Eden of the East – First Impressions

Eden of the East or Higashi no Eden is one of the cool anime that didn’t even make my Spring 2009 anime watchlist but with Sengoku Basara being lame after the first 2 episodes I decided to replace it with Eden of the East. I’ve heard nothing but good things about this anime from my friends and through buzz on the interwebs so after watching the first 5 episodes I must say the praises are well deserved.

Saki is too cute and adorable she is begging to be jumped

Eden of the East stars Saki Morimi and Akira Takizawa. Saki travels to Washington DC on her graduation trip and through bizarre circumstances runs into a naked Akira who has seemingly lost his memory. His only possessions are a gun and a cellphone and with the help of Saki rediscovers his name and together they return to Japan. The main story evolves around a mysterious group known as “noblesse oblige” and an event called “Careless Monday” an apparent terrorist attack in Japan that results in massive property damage over a large area but absolutely no loss of life.

The story of Eden of the East is believable and intriguing enough and the cast so far is made up interesting characters each with their own role to play. What I like the most though is the use of real world places and landmarks in the anime, I even saw the Spy Museum which I visited when in Washington DC last year. Eden of the East so far is a well balanced anime that provides humor, character development and story. I am looking forward to watching all of the expected 11 episodes and will post a  full review then. Anybody else currently watching Eden of the East?
