Odex Licenses Final Eureka Seven: Hi - Evolution Film in Southeast Asia

Feb 07, 2022 07:44 AM

Odex revealed on Monday that it has licensed Eureka: Eureka Seven: Hi - Evolution, the third and final film of the Eureka Seven: Hi - Evolution (Kōkyōshihen Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution) trilogy. Odex will screen the film in theaters in Southeast Asia, but it did not reveal an opening date.

Eureka: Eureka Seven: Hi - Evolution opened in Japan in November 2021. The film was originally slated to open in 2019, but was delayed to early summer 2021, and then delayed again to November 2021 due to the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic and its influence on the production schedule.

The third film's story is set 10 years after the end of the previous film's "Great Unification," which brought the people from the virtual world inside the Scub Coral into the real world. The population of the world is now divided into the Green Earth, the people from the Scub Coral world; and the Blue Earth, the people of the real world. Their co-existence is far from peaceful, with many conflicts behind the scenes unfolding. Dewey Novak, the military leader of the Green Earth, decides to conduct terrorist attacks as a way to protect themselves.

Eureka, hated by the world as a symbol and origin of the world's division, now works as a top military operative in the U.N. covert ops agency A.C.I.D., still fighting to protect a fragile peace as a form of atonement. Her special mission is to protect Iris, a "new Eureka," born from the Scub Coral like her, and wielding her old ability to manipulate it. While confrontational at first, they grow to understand each other's loneliness. Eureka will have to push herself to the limit to keep both Iris and the world safe.

Dai Sato did not write the film. Director Tomoki Kyoda and Eureka Seven scriptwriter Yuuichi Nomura collaborated on the film's script instead.

Some of the new cast members for the film voice characters from the EUREKA SEVEN AO anime, or other Eureka Seven media, while most others are entirely new characters.

Musical unit Hentai Shinshi Club and singer-songwriter kojikoji performed the theme song "Eureka (feat. kojikoji)" for the film.

The second film, Anemone: Kōkyōshihen Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution (Anemone: Eureka Seven: Hi - Evolution), opened in Japan in November 2018, and it ranked at #9 in its opening weekend. Odex screened the film in Southeast Asia in late 2018 and early 2019.

The first film opened in September 2017, after making its worldwide debut at Otakon in August 2017. In its first two days, the film earned about 63 million yen (about US$561,137). Odex screened the first film in Southeast Asia in late 2017.
