The intrigue goes international in The King of Eden, a feature-length conspiracy thriller that continues the action of Eden of the East. The deadly game that began in Japan now intensifies on the streets of New York City. The rules are the same: do whatever it takes to win. Die if you lose.

Takizawa prevented Japan's destruction - and then he vanished. Six months later, clues lead Saki to the Big Apple in search of her missing friend. Meanwhile, the remaining Selecao are plotting their final move. Some of them would prefer Takizawa dead and out of the way. Some might even be willing to help him achieve his goals. Unfortunately, some are prepared to destroy everything if it means claiming checkmate in Mr. Outside's puzzling game.

I know I gave the movie low mark, but please read the review instead of immediately voting down with fanboy rage. I am writing the review for people who haven't seen the King of Eden yet, but who've watched Eden of the East/

I begin by stating I loved the original Eden of the East. The story was fresh and the main characters were loveable. The art style was modern and realistic and the show didn't take itself too seriously, even with a political plot.

This isn't always the case with the movie.

(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

Unique and likable characters, a plot that utilizes its relative sluggishness well, suspense, and excellent animation made Eden of the East a very enjoyable series, but unfortunately was let down by the fact that it only had 11 episodes, which combined with a slow plot meant that the ending was incomplete. However, the slow plot didn’t feel pondering nor did it incite in me a desire to have it move faster, since the advancement of the story and development of the plot and characters was utilized to the fullest extent. Things were revealed slowly but the story kept moving forward- not a moment read more

After hearing mixed reviews I wasn't sure what to expect from The King of Eden. I'm a huge fan of the first season and was really eager to see the continuation of the storyline.

The story essentially picks up from where the first season left off. Takizawa has gone missing and the Eden members are trying to locate him.

There are a few storylines intertwined as well as new Selecao revealed and old favourites returning. I found it was steadily paced, developing the characters further and setting up what I would expect to be an action packed finale.
