Synopsis

The story of political and subversive intrigue in the series finally reaches endgame. Even as the law enforcement net tightens around Saki and her fellow Eden of the East associates over alleged terrorist activities, the complex web surrounding the mysterious Mr. Outside is finally untangled as the remaining Selecao attempt to outmaneuver one another. Takizawa's memories and identity are also finally revealed including his association with a former Prime Minister and his request to be the King of Eden.

Many things can be said about the second Eden of the East movie "Paradise Lost." The first thing that would probably be mentioned would be "underwhelming" because compared to the TV series, it is. The ending was definitely unexpected, because unlike EotE which is always so fast paced and high thought process, the end simply tells you the story is over without ending. It's a bit unclear whether this is really the end of EotE.

I'm writing this review to urge you to watch this movie regardless of whether some people on MAL told you this movie was "shit" - because it isn't. It's far read more

As a Higashi no Eden fan, I believe fans deserve a much better ending from writer Kenji Kamiyama. Paradise Lost went against the entire suspenseful plot of the Eden franchise in general. The mystery of the game is inexplicable. There’s no romance between the two main characters. It disappointingly concludes the Higashi no Eden series with illogical conclusions, no clarifications, and even more questions leading to cliffhangers.

*The rest of the review includes minor spoilers.*

This is no longer a dangerous game as it was portrayed to be. Mr. Outside makes an appearance, and he doesn’t fit the script of a criminal mastermind or an evil villain. read more

A disappointing end to what started off as a very intriguing series. I'm sure Eden loyalists will disagree with me. After the rather uneventful first movie I expected movie 2's plot to skyrocket and reach a memorable climax, Instead we have a silly plot, personally I think the plot lost all it's credibility when the selecao began to be granted rather extreme requests e.g. "make me the king of this country" it made me wonder why on earth nobody tried to ask juiz to make them king earlier on.

Takizawa seems to love wiping his memory and regaining it for no good reason other than read more

(It should be noted that this review covers both The King Of Eden and Paradise Lost, and treats them as a continuation of Eden Of The East instead of a separate, standalone entity…because that’s how sequels work. Also, this review is longer than what I normally do, so be warned.)

Horrible. There, that’s my introduction, now let’s just get right to it.

The two Eden Of The East movies were made as a continuation of the show, mainly to satisfy those who wanted answers that the show didn’t give them. In order to properly talk about what these films do right and wrong, I will have to read more
