Sousei no Aquarion

English Title : Genesis of Aquarion
Directed by Shoji Kawamori

Episode 1-26(end)
Genre :
Science Fiction, Drama, Comedy, Romance
Themes : Mecha
Plot :
In a distant future, humanity once again is facing the threat of the "Shadow Angels". Mystical creatures who returned after 12.000 years of absence. They attack human cities and kidnap their inhabitants in order to drain their "prana" (vital energy). To fight against them, youngsters with special powers from around the world were gathered and trained to pilot the "vector machines", three ancient ships that together form mankind's ultimate weapon, "Aquarion". The story revolves mainly around Apollo, a teenager rumored as the reincarnation of Apollonius, a fallen angel who fought against his own kind to protect mankind. Few believe it could be true, but the fact is that despite his untamed and reckless nature, he proved to be an invaluable asset in the battle against the Shadow Angels.

The Chacters / Element Users : ( I only list down the very very main ones)

Youngsters with special powers gathered from around the world and trained by Deava in order to pilot the Vector Machines.

Apollo

Voiced by: Takuma Terashima
The main protagonist. Apollo is an orphan that has grown up in a group of homeless children. His name was given to him by his best friend Baron, who acted like an older brother to him for most of his life. Apollo possesses a kind heart and a noble spirit behind his rude, aggressive and bestial behavior. He has very sharp reflexes and senses, similar to an animal. His characteristics cause few to believe the rumor that he is the reincarnation of Apollonius, also called the "Solar Wing".

Apollo gradually learns and acquires new talents, as well as showing his amazing ability to pilot the Aquarion. Eventually it is found that he is only part of Apollonius' soul, and in the last episode he sacrifices himself, along with Toma and Sirius, to restore the world. However, he promises Silvia that he'll be back in 12,000 years, although it's never explained precisely why that time in particular.

Silvia de Alisia

Voiced by: Yumi Kakazu
The female protagonist. A noble from the Alisia family and a reincarnation of Apollonius's human lover Celiane, she possesses great physical strength and a great admiration for her older brother, who she thinks he is the real reincarnation of the "Solar Wing". She always argues with Apollo, not only because she thinks he is an impostor, but also because of his rude habits and untamed nature. She has dreams of Celiane's past.

For much of the series she acts like a brat, always hanging off her brother and attempting to sabotage his romantic relationships. But as the story progresses, she starts to develop strong feelings for Apollo. We also discover that she has the "light" half of Celiane's soul, while her brother has the "dark" half; this explains her jealous crush on him. In the final episode, she bids farewell to Apollo as he sacrifices himself, but knows he will return someday.

Sirius de Alisia

Voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita
Silvia's older brother. Obsessed with his own concepts of aesthetics and perfection, he is also a great swordsman. Many people, including Sirius himself, believe that he is the true reincarnation of the "Solar Wing", and thus Sirius despises Apollo. Despite his love for his sister, Sirius is often annoyed with her because her adoration of him involves romantic love, and she jealously tries to sabotage his potential relationship with Reika.

As it becomes more obvious that Apollo is the true "Solar Wing", his jealousy consumes his mind, eventually provoking him to take drastic measures. He attempts to stop Silvia from helping Apollo, and subsequently finds out that he is also the reincarnation of Celiane -- but the dark side of her soul. Sirius redeems himself when, along with Toma and Apollo, he sacrifices himself to save the world.

Hong Lihua

Voiced by: Sanae Kobayashi
Best known as Reika. She is a sensitive girl who has the strange ability of causing misfortune to those around her. This causes most people to avoid approaching her, with the exception of Sirius who nurtures strong feelings for her and spends many episodes attempting to connect with her. Reika tries to avoid contact with people in general because she believes that her misfortune caused an accident that put her boyfriend Glen in a coma. However, Reika eventually manages to overcome her rotten luck and turn it into a weapon.

Pierre Vieira

Voiced by: Masaya Onosaka
A soccer star player, he is by far the most hyperactive of the Element Users, with more than the double of serotonin levels than any of the rest. Always trying to flirt with Deava's female residents, Pierre hides the pain of a lost love from the past, whom he abandoned in order to join the fight against the Shadow Angels. His "Fire Kick" attack is a perfect combination of his passion for soccer and his burning spirit.

Despite his teasing and flirtatiousness, Pierre is among the most clear-sighted Element Users, able to see attractions and fears in more conflicted individuals like Silvia and Apollo. He can also be very kind, as in his behavior toward Reika. At the end of the series, he helps Reika defeat the Angels.

The Mecha :

In the process of Unity, the Vectors combine to form the humanoid of Aquarion, with the head being the leading section. The unification process also merges the souls of the Elements to some degree, as each supplies one of the supposed three aspects of their soul which unite into one soul when Aquarion is formed. During unification, the Elements seem to experience something very similar to an orgasm. The three-part jet to robot combination mechanic is similar to that used in Getter Robo.

Aquarion -

Solar Aquarion;
Corresponds to Vector Sol as the head part. The most balanced of the three basic Aquarion forms, its specialty is barehanded combat and is the only one that can manifest the "Solar Wings" on its back. Later in the series it develops the "Mugen (infinity) Punch", a punch where the arm extends indefinitely in order to reach even the most agile enemy and "Mugen Binta" an attack that starts off appearing as Mugen Punch but turns into a quick slapped used against a shadow angel child causing chaos and destruction. A form almost always used by Apollo.
Aquarion Luna;
Corresponds to Vector Luna as the head part. Specialized in range combat, contains a giant bow and arrows. Mostly used by Reika and Silvia.
Aquarion Mars;
Corresponds to Vector Mars as the head part. The fastest of the basic Aquarion forms. It's Sirius's favorite because it can wield a sword, and also Pierre's, because due to its long legs and great speed, it is perfect for his "Fire Kick" attack.

Secondary Forms :
There are other forms which appear in special situations:

Aquarion Soluna

Appears in episode 13 only. After the Solar Aquarion lost its arms and was separated, Reika/Tsugumi/Pierre united to form this Aquarion. It is essentially Solar Aquarion, except that the back part, Vector Luna, flipped forward and became the upper body on top of Vector Sol, making a leg/stomach/head formation. It's assumed that this is the tallest of Aquarion's forms because of this.

Aquarion Angel

An Aquarion formed by the union of Vector Sol, Vector Luna and Military Vector Omega, where Omega takes the position of the head. It's assumed that it retains all of Aquarion Mars' abilities.

Assault Type Aquarion

Assault Type Aquarion, a copy of the original Aquarion, which was constructed in a joint operation between DEAVA and the New United Nations. It follows the same basic architecture of the original with a couple differences and uses conventional weaponry, cannons and rockets, as opposed to the original's more traditional weapons, it's also colored mostly grey. The Assault Type Aquarion needs only one pilot, the other two corresponding Vectors are AI controlled, has six different forms and is made up of Vectors named Alpha, which corresponds with Vector Sol, Delta, which corresponds with Vector Luna, and Omega, which corresponds with Vector Mars.

Aquarion Alpha

Corresponds with Vector Alpha as the head and is the equivalent of the Solar Aquarion. Uses an enormous PSG Cannon as a weapon opposed to its fists. Like Solar Aquarion it can deploy "Solar Wings" on its back but does not have the mystical effect of the originals. Unlike Solar Aquarion it's assumed to not have infinitely extending fists. Its head is, oddly enough, shaped like Aquarion Luna's and has a visor over its eyes. This form can transform into Walker Formation without separating and reuniting.

Aquarion Delta

Corresponds with Vector Delta as the head and is the equivalent of Aquarion Luna. Specializes in extra-long range combat through the use of rockets which fire out of "Vector Luna's bow". Can also use Aquarion Omega's machine guns, which are mounted on the same part as the rockets.

Aquarion Omega

Corresponds with Vector Omega as the head and is the equivalent of Aquarion Mars. Uses twin machine guns as its primary weapon. This form is only featured once and it can be assumed that it can transform into Armageddon Formation without separating and reuniting.

Armageddon Formation

A formation where the three Military Vectors combine into a 6-legged walker with Aquarion Alpha's PSG cannon mounted on top similar to a tank. This formation probably exists because the PSG Cannon can only fire at maximum power with a stable footing on the ground. This form can transform immediately into Aquarion Omega without separating and reuniting.

Walker Formation

A vehicle formation used for speed. For the short time it appears it can be described as a jet-like machine with two legs. This form can transform into Aquarion Alpha without separating and reuniting.

Unknown Formation

Though a sixth formation for the Military Aquarion hasn't been seen in the anime series clearly there are several short shots of it during the final battle

Shadow Angel Mecha

Cherubim Mars

After joining the Shadow Angels and taking Vector Mars, Sirius uses a Cherubim in place of the other two vectors. It acts the same as Aquarion Mars, but if it's beaten, another Cherubim can take its place, so it can keep fighting.

Sumanai >_< explain =".=" so =".=" style="font-weight: bold;font-size:130%;">HILARIOUS *burst out laughing*.

Okay there's this process called Unification. More details up up up ^. When they're doing it, it's like they're going through orgasm :O. They'd feel extremely comfortable and will let out slight moans in a sense of excitement xD. Gosh that's turning me on HAHAHAH!

This show also reminds me of some Greek Myth thingy thingy~ Cause of the shadow angels' past, appearance, way of living, etc. And the Tree of Life(Seimei no Ki). And also the word Apollonius xD.

I feel like watching again =.= currently into Macross Frontier XD.

Sousei no Aquarion LYRICS~~
Romaji Lyrics :D
Sekai no hajimari no hi
inochi no ki no shita de
Kujira-tachi no koe no
tooi zankyou futari de kiita
Nakushita mono subete
Aishita mono subete
Kono te ni dakishimete
Ima wa doko wo samayoi iku no

Kotae no hisomu kohaku no taiyou
Deawana kereba satsuriku no tenshi de irareta
Fushinaru matataki motsu tamashii
Kizutsukanaide boku no Hane
Kono kimochi shiru tame umarete kita

Ichimannen to nisennen mae kara aishiteru
Hassennen sugita koro kara motto koishikunatta
Ichioku to nisennen ato mo aishiteru
Kimi wo shitta sono hi kara boku no jigoku ni ongaku wa taenai

Sekai ga owaru mae ni
Inochi ga owaru mae ni
Nemuru nageki hodoite
Kimi no kaori dakishimetai yo

Mimisumaseta wadatsumi no kioku
Shitsui ni no mare tachi tsukusu uruwashiki tsuki
Yomigaere towa ni karenu hikari
Yogosarenai de kimi no yume
Inori yadoshinagara umaretekita

Ichimannen to nisennen mae kara aishiteru
Hassennen sugita koro kara motto koishikunatta
Ichioku to nisennen ato mo aishiteru
Kimi wo shitta sono hi kara boku no jigoku ni ongaku wa taenai

Kimi ga kurikaeshi otona ni natte
Nandomo nandomo tooku he itte
Mimamoru boku ga nemurenai boku ga kushya kushya ni natta to shitemo

Kimi no na wo utau tame ni...

Ichimannen to nisennen mae kara aishiteru
Hassennen sugita koro kara motto koishikunatta
Ichioku to nisennen ato mo aishiteru
Kimi wo shitta sono hi kara

Ichimannen to nisennen mae kara aishiteru
Hassennen sugita koro kara motto koishikunatta
Ichioku to nisennen tatte mo aishiteru
Kimi wo shitta sono hi kara boku no jigoku ni ongaku wa taenai

English Translation :
On the day the world begin, beneath the tree of life
We two heard the distant echoes of the whales' voices

All the things I've lost, all the things I've loved
Embraced in these hands, where do they wander now?

The answers lie hidden the the amber sun
Had I not met you, I could not be an angel of slaughter
The glittering souls that wait become immortal
Don't hurt my wings
I came into being to know this feeling

I've loved you since ten thousand years ago and two thousand more
After about eight thousand years had passed, you became more dear
I'll still love you after a hundred million years and two thousand more
Since the day I knew you the music has not died out in my hell

Before the world ends, before my life ends
Letting go of sleeping pride, I want to embrace your fragrance

The memories of the sea god ended in my ears
The beautiful moon stands still, drowning in disappointment
Revive the light dried up in eternity
Don't stain your dreams
I came into being to carry these prayers

I've loved you since ten thousand years ago and two thousand more
After about eight thousand years had passed, you became more dear
I'll still love you after a hundred million years and two thousand more
Since the day I knew you the music has not died out in my hell

You repeatedly become an adult
No matter how many times, how many times, you go far away
I watch over you, I can't sleep, even if I become disheartened
So that I may sing in your name...

I've loved you since ten thousand years ago and two thousand more
After about eight thousand years had passed, you became more dear
I'll still love you after a hundred million years and two thousand more
Since the day I knew you
I've loved you since ten thousand years ago and two thousand more
After about eight thousand years had passed, you became more dear
I'll still love you after a hundred million years and two thousand more pass by
Since the day I knew you the music has not died out in my hell

You’re so cool! I don’t think I’ve read anything like this before. So good to find somebody with some original thoughts on this subject. Thanks for starting this up. This blog is something that is needed on the web, someone with a little originality. Good job for bringing something new to the internet! I just ordered these consoles at PIJ! I’m excited! I’m going to have these in week! http://bit.ly/Aquarion
