On November 22, 2010, Japan was hit by missile strikes, a terrorist act that fortunately did not harm anyone, becoming known as "Careless Monday." Quickly forgotten, society goes on about their lives as normal. During her graduation trip to America three months later, friendly college student Saki Morimi's life is forever changed when she finds herself saved from unexpected trouble by Akira Takizawa. Takizawa is cheerful, but odd in many ways—he is stark naked and suffers from amnesia, believing himself to be a terrorist. In addition, he possesses a strange cell phone loaded with 8.2 billion yen in digital cash. Despite Takizawa's suspicious traits, Saki quickly befriends the enigmatic young man. However, unbeknownst to her, this is the beginning of a thrilling death game involving money, cell phones, and the salvation of the world. Higashi no Eden chronicles Saki's struggle to unravel the mysteries behind her savior, while Takizawa himself battles other individuals armed with similar cell phones and returning memories which reveal his possible connection to the event from months ago.

Clever mystery anime that feels as thrilling as a Bourne flick would. However, with a unique flair that has to be experienced to understand.


One of my all time faves and my personal favorite Battle Royal show.


Seriously underrated. A bit difficult to understand in the beginning but it gets really interesting.


Quite an odd Anime because of it’s influence from western hollywood structured story telling. Still very good characters and story.


It’s like the anime version of the Borne movies except less killer more philanthropist. I really loved it from start till finish.


Very interesting concept with shoddy pacing. Really needed more episodes to develop. Definitely worth the watch still.


Plot goes nowhere interesting and amnesia is an auto-negative, otherwise the characters are fairly well-developed and it has its moments.
