    ok just finished watching ep 50

    WTF just happenned? the nirvash went spec 3 and eurekA renton 'became one' and then nirvash was the voice of the coralians??? and said 'half will be leaving but half will stay'

    errr lots of questions to be answered... not the ending i was hoping for

    but afte watching it all.. man bets fucking last 2 eps of an anime series ive seen.... wahhh the suspense was great

    also, the music references (303,505,808,909 devilfish, love parade, the fact their names are all musicians names, the funky acid house ending of the last episode) fucking coool

    man im glad i could watch this all in one sitting, rather than waiting,, that would have been agonising..

    does anyone have any light to shed on my confusion?

    woah check out the trivia from wiki pedia

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eureka_Seven#Trivia

    the use of counter-culture references and a kickarse soundtrack make this anime that much fucking better!

    im gunna say it but i rekon its taken top spot over bebop as my all time favorite!

    found this synopsis

    At the sphere above the Tian Shan mountains, Renton met resistance from the planet, but he broke through and found Eureka inside. He told her that if she decided to leave herself behind as a Coralian, he would put aside his own humanity. That was when they had their first kiss. They were ready to become one with the planet, but as the massive structure broke apart, Nirvash ejected them from its body, telling them that their memories were now a part of its soul, and it can finally achieve enlightenment. It told Renton and Eureka to go and be an example to everyone living on the Earth, that humans can indeed coexist with Coralians. As the sphere broke apart in a flurry of Trapar particles, fissures opened in Scab Coral's surface, breaking it apart and revealing the Earth beneath.
    As the stunned crew on the Gekko-Go watched, Gonzy informed them that this is the Second Summer of Love, and that humans and Coralians will avoid the Limit of Matter and coexist in peace by existing in different universes. After revealing that he is also a Coralian, Gonzy vanished from sight.

    still doesnt explain the 'co existing in alternate universes' bit

    Think about...

    Buddhism, Buddhists (vordaks), past life (ring found on the beach), karma, enlightenment etc.

    this anime series' story seems to be inspired by those a lot.

    i think this anime has received more praise than it deserves. the story is all right but the romantic element between renton and Eureka wasn't that great. however, the emergence of the Anemone and dominic romance at the end was a nice touch. it's probably in my top 10.

    the ring might be from the OP3. lemme find screencaps of it.

    ok here they are.

    I seriously contend that this segment is not done on a whim, and that these are the actual past lives of the characters. Not only does it explain the ring we see in the amber, but it also makes sense given the strong Buddhist themes the writers utilized in their Vodarek religion.

    Don't forget that at the end, the Nirvash claimed that it could reach enlightenment, and the Nirvash's name is a reference to nirvana. Karma and reincarnation traditionally follow these concepts.

    So when the characters promise to love each other forever, they mean it. When Renton saw the ring in the amber, he was likely reminded at some deep level of the same promise he made to Eureka in a past life.

    the kids pissed me off to no end. at times, it completely ruined any semblance of seriousness the anime was trying to convey towards the viewer. the sappiness of the renton and eureka relationship was also irritating. cancer-patient eureka was visually offending and so was post-whore talho; the new haircut made her look like a cone-head

    Just finished it 10 minutes ago...and I'm off to post on OT :mamoru:

    I loved it. I agree with ae86, this may have jumped to the top of my list.

    The story was good, but I can't help but get the feeling that renton's constant fucking whining and crying along with every second the kids were on the screen being annoying as hell made the series much less enjoyable, and caused it to not make my top 10.
