Aquarion Logos #24 — Like a Flashback, But Somehow Even Worse

December 10th, 2015


I don't think anybody on this staff has any idea what they're doing anymore.


Well, this episode certainly continued the total collapse began last week. Most people would consider it a red flag when the writers feel they need to take ten minutes out of the 'climax' of the story to journey to a noncanonical pocket dimension where the characters, living and dead, narrate/act out the background crap that's supposed to be driving things. They've managed the impossible. They found a way to take an extended eleventh hour flashback and make it even worse. It's unneeded and the framing device of the characters acting it out just calls attention to how awkwardly it's crowbarred in there. It's ten minutes of fanservice for people who have their heads five feet up the asses of Aquarion's nonsensical lore, something they should be glossing over in the first place, presented in what very well may have been the worst way possible. I can't even fathom how anybody could have thought that was a good idea.

As for the rest, what rest? Everyone basically mopes around, until Akira flies off to the final battle… to come next week. Again, Japan. The struggle should be against the enemy or to overcome a challenge, not to get up the gumption just to show up.

    I really doubt they knew what they were doing from the start.
