After preventing Japan's destruction, Akira Takizawa made one final request to become the "King of Japan," before he erased his memories once again and disappeared. Leaving Saki Morimi with his cellphone, the only clue she has in regards to Akira's whereabouts is the message, "I'll be waiting where our journey started." Six months later, rumors have spread about Akira, and Saki's search leads her to New York City. However, Saki is not the only person who goes to investigate—with several billion yen burning a hole in their pockets and a challenge to "save Japan," the remaining Seleção are not far behind. Some are willing to help Akira achieve his goals, but a few are making dangerous moves in order to eliminate him and achieve their own picture of a better Japan. With rising stakes and new revelations, the game is still on.

Better have the other movie on hand because the plot only gets thicker from here folks!


I really adore the Eden of the East franchise and this movie delivered more of the same content.


I couldn’t tell you jack about what happens in this.


Mandatory viewing for those that enjoyed the main series as it focuses on main plot progression.


Continuation of a pretty solid battle royal show.


I’m glad there was a continuation, the series left a lot of unanswered questions.


If you are two seasons in, you might as well finish it
