Oh my. Didn’t I write already that I’m not – and never was – a huge fan of Eureka Seven? And now, roughly 3000 years after the original series ended, Studio Bones brings out another feature length movie! This gonna be already the second installment of a planned trilogy.
Don’t get me wrong, judging by its concept and the involved characters, and not least the fantastic Studio Bones, E7 should be right up my alley. Pessimistic SciFi, a brittle little love story, cool air-surfer dudes and dudettes, space ships, a dystopian apocalyptic setting, all that is exactly to Orca’s taste. But somehow the series never clicked with me. Be it those whiney kidz or the diffuse plot, the uneven pace or totally incoherent acting and underdeveloped main cast, there was something wrong and unappealing with E7.
Guess I’m gonna sit this one out.
