First Film in New Eureka Seven Trilogy to Open in U.S. This Fall

You know that new Eureka Seven trilogy that was just announced? According to BONES president Masahiko Minami, the release of the first film in that trilogy will be quite an international affair, with a fall 2017 release in Japan, the U.S. and several other countries.

Now that’s making America great again.

According to the report, the complete list of countries in which the film will get a fall 2017 release include the U.S. and U.K., France, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand with more to be announced.

Minami mentioned a “simultaneous release,” though it’s not exactly clear whether that means every country will get the film at the same time as Japan, or if Japan’ll come first and every other country will come simultaneously.

The good news is, even in the worst case scenario, America will get some Eureka Seven fairly soon.

Bandai Visual also revealed the plot of the films:

Ten years ago, the major earth-shaking “First Summer of Love” event occurred. Renton, who lost his father during the event, now attends the army school of the United Federation of Predgio Towers located in the border town of Bellforest. Because his late father is still praised, Renton feels something is lacking as he continues with his ordinary, boring days. Then one day, Nirvash, the world’s oldest LFO, appears in front of him and a girl named Eureka emerges from the cockpit. This was the beginning of the future of humans and Scub Coral, another intelligent lifeform.
Was this encounter all just a coincidence? Or was it fate? Where will Renton and Eureka’s journey end?

As our own Joseph Luster reported back when these films were first announced, they have a bunch of original staff members returning, including chief director Tomoki Kyoda, writer Dai Sato, mechanical designer Shoji Kawamori, and character designer Kenichi Yoshida.
