An amazing conclusion

"This was an amazing conclusion to a very well done series. It managed to keep things changing and unexpected, all while presenting a well told and dynamic conclusion to the story and avoiding significant cliches. Everything introduced throughout the series 50 episode run comes together to present this concrete and satisfying conclusion that manages to avoid making things feel to fairy tale or textbook, but still doesn't fall in to the trap of overdoing it or making things too ambiguous and leaving a lot of loose ends.
This series is a character drama, and as such that is the real focus of the finale. The conflict and how it presents itself plays a significant factor, no doubt about it, but Renton and Eureka are the true focus and in that regard they pull it off perfectly. It's a roller coaster ride with a lot of ups and downs, times that feel like all is lost and times you can't help but cheer at the screen. On top of that, a lot of things are explained in this volume regarding the story and the world the series takes place on.
All in all it's a magnificent conclusion that doesn't disappoint. I find that usually is the biggest problem I encounter with anime is that the conclusions tend to be disappointing. I'm very happy that Eureka Seven, one of my favorite series, did not encounter this problem. This is especially relieving considering I read the manga through and was disappointed by how it was concluded.
This is a special edition, so it comes with a shirt like the others. In this case we get a light green shirt in size large with the military's logos printed on the upper front and upper back of the shirt. It also comes with the 2nd, and last, volume of the 2nd manga series; "Gravity Boys & Lifting Girl", which isn't bad, but it doesn't relate to the events in the series much at all. Another soundtrack is also provided with the full versions of all the intro and closing songs in the series, and for the game as well. It also has the final song of the series, though that was also provided as a full version in the second OST with volume 7."
