I was disappointed, not near the same standard as Eureka Seven for me.
1 October 2013 | by jakeperks38See all my reviews

Eureka Seven....that was a brilliant series, so i couldn't wait to see the sequel when I heard that there was one! Despite what i'd heard of some fans not liking the sequel, I thought i'd chance it and hope that they were wrong, for me they were not. I know why.

=========S==P==O==I==L==E==R======A==L==E==R==T=============

In my opinion the thing that I really loved about Eureka Seven despite the great story, was the characters, that really made it all for me! So I was quite disappointed when I found out that none of the GekkoState crew were in the sequel. Eureka herself was only vaguely in it, for only a few minutes at most per episode, only for a few episodes. Then I found out that Renton only shows up in the last 2 episodes, yet again for only a very brief amount of time...

Although you could argue that it IS supposed to be about 'Ao' Eureka and Renton's son, I didn't really enjoy that very much either. As I felt that he spent more time trying to figure out what the "scub coral" was and what the "secrets" were, when I was there thinking...why isn't he going in search of Eureka at least, after all, it's been mentioned a fair few times by a couple episodes in about this mysterious woman that apparently is his mother, that came and saved people before and that every single government and person wants to seem to find ...but for some reason, he doesn't really do much about it. It's almost put as a background sub-plot.

As predictable as they may have thought it, they could have at least made it a good story about "Ao" trying to find his family. After all, isn't Renton and Eureka the main characters everyone wants to see through the whole thing?

Then I found actual story line to be quite confusing and basically spent a few episodes building up what felt like to me "dead end twists". Like when Ao decides to join the Allied forces instead of Generation Blue, which wastes like a whole episode of him joining them, only for his former team mates to fly over and ask him to come back, which he does....felt like a bit of a waste of episode time.

Also it spent so much time going on about the Japanese government vs US vs UN vs Okinawa, etc. etc. etc it just got boring. I kinda zoned out all about the government stuff throughout as it just felt like a load of filler.

And it didn't really have a whole "family reunited" kind of happy ending, it just had ***MAJOR SPOILER*** them reunite for like 30 seconds just for Ao to send his parents to another universe. And what's with making a fairly happy upbeat romance series all sad with Eureka and Renton's baby daughter dying, that's really sad. It would've been better if they could of found a way to not kill her off.

Overall, fairly disappointed, as they had the potential to make one heck of a sequel here. But I felt they chose the wrong story and plot, if only they had made it just a tad more about Renton and Eureka, maybe add in the rest of the Gekkostate crew, even if just a small bit, it would have been better. I haven't mentioned everything that I didn't like here, because I could just go on. They may just be able to save it if they made a really good sequel to this that not only finished happier, but also explained a lot of what was going on in this.

Oh yeah! And they really mess it up by confusing you with parallel universe and time travel stuff! In my short experience watching films, don't ever stick time travel in a film, it just sets you up for confusing your fans and making loads of plot holes.

All in all if you want to kind of enjoy it, i'd probably say read a little bit about it then just watch the last 3-2 episodes, you will still gather a fair bit of whats going on and it'll save you watching 20 or so fairly confusing episodes. And you'll actually get to see Renton & Eureka!
