Review: "Eureka Seven AO" - Needs Less Plot, More Action

Eureka Seven AO Nirvash

Ao Fukai, the lead character of Eureka Seven: AO, has problems. He’s an orphan for starters, and an outsider in a future Okinawa that has real problems with non-natives in general. And by “outsider,” I don’t mean that he’s from some other country: he’s quite literally an alien, or half-alien anyway. That’s not a spoiler, […]

Level E 1

Earth has problems. Sure, there’s global warming, sectarian violence, discord, strife and general meanness everywhere, but there’s also aliens. Yep, aliens are real alright….real jerks. Specifically Prince Baka, aptly named not so much because he’s actually dumb but because his preferred use for his massive intelligence is pranks and general loutishness. Yes, he is actually […]
