Eureka & Renton Lift Through Old Edo in Ukiyo-e Art
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Eureka and Renton look quite a bit different in their ukiyo-e adaptations. The stars of the hit anime television series Eureka Seven and the upcoming Eureka Seven: Hi - Evolution film series are still lifting on waves of trapar in ye olde Edo while a samurai-envisioned Nirvash takes on Hokusai's Great Wave at Kanagawa and Anemone and Dominic Sorel gaze out on the docks. Up-and-coming artist Takumi created the images.
All three of these ukiyo-e prints will go on sale as unique goods at six LHP stores in Japan starting on August 11. Each of the shops will have different goods, for instance the Harajuku location will have a stereoscopic Nirvash statue on display and character standees for photo ops. Setting materials will also be available for fans to browse.
Customers that purchase 3,000 yen worth of related goods will be entered into a lottery. Ten winners will receive invitation tickets for completed showcase screening. The first 67 customers that purchase at least 5,000 yen worth of related goods will get an original item as a gift. Items include posters, press sheets, handkerchiefs, and button pins. Pins will also be awarded to customers who pre-order t-shirts on the official website.
The Otakon convention will host the world premiere of the first film in the Kōkyōshihen Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution (Psalms of Planets Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution) anime film trilogy. The screening will take place on August 12 at the Marquis Ballroom from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Chief director Tomoki Kyoda will be in attendance for the screening.
