Format: Paperback
"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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just want to say that I am very happy that they did have this compilation made so I did not have to buy separate volumes from 1 to 3. And it also costs only around $15!

So far, some events in this manga are different than the Anime Series w/c I believe is really great since I would easily get bored of the manga since I've watched most of the series. I really don't think that Eureka Seven is actually a "Mech" series but I think its really more of a love story and the general adventure kind of thing.

Thanks again Amazon! I will be ordering the Volume 2 compilation when you guys have it!
