Ao joined an organization called Generation Blue with Nirvash, helped fighting against Secret.
having heard great things about Eureka Seven (2005), one would expect even greater things with Eureka Seven AO (2012) since the improvement of graphic technology. unfortunately, the plot turned out to be quite a mess. there were little character development after the first few episodes. Ao and Naru could have better personalities, they stood out not exactly in a good way, making them less likable that they originally could. as for the plot, half of the time i was in complete confusion, not knowing what was going on. the complexity sometimes made it interesting to watch, but it was hardly enjoyable.
