so yeah, a lot of people seem to really dig this Eureka crap, so much so that silly me I got caught up in the hype and signed up for this FIFTY EPISODE test of time abuse.
If filler is a dirty word than Eureka seven is filthy beyond recognition I have never watched an anime so eager to get away from whatever stupid and indeed simple love story is behind all the surfer scub coral jargon. Its almost as if somebody took all the worst bits from far better anime in the mecha genre such as evengelion, Escaflowne, or gurren lahgan, those shows at least gave me the sense that they were building up a central plot. Renton is possibly the most grating anime protagionst Iv seen thus far and this is coming from a guy who found Shinji,s crying tolerable enough to watch. Then there are those god awful robot designs, how did we go from the bad ass "unit zero one" to half assed transformers riding surf bords'?, and dont get me started on that whole scub coral thing guess that more made sense on paper in that case mabey the manga tells a better a tale, oh wait! LOL.
side note/ I get the Eureka part but what dose seven refer to?
