Eureka Seven: Psalms of Planets

Eureka Seven is by far one of my most favorite of anime series. I have watched all the episodes of that series alone and have yet to see the other series of it.  This franchise has 2 spin off games, 2 series, and a feature length animated movie.

The story begins with Renton Thurston who has a series of problems. His father, Adrock died saving the world and his sister is missing in action. He is pressured by his grandfather, Axel into being a mechanic and his semi celebrity status earns him tease from bullies. To make matters worse the military is putting a tighter squeeze on laws that surround a popular form of transportation called "Lifting" In which a surfboard like device is used to fly into the air and do aerial stunts to which Renton considers his favourite sport. Just when things couldn't get any worse an LFO (A humanoid vehicle that can lift and transform into a car.)  crashes into his bedroom. Inside is a strange, but beautiful girl named Eureka who came to his home in search of the Amita Drive.  Why? Because her LFO is the Nirvash Type Zero a legendary powerful vehicle and the Amita Drive unlocks new abilities for it. Renton is immediately smitten with her.  However she is not alone, for the Military is after her and her crew of Gekkostate. A ragtag group of Rebels that Adrock and Axel associated with in the past.  Using the Amita Drive and a combination of Renton and Eureka's hidden feelings for each other, they activate the Nirvash's Ultimate Technique Seven Swell Effect which gives them a massive boost of energy. which they use for various things.  The most popular being to disarm every enemy LFO.  After the brush with the Military, Renton decides to leave with Gekkostate for further adventures while trying to get to know Eureka and her mysterious past.

Now for the fun part, Could It Exist In Real Life.

Let's start with the technology.  First is the Ref Boards.  Now I know what you're thinking "They are just like Hoverboards." However you are wrong. While they do hover, however unlike the Hoverboard, this board can also fly and requires a form of propulsion to keep it in the air as well as moving it in various directions very similar to the Jet Boots.  What am I talking about?  5 Years ago Birdman Inc developed boots that used Jet Propulsion.  These boots were designed to keep a person who was skydiving in the air and flying.  Now if one were to do rig it on a surfboard like device you have your ref board right there. However as said before, do not attempt to do such a thing unless you are a licensed skydiver as well as a licensed engineer.

The next is an LFO as explained before its a vehicle that has both a car, and a humanoid robot form.  This can exist.  Before I found out about this I was originally gonna do a Transformers Analysis.  I found a Youtube Channel of a man known as Kenji Ishida.  He as well as his company Brave Robotics developed a scale model of a car that could transform into a humanoid robot.  What stopped me from turning this into a Transformers analysis despite the obvious nickname was that this car was radio controlled.  It had no AI, and was controlled by a human no different than one driving the LFO. Just give it a Ref Board and you got it.

Now let's talk about something else: Coralians.  These are a race of symbiotic beings that exist in all forms.  There's the Scub Coral a sentient living mass that covers the entire planet and is the source of Trapar Waves a wave of in which the lifters use for both stability and propulsion.  The second is the Anti-body Coralians which search and destroy anything that threatens them. Last but not least is the humanoid Coralians, representations of the mass created to observe and study the human race.  These can exist in real life.  The Coralian race on the show has been portrayed as many types of living things. For example the Antibodies are simply good bacteria designed to strengthen the immune system.  The Humanoids were mostly modeled after bugs, giving them various stages of life which in turn change their appearance. As proven when Erueka's final form was that of a butterfly winged humanoid.  However the most dominant of species portrayal has been Fungus.  This stems back to when the Scub Coral makes its first appearance, growing out of the ground in a mass of flesh.  While the people destroyed it using flame throwers it only destroyed a part of the massive structure and eventually that piece burned had grown back.  When fungus is separated or cut away it doesn't die from it. It just grows into two separate life forms as proven with Eureka being seperate from Scub coral, but not dying. 

In my last article I did a joke about the various internet memes that have been well known throughout history.  While mostly for jokes, it was because I wanted to come up with my own meme, something that no one else had done and my revelation that the Coralians are sentient fungus just gave me an idea of one.  I call it:

RENTON THURSTON MADE OUT WITH A MUSHROOM!!!

As usual, debate argue and let me know what I missed. Stay tuned for more.

    1. Well when I mean A.I. in this sense I mean that it doesn't think for itself and requires human beings to control it.

    1. Well the LFO's were reverse egineered from the Type Zero, before people knew it was sentient. Also bare in mind the Type Zero has the ability to change it's inner structure to become other vehicles. Hence why it wanted to become a plane after spending most of it's time being a car. The LFOs were only mechanical redesigns of the Mark I mode and the KLFs were designed to fight on the land and in the Trapar.

  4. i feel like this is might be a little too hopeful... either way, eureka seven is 10,000 years after our time. they'd have very different technologies, and they are on a different planet. the only things that probably might NOT exist, though, are coralians and the LFOs. i don't know if trapars are even possible, and i'm not sure how the LFOs could have feelings nor how the coralians could even exist. i'd love it if they did exist like how they are in E7, but i don't know if that can even happen. and hoverboards... that won't happen unless some major breakthrough happens with rocket technology or something. anyway, i like the post, keep it up.

  5. This is an awesome and great item. Working exactly as expected product!
    It took me about an hour to get a grip on it, but after that,
    it was the best sports outdoors thing I have ever ridden. I
    highly recommend this to anyone who wants a Balancing Scooter.

  6. I bought this best hoveboard for my 2 sons. They are very happy to get it. While holidays I also enjoy it with my kids. This is a really high quality hoverboard. This has fantastic self leveling, lights, training level and also smooth ride. Its actual construction is very solid. I love it for its cheap hoverboards
