Synopsis

On November 22, 2010 ten missiles strike Japan. However, this unprecedented terrorist act, later to be known 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, is stark naked, except for the gun he holds in one hand, and the mobile phone he's holding in the other. A phone that is charged with 8,200,000,000 yen in digital cash.

Higashi no Eden (or Eden of the East however you want to call it) is a new anime series produced by Production I.G, and it was one of the most anticipated series of the Spring 2009 season. After quite an impressive trailer before the anime aired, I just knew I had to watch this show which looked like it had a lot of promise. Did it live up to my expectation? Read ahead to find out.

Story:
+ This anime definitely brings a very interesting plot.
+ The level of mystery and suspense will leave the viewer wanting more every episode.
+ Definitely one of the most refreshing read more

For as long as I can remember, anime of the mystery genre have proven creatively stale. As a rule, trying to find a gratifying mystery is an ordeal much like rummaging for haute couture in a dark, creaky charity shop that smells faintly of mothballs. Foremost amongst the dust-caked offerings, Darker than Black collapses into a morbid mess; low-grade Fantastic Children keeps things cheap and cheerless; and the snail-paced Ghost Hound dulled my senses to such an extent that I never saw its middle episodes.
How delightfully reassuring, then, to discover Eden of the East; this, unlike the aforementioned failures, begins on a much higher bar read more

After watching Eden of the East, it was way better than what I had expected. The story line in the TV show could be a but hard to follow at times and you have to pay attention. The show had a good mixture of action, mystery, and comedy. I do feel as though the relationship of Akira and Saki could have been more in depth. Many unsolved questions in the show were solved in the following movies. Although the plot was weak in some parts the overall feel of the show left the viewer satisfied as they finished the series.

I really enjoyed watching this anime read more

I haven't watched the movies yet so this review will solely be about the anime. Higashi no eden has a very interesting plot. Whoever says that this anime is a rip off of Mirai nikki he has just seen only the first three episodes. Those two anime shouldn't even compared. While Higashi is not as mindfuck and violent as mirrai nikki is way smarter. But still even though it had a unique plot it still missed that something that didn't manage to make me love it. Also it leaves a lot of unanswered things so you have to watch the movies to have a complete read more

Recommendations

Users with cellphone in a survival game aiming for the top to be granted supremacy.
doing what's best for the world is the aim in both..
in death note using a note to get rid of criminals, in Higashi no Eden there is a mobile phone that grants any wish for it's carrier.. and they both have some rules that makes it more like a game..
they also share that there is a companion with each one (shinigami in death note, and juiz in HNE)
Both of them have this mysterious feel around the plot and characters working behind the scenes for a larger vision.
The biggest similarity of these shows is the same theme, the money. Also there are few miniature similarities in the story as well.
Very similar concepts which use domestic terrorists to critique the Japanese government. They each have nice OSTs and cinematography but Eden accomplishes the terrorism/social-critique angle much more effectively than ZnT.
It's detective and full of adventures. You can find many similar things.
