Generally finding appreciation for Eureka Seven was a problem until later on, as well.

With all the mysteries encroaching you don't stop to appreciate the earlier episode as much. It is after you reach the end of the journey and reflect that you realize how much the whole experience meant. Granted, the characterization isn't as superb as its predecessor, AO is by no means a bad sequel.

Episode 15 is now up and subbed.

A rather interesting episode that builds heavily upon the plot. AO is starting to get really good now. Unfortunately if what I hear, Eureka Seven AO will be on hiatus for the next two weeks due to the damn Olympics.

Episode 15



Well, the latest Secret not only has speech communication but is also one tough cookie.



So many secrets

Side note: It seems that there will be a 2-weeks delay possibly from the Summer Olympics..

It is such a bother.

Several of my programs are going on hiatus because of the Olympics. Sigh, this episode isn't enough on its own. The entire feel of it has to fluidly slid into episode 16. This is disappointing in all honesty.

E7AO is sometimes great to watch, but right now it's making me disappointed.

just found some time to catch up on the 4 episodes i was behind on and wow, leave it to e7 to be incredibly entertaining and confusing at the same time. i'm trying to run through the notions of this being a crazy prequel mindfuck but i don't have the life in me to connect the dots. id love to hear anyone's thoughts on what could be really going on ^^

Well the timeline is confusing, Is AO in earth's past or future, and in a recent episode Eureka is pregnant but with a girl?, Then what about our young hero? And this " Truth " character, I don't know what to make of him or Naru anymore.

Although I'd rather it not be, we've some time travel elements.

From my understanding AO is taking place in the year it mentioned, 2025 AD. Kōkyōshihen takes place in the year 12005 and ends 12007 that is including the epilogue. For whatever reason the Scub Coral ends up appearing in the past in a manner unlike it was supposed to. Events in the past are incorrect which if what many suspect of the Secrets to be, they are there to eliminate the Scub Coral and the disturbances they're causing. Eureka being pregnant with a girl was a substantial plot development.
Have the entertainment of Eureka Seven has always been its mysteries. We were left in the dark most of the time in AO predecessor if anyone cares to remember. Renton built the RA272 Nirvash based off of typeZERO. Eureka was flung into this scenario and gave birth to Ao in the past. Despite this we are left with more questions than answers.

Why had Nirvash rejected Eureka? What vendetta does Truth have and what are his ultimate goals? The obvious mystery concerning Ao's birth if Eureka was indeed pregnant with a girl. Toshio Fukai seemed to have some knowledge, however, he was cut short from revealing anything to Ao about knowledge of him having a sister or what he knew of Renton. Naru on the other hand is a bit easier to explain at least in my opinion.
Naru has a piece of the Scub Coral living inside her. After spending time with Truth and being exposed to the Scub Coral she has now become aware of the reasoning behind its existence and their goal. She is now fanatical in the protection of the Scub Coral but has been manipulated by Truth essentially serving as a inadvertent piece in the destruction of the very thing she seeks to protect. Truth is using her and through Naru he has control over Nirvash at least to some degree. We'll learn more but we've got to wait three weeks until the Olympics end and we then see why the scubs are reactivating without their Quartz.

I agree with everything you're saying, though there has been one question I've had since Eureka appearance (spoilers for end of original E7):

I can understand there are mysteries to be solved in this series, but this here just seems less like a mystery and more of either a glaring plot hole or, God forbid, a poorly written retcon! I like the mystery aspect of this series (it's why I love the series so much), but this just doesn't add up!

I wouldn't trust a wiki.

I'm practically an encyclopedia myself due to the sheer number of times I've watched Kōkyōshihen. I've not met nor heard from another person who has watched it over 30+ times. That is just one of the mysteries Bones likes to tease us with, it makes me want to tear out my hair sometimes, but I've faith in Bones.
For whatever reason, Nirvash is back. I've my own speculations, due to how Renton and Eureka have aged it suffices to say years have passed on the Land of Kanan. Therefore, I presume the Scub Coral have since created a permanent Control Cluster allowing Nirvash to step down seeing as Nirvash was more like a temporary Control Cluster at best. As such it would be by Nirvash's own will that it return to the Earth and the young human and coralian that their coexistence rests upon. For their sake it probably allowed itself to revert to its spec2 form, seeing as spec 3 is pretty much only suitable for a single pilot.

After Nirvash's return Renton would have then --for whatever reason-- begun construction of the RA272 based upon typeZERO. It also reasonable to believe that Renton is responsible for recreating Nirvash's spec2 designs even upgrading it in some cases. Eureka demonstrated a new set of weapons on typeZERO before she disappeared through the Scub Burst. The whole dilemma seems less drastic when you consider it had taken Nirvash years to return. As for the development relating to Naru it is vague, but I still have one theory for that as well.
Nirvash was born from the Scub Coral and as such is bound to it. Naru has a piece of the Scub Coral growing inside her, Nirvash likely picked up on this and now may be trying to decipher why? Nirvash is a sentient being and considering Ao was nearby and that humanoid Secret was emerging from the Scub Burst it wouldn't have been wise to try approaching the burst. So Nirvash left Eureka to Ao, but notice that Nirvash really hates Truth. This could simply be Nirvash trying to get close to Truth in order to end his ambitions whatever those may be.

I could probably brush up on my viewings of AO, but there really is not complete explanation at this point. AO has been frustrating due to all its various mysteries, but at least now that we are in the second half of its run, we'll get some answers. We just need to be patient.

Eureka Seven AO returns to regular broadcasting this week. Episode 16 should be up sometime tomorrow. It is well past time to give a little more life to the series after two weeks of nothing.

Operation Polaris officially begins and that registers some spectacular aerial combat. Naru also returns and takes flight.

A great episode for the series' return.
