New original series by Bandai and Bones.

According to sources this show will run for 50 episodes with a game coming out in the summer. It is kinda like a co-release thing.

Main site: PROJECT EUREKA
Previews: http://mbs.jp/eureka/index2.html (promo + preview of ep 1, 2 and 3)

ep 01:

Animation........................................G ood
Mecha_Design.....................................O K
Waveboard_Propulsion..................Weird
Music/Sound....................................Good
Character_Design...............................OK
Story/Plot.................................Promising

I really enjoyed ep 1, the background art fits a modern world setting just like I would have imagined it. I will now proceed to drop Sousei no Aquarion from my to-watch list and enter Eureka Seven. The main character is a 14 year old so he's overenthusiastic at time, but at least he acts like a normal 14 year old.

Note to all mecha show producers: please get rid of the purple/pink smoke, black or gray smoke with a hint of red and yellow in the center would be so much better.

ep 03:

OMG OMG the way it ends it's just unreal, too funny for words. Hats off to the animators of this show, great AA evasion animation, very fluid, high production value to boot. Makes me think that they have a huge budget for this show.

Am I the only one around anime-planet that follows this show?

BTW this is a very light hearted mecha anime.

Actually, since this is a bones show, I'm following it. Pretty much any show from that studio will have me watching it ever since scrapped princess and rahxephon.
But this one is just weird. Even more so then Kurau was. And Kurau was a bit overboard in weirdness at times even for me. So I'm really not ready to form any kind of an opinion on this show yet. Looks very promising, but that's pretty much it so far

Yeah, but wasn't Bakuretsu Tenshi a BONES work? That show was crap. I don't *quite* regret watching it, like I do with Sister Princess, but it's damn close. It suckered me in with the visuals, music, and one cool character, but then stabbed my brain with an asinine plot and a spectacularly asinine ending. But enough ranting about BakuTen. I'll go ahead and give Eureka Seven a try ^_^.

I'm pretty sure BakuTen is a GONZO show so having a weak ending isn't really that new, at least for Gonzo.

As far as BONES and Eureka Seven conserned, Bones produce quite good shows but IMO they lack the magnitude of strength of FMA or Wolf's Rain.

BakuTen was embodiment of all Gonzo represented after vandread imo - all animation and design with overly complex and yet utterly simply and very much crappy plot. Definitely not my piece of pie although some people like that stuff very much, and definitely very different from all studio Bones' works to date.

I had to bump this since I really enjoy this series. It provides quite a bit of comical moments while still coming through with harsh realities and mysterious storyline.

Sadly I have watched up to all the released episodes and will be sitting around waiting for new episodes as they come.

i watched an episode of this show on a whim, not knowing it was a BONES production, and subsequently ended up watching another twenty episodes over the course of the next few days. this is as close to perfect as the mecha action formula has been in recent memory, blowing stuff like gunparade orchestra and gundam seed destiny out of the water, and hitting tones that sousei no aquarion can't. the world of eureka seven is well-realized, and i enjoy its varied cast of characters.
