Eureka Seven is a anime and a manga created by Dai Sato.
The story takes place in the future where a boy lives in a sleepy town called Bellforest. The boy,who’s name is Renton, lives with his grandfather since both his parents, and his big sister has passed away.
One day, renton meets a young, strange girl named Eureka, who’s a member of a famous renegade group named Gekkostate.
Because of several incidents, Renton gets to join Gekkostate and become sort of an ”employe” to his idol, Holland Novak who’s the leader of the group. But renton soon finds out that life on Gekkostate is not as exciting and glamorous as he thought it would be…
”The setting of Eureka Seven takes place 10,000 years after humanity has made a mass exodus into space, due to the arrival of the Scub Coral, an intelligent, sentient life who merged with the planet, forcing the humans to abandon it. In the current timeline, the remnants of humanity are now settled on an unknown planet (actually a terraformed Earth) known as the Land of Kanan, but the majority of the surface of this planet is now covered by a rock-like surface formed by the Scub Coral. The Scub Coral previously inhabited the Planet, until the invasion of humans.”
(From eureka seven wikia)
Eureka seven was one on the first animes i watched and, it is to this day, one of my favorites. It’s just such a elaborate and well thought out world, the art is not bad either. I love the characters and the way they grow with the story.
ES is a shounen anime, which means it’s a type of anime that’s suppose to appeal to boys. But for some reason, almost all my favorite animes are shounen. ES dabbles into so many important topics and there’s something for everyone in the series. there’s drama,romance,action, a bit of gory scenes and a good variety of characters. My favorite character, and what i really found interesting was Anemone and her story.
But overall, i just love the world the story is set in. Also, i cant end this post without mentioning the amazing soundtrack to this series ! if you dont find the anime or manga appealing to you,(why wouldnt you tho? I mean, come on!) you should atleast listen to a couple of the songs from the soundtrack!
So yeah, if you want to start dabble into anime or manga, Eureka Seven is a really good place to start, also i think i saw it on netflix the other day, so you dont really have an excuse no to.
i cant believe i’ve gone almost an entire year without going to school.
And what’s even more unbelievable is that in only a few months im going back to school again. I’m a bundle of pent up energy, ready to explode at any second and not care who i take with me in the blast.
It’s approximately 4 months until i get back to my own personal hell, but the anxiety is already starting to spread around my life like a fucking tumor! And you know what’s so fucked up about the whole situation?
I keep worrying about going back to school and slipping back to dangerous patterns.
But then, on the other hand. What if i don’t get into any school at all and i keep being stuck in this weird place im in now?
I feel so shitty all the time. i hate the fact that i probably wont able to get an education if this continues, which it looks like its gonna..(Ive been at this since i was in 3rd grade) And i also hate that i am letting down the people who cares about me, and who counts on me to get a handle on things.
i know this turned very depressing very quickly (and randomly), but please allow me to indulge in some self pity, i get so much more out of it by writing it down instead of talking about it. and now, with that out of my system i am going to go back to bed and listen to some ‘i-am-going-to-fuck-things-up-and-you-should-all-be-afraid-of-me-music’ to get into better spirits
I am not going to provide you any “witty” saying about how much i’ve been neglecting my blog.. it seems like i do that quite often..
So, while i’ve been MIA, a lot of things have happened. Too many for me to go into detail on every single one of them. But what i can talk about is what i’ve been doing the past week. Me,my mom,my sister and my nephew rented a cabin for Easter holiday and probably gained 5 kg’s each over the course of the 2 days we were away. Seriously the amount of junk food that was consumed were ridiculous..
On Saturday Siri (my sister) and i went out to the local bar in town. its the first time i’ve been there drinkin (It doubles as a coffee shop during the day) it was a really surreal experience and the whole time we were there i kept thinking i was doing something i wasn’t allowed to.
On sunday i woke up bright eyed and and ready to face the day dead on. which was more than you could say about my sister.
After id run some errands around town, i went to pick up siri who i found cuddled up in her couch ,surrounded by painkillers and other hangover remedies. After that was over and done with i went to Marita so we could watch the new episode of outlander together <3
And that’s about it. katharina is coming over in a couple of hours cause we desperately need to hang before she goes back to Oslo !
Me,Mona and Marita just got back from from Rokken. The ever trustworthy place for kids my age to hang out in Volda. I just put marita to bed,seeing as she wasnt feeling too great and i am now curled up on the sofa with Mona. We’re contemplating wether or not to go back to Rokken and leave marita to fend for herself… It’s only 1 am and the night is still young. Just thought id check in with you guys since its been a while since my last post. I thought i was on a roll but appearantly not…
something not a lot of people know about me is that i read and watch manga and anime. It’s not something i deliberatly keep hidden about me, but i don’t go around flaunting it either. Manga is basically a form of a comic book made in japan and usually by Japanese creators. Anime is basically the the cartoon version of a Manga. I think there’s a lot of prejudice around manga and anime.
Either people believe it’s for kids, or that it’s for sketchy perverts. In the world of manga and anime (let’s shorten it to M/A from now on) there’s a genre called hentai and ecchi. Hentai and ecchi are a manga or an anime with ”adult” content, which one often can find on porn sites. Hence, you need to be a little discreet about throwing M/ A around. One time i was at a party and i was talking about an anime with a friend of mine and a guy overheard us and through out the night he kept throwing ”lewd” comments at me. When i asked what his deal was. He just shrugged and said that he thought that was my thing,since i kept hanging around on porn sites ”and stuff” (his actual words) …Yeah… No.
Anyway my point being, sometimes i watch anime and read manga and i am not ashamed ! Educate yourself before you judge … I’ve been interested in M/A since i was about 12 or 13 years old and let me tell you, it’s not any different from let’s say, watching your favorite show. it all depends on which M or A you choose to read/watch. there’s something for everyone.
