Eden of the East

on 9/16/2013

I won't spoil anything here and I won't bother giving a plot synopsis because you can read it on here already; what I will say is that the mysteries are all enticing at first, but like so many mysteries, the answers don't live up to the questions. After learning the truth behind the plot, I was excited for where the show could go with it, but it... didn't, really. The plot sort of fumbles along without really taking advantage of the tools it's set up, and in the end it leaves you feeling unsatisfied. The two sequel movies are absolutely necessary if you care at all about the story or closure, but even with them you'll probably feel disappointed. This is simply my opinion, however - you may find something here that I didn't. On the plus side, the characters are pretty great (except for the protagonist during "King of Eden", who is very lacking in personality for that movie only for reasons that will be clear if you watch it), and their interactions are very real. The mystery, while it lasts, is intriguing enough to keep you watching to learn more, even if you're ultimately unsatisfied with the denouement. The animation and artwork are beautiful and the music is good enough. Overall, I think that Eden of the East is worth a watch for those curious, but not worth a purchase unless you just really take to it. Read More

Eden of the East

on 5/3/2014

Calling this a movie is probably not correct, it is just a longer episode in the series. Trying to watch it as a stand alone movie would not be practical, as the first episodes of the series contain all the character development, and develope the story. The negative reviews sadly did just this, watching only the movie. What they did was open a book half way through it, then complain the characters weren't developed and you know nothing about the story. The movies end without explaining because it was already explained, and there is another movie coming out to tie up the loose ends in this one. Please, do not pick up the movie believing you can watch it without watching the series. If you loved the series, you will love the movie. It picks up where it left off and moves on, and the end (just like the series) leaves you wanting more. Luckily, the next movie is coming soon. Here we even learn more about the "hero's" past, that make you go o yeah from things that were said in the first episodes. Read More
