"It's alright to change"

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This series has been amazing, and I've enjoyed watching every episode so far. This volume begins a new story arc immediately after Renton returns to the Gekko in Episode #26, "Morning Glory".
The action is intense in episodes 27 and 28 when we see the crew of the Gekko take their stand in order to protect Renton and Eureka from Charles and Ray Beams. The dialog in those two episodes also brings out the differences between Charles Beams and Holland as well as the divergence in the choices they made years ago.
In Episode #29, we see Renton and Eureka attempt to keep on moving and interact with the crew in such a way that it keeps people on the ship moving forward. Toward the end, things are mentioned that explain to Renton why things are the way they are and why Gekkostate exists. Even though there isn't any action in #29 or #30, these two episodes display one of the greatest strengths of this series, the incredible dialog and character development.
There's one other point that makes this series really stand out as a whole and the thirtieth episode, "Change of Life", in particular. This is a series with great animation, action, music, dialog, and character development. There's something more however. This is one that will make the viewer think, and may even inspire the viewer. To this end, I will leave the reader of this review with this experience.
Sunday, December 9, 2007 I was responsible for the Communion meditation at church. I had shortened Eureka's quote, "It's alright for you(Nirvash) to change too, just like me." to simply "It's alright to change." That evening I was a little late to the meal preceding the worship service because I had it in mind to watch the last ten minutes of "Change of Life", and then I began typing my Communion meditation. The meditation was centered around the idea that Christianity is a dynamic religion and I detailed scriptural stories that recounted people who were changed by their encounters with Christ, and I mentioned how Christ's sacrifice entailed a very change in the way that people were able to encounter God. I mentioned that when we take Communion we remember the sacrifice that gives us reason to change our lives and that enables us to be changed by the Holy Spirit. What amazed me was the sermon in which the pastor focused on being willing to change and be changed in order to grow in our faith. He and I do not normally cooridinate the sermon and Communion meditation, and we did not that evening. Afterward, he asked me how long that I had worked on the piece for that night, and I admitted that it was the reason I was running a little late getting there for the meal prior to the service. He commented that it doesn't happen often, but sometimes, something happens in a service, and when it does, you just know that you've been impacted by the Holy Spirit. Yes, that night was one of those nights, and it was really cool to see a television series about a girl and her robot play its part.
To recap, Eureka Seven is a rare gem of a television broadcast series regardless of genre, nation of origin, target audience, etc. It has breathtaking scenery and action. The characters are the kind the viewer will identify with and attach to. The dialog and story are heartfelt and can be inspirational. Just remember that it's okay to stand by the ones you love like Renton does, and just remember, that like Eureka and the Nirvash, "It's alright to change.""
