YES! Eureka Seven was the first anime I ever watched all the way through, and it remains one of my favorite animes of all time. There's a reason why Crunchyroll dubbed it the "gateway anime". It's a great show for both newcomers and longtime anime fans alike. It really captured my imagination unlike anything else before or since. I think it will always be an incredibly special show for me.

As for the sequel / spinoff / whatever it is, I haven't seen it yet but I'm a little worried about it. Sometimes I think they'd be better off just letting a series like this end, instead of continually throwing new spinoffs and sequels at us in the hopes of mooching off the success of the original series: i.e. Code Geass. The Eureka Seven movie I know was terrible, it committed the unforgivable sin of actually cut-and-pasting bits of the show into the movie itself. I just hope they don't try to completely rewrite the story in this new series like they did in the movie.

Yh i completely agree with you. I really wish the new series will be original and no cut-and-pasting bits from the first one.

I watched this on adult swim a while back. Eureka Seven was one of my faves several years ago.

Whether your new or already familiar with Kōkyōshihen Eureka Seven doesn't really matter with Astral Ocean at this point. If you are familiar then you'll notice a lot of moments that bring up some nostalgia. If you have read the current chapters for the manga adaptation then you will have a better understanding of AO thus far.
There are some key differences between the two though. You really should watch the original before AO since it is a sequel after all. Anyone who enjoys quality character development should really enjoy Eureka Seven. Now I am curious where all the Evangelion fans are, usually they show up and troll anything Eureka Seven. Anyway, well it is hard to comment on AO as it stands.

It depends do you want manga information or strictly anime? Bones has impressive anime as always, the quality is at least on par with Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. The music has a much different feel and it seems Bones at least removed the way over the top things that happened in the final episode. I am certain we will see Renton and Eureka again it is almost a given. Beyond a doubt, Ao is Eureka's biological son. You'll see why in AO episode 2 or if you read the first three manga chapters.
Your last question is up for any interpretation. Personally, I've a feeling the two major world powers introduced thus far, China-Japan and the United Okinawan Archipelago have something to do with it. Either that or something to do with the couple's ultimate goal of establishing coexistence. I've also constructed a rough timeline of events from Kōkyōshihen to Astral Ocean. If you want to see it you can swing by the dead Eureka Seven forums on Mangafox and check under the thread "Timelines & Dates" or something of that sort.

Avoid the movie like the plague... I watched it once out curiosity and I regret it so very much. The production values were extremely low which is probably why 80% of the film was just reused material from the original with some new voice overs. If you liked any of the characters in the series, say good bye to them in the film. No one is the same and frankly it is just so rushed as to even be considered even remotely good.
AO as an anime goes is more action oriented in its first episode compared to the original. I suppose it is to attract a new audience since most people don't seem to appreciate a mecha anime unless it is nonstop action with no plot. Whether AO will be remembered as a good sequel series or an utter failure is yet to be seen. It is a fair deal different than what you'll have come to know in Kōkyōshihen. All and all everything is so shrouded in mystery at this point.

Have any of you seen the sequel for Eureka Seven? its called Eureka Seven: AO (Atral Ocean) http://myanimelist.net/anime/12471/ I recently just finished watching Eureka seven and i got personally attached to it, it has great characters and storyline and the reason of me watching it on the first place is because of the new sequel, i though i should watch the original anime first before i start with the sequel (which im glad i did). So for those who haven't seen it yet and those who are into Mecha, science fiction,romance i suggest you watch it!
