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

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.

Being an fan of anime and especially the writer Dai Sato(creator of samurai champloo,cowboy bebop)I've seen many shows and truth be told there are few shows that really make you go 'wow'!. This is one of those shows, most shows end either too early or carry on too long, this show starts and ends exactly where you'd want it, and when it ends it seems like they've lost track of where they were going with the story, Eureka Seven begs to differ! The pilot gives us an insight into the character development of the protagonist, the story as a whole unfolds well through the 50 chapters, including great mature humor that isn't there with regular anime shows, the action sequences are very new and unique, keeping viewers thoroughly entertained, and one of the best things about the writer is how he incorporates music to blend in with each scene be it action, humor or emotion.
For the most part the show tells us about life in the circumstances aboard the crew of the show, eventually a bigger picture is revealed, where the story picks up pace and helps you dive right in to the fascinating world created. The animation is amazing where it really matters is the fight sequences- there are no still screens! From start to finish the show captivates you and entertains till the very end.
Music, action, humor, animation at it's best and 50 episodes of it, what more could an avid fan or a person new to anime require?
