Eureka Seven Ao episode 04

Here we go again with our weekly dose of mecha mayhem. It is a little bit disappointing that I predicted most of this week’s events beforehand. Then again, it’s not like this week’s events were surprising. Most people already figured it out a week ago, some of which discussed it at length on several boards.

I’m not going to lie; I’m slightly disappointed that Ao joined that organization. I know that he’s completely clueless on how to operate that mech, that he has no battle experience, and that he doesn’t know which people to befriend and not. His friends right now are reduced to a mere handful of people. He should be happy that he has a trustworthy friend that helped him hide his mech until he could settle his affairs. Mind you, putting yourself at risk to meet up with Generation Blue is not actually worth it, especially since things could become a lot more troublesome if Nirvash, Ao’s mech, were to fall into the wrong hands.

I was a little bit surprised to see how inferior Ao really is right now. He launched a head-on attack on the G-Monsters without knowing a thing about them. He didn’t know what kind of weaponry he had at his disposal, and he lost his gun when he actually found out how to draw it, after which he ended up getting saved by Generation Blue before the G-Monsters blew him to pieces. Now don’t get me wrong, those Generation Blue people seem sort of nice, but that could just be a façade. Large and powerful organisations tend to tamper with the truth a little from time to time.

Anyway, I have been writing about this week’s episode as though there were only bad things, which is absolutely not true. Ao may have lost many things during these few episodes, many things indeed. However, Naru-chan has stayed by his side all this time. He still has his most important friend. The real question is; is it wise to let her tag along? She has a very weak body and could easily be captured and used to lure Ao into a trap.

One thing is certain from all of this; the ‘real’ story is about to unfold. It is time to find out who his friends and foes are. For now I’m squeezing Generation Blue out of the picture. They did a lot of thing to help Ao and his friends, so they deserve a little bit of trust. I’m putting my money on those Allies Forces that came to find Ao and his mech.
