"Ive never cried to an anime show, and this series moved me a great deal to tears."
"Eureka 7" rocks, but...

"I've got to say, you'll get your money's worth with this series. At 50 episodes AND an OVA, the show has some longevity and will take up some space in your collection. It is worth it.
Continuing from the first season, the action remains top notch. However, in early episodes of volume 2, you'll notice that the animation quality has gone down. This is corrected about episode 30 or so, so no big hit there.
Most of the character relationships, backgrounds, and the back-story are finally filled in for us. And there are some genuine tear-jerker moments to be had. The wife and I enjoyed the heck out of this show, but it isn't quite up there with a tightly wound, explosive series like "Cowboy Bebop".
Eureka 7's only downfall is it's generally lax pacing and repetitious soundtrack. Characters (specifically Eureka) have a tendency to fold in on themselves and not develop for LONG stretches of time, or at worst act uncharacteristically. The last few episodes may confuse you. But, there's nothing too terribly awful about this entire series, save for the English dub of Eureka's kids. Were they meant to be that annoying?
Taken for what it is, Eureka 7 carries some great libertarian, anti-state messages, runs on a free spirit, and generally does its own thing. The wife and I enjoyed marathoning this, but my suggestion now would be to take it slow and rewatch episodes as well."
