Quick question to anyone who has knowledge of the coolio Japanese Yoshida-sketched-on boxes for the series.
A) Are there only two boxes?
B) Do these only come with the DVDs? Or was it UMDs?
Based on this post.
I told you I’d edit it.
This ended up as either nightmare fuel or something mildly funny. I apologize either way.
Eureka seveN VN Chat happenin’ now! Come on in, guys!
Esper [webirc], channel name: #eurekaseven.
Quick reminder of the Eureka seveN VN Meeting tonight.
8/9 central, IRC channel ‘#eurekaseven.’ The usual. We’re gonna talk about our artist ad we put out and hopefully have some new people to discuss with! (We had some good interest!)
Demo prep should probably be finalized by now if not really soon. I’m guessing we’ll probably finish discussing the prep tonight.
So heya guys, anyone who’s interested in learning about the fanmade Eureka seveN Visual Novel/Dating Sim we’re workin’ on for the fun of it (and those involved of course) can now discuss (if we choose) on the E7 forums! I finally fixed what I was doing wrong before when I set up new categories.

Have at it!

Request: anybody willing and able to translate the top 5 names on the right page there? (And also what the writing says where the 5th person’s date of birth should be? I think its date of birth, anyways?)
Quick guys: I’m going to make an order for some sort of custom-made jewelry (well, clay jewelry). Probably gonna be a necklace. What would be cool to ask for? I’m thinking either a Compac Drive or a Skyfish, but I could ask for pretty much anything (LFO head, Gulliver, character chibi etc.)
What do you think would make a cool necklace?
Eureka seveN 30-Day Challenge, Day 23: Do you own any Eureka seveN merchandise? (ie Cosplay, figurines, DVDs etc.)
I do! All of the items up above are official merchandise, and the following are a continuation of official merch alongside some fanmade stuff:
List (from top to bottom):
22. When and how were you first introduced to Eureka seveN?
Beginning of Grade 7 in 2007, when I met a bunch of new people who were really into anime and, at the time, I hadn’t really given anime much thought. I think I was a little off-put by it since like Grade 5 when I saw a random InuYasha episode where he was like being molded into the breast of a naked woman who was posing as his dead mother or something and my Grade 5 self was really weirded out.
But anyways, I decided to give it another shot since these new people quite liked it. Every Friday night was anime night for the program ‘Bionix’ (basically Canadian TOONAMI). I thought InuYasha was ok and Fullmetal Alchemist was pretty cool (though I was never strictly following it) but Eureka seveN aired right after FMA and I was kind of interested in the giant robots who surfed in the air, pfft. Anyways, I think I got into it when it was about episode 10 or so, and I watched it religiously every Friday night with a new episode on Bionix up until episode 26 (because they looped it from episode 1 after that, for whatever reason). I found the rest of the episodes online and watched them subbed, and then I rewatched them on Bionix dubbed when they finally aired 1 - 50.
And then I bought the DVDs and the collection began and.. yeah…
Good ol’ days of Canadian anime television.
21. Favorite Side Character/Character that didn’t get more than two episodes of screentime total?
Mm… it’s a bit of a weird three-way tie for me, for different reasons I guess.
1. Sakuya, because I really liked her character and I loved her story.
Especially for how much was told about her in such a small amount of time. I loved her for the intrigue of her character to me.
2. Digger. I thought he was such a fun guy, and so expressive too.
But I guess he got like 3 or 4 episodes with random cameos, so this might not count. Eh, he was still such a fun side character, so that’s mainly why I really liked him.
3. William B Baxter, for his sheer philosophy on life.
This guy is incredible, and the anime gets so many positive points for making me downright love this guy within literally like 10 minutes of screentime (and to just emote so hard over his end in episode 49, ughugh).
20. If you’ve seen Eureka seveN Episode 51: New World Order, what did you think of it? (Keep in mind it ended up as a non-canonical alternate ending to the TV series).
I went absolutely nuts when I heard that they would be re-airing on it TV, because I’d only seen a completely raw and pretty low-quality DVD rip of Episode 51 like YEARS ago, probably back in 2007, and since its an alternate ending, I’d always wanted to know what happened in it. I also had this whole section called ‘Episode 51’ in my E7 movie book which bugged me to the core because it was in Kanji and I couldn’t read it. Still can’t, but at least I now know what the ending is.
I was ecstatic to see that Hadena had subbed it, and I think I torrented it until about 1 am, watched it, recorded my reaction with my mic for whatever reason (… I think I’ve still got the audio file) and then I think I rewatched it until about 2 am. That or I blogged about it with ben until 2 am, because we were emotional ninnies over that whole episode. I wept throughout the whole thing.
Compared to the ending of the TV series, I much prefer the canon ending to this ending for many reasons, however I loved the dialogue that they gave to the characters (especially Eureka and Anemone, particularly when they confronted each other in New Order).
I’m super excited for the manga serialization, too. Hopefully that gets scanlated!
19. Favorite mecha of the series.
The Nirvash typeZERO, specifically its Spec 2 version.
Nirvash in general is pretty bomb, and definitely my favorite mech for all that it goes through with Renton and Eureka and its pilots, but I especially like the Spec 2 because it felt more like once it had been upgraded, it reflected the development of Renton’s and Eureka’s relationship as well. More specifically, probably the biggest developments of their relationship in my opinion.
The Spec 1 was cool-looking and the Spec 3 was certainly pretty damn awesome, but Spec 2 has my ultimate favorite design.
It also had that cool Hadouken Seven Swell ball of energy attack, nbd.
18. List two characters who you wish hadn’t died in the TV series, and why
(and I put two there for a reason. Also not ‘at least two’, just two. I know people want to say like everyone but I’m narrowing it down here).
As depressed as I was over Charles and Ray’s deaths, I felt more for Will’s and Martha’s deaths. It makes me feel a little better that their consciousness probably went with the Scabs, but I started to uncontrollably shake and tear up when Martha actually came to, and Will turns around to see her smile for the first time in years, and then their home gets hit by a rocketing piece of debris and a massive explosion occurs.
I loved Will and Martha, despite how little screentime they got, and I really wish they could’ve lived together (especially now that the Command Cluster was gone and Martha wasn’t in her comatose-like state).
