Eureka SeveN Volume 7 with Artbox, Original Soundtrack II, Manga Vol 5 and T-Shirt
As Eureka Seven continues into its second season, the story grows more complicated and the threats more dire. Renton finds himself torn by conflicting loyalties as Ray and Charles attack the Gekkostate, hoping to capture Eureka. Holland and Talho, who share a past with the invaders, organize a hi-tech defense that carries the day, but at a terrible price. The traumatized Renton learns that Eureka's origins are stranger and her significance greater than anything he had imagined. Holland built the Gekkostate to protect her. Yet Renton was the one she chose, and under their influence, the mecha Nervash is evolving rapidly. When Holland takes the Gekkostate to the secret Tresor Laboratory for repairs, Renton discovers his father, grandfather, and sister all have ties there. The filmmakers keep the story moving briskly, but the later episodes of Eureka Seven feel very different in tone than the more light-hearted first installments. (Unrated, suitable for ages 12 and older: violence, grotesque imagery, brief nudity, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

This series has been amazing, and I've enjoyed watching every episode so far. This volume begins a new story arc immediately after Renton returns to the Gekko in Episode #26, "Morning Glory".
The action is intense in episodes 27 and 28 when we see the crew of the Gekko take their stand in order to protect Renton and Eureka from Charles and Ray Beams. The dialog in those two episodes also brings out the differences between Charles Beams and Holland as well as the divergence in the choices they made years ago.
In Episode #29, we see Renton and Eureka attempt to keep on moving and interact with the crew in such a way that it keeps people on the ship moving forward. Toward the end, things are mentioned that explain to Renton why things are the way they are and why Gekkostate exists. Even though there isn't any action in #29 or #30, these two episodes display one of the greatest strengths of this series, the incredible dialog and character development.
There's one other point that makes this series really stand out as a whole and the thirtieth episode, "Change of Life", in particular. This is a series with great animation, action, music, dialog, and character development. There's something more however. This is one that will make the viewer think, and may even inspire the viewer. To this end, I will leave the reader of this review with this experience.
Sunday, December 9, 2007 I was responsible for the Communion meditation at church. I had shortened Eureka's quote, "It's alright for you(Nirvash) to change too, just like me." to simply "It's alright to change." That evening I was a little late to the meal preceding the worship service because I had it in mind to watch the last ten minutes of "Change of Life", and then I began typing my Communion meditation. The meditation was centered around the idea that Christianity is a dynamic religion and I detailed scriptural stories that recounted people who were changed by their encounters with Christ, and I mentioned how Christ's sacrifice entailed a very change in the way that people were able to encounter God. I mentioned that when we take Communion we remember the sacrifice that gives us reason to change our lives and that enables us to be changed by the Holy Spirit. What amazed me was the sermon in which the pastor focused on being willing to change and be changed in order to grow in our faith. He and I do not normally cooridinate the sermon and Communion meditation, and we did not that evening. Afterward, he asked me how long that I had worked on the piece for that night, and I admitted that it was the reason I was running a little late getting there for the meal prior to the service. He commented that it doesn't happen often, but sometimes, something happens in a service, and when it does, you just know that you've been impacted by the Holy Spirit. Yes, that night was one of those nights, and it was really cool to see a television series about a girl and her robot play its part.
To recap, Eureka Seven is a rare gem of a television broadcast series regardless of genre, nation of origin, target audience, etc. It has breathtaking scenery and action. The characters are the kind the viewer will identify with and attach to. The dialog and story are heartfelt and can be inspirational. Just remember that it's okay to stand by the ones you love like Renton does, and just remember, that like Eureka and the Nirvash, "It's alright to change."
Now that Renton is back aboard the Gekko, he and Eureka are happy...until Charles and Ray Beams attack. The two vow revenge on Holland and hope to also "save" Renton. Everyone is on edge as the climactic struggle that will either way have tragic results begins.
Holland is able to kill Charles, but is wounded in the battle. Ray escapes leaving a greif stricken Renton at least a bit relieved...until she returns. A second battle sees the end of Ray, but Holland is again injured and needs blood from Renton to be saved. This infuriates Talho because Renton has his sister's blood too. Still, Renton saves Holland.
The pair of Charles and Ray are perhaps two of this show's most tragic characters. Not being able to have children of their own thanks to the Summer of Love, they hoped Renton could fill the gap in their hearts. At least they find peace in death. Renton's reacton to the whole situation is also very emotional. The first two episodes leave you happy that the Gekko triumphed, but it was bitter sweet indeed.
The next episode sees the truth about Eureka revealed. She is in fact a human shaped coralian! The Gekkostate was only formed to protect her. While this revelation is indeed important, this episodes other story steals the show. Dominic visits Axel Thurston and learns about the deep level of kindness humans are sometimes willing to show to complete strangers.
In the last episode, the Gekko and Nirvash are in desperate need of repairs. They head to the Tressior research facility to rest and make repairs. There, Renton meets new acquaintances who knew Eureka, and his grandfather. Most importantly, Eureka and Talho make some changes of life.
Overall four emotional and wonderful episodes of the show. This special edition also comes with manga volume 5, a shirt, a collectible box, and a cd. The price is well worth it and this is a great buy for any anime or Eureka Seven fan.
[ Beautiful ArtBox/Packaging - Nice CD SoundTrack & DVD/ both with well designed art covers - Great book to read or just go through to look at the artworks/ Nice Shirt with good quality.. Sounds kind of like a LootCrate Box, but it's better : ) ]
