Eureka Seven Pocket Full of Ranbows has been finnished being subbed.
Here is some info GO here to watch the movie

The big question is how was it for you? Did it meet your expectations? How satisfied with the story were you? What do you thing would have made it better or what did you want the movie to be about?

As for my self i loved every bit of it, though it was not what i was expecting and it definitely was different from what i was use to and I'm actually glad that it was. It gave me an experience and view of Eureka Seven that i may not have gotten if it was the way i was hoping it would be.

That being said i would still like to have a season two picking up where the Show left off at.

What do you guys/gals think about the movie any criticism insight any thing is welcome lets here what you have to say.

It was ok if you hadn't watched the series.
If you watched the series you'd seen more than half of it, and it was just an alternate timeline story which had nothing to do with the original script.

Horrible horrible horrible abuse of customers.
I'm sure it'll probably get fanraving reviews though, sigh.

I first learned of Eureka Seven: Pocket Full of Rainbows from our very own Crunchyroll advertisement in the site's main banner. The film adaptation of Bones' much beloved anime series about sky-surfing mecha and teenage romance was something I looked forward to when I first knew about it. Given how enjoyable the Eureka Seven anime series was, I expected it to give me the thrill I had from the series. Unfortunately Pocket Full of Rainbows turned out to be a disappointment for me. I don't really want to break it hard for those who haven't seen it but here are my thoughts on the subject.

Warning: Light spoilers in the next paragraph!!!

Pocket Full of Rainbows features most of the Eureka Seven characters fans know and love, but the events take place in a parallel universe and the story is entirely different. In this world, humans and aliens known as IMAGES are fighting for control of Earth. Eureka is an IMAGE in human form and she was raised together with Renton by the researchers who are trying to discover her secrets, but one day the military raided the research facility and took her away. Years later, Renton has joined the military and is serving as an LFO pilot on the Gekko. Renton and the Gekko successfully rescue Eureka from the compound she was held at in a mission to stop the IMAGES from taking Eureka. Unbeknownst to Renton and Eureka, the crew of the Gekko has an ulterior motive and wants the protagonists to bring them to Neverland, a world where people don't age.

... Or at least that was what I think the story was, since I had no clue what was going on half the time. The story of Pocket Full of Rainbows was a meandering mess, filled mostly with long-winded and poor explanations of certain events interspersed with brief bursts of action and emotional moments. The connection between Eureka, IMAGES, and Neverland was never fully explained, and therefore it wasn't clear what Holland and his gang really had in mind. The roles of Koda and Anemone are also puzzling, as both character received plenty of screen time while accomplishing little. Pocket Full of Rainbows went out of its way to tie in various details from the anime series, but none of the details amounted to anything. There was a lot of information being thrown around, but the film failed to bring them together into a satisfying conclusion, and thereby leaving the audience (or at least me) more confused than ever at the end.

Pocket Full of Rainbows brought back plenty of familiar faces from the anime series. Hoewever, for most it didn't bring back their personalities. Granted, it's harder to develop a large cast of characters in a two-hour movie than a 50 episode anime series, but the film didn't develop most of the characters. Forget the fact that Holland and his crew are portrayed as nothing more than a bunch of selfish bastards, Pocket Full of Rainbows' most glaring fault is its portrayal of our protagonists. The Eureka Seven anime series, at its core, is a coming-of-age love story between Renton and Eureka, but this film version does not fully deliver on this central element. Part of the problem is with the story; the film starts with Renton and Eureka already knowing each other quite well, so there is not much room for the bonding process between the two as was in the anime series. The other part of the problem is the dialogue; the lines just seem so clichéd, with most of them being emotional outbursts or tearful realizations. The feeling of romance and teenage love was often lacking throughout the whole film, and this is perhaps the most unforgivable failure among all of the other questionable aspects.

Needless to say, Pocket Full of Rainbows pales in comparison to the anime series that inspired it. One of the few things that didn't go wrong in this film are the action sequences, which, while entertaining, were in line with all the other missile and homing laser spam scenes from the anime series. I also find little Renton and Eureka very adorable, along with the portrayal of Nirvash when not in mecha mode, but that's about all the pros I could think of. Perhaps it was unrealistic to expect that Pocket Full of Rainbows would be as excellent as the anime series, but Pocket Full of Rainbows wasn't even decent; it was mediocre at best. The story was confusing; the pacing was off; the characters were poorly developed, and they even messed up the Renton-Eureka romance. It was quite a big let-down for me and I can't bring myself to accept my disappointment over this one.
