About Eureka Seven Part 1 Blu-ray
Eureka Seven Part 1 contains episodes 1-26.
For Renton, every day's the same. Nothing happens, nothing changes. He goes to school, he goes home. The only thing that keeps him happy is lifting on his ref board. Then one day, a giant mecha called an LFO comes crashing down on him - literally. Inside is the most beautiful girl he has ever seen!
The thing is, the girl is on the run from the military with her stolen mecha, and she's brought trouble with her. Renton will have to summon up all his courage to face his childhood hero; get the girl he's hopelessly smitten with to like him; and - oh yeah - live up to the legacy of his father who saved the world. But hey, at least it's not boring anymore.

Ratings & Reviews
Finally able to own at a reasonable price
Eureka Seven stands out as one of my favorite anime series, being one of the few mechas (other than Code Geass) outside of Gundam that I enjoy and recommend wholeheartedly.
A word of advice before picking up this series to satisfy a mecha/gundam urge is that the story focuses less on the mechas dodging heat-seeking laser beams (yes, its true) and more on the budding romance between two teenagers, so if you want action and no romantic plot points, find another series for the time being.
The actual discs are of good quality and are currently at an amazing price for a 50 episode series, so the time to buy is now. One thing to note is that since the original series premiered in 2005 before HD was fully utilized in Japan, this is a 1080i 4:3 upscale (not 1080p 16:9) so it won't look purely as well as is does compared to modern anime today, though the actual art still shines through.
