did. Amata got half, Kagura got half. Kagura will probably join the good guys eventually. or die and be reabsorbed into amata. Also, hoping the girl piloting a third of aquarion is a reincarnation of sylvia and so is purple hair girl. Alternate theory. given how they all resemble aquarion cast members..maybe the enemy cloned the original casts's genotypes >.>
