Aquarion EVOL 26

Aquarion Evol

Haha wow, after 26 episodes, 20,000 years and 4,000 more, Apollon Amata and Silvie Mikono finally get to a happy ending together. Poor Zess, but at least she got back home safe and sound despite everything. And there’s some odd sparks between her and Kagura….

You know, after rewatching this episode and discussing it a bit, I realised that this episode oddly resembled the final episode of Macross Frontier, down to the permanent song accompaniment, the giant mecha final boss and Amata diving straight in “HOW CAN I GIVE UP RIGHT NOW… MIKONO-SAAAAAAN!!!”. Yeah even I’ll admit that was pretty fucking manly. Though I still think Mikono really did nothing useful except for being the damsel-in-distress to Amata’s manly saving of the world by taking over the giant Aquarion with the POWER OF LOVE. Actually, just watch the entire episode. It’s worth it.

Even Mykage got a happy ending, as after all that, Apollonius GEN ZEN finally took responsibility and accepted him. I’m actually happy for him too! I mean, after all that shit he’s been through for the past 20,000 years and 4,000 more, he surely deserved something from Apollonius. Now let’s just hope that there’s not ANOTHER plot twist and ZEN’s actually Apollonius’ pet cat.

Most of the cast got their moments in the spotlight too. Shrade reappearing in spirit form was awesome without losing the meaning of his sacrifice earlier. Crea going out to battle was certainly unexpected and even more unexpected was her teasing Donar and Suomi right before heading off www. Of course, Andy and MIX gattai’ing finally brought a smile and a tear to my eyes ( *=‿=*)

Overall, really entertaining episode, but still didn’t quite explain every plot point properly. For instance, they totally forgot about the residents of Altair after the world got saved… I mean what happened to all of them? Did they get their females back? I mean, I can kinda imagine some of the guys there reverting back to girls… oh man, that’s gonna be fucking awkward isn’t it? And does this ending mean Apollonius got his true love’s soul NTR’ed by his own dog?! OK, THAT’S ENOUGH FOR NOW LOL.

Liked: Had its ups, but the downs are bad enough to say otherwise.
Rewatch: Ehhh… probably not.

    But Celianne wasn’t his true love. Toma was.

    The True Story of Aquarion is about two gay space angels who got NTRed by a flying dog and a human woman and were only reunited after 24000 years.

    I’ve always said that the ending takes 50% of the score, and I’m sorry, but that was too impossibly cheesy to dislike.

    Now I don’t know about you, but this thing got me the biggest laughs in the past few months. If I ever gave two shits about plot holes and inconsistencies I couldn’t have enjoyed it like I did. I don’t regret watching this. Hell no.

    Well yeah, I did the enjoy the show when it was being silly as fuck, but their handling of the drama and plot didn’t work out quite well for me.

    Nevertheless, it’s STILL entertaining when it’s great, but as a whole it’s lacking quite a bit.

    I’m glad that this series will not have another sequel!

    All of them got a happy ending and not a single soul was lost on that episode, not to mention seeing Mix’s big bangs again! (Maybe her vagina is back too)

    And for some reason, we didn’t see what’s behind that mask of that paper bag girl!

    You know I was REALLY hoping to see the true face of paper bag girl. Alas, Kawamori has decided we are not worthy of such privilege :(

    The fact that Mykage never got any comeuppance soured the ending for me.

    You know I wonder what happened to the pure love half of Toma since even Fudo said in the final episode that Mykage is the shadow that separated from it.

    I guess it along with Sirius and Apollo still lived on sorta inside Aquarion for those 12,000 years.

    For a love story about 12000 years or whatnot, it was dull as hell as far as romance is concerned. Pretty pew pew pew everywhere.

    Well, the previous trio seem to be stuck inside the original Aquarions somehow (still don’t get this part), so I guess that’s naturally where Toma still is.

    As for Mykage not getting his comeuppance… yeah, that was a bit unfair, but Kawamori probably decided to end everything on a good note this time… until he decides to make Aquarion III and retcon everything yet again.

    @Lily Nadesico

    You know what, he should have been stuck there in space for the rest of his life instead of possessing Fudou’s body.

    I thought it was rather amusing that in the end they reversed EVOL into LOVE. can’t believe I didn’t see before.

    Sousei song was about Touma and Apollonius. So I think Touma’s his true lurv.

    He’s just a gigantic jerk and his partner is the most massive doormat who will forgive any shit he pulls.

    Somehow they remind me to Zeus and Hera of Greek Mythology. Kawamori said he was inspired by Roman and Greek Mythology for Aquarion.

    >Apollonius got his true love’s soul NTR’ed by his own dog?!
    No, because his true love was Celianne, who is dead since 24k years. He just likes blonde short haired mature women (see Sophia).
