Aquarion EVOL- 15: 12,000 Years Promise

All of them bathe...unlike a certain red headed dog person.

I knew that Kagura was out of control but I had no idea that his element powers were all out of whack as well. I previously thought that Mikage had simply warped what may have been love into hate but it seems that the entire misunderstanding was because Kagura talks funny. So much for Kagura actually wanting to kill Mikono, and right now Mikono seems to be taking pity on Kagura at a really bad time. Zessica might have a shot after all but Amata is going to have his heart torn to shreds. Kagura might be an idiot without the wits to recite Krogan Love Poetry, but he seems to be genuinely in love with Sylvie. Mikono is a lock for at least part of Sylvie, though Zessica might be another part given the mirror flashback.

Kagura may have only begun to make a reverse confession while talking like a child, but Andy and Mix are really starting to take their love to new heights. Their combo attack might have only slowed Kagura but at this point it doesn’t seem like anyone can take him on one on one. Even Shrade and Cayenne were unable to make more than a passing impression. Otherwise unintentional comedy ensued as Kagura tried to overcome the price of his awesome element powers. Shu Shu hates Amata but that hairball will likely take a new liking to being licked by Kagura. I am all for kissu, but it was strange to see Kagura giving a kissu to Mikono’s knee.

I had hoped to avoid a prolonged period of mourning after Jin died a hero, and a certainly after that tragedy we have moved on. I just didn’t see Kawamori making an Initial D homage coming though I have not been able to predict what that crazy old zen master is going to do next. As much as I am willing to let Kagura and Mikono rekindle their flame of 12,000 years, I hope that Mikage is not going to profit from it. Sadly Kagura sees Mikage as his master of sorts and so long as this is true I am a bit torn when it comes to Zessica. Yes, Mikono and Kagura are likely destined but Amata doesn’t strike me as that useless, and given the abandonment issues that he has had he might be crazy enough to challenge destiny. Certainly if he did he would be also frustrating Mikage’s plans.

Zessica is such a nice girl, she has already backed off even if it causes her no shortage of heartache and now has to see Amata not only ignore her affections but struggle against what seems to be a destined match. Mikono is not helping matters much as it seems that her affection for Kagura is on the up, and after what she pulled she will have plenty of explaining to do even if Fudo knows what is going on. Andy can only help Amata so much and now it all hinges on who Mikono is going to choose. Amata isn’t exactly a dolt because he was consistent and I can’t hold him at fault for being loyal to a fault even if Zessica is doing her best. Even with dithering Mikono, I can’t blame her for being confused, she shares something with Amata (both being former useless people and all) but it seems that fate will not be kind as her love from 12,000 years ago has returned to fulfill a vow. I have to hand it to Kawamori, he learned the lesson of Ranka well and I just don’t have that bottomless well of hate to draw upon for this shipping war. I just really want to see Mikage dead so that every ship has a chance to sail without benefitting that vile bird person.

Kagura is an idiot and a dog, but now that Jin has been murdered I hope that if it falls to Kagura to be Altair’s savior that he can somehow part ways with that enemy of love. Still I would pick Izumo over Kagura to avenge Jin if only because Izumo realizes Mikage’s true nature even if he is not nearly as powerful as Kagura. Still it has to be said that as powerful as Kagura is Mikage does own him and I don’t see Kagura being able to take on the enemy of love even if Mikono is at his side.

Other than Mikage being a bastard and making me hate sakura petals and butterflies, I have no idea what is coming next. As much as I adore having Mix and Andy getting along famously, Mikage is still alive and able to threaten every ship. Yunoha is able to move on but I still hate how Jin is a goner. At least Zessica has a real chance now that Mikono is going to have to contend with destiny 12,000 years in the making. I just hope that if the worst comes to pass that Zessica can pluck out all of Mikage’s feathers and then tar him with them. Yunoha’s ED was nice though it might have had more impact if it had more Jin and aired two episodes ago, still it at least gives me  hope that she will live through this. I wonder though if we will have a special ED for Zessica, Mix, Sazanka, and Mikono. I wonder what weirdness would spew forth from Sazanka’s fujoshi mind, but perhaps it could cost me dearly in sanity points. Still that would be great considering that Kawamori would never sanction audio kryptonite for anyone other than Kaifun.

Andy will protect you!

This will be very telling.

A pity Donar got whupped, but at least Suomi will help him feel better.

It's almost as if...

Oh so they did put int he paper work.

Glad they held off on the ceremony, Andy needs to get the upper body strength to carry Mix across the threshold.

Putting a bag over your head is not going to help Mikono.

Because she owes him money?

I know what you are thinking but some how if Kagura did that it would not apply.

Dog vs. Cat...

It will be bloodless, only smothering.

So Zessica does it and it's ZOMG AHHHH, when Kagura does it's okay...

I guess Mikage was too lazy to set up voice mail.

Works for me.

You're probably right but that doesn't mean he won't try.

Mikono's choice of fragrances is most lacking.

I want to know the answer as well.

It's not her fault that Mikage made you all sterile and killed your women.

I admire the sentiment, I just wonder about your resolve...

WUT? This has all been a misunderstanding because Kagura can't control his powers of reversal?

I guess Mikono took an arrow to the knee.

About time some one gave a Shu Shu a licking...I'll ask for a beating next time.

Mikono loves some cat and dog action.

Keep saying that and the feeling will be mutual.

I guess people made fun of him as a kid.

So beware if Kagura ever sounds smooth.

He's watched it like 12,000 times.

Ah grainy old footage.

In some versions, yes.

I wonder if Kagura is going to be doomed with reverse hair growth.

Well part of Sylvie...

Damn it sure looks like destiny...

That if part is starting to get iffy...

I am praying for a BEST END for you.

Even Andy noticed...

I guess he wants her to call him Apollo...

There are delaying actions and then there are delaying beat downs...

Like 12,000 times?

I accept iron sights but not in low light conditions...

I hope Amata is preparing himself for a destiny 12,000 years in the making.

I hate flower petals.

Well if you are willing to pay attention then there is no, "why."

    You’re going to love 16. Also, we finally get Suzanka’s power. There will be lol’s.

    Oh, and Kawamori is so on his game for this series. It’s been great each week.

    Oh, and in an episode with an Initial D reference, the Amagani SS reference wasn’t too out of left field, was it? With the knee. Though slightly different in context.

      I like how nutty Kawamori is getting, it gives us insight to what he’s been watching. Sazanka the Hurricane was a revelation.

    Hey, Crusader. Remember how before, you made references to Patrick (admittedly, I’m assuming you’re referring to Gundam 00’s Patrick Colasaur) in regards to Andy? When you mentioned that, I also made a connection to the 2 of them: funny (well I think so), likeable guys (from the looks of it, both of really popular in their respective fandoms), who both seem to be Allies of Love. Well, I knew that both of their love interests (Kati and Mix) were bespectacled and didn’t like them (though they differ in that Kati was cold, while Mix was more…how should I put it fiery?) until about a time that got shot down (though this happened to Patrick many times before that).

    I know it’s probably not that big a deal, but what I didn’t know was that, apparently (even if it was probably just coincidence), Patrick and Andy like older women. I knew that Kati was, like, 4-5 years older than Patrick (but they’re adults, so it matters less). But Mix’s age surprised me.

    For Evol: Jin is 14, Yunoha is 15, Amata, Mikono, and Kagura are 16, Zessica, Andy, and Shrade are 17, and Cayenne and Mix are 19! Cayenne didn’t surprise me, but Shrade and Mix did. I guess that would explain her height and comparison to the other girls though.

    Anyways, yeah, SQA said, I’m confident that you’re going to like episode 16, but then again, it seems that, like me, you like most episodes of this series as it is.

      It’s not a big deal but it’s just more fun to force a line of succession even if it is not officially there. I just finished episode 16 Sazanaka “the Hurricane” Bianca squared the enjoyment factor.

        Shrade looks like he was 19… Mix being 19 is just unexpected.

    Amata’s messed up memories still bothers me, the sequence we saw in episode 2 and the other flashbacks doesn’t match up, the Aquarion was missing.

    Kagura’s backwards speech is actually quite amusing.

      Wouldn’t it be something if Amata was wrong about his memories…still possible since he was only a little kid at the time.

      Kagura should have a whole segment where he tries to sing Mikono a love song.

      Same here but good grief it does not look good.

    If I’d hold a “character most likely to be voiced by Kawamori himself” it’d be Fudo Zen. Especially next episode. Alas, there’s still a professional VA doing the job.

    I kinda have to reverse some of my opinions on Kagura, although that he is willingly being used by Mykage doesn’t help him at all.

      “character most likely to be voiced by Kawamori himself”
      I’ll choose both Mikage and Fudo.

      Fudo is Kawamori’s personality, voiced by someone else. It’s pretty clear, haha.

        Mikage would be the trolling side of him.

      It could be that Kagura simply doesn’t know any better that or he’s house broken.
