Storyline

Renton Thurston is a 14-year-old boy who lived with his mechanic grandfather in a backwater town. Every day he dreamed of being with the mercenary "Light Finding Operation (LFO)" aircraft pilot group "Gekkostate" and riding "Trapar" particle waves-- a sport called "Riffing"-- with their charismatic leader Holland, especially when faced with his father's acclaimed past or his grandfather's desire to protect him. When a young girl named Eureka riding the original LFO, the "Nirvash typeZERO", asks his grandfather for a tune-up, she inadvertently brings the attention of the military to the garage; as a result, the garage is destroyed and Renton is forced to deliver a new type of interface-- the "Amita Drive"-- to the Nirvash. After a heated fight in which the Nirvash destroys the military LFOs by unleashing an immense amount of power, Renton is invited into Gekkostate. However, he quickly realizes that behind the facade of a traveling group of mercenaries is a very bitter reality. Written by Anime News Network

Trivia

Throughout the series, both Holland and Dewey are reading the same book called "The Golden Bough" by James G. Frazer. This book is considered to be an anthropological masterpiece and aspects of it apply to many aspects of the series. Eureka Seven is a series that intends to give a scope of human actions and thought processes, the primary study of this book and cultural anthropology in general. For example; one chapter in "The Golden Bough" is called The Priestly Kings and uses the term "Sacrifice King"; a term that Dewey uses when telling the story of he and Holland's shared past, and it parallels his past actions quite exactly in a ritual way.

Best Anime in years, not quite crack, but definitely an addiction
11 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't know how I found this show, but at one point I decided to watch a free streaming episode online. Since then, it started an Eureka Seven addiction that will probably continue unabated until I have all 50 episodes and I have worn my DVD and/or hard drive out. Character development is oblique and quite mysterious with a diverse character set with counterparts. Episode 26 is my favorite with the culmination of the reversal of the main character actions of Eureka and Renton, but honestly I think there is only one episode that I wouldn't watch many, many, many times again. My family and friends think I'm crazy. Yes I am. Crazy about Eureka Seven.
