The first film in the Eureka 7 film trilogy premiered back in September 2017 and the second film, Anemone: Eureka Seven: Hi – Evolution, arrived in November 2018 for Japanese audiences. Back at the end of 2019, it was revealed that the third film in the series was being pushed back until 2021 instead of getting its debut that year. With 2021 being what it has been, the film was set for a tentative summer debut that then got put on hold due to the pandemic before being rescheduled for a November 26th, 2021 debut that it did make.
The Japanese home video side is now getting dealt with as Bandai Namco has set a June 24th, 2022 release date for it where there’ll be DVD and Blu-ray regular editions as well as a limited-edition Blu-ray release. They’ll be priced at 6,000, 7,000, and 10,000 yen respectively when they hit. The limited-edition will come with two soundtrack CDs, a new radio drama, a 60-page booklet, a 190-page booklet, and on-disc extras that include various talk events and stage greetings as well as promos and commercials.
We previously had the artwork for the regular editions below and the packaging and now we have the limited-edition full spread packaging from it below.
Hentai Shinshi Club and singer-songwriter kojikoji will perform the theme song “Eureka (feat. kojikoji)” for it. You can see the YouTube channel for Hentai Shinshi Club here to get a taste of their music.

Plot Concept: 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?
