You may know of Eureka seveN as the anime with the giant robots that surf in the sky. It’s incredible. Ever since I first discovered it it has been my all time favourite anime. The world and characters only help the unique story propel itself into an instant classic. The video game series serves as a prequel to the anime so you don’t need to have watched the anime to get caught up on what’s happening here… This is the second of two games, but don’t worry the beginning sums up the first game pretty well.
If you are interested in seeing the first game in full you can watch it from me right HERE. Or feel free to watch episode 0 for a quick recap of the plot.
I really enjoy the games a lot. They are just so fun to play. Something about the PS2 era of anime games just really made it feel like you were playing the show. While there are times when it has some cheesy moments or dialogues, it’s just super charming. Not a moment goes by where I think I’d rather be doing something else. Especially when I take to the skies in my own giant robot.
The game follows Sumner Sturgeon. In the first game, he was just trying to get by wanting to ride an LFO. So naturally he joined the military. Though it turned out the military using giant robots turned out to not be the greatest. So now he Lifts (hover boards) professionally to make it one day at a time. Until he decides he really needs to be piloting giant robots again. And honestly? Who wouldn’t want that?
The Let’s Play
I’m Michael. You may remember me from Three Heart Blind Guide Ocarina of Time, as well as Let’s Play Every Mario Party and Not Get a Divorce. Unlike those ones I will be going solo here. We’ll be focusing on the game and it’s story, so I’ll be keeping quiet outside of the actual gameplay sections. I’ll also try my best to explain the terminology as we go along. But I think that’s all, time to ride!
