Aquarion EVOL – 16: The Hurricane

Mikage will never be able to take that away from you.

Zessica’s romantic woes continue but at least she was able to beat Amata to the altar of confession. Things are looking bad for Altea as well as the Ianthe is rapidly breaking down (thanks to Mikage most likely) and explosions are becoming common and are large enough to be seen from orbit. The end game seems to be rapidly approaching as Fudo has installed battle drills after giving everyone an upgrade. It’s also a great time to see what some of the other characters have for element powers. Malloy made his way to Andy shit list in short order with a mere support power, and Sazanka has just claimed the crown for Fujoshi of the year. Not only is she blatantly shipping Shrade and Cayenne for all to hear she even put Malloy down and knocked him down a peg. I just hope that if it comes to it that Sazanka will kill Mikage in a manner most humiliating and strikes him with a Category 5 Hurricane of the Rotten Girl.

The fight itself was most entertaining as Malloy and Sazanka used it as a coming out party while Cayenne was paying tribute to Norris Packard by posing on top of skyscrapers and being relentless and nigh unstoppable. Amata did not win top honors this time as Zessica’s unrequited love was able to save the day and go back in time. While one can never be too sure about any of Kawamori’s continuities but it is safe to say that Amata, Zessica, and Mikono were in for a rude shock when they met the real Apollo and Sylvie. It was literally a gut punch for Amata as it pretty much confirmed what he tried his best to deny. Kagura is such a sure fit that it is almost undeniable now. Still while Kagura has inherited Apollo’s animal habits, Mikono doesn’t seem to have inherited the immense strength that Sylvia had. It was fun going down memory lane and all the more better since I was a bit on edge when Zessica was confessing her love while piloting Aquarion given the possibility of Mikage showing his ugly self.

I commend Zessica for her courage though, bad enough she really needed to confess and can’t seem to get much support, but to have the first one fall flat and have to do it again… Never let it be said that Zessica lacks for courage. Yunoha is doing well on her path to recovery, but Mikono’s troubles are only beginning and are likely to get worse once Amata and Kagura really go at it. Andy is fully behind Amata even if he has decided to defer to Amata for making the choice. Gotta love how Andy put it so succinctly that Amata was kicking himself for nothing and that Amata needed to address the Shush problem. I just don’t think Andy wanted Amata to start paying tribute to Shush to get in its good graces.

Mix and Andy are getting along famously but it seems that Mix is not quite Andy’s equal when to comes to promoting love. Granted Mix seems very interesting Zessica but while most of Mix’s advice to come out and say it are true, Mix completely misread the situation. Still I sympathize with Mix, Zessica has at best an outside shot at the moment, and Mix netting Andy and Zessica would be a great. However Zessica deserves a chance to make her feelings clear even if they might be in vain. I just worry though that now that Zessica has started blaming herself for Aquarion going berserk that she is becoming too vulnerable. Not that Mix wouldn’t be able to help Zessica out, but with Mikage on the loose and given how insidious his influence can be I hope that Zessica steels her heart until Amata gives her the answer she longs for or an answer that is half way decent. If nothing else Zessica is all in and the ball is squarely in Amata’s court. Hope it works out for Zessica as she is much more interesting when she is happy and irritating Mikono.

Next week is a beach episode and Kawamori being Kawamori is letting us all know about it. I hope Zessica finds a way to cope with her romantic woes, and maybe Suomi will over awe Donar who needs to have a good end considering how badly he got robbed by Mikage. I hope that the beach episode will not be a complete waste and that there will be some progress made. Izumo seriously needs to set in motion is plan to save Altea because Mikage should not be allowed to proceed briskly while Jin still needs avenging.

Good to see that Andy is not about rubbing it in.

Andy was able to tap into Cayenne's powers of prophecy.

Andy admits that DESTINY might be just as mighty foe as Mikage.

I think Andy wanted Amata to defeat Shush not pay him tribute.

Twisty heartache is never easy.

I guess Mix has been stalking Zessica in her free time.

On this Mix and Andy agree.

I think Mix has an agenda...

If it cane be seen from orbit it must have been big...

It was long over due...

If Kawamori wills it.

Boring Malloy...good to know how far down his is from Shrade in the pecking order.

It's still just a support power.

Andy is going to kick Malloy's ass along with Mikage's.

Yes here comes the story of the Hurricane the girl that NUNS came to blame, for something that she had done. Put in Aquarion and this time she would be the Fujoshi of the world.

This guy...IS AN ACE.

I see that Zessica has been reading from the book of Andy.

At least Zessica is thinking of Mix.

You can do more than think it.

...

KEEP GOING...

Well I guess we know why there is no need for super/armor/tornado packs.

I guess Amata needs a hearing aid.

If at first you don't succeed...

TRY AGAIN!

...

YESSSSSSSSS!

Will it be your first?

Poor Donar thought, "OH SHIT MIKAGE..."

Andy was worried that Mikage would make an appearance as well.

Mix was not happy about losing Zessica.

How about them apples Mikono?

That you love Zessica too...

Hey, that's not fair Mikono you got your wolf boy...

Yes the power of love is a curious thing.

Hehehe...

I bet they never taught you guys that in Sunday School.

My hatred for him remains undimmed for 24,000 years, it will go on for another 12,000.

Haven't we all...

Damn I was hoping for a "you stink deliciously" retconn.

I asked for more and got my wish, sort of...

It's nice when people follow through on promises.

I guess Cayenne was busy, and Malloy felt insulted.

Look you did the right thing, you didn't mess up. Mikage did not show up, you didn't mess up, you won.

Yeah...Kagura is a lock...

    i wouldn’t say Kagura is definitely Apollo just yet. There could be always twist(and turns) later in the show. Or maybe he is Apollo only in body and/or mind but not in spirit.

    wouldn’t it be weird if Amata was Touma(SP?) and Mikono was Apollo?

      Anything is possible but I am almost certain that Kagura inherited something from Apollo.

        i would say memories mixed with ‘Vega’ movie forced upon by Mikage.

    We’re kind of assuming “direct reincarnation”, when even the first series split the memories/abilities/souls of the characters up. Plus, there’s the 24k and 12k people involved.

    I think we’re going to get a weird split: Amata is mostly Apollonius, Kagura is mostly Apollo. (Kagura might also be partly Apollonius’ dog) Cayenne & Shrade are likely both part Sirius. Mikono & Zessica are likely both part Silvia & Celiane. So we’ve got a whole host of cross-over effects. [Amata could also be part Futaba, as well. Given the wing location/lost childhood thing]

    So, where this is going, I don’t quite know. I get the feeling the “fight destiny” aspect is here to stay. I foresee Sazanka & Donar teaming up to kill Mikage, and for Sazanka to be the one to willingly head to Altear. (It’s practically her dream land, haha) Either way, Mikage is dying a painful, painful death.

      Oh, and Mix has sailed her own ship with Andy so far. She actually left Zessica to met up with Andy. Go back to episode 3 & 4 and think about that possibility, haha.

      Weird split is likely though it seems increasingly likely that Mikono and Kagura are destined, I would like to think so as it works out nicely for Zessica.

    The whole “Kagura = Apollo” thing is a bit too much on the eye by now. There has to be a twist to it, given how Amata and Kagura have “reverse colors” with their eyes and hair. Same for Mikono and Zessica.

    I hope Zessica gets her chance. While it seems like more of a crush than real love, Amata/Mikono somehow doesn’t sit all that well with me. Probably because it is just *too* sweet, without any real conflict between the two. Any conflict they have is completely from external forces keeping them apart. Mikono/Kagura is becoming more interesting with the revelation that his “reversal” power affects his ability to talk coherently to her.

    That doesn’t mean that I’ve forgotten that the guys from Altair are dirty abductors and responsible for large numbers of dead people on Vega. Ripping families apart, separating mothers from their babies ( and killing the mothers in the process to boot )… their methods suck, even if their motivations are somewhat understandable.

    And I’ll repeat it once again, since now its in the proper episode comment section: Fudo = Kawamori ( and as someone with much insight said: Mykage = Troll Kawamori ). ^^

      Given that this is still Kawamori the Alteans will likely be redeemed even if Mikage burns for his crimes. Their methods may suck but for a society on the verge of extinction they could have done a whole lot worse. Who knows prior to Alicia’s sleep maybe they were just taking volunteers and not just mass abducting people. If I threw you in that situation would you really resign yourself to a long slow miserable death?

      • Magnus

        Uh. As far as I know, the Alteans are not dying miserably ( unless the lack of women is the cincher here ), but simply don’t have new births.

        Now, I understand what you are saying. But I think I would have explored peaceful options first… given how little people on Vega know about the abductors ( and not only the common people of Vega, but even the military leadership ) that clearly didn’t happen. That is what chaps my behind.

    I’m going with Mikono and Zessica are Silvia with a twist.

    The OVA implies OVA Apollo, Silvia and Reika reincarnated to their alternate dimension counterparts.
    Mikono inherited TV Silvia’s the power to connect, the hole/void where the big bang of creation springs forth. Zessica inherited OVA Silvia’s telekinetic power manifesting it as dimensional distortions allowing her to remember crossing both time and space. Silvia remembered Apollo is her lover. Apollo not Apollonius.

    What about Amata and Kagura. They are certainly Apollo’s reincarnation but with a twist… Not only did they inherit Apollo’s soul but they inherited Futaba’s soul. This explains Amata having angel feathers and wings. Along with being scentless. This also explains Kagura’s child-like personality.

    Oh Mykage is not Touma. Most likely he is Elder Johannes leader of the Shadow Angels. Fudo’s counterpart.

    Interestingly Zessica ID’d Gen as Zen. Despite the different character designs Amata comments they are similar. Mikono on the other hand feels she met Touma before.

    • SQA
      Posted April 19, 2012 at 4:30 am | Permalink

      I’ve seen it argued a few places that Fudo Zen is actually Touma. Or a combination of Gen + Touma. The statements given about Zen don’t actually conflict with that interpretation.

      Mikono probably thinks Touma looks like Mikage. But Touma kind of merged with Apollo and Sirius, so, well, they’re kind of somewhere else, haha. Which would explain the form/body comment Mikage made about Fudo.

    • Ryze
      Posted April 19, 2012 at 8:12 am | Permalink

      I think Amata is Apollonius’ reincarnation and Kagura is Apollo. I think both Mikono and Zessica shares the soul of both Silvia and Celiane. I don’t think Mykage is Toma. SO CLOSE but no.xD. Shrade do resemble Sirius though and Cayenne.

      Whatever Mikage is I want him dead. Funny how Futaba seems to have been redeemed…never did like him much last time around.

      Amata having angel feathers and wings was probably due to him being the Wings. Futaba doesn’t fit in.

      • ReddyRedWolf
        Posted April 20, 2012 at 12:28 pm | Permalink

        Amata’s wings are suspiciously at the same place where Futaba’s were. The New UN tore off Futaba’s wings/feathers and used them to enhance the mass produced Assault Type Aquarions. The current generation of Aquarions are descended from that line as evidenced by it Armageddon mode.

            The first one in that episode was what only Kagura perceived. The second one within the Vector Amata calling forth Aquarion. Remember the real Wings of the Sun was revealed to be Aquarion itself. As Apollonius placed a piece of his soul in it. The power of the feather.

            Now Mykage doesn’t know where Aquarion/Wings of the Sun is. Trying to coerce Fudo where was it hidden.

            Mass produced Aquarions had the power of the feather due to killing Futaba.

    Never knew Sazanka/Ranka could pull off that evil voice.

    I think Evol went “berserk” because the machine itself wasn’t used to having such high levels of emotional stress, note the first episode “The forbidden name, engraved now unto a new body”, the original was certainly capable of turning love between pilots into power. OR Aquarion got pissed off that they got Apollo and Sylvia’s names wrong and also wanted to revive the memories hidden inside them.

    Given that Sousei brought the reincarnation of Apollonius/Celiane together, it wouldn’t make sense to break that in Evol.
    Amata – definitely related to Apollonius/Apollo
    Mikono – Given how she is attracted to Amata/Kagura, she should be related to Celiane/Sylvia
    Kagura – Given how he behaves like Apollo, theres a chance he is related.
    Zessica – Attracted to Amata, therefore, related to Celiane/Sylvia.

    And destroying Aquarion is crazy, you risk damage to yourself, that explosion was ridiculously powerful.
    Aquarion punched through time and space, to show images of 12000 years ago, why couldn’t it show images from 24000 years ago as well?

      “The power that Aquarion unleashes will cross time and space”
      Looks like they are going to have a huge impact in the last battle and have a movie/OVA that shows another dimension.

      What if the punch goes back 24k years and smacks Touma up the side of the head? I wouldn’t put it past Kawamori to completely change the entire series in the ending, so it never happens.

        Posted April 19, 2012 at 5:41 am | Permalink

        What if the punch went back and hits the original’s fist which was travelling into the future and the impact created another world where the original and Evol exists at the same time along with casts from both series?

      Nakajima did do Kaede from Kampfer, not that people were lining up to watch it in droves. Still from mass murdering bug loving loser in love to Queen of Fujoshi peddling pictures I’d say Ranka has done well as Sazanka.

        I think Amata doesn’t exist ( like what Kagura said about his smell ) is because he is the reincarnation of Aquarion and Apollonius’ Solar Wings and Soul which makes Kagura Apollo that’s why Mikono wants to say sorry because she forgot who apollo is even though he promise 12k years ago that he will remember her smell. And also i think Zessica is the reincarnation of Celiane(on how she is attracted to Amata.). If Mykage is looking for Aquarion ( which makes him not Toma ) then that means Amata is Aquarion because he couldve just dig his way underground if Aquarion was under Neo-Deava.

            Close enough.Aquarion of Aquarion Evol is different from the real Aquarion because its not the true Aquarion. Aquarion has been long gone and became the life of Vega, So technically speaking , Aquarion is history. But Zen Fudo knows something about it. I think Amata is Aquarion when in episode 3 when he tries to get rid of the feathers on his wins Aquarion peeked in the window. And also Aquarion in the original series has the Solar Wings not APOLLO so please dont say Apollo has it. It was Aquarion. So if Amata has the Solar Wings that means Kagura (if ever he is Apollo) has only the body and maybe the memories but no the power and soul of Apollonius.

          • Whatsht
            Posted April 20, 2012 at 11:54 pm | Permalink

            Amata should be Aquarion, but the problem with Amata is that the memories we see in episode 3 and the subsequent flashbacks by Amata doesn’t match up. Aquarion was missing. Evol was one appearing outside his windows.

            Aquarion isn’t gone, just sleeping under the surface, holding the planet together. Aquarion didn’t become the life of Vega, but rather, it replaced the Tree of Life that was previously holding the energy of the planet, preventing it from destroying the planet.

            Yur right the memories don’t fit in. But Izumo might know something. remember he mumbled about “he” the flying boy about piloting the Aquarion. maybe Amata is a threat or maybe more to izumo and Amata has the wings otherwise the writers and animators didnt put it in the opening. also ever wander why Schrade is so “obsess” on piloting Aquarion? he could be Touma??

            Posted April 21, 2012 at 4:59 am | Permalink

            I rewatched the memories and found out that, during the part where Alicia was “taken away” by the Aquarion, Aquarion was doing this.. movement, Alicia does the exact same movement in the beginning of the first opening.

    • whatsht
      Posted April 21, 2012 at 11:30 pm | Permalink

      Possible, since the original Aquarion had a part of Apollonius in it, Evol could have Alicia’s soul.

      • Ryze
        Posted April 22, 2012 at 1:59 am | Permalink

        Mykage tried to kill the unconscious Alicia but Izumo stopped him. That means her soul is not a part of Evol. If it is why did Mykage tried to kill her if shes still useful. I think that Schrade is Toma??? His so obsess with Evol. i think in the last episode Schrade Amata and Kagura will fight together like what Toma Apollo and Sirius did. I also dont think Kagura is Apollo. If he’s Apollo then Mikono fell in love with him but no. She’s inlove with Amata. Kagura my guess is Sirius’ reincarnation and Mykono wants to say sorry to him because she thought once that he is the wings and thats why sirius joined the shadow angels.

            In episode 13, Mykage said that Fudo’s hope vanished in the void. He is referring to Aquarion( the first one ) then he asked about where is the Solar Wings and Fudo just smiled. hinting that Fudo know the location of the wings and Mykage doesn’t know about it.
