"I sincerely hope that the most hardworking president can find a unique way to continue her work as a savior."

"May you continue to be a savior who arrogantly makes use of the government's powers and yet remains honest."

Juiz sure is blunt. And my thoughts of Juiz being just a computer of sorts is higher. Everyone has their own Juiz? And the Juiz learn to get to know their Selacao better after talking and requests so they can make such personalized "may you continue to be a savior" sayings?

So, Takizawa plans to save blue-haired bitch (I already forgot her name) by having loving sex with his awesome "Johnny" (I'm so sick of that word) with her? Buh huh whuh?
The ending was really strange too. <i>Why</i> did blue-haired bitch decide to put on that magic show at the end? I mean, I'm thinking that's actually Oosugi, not this rapist (perhaps the costume change included some kind of mask), so that would explain that part. But not the wings and the flying and snowflakes (?) and shit.

The ending was strange even though, I was very impressive with it. Higashi no Eden is interesting and more interesting now.

Also, on a side note, isn't it absolutely bizarre and outlandish when, in the car, they see the incident that happened only minutes ago. Even reporters need to write articles first before they publish that. I mean if you count the time you'll take connecting the camera USB to the computer (assuming that you're in a building near there and happen to photo it and also beside a computer), uploading it unto the internet and the time it took Mikuru to actually Google it and/or search it up in any news place (assuming she had fast internet connection that is), I really don't know how that happened unless news technology in 2010 is infinity times better than our technology for broadcasting news anywhere today.
While everyone else is freaking out about the illusion, I was freaking about this. It's completely unrealistic and unnecessary to boot.

So where the fuck is Oosugi? Takizawa wasted a good billion and a half there.

That was some magic trick.

Whoa, a bit confused here and there but it was a fun episode overall.

I always forget to pause when there's new information on the phone (which is a mistake on my part) but it's crazy to think of how the expenses are distributed (as someone above posted some of them).

The illusion at the end kept me at bay, I had no idea what kind of request she made but either way, it was outlandish. It didn't have to be that dramatic if it was only an illusion but then again, the look on Saki's face was priceless.

Also, if it wasn't Ohsugi, it's weird that that rapist had his bag and his phone and knew how to take pictures with a phone that wasn't his...and how to post it on a forum that he frequently visited? I mean, if that really was a fake, how did he know that Ohsugi always posted on that forum? Lost. If anybody can answer my questions, please do. It would really help. :]

It was pretty stupid of Takizawa to buy the entire hotel. There are a ton of ways he could have stopped Kuroha from getting back in that would have been more effective and wouldn't have cost so much of his money.

Surprised that the anime actually seemed to delve into the fantasy realm there. Was it really an illusion? Seems hard to believe, but whatever. Love the animation as usual. So the guy was actually a rapist hm...

Figured that Akira would be the first to find out the dude's whereabouts and rush over to "save" him. I liked the part where Akira and Kuroha were trying to stop each other by ordering Juiz to do stuff~

Rofl, the last scene was laughable. This show has a strange obsession with Johnnies.

I'm shocked that Juiz can do anything, even creating the illusion of massive wings. :|

Hang on, does that mean she changed his face? I actually believed her when she said it weren't Ohsugi. -.-

Finally, I'm actually starting to understand this show a bit more! Wish I didn't drop it weeks ago, it's an amazing show.

Lol, at least they put Ms. Johnny Hunter's log in the end, because I was all WTF!! The developments learned were ok, seeing some of Takizawa's capabilities throughout the episode were good.

Hmmmmm yeah this episode made this anime a little bit less cool for me, it was cool up until the point where everything was ''realistic'' , I mean okay those requests were crazy as hell and so fast wtf, but illusion or not, look @ me I have wings and I'mma fly outta here, hmmmmm little bit too much fantasy stuff for me, but still an awesome and mysterious anime, can't wait to find out about all the questions in my head !!

I wonder what happened to Ohsugi. I think that Shiratori actually did carry him off with her, and used the illusion to make his face appear different to Saki. Shiratori said that the man she carried off with her was a rapist, and as unlikely as it seems, perhaps Ohsugi is the rapist? Shiratori may have staged an illusion to be kind to Saki, so that she wouldn't know her friend was a rapist.

I don't see a reason for that. After all, Shiratori didn't know that Saki was entering the building, and even if she did, she couldn't have known that Saki knew Ohsugi. (Saki didn't call out for Ohsugi even once, did anyone notice that?) Plus, why would she want to be kind to Saki considering she's not much of a caring person. =p And Ohsugi as a rapist? That's more than unlikely, seriously. =D After all, Shiratori wonders why Akira "was mistaken". So I don't think she was messing with Saki there.

On top of that, it has been pointed out several times that the person Shiratori carried away was wearing a different suit and a different tie. Ohsugi was quite drunk when he left the restaurant, so it's not unlikely he lost his bag & mobile phone. Since we never saw Ohsugi actually being taken away by Shiratori, I think your explanation lacks reliable proof in comparison to what's stated above.

Ohsugi is probably still at home, having a hangover and unable to move xD

As for the episode: the growing-wings-and-flying-away part surprised me xD But I liked the pacing of the episode and the way it was presented, really entertaining.

WOW...I loved that episode...ESPECIALLY the ending! I have no idea what others are talking about when they comment on the supposed drop in reality/plausibility of the show. If you wanted plausibility, Takizawa would have been apprehended and arrested for indecent exposure multiple times in the first episode alone and thus would end your show of "reality and plausibility"...less than 30 minutes lol. Anyways, I liked the ending touch with the wings and the fact they they were an ordered "illusion" explains it well enough. Can't wait for the next episode!

it said on Joney hunters cell at the end, that the illussions included costume rental fee, so those that was wondering how she created an illussion of her spouting wings, its an costume not an illussion.

"It seems like you've never gotten any love from a Johnny."
Oh, I see. So she used some kind of illusion. How, I don't even ask.

I wonder...was that whole 'this is actually a rapist' thing by the Johnny taker an illusion too? Or was that really the case...then I wonder what happened to the real Ohsugi.

I hope it was not an illusion, Ohsugi is way too nice to die by...Johnny snippage. >.>

Wait a minute, when they say "Johnnies", they mean a SHMONG??? CUTTING THEIR JOHNNIES OF OMFG?? And the illusionized wings or something, wtf. Just noticed now that this anime is sci-fi so it's probably possible in that world O_o. Yeah I know I'm too slow to understand things lol.

The Eden system was pretty impressive!
Buying the hotel for 1.5Y and using 1.5Y for an illusion~

I didn't think Takizawa's Johnny would be in trouble but I was expecting to revise what he meant by not all Johnny are dangerous or bad like that.. I always had one hehe

So it wasn't Oosugi~ I remember way back ep 5 that there was a man looking at Oosugi while he was really drunk, maybe he rob Oosugi and Selecao no. 11 happen to dislike those actions and take out her mission

That was so random. Wings? Really? And Takizawas naked again, what a surprise.
Also the whole trying to seduce a murderer thing was really ridiculous.

I didn't get this episode at all. Maybe the next will make more sense...

I do have the agree with what some others said, the ending really was like wtf... even for an illusion if they are aiming for being realistic (to whatever sense that may mean lol) it is still a bit a reach to make it seem like she had wings and flew away... well anyway besides that it was a solid episode overall.

Was Takizawa about to have sex with the Johnny Hunter? Bold move considering she snips off the Johnnies of those that suck in bed. Takizawa must have been pretty confident of his sexual skills!!

It worked out well because he collapsed and the Johnny Hunter seemed to have taken a liking to him.

u know thats he's a bad@$$ when he can do things like that.

but damn that last minute just droped my jaw. i was thinking this was a realistic anime, and than that happens, u might as well have akira have a magic sword and fight demons with his money.

Okay, I was ready to give this show a 10 based off of the first few episodes, but damn, what was that? I don't care about all this bitching about the illusion or the timestamps or whatever. That's fine. What I don't get is why, when a man's dick is on the line, everyone just, well, dicking around, acting so nonchalantly. "Oh, our friend's been kidnapped by someone who is going to cut off his dick and make him bleed to death. Let's not call the cops." And buying the hotel? He bought off the prime minister for 60 bucks! Wire the hotel manager a few thousand yen, and he'll haul ass up the tower, bust down the door, key or not, and get the guy the hell out of there.

I mean, bad choice. If she had been a serial killer instead of a serial-dick-snipper, I wouldn't have cared about this stuff. I can overlook a ton of crap and still love a show. But when she wants to cut off a guy's goods, I feel very strongly about the issue.

Now I'm not really sure where the boundaries are, like someone else previously mentioned. Seriously, flying wings as an illusion (not that Juiz's power can be doubted) but overall it seemed alright. Though, you have to wonder what happened to Ousigi (he was safe the whole time? or there wasn't a point for akira to risk himself like that?) interesting, anyway

I have a HUGE hunch that this Eden Technology will be used to mark out who the Selaco's are, and will also eventually mark the Supporter. This will give an advantage to all other Selaco's, and can actually probably end up saving Takizawa.

Also, not sure what to think about the girl now being insanely confused about what's going on lol. Takizawa is also pissing his money away pretty fast O_o

P.S: Those wings you see everywhere, on the dog, on the Johnny Girl, all represent the "Wings Of Justice", if I had to take a guess.

Anyway it seems the woman isn't exactly that evil, she kills rapists and scum. But yeah she's still twisted.

Also Akira was the one behind careless monday? I guess it was to be expected, but still caught me by surprise. I guess it has something to do with "saving" the country. Let's see.

Ok I just finished this show and I liked it a lot even tho they kinda dropped the ball on the last episode but what the hell are you guys talking about when you say "illusion"? Did I have my head up my ass at some point and not realize it or something? Could you please tell me on my profile so I don't have to check for replys.

So it's been playing bait and switch with us for three episodes? Whatever, man.

The only interesting thing is that Kuroha was killing "the enemies of womankind" and "importing fabulous foreign men". Does that imply that Japanese men are the enemies of womankind or is importing foreign men just shallow exoticism?

This series seems to be trying to say a lot about Japanese culture but I don't have the context to understand it so I don't know what's going on.
