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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

I couldn't get into this. The dialogue was immature while at the same time having a Neon Genesis Evangelion vibe to it. Except the fighting robots surfed airwaves. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Nicola Mansfield

Great read and a must have for any collection
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! Read morePublished on December 23, 2009 by Gil Farrales
