5.0 out of 5 stars The game draws to a close, 23 Jan 2012
This review is from: Eden Of The East Movie 2 - Paradise Lost [DVD] (DVD)
This second `Eden of the East' movie takes off where the first film `King of Eden' left off with Takizawa and Saki returning to Japan where he is suspected of being both a terrorist and the illegitimate son of the former Prime Minister. As he and his friends continue attempting to make Japan a better place they are also in the sights of the remaining Seleção and the Japanese government, but with the game coming to a close can Takizawa do enough to win while discovering the truth about his past?

Although it probably isn't quite as good as the previous film and is somewhat slow in places this second and final movie does conclude the series rather nicely. While I am sure there will be some who will be disappointed with the conclusion of this interesting and thoughtful series, I enjoyed the film very much. The plot takes off exactly where the previous film left off and although there are still some questions left at the end, I do feel that this conclusion was generally satisfying. I am still not much of a fan of the animation style used for the films and the series itself, I will admit it is growing on me and I like it better than I did at the beginning. The English voice acting is as good as it was in the series as well.

Overall this has been a very entertaining series and as a whole I would give the entire thing a full five stars. As for `Paradise Lost', it probably isn't the best part of the series but anyone who has watched Eden of the East from the beginning should enjoy it and I feel it deserves around four and a half stars.
