Storyline

On November 22, 2010 ten missiles strike Japan. However, this unprecedented terrorist act, later to be called as "Careless Monday," does not result in any apparent victims, and is soon forgotten by almost everyone. Then, 3 months later... Saki Morimi is a young woman currently in the United States of America on her graduation trip. But just when she is in front of the White House, Washington DC, she gets into trouble, and only the unexpected intervention of one of her fellow countrymen saves her. However, this man, who introduces himself as Akira Takizawa, is a complete mystery. He appears to have lost his memory. and he is stark naked, except for the gun he holds in one hand, and the mobile phone he's holding with the other hand. A phone that is charged with 8,200,000,000 yen in digital cash. Written by Production I.G.

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.
