Eureka Seven

Posted on: August 27, 2007

so i spent 3 days (there goes my weekend) watching 50 episodes of the anime titled “Eureka Seven“. it was worth it. good plot, great character development, a series that blends humor, drama, romance and a bit of horror as well into a nice package. oh, did i mention the artwork is pretty cool too?

quote:

Eureka Seven centers around Renton Thurston, the fourteen-year-old son of Adrock Thurston, a military researcher who died saving the world. He lives what he considers a boring life with his mechanic grandfather in a boring town. He loves lifting, a sport similar to surfing but with air as the medium. He dreams of joining the renegade group Gekkostate, led by his idol Holland, a legendary lifter.

An opportunity to do so literally falls into his lap when a large mechanical robot, called the Nirvash typeZERO, and Eureka, a member of Gekkostate, crash into Renton’s room. Renton’s grandfather orders him to deliver a special part to the Nirvash, which reveals the immense power dormant within the typeZERO. Afterwards, Renton is invited to join Gekkostate, where he quickly discovers that the behind-the-scenes life of Gekkostate is hardly as glamorous or as interesting as printed in the glossy pages of their magazine, ray=out. Only one thing makes it all worthwhile for him: the presence of Eureka, the mysterious pilot of the Nirvash.

an interstellar love story, definitely. this show won some awards in 2006. if you’ve ever seen and enjoyed Evangelion, then don’t pass this one up. it’s so much better and more rewarding. Eureka Seven kept me yearning for more till the end and then some.

i wish they’ll make more animes like these.
