Maia: We're going to release humans from the wedge called "letters." A world where people connect heart-to-heart is our utopia.
Text on passersby: Person
Text on scenery: Building, tree
Text from book: Sōsei
Text on screen: Sōsei
Akira: I was waiting for this time! I'm going to save it...! With these hands!
Maia: This is different from the time with Subete! This is the first time for something like this...! It feels so good!!
Akira: Sōsei fusion! Scream!
Both: Aquarion!!

* Sōsei, literally the "voice of creation," is a newly coined term, and it is different from the "Sōsei" (Genesis) in the Japanese title of the first Aquarion anime.

Text: The beginning of a new myth…
Text: Two souls, crossing space-time and meeting
Text: Sōsei no Aquarion vs. Aquarion Evol
Text: I… don't want to see… your tears anymore.

Sōsei no Aquarion Love is set in the spring of 1966. Shin Tsukishima, who is travelling to get a crystal radio, meets Yuno Kawazu, a girl crying on a beach in Izu. Shin and Yuno are guided by the Book of Genesis and meet each other halfway. The boundaries between three worlds begin to distort.

At the Neo Diva Academy, Amata and other Element candidates reassemble to prepare for a new battle. When souls that transcend dimensions gather, a new myth flows through the skies of Showa-era Japan.

Several cast members from Sōsei no Aquarion and Sōsei no Aquarion EVOL are reuniting for Sōsei no Aquarion Love, although some have different character names:

A 10th Anniversary stage play, Hito Natsu no Aquarion (One Summer's Aquarion), will open in Japan as the second of "The Fool" hybrid live theater entertainment projects, after Nobunaga The Fool. An Aquarion 10th Anniversary event will be held on June 28 at Tokyo's Shibuya Kōkaido. The cast from all three Aquarion television anime will appear, and AKINO with bless4 will perform a special live stage concert. In addition, two free Aquarion exhibitions will run in Tokyo's Suginami Animation Museum from May 27 to June 19 and from July 18 to September 27.

The Aquarion Evol Blu-ray Box will go on sale on June 24 with new packaging art, drama CD, artbook, a compiled volume of the previous BLu-ray Disc booklets, and about 103 minutes of bonus video extras.
So yeah, quite alot of information got revealed. A new anime series that's probably not in the same continuity as the first 2 seasons, an OVA that crosses over the casts of the first 2 seasons and a stage play that's part of the same series of stage plays as Nobunaga The Fool. As for me, I'm excited, though somewhat anxious about the 3rd season possibly being in a separate continuity. But otherwise, I'm still excited for Aquarion Logos.
