Plot Summary: 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 “reffing”-- 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.

Bandai Entertainment Adds Eureka 7 Film, Streams TV Series

Film in 300-400 theaters on September 24; Eureka 7 TV series to stream on ANN

Eureka 7 was one of those shows I appreciated much more on a second viewing. The first time I saw it, there was a lot of stuff that I didn’t pick up on that I did the second time around and made for a more enjoyable experience.

Then there’s the Eureka 7 manga that Bandai put out while the series was originally airing on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim block. While it generally follows the story of the anime series, there are quite a few notable changes–including the ommissions of some plot points and characters from the anime, the introduction of a new character found only in the manga, and completely different outcomes for the main characters.

Reminder: Thursday, 09/24 is only five days from now. showing " Eureka Seven - good night, sleep tight, young lovers".

The movie event was awesome! Once again, I took a friend that had never seen anime. Throughout the movie, she was spellbound. When it was over, she shook her head and murmured “Incredible”. When the lights come on, she said “Disney ain’t got nothing on this sh*t!!” She could not stop talking about it all the way home. Thus, another person has become a fan of anime.

The theater was filled almost to capacity and the audience was great. We cheered, laughed and cried together. There was plenty of applause during and after the movie.

The movie itself was amazing. Although it has the same characters as the series, it is a completely different story. For me, everything about it was great – the story, the music, the voice acting. Beautiful!

After, the movie, we were treated to a “making of” with interviews from the voice actors. The “making of” ended with some outtakes from the movie. “Ichigo” appears in one of the scenes with his “Oh crap!” It was great. I think everyone there screamed out “Ichigo!!” It was a very funny moment. All in all, I had a great time.

Good way to get someone into anime.

I think the highlight of that event was the making of part. I truly found it funny. The end titles song was mad-crazy-cool too.

“Eureka, the most mispronounced word in the English Dictionary.”
Eureka to Renton: “Idiot! Idiot, Renton you’re an Idiot…”
Renton to Eureka: “B***h”

The outtakes rocked.

:ohmy: There is a movie too? Continued story, new story, compressed story???

If you scroll up, there’s a link to both the anime and the movie, there’s a synopsis for both!! :laugh:

Yes, that “mispronounced” part was the best!! I’m glad someone besides me went. I thought more people from here would have gone.

It really was a great night.

That 12.50 price tag may have shied a few a way. I agree though, it was cool to have people laugh along with you at the funny moments(When Renton says he is going on a date, the audience I saw it with got a good chuckle.) or stay afterward, because they are all fans, and wanted to see the after bonus. Lots of good discussion around me while the credits were rolling.

I’d have gone if it was playing anywhere near me. None of the movies from Bandai ever play at the theaters near me. Funimation so far only the One Piece movie 8 played and I missed that because they had the wrong times listed in the paper and the site and the recording was also wrong.

Good to hear you guys that saw it enjoyed it. Would have been a bummer after waiting all this time for the movie if it was disappointing, especially with how well the TV series ended.

Bandai Delays Eureka Seven Movie, Hayate, Kurokami

I drove to LA to watch this in a theater. It’s a good movie but seriously you need to be prepared: The movie has NOTHING directly to do with the show except it’s the same character designs. Everyone acts differently, it’s set in a different time, none of the events in the show are referenced, and even the theme of the show is different.

It’s a good movie!!! I can’t stress that enough, but if you watch it thinking you’re going to have your questions from the end of the series answered, then you’ll be disappointed.

Company to release BONES’ 50-episode series on DVD & Blu-ray

Great! Can finally replace the Bandai Ent. release . With Blu-ray no less. Honestly would buy it Blu-ray or not as a few of the disc from the Bandai release won’t play in anything I have set up at the moment.

A “mainstream” anime that I haven’t really seen. I tried to check out the new one but it wasn’t for me. I hear tell that the original is worlds superior so I’ll give it a shot.

Meh…I’m good with my DVD’s.

As for the sequel, I’ll wait for the complete collection.
