Hello all you Eureka Seven fans! I'm matt, and I run the Eureka Seven forums. How does this have anything to do with the Eureka Seven Movie or Continuation?
Well, if your someone who searches on google for E7 movie info, you'll find the E7 Forums in the first few results of the first page. We are the #1 source (beatingalmostall others) for Eureka Seven info.
Many of you have limited information regarding the continuation, and this is because you are not a member. And no, I'm not going to require you to join the forums to find the info.
This is what we know, these are FACTS, not rumors, I repeat, FACTS.
Fact 1: In April, we got Adrian (was involved in the E7 Project as a small animator) to contact an employee in BONES who after careful prodding said that the FRANCHISE of E7 would continue for the next two years. How? He did not say.
Besides this, in a just recent (only yesterday) interview with Dai Sato, he was asked about this and neither veriefied it or disclaimed it but instead said he wasn't allowed to speak about it.
Fact 2: In April, or around that time, BONES and BANDAI 'RENEWED' the rights to Eureka Seven and its name. This has raised a few eyebrows in the E7 community but coresponds with the previous fact.
Fact 3: Gallo, the official sketch artist for Eureka Seven, posted on his site, before it mysteriously went offline, a new picture of a previously never before seen eureka seven federation ship. Looked sorta like a blimp.
Fact 4: From Augest 31st - September 1st, FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, VLOXY (a member of the E7 Forums) went to AnimeFest in Dallas twice and interviewed Mr. Dai Sato (the writer and director of E7) about certain things. Below is what happened, and it is by far the best fact given.
"There are a lot of rumors that Bandai and Bones have signed an agreement to continue Eureka Seven. Some say for two years. What does that mean? A new series or a movie?"
He smiled. Laughed. And through his interpreter said, "It is up to the producers and the companies involved. I am unable to say anything because I am bound by a contract. Is this good enough?"
I shook my head and laughed in disapaointment, and said "I understand that you have a non-disclosure agreement, but can you possibly say yes or no?"
He just smiled and laughed some more and did not say anything.
Vloxy than proceeded to give Mr. Sato a card with the E7 Forums address and Mr. Sato agreed to check it out sometime.
On the following day Vloxy returned and the questions resumed.
"In your mind, does Eureka Seven end at epsiode 50, or can you envision a future for Renton and Eureka?"
"I can envision a future for the two of them," he said reflectively and contemplatively. Then a bit of laughter.
I then showed him the picture above of the two winged children and I said, "Could this be it?". And he said, "This is depicting the next generation, his (Renton's) children, with flipped roles."
The following are two pictures taken during both days at the AnimeFest.....

FACT 5: We have learned that Studio BONES is hiring new employee's. According to Imarya Kashari (past Bandai japan employee) this is only done when BONES is preparing for a BIG project. Studio BONES only really has two big CURRENT projects, Fullmetal Alchemist and Eureka Seven. Fullmetal is as far as we know, a closed project. However, Eureka Seven is still an "ACTIVE" project. So although we can't confirm it, there's a high possibility their hiring for a project conscerning with the Eureka Seven continuation.
Fact 6: On Nov. 9 (2007) BONES posted the following in reply to a comment of mine on their BBS which can be found here: http://www.bones.co.jp/cgi-bin/bbs/bbs.cgi
QUOTE Hello, Matt.
My name is Chappy, and I am from BONES.
Thank you for support of Eureka Seven.
If more people support Eureka Seven more a lot, it may become a continuation or movie.
Because we announce it by all means here if it is decided sometime, please look forward to.
Those are the current facts, when we get more, they'll be added here: http://z7.invisionfree.com/Eureka_Seven/index.php?showtopic=2296
The above are all confirmed facts, not rumors.
Now, for the history and explanation of the Eureka Seven Forums. We were the first ever Eureka Seven Forums and are currently the ONLY active one's in the world. We have members from all over the entire planet and most importantly, we have insiders in Japan.
Who? Let me tell you.
For one, we have Patrick Seitz (the guy who dubbed Charles Beams voice) and he is a member and has a blog section on the forums. If your a member you can talk to him.
We have Imarya Kashari who when she joined the forums was working for Bandai in Japan, about a half a year ago she quit to become an engineer, but she still talks to her friends in Bandai and gets information from time to time from them.
We HAD Adrian, who animated the A PART END and B PART BEGIN sequences in E7, however when he began work on the Black Lagoon project he dissapeared from the internet. So sad. I miss him.
Oh and we also are known by Bandai in Japan and Dai Sato has been given our forum's address.
We have interviewed Crispin Freeman, Patrick Seitz, Dave Mallows, and even Dai Sato!
We have uncovered the identies of the two children on the 13th volume, Dai Sato in our interview told us that they were.......drum roll....... EUREKA AND RENTON'S TWIN CHILDREN! WOOT!
Ok, so basicly, just wanted to tell you this. You could join the E7 forums (we have over 1,400+ die hard E7 fans and japan insiders) or you can take what I told you and nothing else.
I'll be back, hope you guys appreciated this.
