The childhood friend.

When they hired writers who didn't watch the original series.
>>
>>134898726
The fact that literally 80% of the episode don't affect the outcome at all. Literally. pointless. The cast, the plot, all that Non-existant, hollow character development, that bitchy fuccboi known as Ao who is Shinji re-incarnate but somehow worse, because he's not unique and has no depth, shall I go on?

>>134898726
Bones can't make sequels even when their lives at stake, and at this point everyone should know it and stop having hopes.

What went right then?

>>134898726
Turusu, 20+ wasted episodes that didn't move the plot and everything that did after Renton showed up was straight terrible.
The only good episode was the one when mama Eureka first arrived.

cute girls. das about it mane

The OST.

>>134899484
for the first series, yeah but AO's was a bit different.
>>
>>134899568
I like it better than E7, but maybe is just personal taste. Also is the thing I remember the most of the shitfest that was AO.

Believe it or not, just because you posted that, i went back and am listening to the OST right now and I have to agree, I do like alot of it. Though storywriter, days by flow, and sakura nigirils will always be my favorite from E7

Pretty much this >>134899412

Truth was a plot-device gone awry. How little he ended up having to do with the actual story. I'd also give owe it to that horrible plot-gun that altered reality. That was plain fucking stupid.

If we really want to get to the root of it, I'd say that Bones fucked themselves by not doing a proper sequel to Eureka 7, and giving us whatever the hell AO was supposed to be.

It wasn't satisfying in the least.

>>134899716
The OST was made by one dude from Supercar, the ones behind storywriter if I remember.

Posting more.

Man, I really wanted AO to be good, I really wanted to believe that Bones could pull it off. To this day I can't believe how they fucked it up so badly.

> get really hyped listening to Fly Away
> all of the episodes with Fly Away as ED are really depressing and dull

E7 was such a flawed but great show, never forget /a/'s platinum mad at AO.

Thread should end right there.

>>134899909
its just nearly incomprehensible how they built such a perfect framework, abd then said to themselves, "lets back it waaaay up, twist another universe in their, and then shit all over it with teen angst and cap it off with a forced nostalgia trip and re-destroying the thoughtless plot we just made up."
Obligatory

and what would a "shit on AO thread" be without the song that put the OST on the map.

>>134899903
Yeah. I would argue the plot was at least salvageable up until the quartz gun showed up. After that the plot became fucked beyond repair.

I can hear Gundam crying in the distance.
Also who the fuck invited Naru, get the fuck out

Like EVOL, I almost wish the OST was shit so I could hate them unconditionally.

>>134900169
Yep, I felt like they could have pieced together the series somehow. The quartz gun was completely unnecessary and made the series even more of a mess. They had enough plot-lines to deal with as is, and throwing that in to essentially retcon everything that happened before it in the series? What's the fucking point??

Well, in the original scheme of things it went wrong when they decided to slap the Eureka Seven brand name on an original anime to try and make some more sales.

After that it was a failure to utilize the brand name that got slapped on to the original anime.

Everything up to Eureka showing up is fine if it'd actually built up to something but it didn't.

Fixes were easy. Dropping Truth is a main one. Drop all the pointless extra pilot teams. None of them are necessary. Drop the Retcon Gun.

Instead of the Secrets just being magic universal antibodies, make them actually be the half the Scub Coral that jumped to the alternate universe, converting the major conflict into Scub Coral fighting among itself in an attempt to prevent the limit of questions.

The Scub of one universe trying to eradicate the Scub of another universe because they've propagated too much and because with time being fluid in the context of universes, the Secrets are Scub that have evolved and come to this conclusion of self governing to prevent their universe from collapsing, while the invading Scub have simply fully adopted the principal of shipping parts of itself off to be kept from reaching said Limit.

Also you don't have to bring every character back, but you could have easily had a Gekko Go 2 piloted by the 3 brats, Anemone, Dominic, while Renton, Holland's kid, and Anemone's kid pilot LFOs. This provides a strong connection to the original series.

The crux of the series is about finding a solution for the Scub problem, because if the Scub can't stop propagating and keeps just sending more of itself off into random dimensions then say that other universes will suffer from the limit of questions, meanwhile the alternative is unpalatable because the Secret Scub have to keep killing their own kind to maintain the Limit of Questions.

I liked punished Renton and the whole rescuing Eureka thing, but everything else was retarded.

Mom Eureka was so damn fine

>>134898726
When they decided it was an alternate universe. Those almost never go well, period, and are even worse in anime. Even time travel shenanigans would have been a better idea.

Also, the show became unsalvageable when Truth showed up. When you have a bad guy that retardedly OP, you have to have some really retarded stuff happen to be able to beat him. Hell, even the retcon gun would have been OK (at least in concept) without the Truth angle to it.
