Apparently, the impossible can be achieved – long ago, Aquarion EVOL felt as if it were a three-ring circus, now however, it’s by far the most intense series of the season, and it didn’t even debut this season.
Generalized arbitrary comparisons aside however, Aquarion EVOL is truly exploding with vigor – for the longest time, the anime felt as if it were indeed progressing, but remained bottling everything up plot-wise. Yet in respect to these last few episodes, and this one especially, everything simply erupts high into the inter-galactic skies. Aquarion EVOL has indeed become legendary, or at least more so than was originally – and anyone following the anime should know why.
Initiate 20th episode – the girls are idling. Our invisible loli and the provocative dresser known as “Zessica” sit, gradually feeling themselves wearing out in strength, merely twiddling in wait for the men of their team who have ventured out into the planet of Altair to make their return so all can escape home. Unfortunately, effortless is something it will not be – Andy is imprisoned and obsessed with Mix, Shrade is being morbid again, and our protagonist is yelling for his mother in a vast room with a spiraling staircase.
Focusing on the characters one by one, Amata receives an explanation behind much of the situation from Izumo, the head of Altair. To little surprise, Amata is in a fit, whining and complaining like a child as his mother is entrapped within some sort of device which likely preserves individuals – yet Izumo remains collected, clearly feeling concerned with the matter, sympathizing with Amata, and upset about the way everything had to play out.
He tells Amata of “The curse of Eve” – which essentially summarizes to this; the females of Altair are unable to bear children on the planet. Yet the curse is far more vile than simply that – “Iguras”, or regular girls, will transform into males if they stay too long on Altair. For that reason, “Rare Iguras” are necessary – though the greatest of such, the mother of Amata, didn’t have the strength to save the planet either. Thus basically, all hope is lost for the planet of Altair. Every citizen of the planet shall die a lonely male unless they leave for new land.
Izumo wanted to share something about Amata’s father with him as well – yet the situation gets messy, and Amata is forced to evacuate with his crew.
The Elements managed to regroup as result of Shrade’s intellectual scheming and seeming ever-present death wish – Andy managed to break out of his confinement in a crazed search for Mix, where he then was picked up by Shrade, who is being accompanied by Zessica and the invisible loli. As one might have noticed, there’s one missing however, Amata – and that’s as he’s rescued later on as aforementioned.
When the team is back together, there is one significant point of issue – Andy is going crazy over his missing lover, Mix, and Amata, with his newly gained knowledge, knows what exactly happened to her. Mix has become a flat chested feminine man – now referring to himself as “Mixy”, as if the addition of the letter “Y” makes it sound more masculine.
In any case, if one wants to look for the solution to that peculiar and tragic situation, one should actually not look towards any of the more combat-oriented Elements – but instead, the imouto fetish character Mikono who ran away like a coward only a short time earlier. She’s supposedly done running away – or so does she say. She’s managed to find Fudo, who was stalking her the entire time – and then Fudo goes on to elaborately describe to her the philosophy of donuts, as well as how he’s lived for 24,000 years.
There’s likely some story relevance in Fudo’s senile statements – though this man’s obscurity is top-class, incidentally however, so is his entertainment ability, thus no complaints exist, only praise and wishes for more. What truly tells us of the events to soon unfold is the next episode preview, as well as a very short scene near the end of the episode – starting with the latter, the red dog man will make his reappearance, and as for the more interesting former, we’re shown that Mikono will be fitted in Fudo gear next episode.
Perhaps Fudo has passed on his title to Mikono, or perhaps he simply put her in charge instead – though regardless, the sight of Mikono in Fudo’s signature garbs certainly means something colossal in precedence has gone down. And it’s not that Mikono is in a playful cosplay gag-mode or something either – she legitimately looks to have taken Fudo’s place as she’s smiling whilst performing some sort of mantra one would expect to see from Fudo.
Our patience is sparkling and sizzling in pain, as unfortunately, there’s an excruciating seven day span of wait till the consequent chapter of Aquarion EVOL arrives for all to indulge in.
