Hm… I’m not exactly sure what stores would sell that sort of thing since I’ve never tried making a plugsuit before. Maybe a party/Halloween store, but that’s probably fairly cheap quality. It’d probably be better to ask cosplayers who’ve made Anemone’s plugsuit before than me. ^^; EclecticManiac and YumiYangire made some good ones (I think I recommended them last time).
Perhaps followers could help out? If you’ve had experience working on a plugsuit before, where/what would you all recommend?

Naru was on the side that the Scab Corals were not threatening and wanted to co-exist with the people of their universe. This was important to her as once she got rid of her inhaler and concentrated on the Scabs not being a threat to her body, her breathing became a lot easier. The Secrets, to her, were the real threat who just wanted to eliminate the Scabs.
Nakamura and the JAF, however, saw the Secrets as allies as they aimed to chase the ‘harmful’ Scabs out of AO’s world as according to Johansson’s theory.
This was the divide in theories, which was somewhat reminiscent of the divided views in the original series. Naru represented a faction of humanity who didn’t believe that the Scabs were murderous, and she was able to lead these people (ie the protesters who were against the JAF’s plans to ally with the Secrets). It gave their viewpoint grounding and proof. If Naru had not existed in AO, Truth also would not have had much grounding as a villain because he wasn’t sure exactly what he was until later in the show (ie he was willing to attack both Secrets and Scabs because he didn’t really care so long as it led him to the truth).
Potentially Quartz!Eureka could have explained all of this to Ao of course, but her mindset was that the Scabs too had to get out of Ao’s world because an increased amount of them would bring more trapar and ultimately kill her son. The Scabs did not intend it of course, but genetics was the issue. If Eureka told Ao not to harm the Scabs, it wouldn’t have made sense as regards to her plan to keep her son safe.
Ao was also very conflicted between the words of his mother and what Naru was saying, because both of these were very different points. Therefore, Naru’s perspective added an element of emotional confusion for Ao. Two of the closest people in his life were telling him different things. These also aided in Ao realizing that he shouldn’t have been looking for an enemy in the end between Secrets and Scabs. He felt like he had to choose because he was struggling with these different perspectives and was working for Generation Bleu to defeat Secrets. But in the end he chose something different after much consideration. In the final episode as well, Naru’s view and condition greatly influenced Ao’s decision to send the Secrets away from his world. This is because to simply get rid of all Scabs would mean that many of the people with Scabs inside them in this universe would likely disappear. He was not willing to take this risk.
Tldr; Naru was important because her viewpoint represented the Scabs as unharmful, and this created a difference in perspectives between Ao’s childhood friend, his mother, Generation Bleu and the Allied Forces. If Truth alone was the villain, he would have been floundering for a good amount of episodes as he was willing to destroy both Secrets and Scabs. This is because he didn’t know his identity, and was searching for the ‘truth’ of it. So, I do think the story would have been different and probably a little bit weak without her (or a character like her).
No problem! c: Glad you liked them!
Going through some old stuff I posted on twitter before. These are Eureka Seven AO character sheets published in… one of the Animedia issues, IIRC.
Woah, yes. I can’t remember details but I’m sure it was nice to argue/discuss AO xD
Discussing was fun, so long as people didn’t get snippy o’ course ahah.
But man it was a lot, pfft.
