Wow. That was unbelievable. It was quite possibly the dumbest show I’ve seen since… the first Aquarion.
Why, Japan, why?! You could have made any anime you wanted. And you decided to make a sequel to GENESIS OF AQUARION?!!! What the hell were you thinking?!
Let’s start with the good parts of this episode. Mikono’s character design was cute.
Ok, onto the bad parts. Mikono is walking sack of clingy whininess. Amata has less personality than a pile of horse manure. I have no bloody clue who anyone else is, even though it seems like I’m supposed to. I don’t know who they’re fighting. I don’t know who they are. I don’t know what they’re fighting with. I don’t know why I should care.
Mikono and Amata’s “relationship” is pretty much the corniest thing imaginable. They meet at the movie theater, and are the reincarnation of the fated lovers (I assume). They go on a date, hug each other, fly into the sky, and Mikono spends the rest of the episode crying and sitting on Amata’s lap. It made me want to barf.
So did corny lines like this:
And obnoxious poses and lines like this:
One last thing, piloting robots in the universe of Aquarion involves participation in an orgy. Except the people in this show act like kindergartners who think they’ll get cooties if they talk to boys / girls and don’t wear their chastity stones.
Obviously, I’m dropping this one. (actually, I dropped it before I finished the first episode.)
