Editorial Reviews

Eureka Seven tells the story of a young boy named Renton, whose life just plain sucks. That is until a giant robot crashes into his house. Piloted by a girl named Eureka, this encounter will lead Renton to be pursued by the military and pulled into a web of drama, intrigue, and non-stop action. Renton's time to daydream is over! The #1 Show in Japan, from Studio Bones. Genre: Action/Sci-fi/Mecha.

Customer Reviews

The dvd collection that i have is completed with this dvd set.
Adam
As for the story surrounding these characters, that's pretty good as well, at least from what I saw so far.
Antonio D. Paolucci
While enjoyable, there are slow episodes and the plot develops quite slowly as well.

Eureka Seven is one of those series that appears to wanna emulate some aspect of pop culture. The choice here is apparently surfing, but in this anime it's obvious of a different kind. The series character names are taken or derived from the world of surfing, rock, and others taking in the era's from the fifties to today. Some are surfing related like Gidget and Moondoggie, and some indicate more the professions, like Jobs , and Woz (Steve Jobs, and Steve Wozniac founded Apple Computer), who play engineers.

The plot is a bit far fetched, but interesting none the less. Man has colonized a planet at some point in the past, and there are environmental issues. The steps he has taken to correct those may be making the situation worse. There are other things at work here, but I don't want to spoil the series for you. This however is not for the impatient. While enjoyable, there are slow episodes and the plot develops quite slowly as well. If you are good at putting together hints you may arrive at some conclusions earlier. Not much of the back story is revealed in any particular episode, until you get to episode 29 when a major piece is filled in.

That's probably a good thing because it takes that long for the two focal characters to come to terms with who they are. Initially, I too felt impatient about the wait for this much of the plot to develop. I changed my mind about that after thinking about it some. There are a lot of anime series out there about boy mecha pilots (what is it the Japanese have with 14 year olds piloting these things). Most don't give the leads much justification, beyond simple protection, and sometimes revenge to take the controls.

(Because of a mistake made by Amazon.com, this review was also posted for the regular edition of the first volume of Eureka Seven. Please disregard the review of the box set, as that was what I was originally reviewing.)

I don't know what got into me when I purchased this set from Amazon.com. I'm usually never lolled in by Special Edition sets unless it has a box to contain all the discs in the series. Beyond that, I'm not too interested; all I care about is the anime. But I bought this box set on a hunch (though I was looking at the collector's box at the time, to be sure). Something told me that Eureka Seven wasn't to be underestimated as the next big series. And after I watched the first disc, I'm completely sure I was right. If marketed correctly, Eureka Seven should take the place of Fullmetal Alchemist when they finally complete their DVD release run.

In truth, I'm not really here to talk about the series, but this box set in particular. As the title says, this box is filled to the brim and running over. Not only does it have the first disc and a collector's case, but it has the soundtrack, which as of the time of this writing has yet to be released, the first volume of the manga series, and for all of you fan-boys and -girls, a t-shirt as well. And I will say that nothing here left me disappointed (except for maybe the shirt, as I'll probably never wear it, but either way it was free). The shear value of this set is what makes it great. Consider this: most special edition sets with collector's boxes market for about $30; the Eureka Seven soundtrack will go for $20; the manga will sell for $10; and the shirt will probably go for somewhere around $15. Added all up, that equals a value of around $75. Yet you get all of this for only $45.

I've had mixed feelings about Studio Bones in the past. Cowboy Bebop had the style, the characters, the music, the atmosphere, and way too much violence. Rahxephon was a trip worth taking, but a trip none the less. Wolf's Rain was a garbled mess despite fantastic art, music, and story (I attribute that to just plain bad direction). Now THIS...this is something TOTALLY different.

Anyone remember the funky music and atmosphere of Jet Set Radio (not to mention that crazy-cool art sytle)? What about the sweet character designs of FLCL (and it's slick soundtrack)? Okay, now remember the feeling you'd get when you saw something just plain awesome in one of those Mecha sagas like Macross? Stir it all up in the anime blender and you get something...like THIS.

Just trying to describe the universe of this series is very hard to do. It's a sci-fi world unlike any other. Most people go about their lives on a planet where energy currents flow underground and through the skies (leaving glowing colors in their wake). People ride these currents on futuristic surfboards and (you guessed it) Giant Robots. (: Of course, the robot designs are by Shoji Kawamori, so of COURSE they transform :)

The plot is hard to describe because it's kind of hidden from the start. We get the generic pathetic kid wants to escape his boring reality and finds himself thrown into high adventure with a mysterious young woman leading the way, but naturally that's just an excuse to get things started. The real story involves aliens, the past, the main character Renton's lost family, and the secret of who exactly that strange girl Eureka is. Naturally we won't get into any of that for a while though.
