    For the past few weeks I've been watching Eureka 7, usually when it airs at 1:30am but some on the DVR as well.

    For those not familiar with the title, here is the synopsis from WikiPedia:
    So after watching all of the episodes for the past few weeks the final episode aired again last night and.... darn it, if it didn't raise more questions then it answered. :banghead:

    As a whole the series is pretty riveting as it explores so many topics such as religion, our environment, relationships, and especially humanity. Some recurring themes such as surfing and Japanese & European pop music also run through all of the episodes. There are even a few, what seems to be obligatory these days, references to the US Military thrown in.

    The story line might seem to meander at times but the final & fourth season, especially the last few episodes, brings everything back together to show that from the very first episode that all of the major characters & events are actually intertwined.

    Episode #50 is the last episode and kind of annoyed me since it almost seemed like there should have been another episode or two between it and #49; it was almost as though the writers realized they were suddenly at the end and had to cram in a bunch of things. The episode did answer a lot of items but it also seemed hurried compared to the rest of the series.

    If you're a casual viewer of anime some of the themes might seem a bit strange but if find yourself up at 1:30am with nothing better to do, then try watching a few episodes when the series starts airing over again and you just might be entertained. :)
