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.

Excellent series a must see, story is simply GREAT
This anime has a surprising story that goes through all 50 episodes from start to end. To be understood it would be better to see it over only a few days not 50 weeks as i did this past weekend even if I had already seen it before. It helps the story as a whole because you get to see it evolve without forgetting what happened a few episodes back. It teaches quite a few things if you look a bit deeper in the story, like about religions, how people can be different and still be in love and more. It is simply a must see not as anime but as a series instead because it isn't like most anime its got a beautiful love story as well as a whole package encircling it.
I love many different kind of animes but having seen this one again put it way up my favorite list, but still won't miss naruto or any other shows i like!
