The first DVD volume of Eureka 7 streets on April 25th.

More details on the DVD release from AnimeNation:

Bandai Entertainment has officially announced plans for a domestic release of Eureka Seven anime, manga, and music. Bandai will release the first Eureka Seven DVD on April 25th in a $24.98 disc only edition and a $59.98 disc with collector's box, t-shirt, manga with exclusive cover, and CD soundtrack.

In addition to the DVD release set for April 25th, Bandai Entertainment Inc. has plans to release two manga series, a four volume adaptation of the series storyline and a two volume series based on the Eureka Seven video game prequel story, as well as a stand alone soundtrack. There are also plans in the works to broadcast the series on a premier TV network.

Why I care: I've seen the first few episodes of this series via fan-sub downloads, and judging just from that, it's going to live up to the hype. Plus the series was produced by my second favorite anime studio -- Studio Bones -- so I'm pretty excited to see the rest of this one.
