This is a superb anime that i would rate right up there with any blockbuster movie or tv series.
If you like conspiracy theories, intricate plots and superb animation then this is gold dust!
I'm a big fan of "Perfect Blue", "Ghost in the Shell" and "Baccano" if you also like them then get this as well. I have read a few reviews that say its "too short" and that it "doesn't explain anything"...yeah at the end of the series there are a lot of unanswered questions but there are 2 more films that follow on from there that wrap things up quite nicely, It's like complaining at the end of the first "Matrix" or "empire strikes back" that the story wasn't finished, some times you have to have patience and all will come good in the end.
A sign of a good anime (i think) is the opening titles, some of my favourites are "Cowboy Bepop" (what a tune!) and "Paranoia Agent". E.O.T.E's may seem confusing at first but after afew episodes the images start to make sense and there are even little clues as to whats going on.
I hate long reviews so i shall wrap up now, this is pretty much faultless, good story, animation and characters. I would recommend to anyone (over 15).
What appears initially to be a post-apocalyptic event - the series set soon after Careless Monday, when an unexplained missile strike took out large sections of downtown Tokyo and targeted five other major cities - soon turns out to be only the tip of the iceberg. Finding himself naked in Washington DC, with his memory wiped, Akira Takizawa gradually discovers that he is part of some elaborate and dangerous game, one of twelve ordinary Japanese citizens selected by a mysterious organisation to be a Seleção, armed with a special phone and access to ten billion yen, charged with coming up with a solution to the crisis facing Japan, and given free-rein to interpret this aim and spend the money in whatever way they see fit.
The subject of a selected group of powerful individuals who have the power to either save the world from a looming apocalypse or themselves bring it about is a fairly common anime subject, but Eden of the East is paced rather differently from such series and appears to have other aims than just the usual build-up to an epic grand-scale destruction of the planet.Read more ›
This two disc set includes all eleven episodes of the `Eden of the East' anime and I must say that it is probably one of the best series that I have seen in a while. The plot is complicated but very interesting with some very nice developments as the series continues and includes some nice humour here and there as well. The English dub is good and the characters are all interesting and likable.
If the series has a problem it is that the mixture of CGI and traditional animation doesn't really gel in places and the ending leaves some things still hanging but these are minor problems and the general quality of the plot itself more than makes up for them.
As well as this series there are also apparently a number of `Eden of the East' movies which I hope will be released in the near future as this series is truly excellent.
The characters are good, especially the lead, some of the others are slightly annoying in places - but no worse than any other anime. The concept is very intriguing, lots of money to effect change - if you want spoilers read elsewhere
As for the price, delivery, packaging - flawless, no problems at all.

It’s all here. A strangely persuasive anime that drew me in. Disturbing at times, but compelling all the same! An army of NEET’s is one of the weirder aspects of this story. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Mr R. J. Ellicott
