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.

Unbeatable characters 10 episodes in.
15 May 2007 | by thornfalconeyeSee all my reviews

As everyone else has already said, the first 10 episodes you hate Renton, because he says obscenely stupid things. Yet after that, you see him start to change, and how everyone else changes as well. This is what makes this anime so great, its like Inuyasha if things actually progressed, and they have only around 2 episodes of filler, and they weren't really filler, but oddly done mini-plots. After the last episode,I felt as if my life was over, with that creeping sorrow that you experience after losing anyone important to you. Yes, it truly was that good.

I bought the series(Japanese: Subbed not dubbed) and am currently watching it for a 4th time, after being dissatisfied with Blood Plus, Fullmetal Alchemist, and many other animes that don't really seem to work, as they have the weird anime expressions that seem so unnecessary now.
