Our Review : As for the show itself, Eden of the East is an entertaining little anime series with an interesting premise. The main character is likable and mysterious, although only a few of the characters have any real personality. The story is engaging and has a number of clever ideas in it. The animation gives a soft feel to the entire environment, and the plot will keep you glued to the screen. I highly recommend giving the series a shot and seeing what the Selecao can do to save the world.
