Eureka Seven Volume 1 isn't a bad manga: it contains good artwork and a solid translation. What brings it down is the anime counterpart which it is based off of. For whatever inexplicable reason, the manga feels weighted down with the task of outdoing the original it is trying to recreate as a graphic novel. It follows the anime somewhat closely in the beginning and thus, it is "more of the same." Generally, I don't have a problem with getting more of the same of a series that I greatly enjoy. But there is an odd feel to this manga, and, unfortunately, it comes across as a lesser series in this first installment.

Enter Renton Thurston, our 14-year-old protagonist who is the grandson of a mechanic and lives in a boring city where his only means of enjoyment is "lifting," surfing in the air on "trapar" (transparent light particles). A beautiful girl who goes by the name of Eureka crashes into his house while surfing on a special LFO (light finding operation--basically a gigantic mecha that can also ride the trapar with the assistance of a surfboard). She asks them to help repair the Nirvash (the LFO's name). Renton falls in love with Eureka at a glance and so, when she leaves for battle alone as a military attack ensues their meeting, he leaves his grandfather in order to help her by giving the Nirvash its missing component--the Amita Drive. The battle ends in a surprising fashion and it is revealed that Eureka is a member of "Gekkostate," a group of radicals fighting the government whom Renton idolizes. And so the chapter closes with Renton being asked if he is willing to join Gekkostate and stay with them on their airship, Moonlight. Needless to say, he accepts their offer and his adventure begins.

That is the premise of the Eureka Seven.

Format: Paperback
Young Renton is sick of his life in a do nothing town, slaving away for his cranky mechanic grandpa. The only joy he gets is riding his ref board, a device used to surf the trapar winds, energy waves in the air. He dreams of joining Gekkostate, a rebel organization that lives to defy the official city governments. Not only are they a bastion of counter-culture, they are also a symbol to the young to go against the system and live their lives on their own terms. Of course, the government's main priority is to crush them. That's what they're in the course of doing when a mecha, called an "LFO", crashlands on Renton's home! Once he gets over the initial shock, his emotions run the other way, when a strange but beautiful looking young girl named Eureka steps out of its hatch. Renton is instantly a slave of love! The forces of Gekkostate have come to Renton's grandfather in search of a device called an "Amita Drive" which grants an LFO incredible powers and was created by Renton's dad, who is currently missing and presumed dead after saving the world. Will Renton's dreams finally be fulfilled even as he falls deeper in love and gets a reality check when he meets the rest of the Gekko's crew?

This first volume of the manga Eureka Seven is based on the anime of the same name and serves as pretty much a summary of the first DVD volume. That doesn't make it bad. I really liked the anime and found the manga just as enjoyable. Some plot points are cut short and some are added so you get a different experience here. The concern of Volume 1 is really about Renton getting his dream of joining Gekko State to come true, but finding that the dream leaves a bit to be desired as he becomes the whipping boy of the Moonlight's crew.

"Eureka Seven", the popular mecha anime TV series from Bones has spawned a video games, novels and a movie. But the animated series also was adapted into a manga series which ran in Kadokawa Shoten's "Monthly Shonen Ace" from 2005-2006 with a total of 23 chapters.

As the anime series was a big hit in the US airing on the Cartoon Network's "Adult Swim", the six volume manga series was previously released in the US. But with the new "Eureka Seven" film released in US theaters in Sept. 2009 and an upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release for the film set for 2010, there is renewed interest in the series. Fortunately, for those who are not familiar with the anime series will be happy to know that Bandai Entertainment
has released the first three manga volumes (11 chapters) in one oversized collection. The content is nearly the same as the previous manga series which featured black and white artwork but also features nine colorized pages exclusive to this manga collection.

"Eureka Seven" revolves around a boy named Renton Thurston, a young 14-year-old who is brash and tends to enjoy living for the moment. His hobby is grabbing his lift board (somewhat like a surf or skateboard but is used for floating in the air) and just riding it and having fun. Renton, also happens to be the son of the late military hero Adroc Thurston and the grandson of famous scientist Axel Thurston. But unlike them, Renton is not into studying nor does he have any career ambitions, he's just a boy who idolizes Ray-Out Magazine's Holland Novak, a professional lift board rider.

One day, a mecha (an LFO known as Nirvash typeZERO - the world's first humanoid mobile machine - Light Finding Operation) crashes near his home and inside it comes out a girl who piloted it.
