Product Description

The 2005 broadcast series Eureka Seven offers snazzy aerial sequences that suggest snowboarding raised to the nth degree. Fourteen-year-old Renton Thurston lives with his mechanic-grandfather, but dreams of joining the elite pilot-mercenaries of the Light Finding Operation (LFO) aboard their ship the Gekkostate. When LFO pilot Eureka crashes her mecha, the Nervash Type Zero, into his grandfather's shop, Renton is smitten with her beauty and her flying skills. He brings her the Amita Drive, a mysterious invention of his father's, that increases the power of the Nervash astronomically. Thurston's latent talents win him a place on the Gekkostate, but he has a long way to go before he's accepted as a real member of the team. Eureka Seven ranks as a noteworthy series in many ways. The aerial maneuvers and mecha battles are choreographed with exceptional élan; the handsome designs recall Last Exile, but with a bolder palette; and Renton expresses the enthusiasm and insecurity of a rookie without becoming a pill. The storytelling is rather oblique, but once the filmmakers finish cutting through the thickets of back story, Eureka Seven should really soar. (Unrated, suitable for ages 12 and older: violence, tobacco and alcohol use) --Charles Solomon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
Renton's voice can get a little annoying, but for me that was compensated with an interesting storyline, good character development and very nice artwork. I thought they blended that well with alternating some decent action and some comedy.

As the series progresses the various characters are shown to have more depth than you would think at first, some have been damaged by their own history that we see get developed along the way. Renton's arrival, with what you might call the shattering of his own naive view of his world and his heroes, sparks his own growth as a person, which also seems to cause some of the others to look deeper into themselves as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gekkostate of mind is no joke.....enjoy! Dec 11 2006
By Robert - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I hopefully won't give away too many spoilers.
I had seen a few episodes of Eureka Seven on Adult Swim, but I remained skeptical. [...] Yes, Eureka Seven has its own wikipedia page.
I eventually bought this special edition since I figured I would end up buying the soundtrack at some point, and I figured the shirt and box were nice too. Oh, by the way, the view of the shirt the product image shows is the back of the shirt. The front of the shirt has the Gekkostate emblem in the top left. After reading Courtland J. Carpenter's review in which he describes Gekkostate as being more like a terrorist cell, I was kinda surprised at the shirt. I love my shirt, by the way.
As for the show itself, well, you'll be proud to wear the Gekkostate emblem as well because Gekkostate is just awesome. While being deadly serious at times, Renton permeates the show with a youthful optimism that is infectious. One of the major themes throughout the show is the idea and importance of choice as well as being loyal to the ones who matter. Additionally, be prepared to see characters face the consequences of their actions and choices.
There's something very special about this series and the characters in it. The characters all have their own histories and backgrounds, and very few of them seem flat. Even Dewey has a certain aristocratic air about him even though he comes across as very easily despicable. Eureka may remind some viewers of Cheza from Wolf's Rain, but I caution that even Eureka has her own past and pain. In one sense, this makes her more real. In another sense, it may make viewers attach more strongly to her. If a viewer grows attached to Eureka, they will have some strong feelings later in the series which may reflect the viewer's own personality and traits of character. Will someone despise her, pity her, or maybe agree with Renton that taking a stand is the right thing to do?
I will leave potential viewers with this in mind. One Sunday morning, I was watching the second episode on the disc while mulling over what to speak on that night at church. I was responsible for the evening's Communion meditation. The episode's opening scene with Renton and his falling predicament made me think about a message:

"Make a choice, commit to it, and see it through. Don't be afraid to get out and take a risk for the ones you care about. Take a risk; make a choice; stand up and be counted for something that matters. After all, that's what Christ did when he committed his life to us on the cross at Calvary. That's one of the reasons we remember His spilt blood and broken body when we partake in Communion. He made a choice; he took a stand for us; He bled and died for us. Is it really too much then, for us to take small risks in our own lives? Is it too much for us to commit to those who matter to us? Is it too much for us to find something to believe in and commit to it? Christ committed to us, and we should commit to each other and to things in life that are worthwhile."

If you let it, Eureka Seven will make you think, and you may be surprised what application that ends up having in your own life. I know I was surprised.
Another person and I were discussing this later...
"Wait, you got the idea for tonight from that series you've been watching?"
"Yeah, but I'll never admit it to (the pastor, name withheld)."
"Good call."
We both had a good laugh.

This one has a lot of charm. I love the artistic style and the amount of detail in the characters they designed into this series. Not knowing much of the story I picked it up and am very happy with starting what seems like a great series. I love the use of color and the ending credits song is amazing. Best song in an Anime for me since the opening credits to Escaflowne. Cool mechs and action too.

4.0 out of 5 stars A gitft for a relative Sept. 3 2007
By EAG2 - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This was a gift for a young relative who lived and breathed Eureka. Until her visit with us, we had no idea of this genre of video, yet the teenagers at school whom I work with had heard of it and loved it. The collector sets, book, shirt and video, we got for her where her favorite acquistions;they even got the honor of laying in the bed next to her. I gather this show has a great story line, and the drawings were fabulous. She enjoyed the book, for several days, rereading and drawing the characters. Even the local asian video store here, Toys and Joys, didn't not and could not obtain it. Amazon, had it shipped and to us in less than a week. Thanks Amazon .. you made someone really happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Filled to the Brim and Running Over April 27 2006
By Antonio D. Paolucci - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
(Because of a mistake made by, 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 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.

So, if you're planning on collecting this series then I wouldn't miss out on this set. Everything here is a great companion to the excellent anime included, and the slip-case collector's box is unique enough to add a little flair to the DVD shelf. Get this and enjoy everything it has to offer. There is hours of entertainment in this box.

Now for the anime...

Eureka Seven is a beautiful anime, and has everything that to me makes an anime great:

1) Animation--Eureka Seven has some the cleanest and freshest animation I've seen, and seems to somewhat resemble an FLCL mixed with Fullmetal Alchemist. Not only that, but the action is smooth and exciting, the character designs are unique, and the settings really add to the story that is taking place.

2) Story--firstly, Eureka Seven has some great characters, with Renton, a bored boy who just wants a little change, to Eureka, a wise-for-her-age girl who pilots a giant wind-surfing robot. And while this series contains a large cast, it does well to keep a few of the cliches out (though not all, I will admit). As for the story surrounding these characters, that's pretty good as well, at least from what I saw so far. Renton, as stated, wants a little change, and feels locked in the boring city in which he grew up in. That's when Eureka makes an appearance--of sorts--and Renton not only falls in love with her but makes his decision to finally change his life. Also, he must do this while living with the knowledge that his sister has disappeared, and his father is the man who saved the world.

3) Music--if you've read any of my past anime reviews, then you know I highly regard Cowboy Bebop, FLCL, Samurai Champloo, and Wolf's Rain not only for their great stories but for their excellent music as well. Eureka Seven follows in the same route, adding a techo-dance theme to their musical score that accompanies the goings on in the series oh so well. Luckily, the soundtrack comes paced inside, so you can hear this music anytime you like.

No matter which version you do buy, though, I wouldn't miss this anime either way. Eureka Seven seems to me to have everything people should love in an anime. And the future for this long anime series is very promising.
