Entertainment but not entirely satisfying
1 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First off, to anyone who watches this, the show keeps talking about "Neets" and at first I thought that was something specific to the show but it turns out it's just a slang term that you can look up on wikipedia, which I would advise if you don't want to keep wondering about it the way I did for half the series.

As for the show itself, Eden of the East is an entertaining little anime series with an interesting premise. The main character is likable and mysterious, although only a few of the characters have any real personality. The story is engaging and has a number of clever ideas in it.

On the other hand, I have a few issues. While I watched this as "the complete series," it is actually more like a first chapter of a longer work, which is why there are a couple of movie sequels (the first of which was wretched; haven't seen the other). Also, the central premise is fairly nuts, and you never get any really convincing rationale for it.
