This week see's the UK release of the "Eureka Seven - The Movie" (aka Eureka Seven: Good Night, Sleep Tight, Young Lovers) brought to us on DVD & Blu-Ray by Manga Entertainment UK.
Unlike most anime films, you do not need to watch the TV Series to understand the film, as this film is a stand-alone unit - which means even if you havent watched the Anime "Eureka Seven" (which in my opinion seems abit slow at times) you can still enjoy the feature length film without feeling lost or confused.
If you watched the TV Series and then the film (like i did) then you will notice alot of differences which makes the whole story confusing (untill at the very end when it all comes together) - so i say its best to watch both the film & TV Series at different times to really enjoy the story of each as they are both really good, but i prefer the film more as not only does it contain fast paced action - but it also contains the drama & story which heavily featured in the TV Series.
Yet again Eureka Seven - The Movie is best enjoyed in High Definition as the crisp video quality & superb surround sound makes it an enjoyable experience.
Eureka Seven: The Movie - £14.93 (Amazon UK), £14.99 (Play / HMV UK)
Plot: Renton, son of scientists, and Eureka, a girl who can't live under the sun, are raised together when very young and become very attached to each other. One day, Eureka is taken away. Powerless at the time, Renton vows to rescue her. He enters the military and is soon assigned to the Independent Youths Unit 303 of the First Mobile Forces thanks to his exceptional performance alongside his Nirvash, a bio-mechanical armor/control system. Unknown to Renton, lies a plot to extinguish the alien invasion that is currently happening. It involves not only him, but Eureka too.
