What I am trying to convey is that Eureka Seven AO never really knows what kind of series it wants to be. It introduces a lot of ideas, but only the handful ideas that are actually used are poorly executed.
Does it want to be a sequel or completely original and does it want to be episodic or not? From one episode to another the direction of the series may have completely changed for no reason, which comes off as really bad storytelling.
It feels stressed and is a big letdown, because if Eureka Seven AO had only focused on some of these ideas, and done it well, it could have been pretty good. But as it is right now, it lacks its own identity.
