"As is the trend, popular shows that finish their run tend to have some sort of OVA, whether a full movie or an additional episode. So it also makes sense for when the show gets re-released to also re-release the OVA along with it, which is the case here. Eureka Seven left very few loose ends to clear up, which is probably why Bones opted to take Eureka Seven: Good Night, Sleep Tight, Young Lovers in a different direction. Just how different a direction is this? Let’s see what the movie has to offer."
