Aquarion is back. I actually remember the very first Aquarion show from back in the day. Quite frankly, I don’t know why there are so many series of this. Aquarion Evol didn’t do so well. The ratings weren’t spectacular and neither were the sales. The ratings for Aquarion Logos aren’t really that good right now either.
I honestly don’t think it’s the artwork. The mechs all look pretty damn good, the characters look nice and the worlds all look pretty cool. I would gladly slap you if you said that this looks like a budget production.
The story is definitely the problem here. Aquarion Evol became rather weird, predictable and had quite a strange ending. Things get confusing really fast and a lot of times it contains too many nonsense scenes. I guess that puts people off…
I’ll admit that I had a hard time watching Aquarion Evol. I skipped through a lot of it to make it to the ending. That is why I’m not recommending this one. The Aquarion series have not done well over the years and I don’t see that changing with this one.
Plot Summary: Once upon a time, human voices had defined the true nature of all things, yet the invention of text changed the status quo, while creating a “Logos World” between the voice and the truth. Millennia have passed since then, advancements of civilizations have made the “Logos World” too big to control “texts.” A group of young people dedicate themselves to counter chaotic “texts” with “Creative Voice Power,” and among them, a boy named Akira Kaibuki living in Asagaya.
