Renton Thurston is your ordinary 14-year-old boy, who has grown bored of his current life in his hometown. He is the son of the acclaimed hero of the military, and every day, he has no greater dream than to look up to his idol, Holland, who is skilled in the hoverboard sport referred to as “REFfing” ("Lifting," in the English dub). He also believes that he would one day join the LFO rebel group Gekkostate, and surf the skies. As he tries to master the art and skill of REFfing, Renton has nothing more than his dreams and his hopes, which his grandfather mechanic dismisses as something useless. But one day, Renton’s life changes, when a REFfing LFO mecha crashes into his house, out of which emerges the most beautiful girl pilot he’s ever seen. Now, Renton finds himself in the middle of a war in which he absolutely has no desire to be involved in, having the ride of his life with his newfound love, his number one idol, and his hero father.

Eureka Seven (only talking about Season 1, not AO) is another very well done series by BONES. E7 is a lot of things all put together in one 50-episode package from action-mecha to SOL to philosophical piece, but the true heart of this series is the developing romance and characterization between the two leads Renton and Eureka. This is the one thing that remains constant throughout the series entire run, gets developed very well and imo is the strength of the series (although Renton can get on my nerves at times). The rest of the large cast is excellently developed in particular Holland who serves as a dynamic and intriguing foil to Renton. The action and animation stand the test of time and still look great. I also like how Bones ambitiously incorporates tons of elements and themes from previous sci-fi and mecha franchises (hello EVA). The biggest weakness for the series is that there isn't a very clear overarching plot for the first half of the series and there are quite a few filler episodes dispersed throughout (even though they are enjoyable). Thus, if you don't keep at it, this is definitely not the easiest series to finish with its 50 episode length. Still, this series does a lot more things right than wrong and is very enjoyable to watch all the way through. Just avoid Astral Ocean...

Season 2 (Astral Ocean) - a bad sequel and, taken standalone, a bad show. Awful directing, annoying one-dimensional characters, a messy, convoluted plot. Overall, just bad.
Even if you liked E7, I wouldn't recommend this.
