Higashi no Eden - Movie I: The King of Eden Episode 1 Discussion

I felt the movie could have been structured better, as pacing was an issue and the climax really didn't leave me on edge like it probably should have done, but the movie was okay. Loved the reference to The Man Who Stole the Sun.

Not that great compared to the series. That's not to say it was bad either, but it didn't really answer many questions, and it seemed to move really slow compared to the series. Saki was incredibly stupid for most the movie, I don't know what Akira sees in her, aside from the fact that she's cute. At times it feels like it's trying to be Death Note, with the memory erasing, the attempts and interesting twists, even the way Number 1 talks. Of course it's not as good though.

I don't know why I'm so biased to this anime. XD I love shows that have this mystery/action aspect along with a city setting. :P Plus I love the characters in Higashi no Eden.
I adore the OST for this movie and the OP/ED music. I liked the romantic moments. I liked the Selaco parts too.

Seeing "The Catcher in the Rye" mentioned was a plus. :P I love that book. xD It was one of the rare books I actually read in school. =/
And this is why I love Production IG. I think it's nice that they often allude to things, for anyone who had read The Catcher in the Rye, they would also see the connection of the carousel and the book. It's really interesting. Production IG also made lots more allusions in Psycho Pass as well. Leaves more room for thoughts.
That aside, I loved the movie! In the last 10 minutes of the movie, I decided to check how many minutes was left, and I was shocked! I didn't think the movie would end so quickly! It had my attention the whole way through. I also liked how Juiz seems to have more personality , especially her interaction with No.6. She was definitely snarky XD Seems like Juiz also really likes Akira. She sounded disappointed when Akira said he wanted to cancel his request. And wow, Kuroha. At first I really didn't like her, but she actually sacrificed her cart. Then again, if she's out of the game, I would think that actually makes her safe from elimination. Which reminds me, I also don't understand how Ryou is still alive just by destroying his phone. Hm. Next movie, here I come!
Oh yeah I totally forgot...that part when Kuroha leaves Akira and Saki was done beautifully. Her black scarf flowing in the wind = the black wings in that illusion from that one episode. I'm not good with symbolism, but I think it shows that Kuroha is like a guardian of Akira (kind of...a dark guardian? o_O)

DAT misunderstanding lol in the beginning with the gun.
Looks like 6 months has passed by huh? Wow, time flies fast. Nice to see Saki and Akira together again for a bit. I lol'd @ the people thinking of what those might do at the apartment hahaha
Akira's home really reminds me of this building I saw on television a few years though. Maybe it's just me or something. Overall movie was okay I guess, wasn't as exciting as I originally had hoped..

The misunderstanding scene is funny so whenever she goes to America she always loses something her hair this time is also cute.
It didn't feel like a movie to me but it was good a lot of things are explained I'm glad that Kuroha is helping Akira and I hope the whole story is going to be resolved in the second movie and I can't wait to watch it but I gotta sleep :/
Will watch it later ;)

Explained a lot and gives new questions (but I am scared few of them won't be answered?) Nice!
Who the hell are those black suits at merry-go-round who attack them together with this crazy number 6?
Why Kuroha (11) didn't tell Juiz to move truck number 10 to front? 10 is already out of game so why she sacrifice herself. It is not like she couldn't request that.
I am ok with Juiz able to change Takizawa past in internet, but how can she delete other selcao doings from reports in selcao phones? That is cheating, or is it that she only deletes it from Eden data and it still can be seen in Selcao phones? If not then will we get to know who Takizawa really was before all this started?
It is strange but also nice to see Juiz be more emotional to all Selcao.
I am disappointed that Pantsu got tricked by Juiz and number 1(?).
I don't get that number 2 Tsuji motives...
I liked the idea that selcao who lose don't die like number 5 professor. This trick with wife killing number 4 cop earlier has even stronger effect now in movie.
Lol at the part where Akira talks in Japanese to American taxi driver.. wtf is that? They can't understand each other but they do understand? That part is stupid still full part with taxi driver is funny.
hmm what else? I liked all those funny moments in movie.
off to the last movie :)

I hate it when anime/manga that I enjoyed ends, especially when there could be much longer plot and when I love main heroine :P
I wish I had magic glasses that let me see real world in anime colors ;)
