Synopsis

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.

Nostalgia, I often find, is one of the greatest deciding factors of a person's enjoyment of something, and this doesn’t apply solely to anime watchers. Nowadays I will find myself more often than not going back and taking shows I used to enjoy at face value and realizing they weren't as great as I remembered. It's a truly beautiful thing, at least for me anyway, when you watch a now classic show or movie that aired during your childhood in your adulthood without that nostalgia factor blinding your judgement. I didn't seriously start getting into anime until around the time that I was almost out read more

Eureka seven is a classc mecha anime, no this is a love story.The story clearly wasn't the major aspect of this but instead it was the relationship between eureka and renton.

Story 7: The story isn't the major part of this anime and has such it takes a back seat to the characters which can be frustrating.The story is good but it took way too long for it to be revealed.Throughout this anime there was no incline of where the story was going until episode 30 which is really not acceptable.30 episodes in before you even know what the story is about is a bit too read more

- [ Intro ] -

While enduring one of my anime-deprivation periods, I saw Eureka Seven with a high rating. I said why not and proceeded to get all of its 50 episodes. I started watching it only recently, after going through Ergo Proxy. Upon opening the first episode, I went o_0 then 0_0 instantly! Eureka Seven has a great OP and accompanying music! This promised to be a great anime. I could not resist going on after seeing the first episode. I can say I went through the episodes like read more

Well this is my first review in a while as well as watching an anime in pretty much 1-2 sittings. I haven't watched anime in a while but the introduction to this series was very gripping and interesting up until later into the show... but we'll talk about that later in review

Story:
So the premise of this story begins with a boy named Renton who has joined the group of his dreams the "GekkoState", and how he interacts with everyone on the ship especially a girl named Eureka.

Plot:7
The premise of this anime was a real rollercoaster ride for me. At first I really enjoyed it up read more

Recommendations

Anime: Bounen no Xamdou
Both are done by the same studios and have very similar animation, and the 'family' feeling amongst crew members in both series is very strong, particularly at the beginning.

Anime: Neon Genesis Evangelion
Eureka Seven takes many MANY things from Evangelion, such as characters (i.e: Rei Ayanami = Eureka), use of mecha, some things from the plot, etc. Sometimes when I was watching Eureka 7 I felt i was wachting eva, altough Eureka is not as sad or phsicological as Evangelion.

Anime: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
Mecha anime, mixture of humor, mysterious "aliens", a large cast of unique individuals, not to mention both take place on a devastated planet. 
reportRecommended by yami_shinyi
Anime: Guilty Crown
A teenage boy meets a cute apathetic girl in which they are connected by a red string of fate to these unique girls. The closer these individuals become the more we see how deep of a connection they share.

Both series have a mecha theme when on the battlefield

Anime: Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch
Deep, thoughtful, but also light at times. Both these animes have strong plots and characters and feature interesting applications of the stereotypical mecha genre 
reportRecommended by riraito
Anime: Last Exile
Both these series has a genuin story, characters you really learn to like and they are flying in both series. Both main characters want to protect those who are close to them, and they both have a female flying with them. There are a huge storm in both series that they have to get through. Both series are great, and you should take your time watching them both.
