This episode brought to you by Jolly Ranchers hard candy…
|Soooo we have officially reached this episode and sadly we have to wait until November to finally wrap things up for the Eureka Seven Ao universe. I just hope the wait is really worth it in the end for the diehard fans; however you can listen to me and Jrow chat it up about this episode on our epic mini talk! Also you can look forward to a similar format for Robotic;notes in the future here on Metanorn.|
Truth of a thousand faces
Soldier-“I don’t have any candy…” Truth-“Then I will take your soul then! Wuhahahah.”
Truth-“I hope you like to surf Ao!” Ao-“Oh…god…spinning…gonna…puke…”
Throughout the entire series of E7 Ao we have seen Truth transform into various characters, but recently he has gone through a dramatic change and sure after he was blown to bits by Christophe I think Truth in full on CRAZY mode! I think the blast basically nuked his brain. So what is going on with Truth now? In short he is a basically an insane rubber like powers turning him almost ghost like just to scare the crap out of you! Also why the hell would those military guys open fire on him inside their own cockpit? ARE YOU THAT STUPID!? I just couldn’t stop laughing after that moment…that aside what is Truth really? During the final moments of the episode he claims to something higher than humans, scub corals and secrets? Truth probably thinks he is some type of god of destruction? That would certainly fit his current mentality of “Destroy! Destroy! DESTROY EVERYTHING!” from episode twenty one; however at this point I just want Truth to get owned by Ao already because Truth is a giant troll who needs to be put down for good!
Adventures in epic time travel
Renton-“TELL ME THE FUTURE! Oh wait…bastard…” Tiny ring-“Trololololol.”
Renton-“Where we’re going Nirvosh we don’t need moe girls!” Nirvosh-“Awwwwww why not?”
“It’s the same wherever I go.” – Renton Thirston Eureka Seven Ao – 22
While that is a very short quote from future Renton near the end of this episode, it reveals that he has been jumping from timeline to timeline for a long time, but how long has he been searching for Eureka and his son? Judging just by his looks alone I think he has been doing the time travel thing for a very LONG time and just how old is Renton I mean he has some white in his hair; however that just makes him look like more of a badass complete with a shotgun and epic glasses? I just loved listening to his voice and his reaction to seeing the seven pillars of light aka the Seventh Swell! I swear hearing that classic line took be back to the original Eureka Seven when that phrase always meant something amazing was about to happen next. So what about his Nirvosh? Is that from the TV series or could it be the final Nirvosh from the movie; however it could just be a brand new Nirvosh that is built for time travel missions? I assume Renton used the Seventh Swell to hitch a ride to another time line…sadly as much as I loved that whole scene it just left us wanting more in the end! Anyway I don’t want to rage about that so I will take a pass on talking about it. So what do you think of the new bad ass Renton so far? Of course we barely know anything about him right now, but I have high hopes for him to appear in episode twenty three or possibly in episode twenty four?
Extra time travels
Ao-“soooo are you cosplaying as some vocaloid or something?” Naru-“……”
Ao-“Oh wow…you look way hotter with horns.” Naru-“When this series ends I will kill you.”
Director-“Did you hear the news Truth?” Truth-“Uh that I get to win in the end right?”
Director-“Nope! We aren’t airing episodes until November.” Truth-“Thanks for nothing….”
Great episode of Eureka Seven Ao for me, but honestly this was a Truth themed episode which probably bored most of us out there because Truth has worn out his welcome for a long ass time. I really want him to get shut down in the next two episodes! SO HURRY UP AND DEFEAT HIM Ao! Seriously what is taking you so long bro? That said I hope the final showdown between those two is something amazing and not a simple event where Ao pulls a trigger and Truth is killed off in a lame way…anyway the best moment was easily the appearance of Renton who was voiced by Keiji Kujiwara as Jrow pointed out and I always think of him as Shirou Fujimoto from Ao no Exorcist who also uses a shotgun!? Is that a possible voice actor connection? Old badass dudes with kick ass shotguns. So what do you want to happen at the end of this series? I have a few ideas like an ending where Ao alters the world where everyone that he has met on his journey so far has a different life just like the other members of team Goldilocks, but feel free to tell me you Eureka Seven Ao ending theories I would love to see who gets close to the true ending as we gear up towards November.
Nirvosh-“Renton why so moeeeee?” Renton-“EH? I thought I was going for the badass look?”
See you in November for thanksgiving turkey and maybe some sweet Eureka Seven Ao for dessert?
