Renton Thurston is a young 14-year-old who is tired of his monotonous life. The only thing that makes him happy is when he "lifts," an extreme form of aerial hoverboarding. His feelings of frustration come from his life of toil in his Grandfather's garage and being the son of an enigmatic yet legendary "hero." One day, a large LFO (Light Finding Operation) craft called Nirvash falls from the sky and a beautiful young girl named Eureka emerges and asks for repairs. When a smitten Renton literally falls over himself to help her, the two begin a journey that will change both of their destinies.


Koukyoushihen Eureka seveN was published in English as Eureka Seven: Psalms of Planets by Bandai Entertainment from April 11, 2006 to September 25, 2007. VIZ Media has been digitally republishing the series under the VIZ Select imprint since May 19, 2015.

Of the many merits the Eureka Seven anime hold, the series is well-known for its outstanding soundtrack and slick animation. So naturally, the question that dwells on the mind of anyone who is considering the manga is: "Would the manga adaptation fare well within a medium devoid of these things?" The answer is "yes". With a darker and more mature story, great artwork, and extremely engaging drama, the Eureka Seven manga is well worth the time of newcomers and anime veterans alike.

The story centers around the adventures of Renton Thurston, who upon meeting a peculiar mecha-riding girl named Eureka, escapes his mundane life at the read more

If you have seen the series, and enjoy manga, then this manga will tickle your fancy. I assumed it would be generally the same story as told in the series, but was pleasantly surprised by an entirely different approach. Some elements from the series are kept in tact, such as the relationship between Eureka and Renton, but as far as everything else goes, it's like reading an alternate ending.

The art is very well done, easy to read into. Not too much emphasis on character growth aside from the main characters, but coming off of the series, you know the crew anyway. Overall, the most read more

I really wanted to write a review for eureka seven but because there are already many great reviews for the anime so i decided to write one for the manga version.at first i didn't like mecha or sci-fi animes/manga but i changed my opinion after eureka seven because i was really amazed.
The Eureka Seven manga(published by BANDAI ENTERTAINMENT) is a version of the anime series originally created by BONES.The story in the manga(created by Kondou Kazuma and Kataoka Jinsei) is approaching the story from a different point of view than the anime and basically leads to a different ending.

I had been putting off reading this manga for a long time mostly because I had figured it was going to be an exact copy of the series (which is one of my favorites). Boy was I surprised and overjoyed when I, along the process of reading it, discovered it was an original take on the series just like the movie. I found myself once again taken into the world of Eureka Seven for another enthralling adventure with the crew of the Gekkostate. The story is definitely more graphic than that of its anime counterpart and although it all seems crammed together read more

Manga: Sidonia no Kishi
In both the main character is a guy who suddenly becomes a mecha driver, passing from monotonous life to a fast-paced one!
Both have fights with big mechas against a misterious enemy, lovely art and good plot

Manga: Neon Genesis Evangelion
Both are above average adaptations of mecha anime and both feature military organisations that are out to make major changes to the planet and mankind.

Manga: Deadman Wonderland
Fantastic Jinsei Kataoka x Kazuma Kondo works that are a mix of several different genres (sci-fi, drama, action, supernatural, tragedy, psychological, some violence, some romance). Both are serialized in Shounen Ace, but are surely more mature and interesting than most shounen series.
In both the protagonist is a kid with a monotonous life, who suddenly encounters a strange girl, and sees his life change drastically.
Both series have exciting plots, the same amazing art, and similar characters.
