Product Description

The intrigue boils over in Eden of the East: Paradise Lost, the feature-length conclusion of a truly one-of-a-kind anime saga. Accused of terrorism and feeling the heat, Saki’s high-tech crew is in the crosshairs. Meanwhile, the shroud of mystery covering Takizawa is lifted as he and his fellow Seleção make their final moves. Every game must come to an end. For those playing Mr. Outside’s twisted game of conspiracy thrills, the end comes now.

Amazon.com

As he did in Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex--The Laughing Man, director Kenji Kamiyama brings the Eden of the East saga to a conclusion that feels appropriate yet remains ambiguous. In Paradise Lost (2010), Takizawa and Saki return to Japan to end the game Mr. Outside created involving the 12 special agents known as the Seleçaos. The stakes are high: Takizawa must outwit the police, an entrenched plutocracy, and the remaining Seleçaos. Fortunately, he can count on the assistance of the oddball students of Eden of the East and the NEETS (young men with No Employment, Education or Training) he rescued previously. The object of the potentially deadly game remains unchanged: revitalize the faltering spirit and economy of Japan. Altruistic and compassionate, Takizawa reflects the attitude of the young Japanese who volunteered in record numbers to clean up the aftermath of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. Voice actor Jason Liebrecht makes Takizawa a likable and complex hero who can stay one step ahead of his friends yet command their loyalty. Leah Clark's Saki avoids the clichés of anime heroines whose sympathetic hearts turn them into doormats or crybabies. While Kamiyama ties up some of the strands of his complex narrative, he leaves a number of them hanging, including the possibility of further adventures for Takizawa--a prospect that will cheer the fans who made Eden of the East such a hit. The most interesting of the extras is the Visual Commentary, a program Kamiyama presented to a live audience in April 2010 in which he and his crew discussed the film via onscreen text messages. (Unrated, suitable for ages 14 and older: profanity, violence, risqué humor, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Overall, it was sweet and a good movie to watch.

This is the movie to close the series, and although I enjoyed it, I didn't particularly like how it ended.

Also recommended for lovers of the Bourne Series.

First off I'd just like to say that I'm a huge fan of the New Funimation Eden Of The East-Complete Series Animation Cartoon Dvd TV Spo Promotion Video and the subsequent movie New Funimation Eden Of The East-Movie 1-King Of Eden-Br Animation Cartoon Dvd Trailers 85 Minutes. This film is intended to wrap up the events of the previous two entries and does so in a not so satisying fashion. Now before you people bash me, I just want to say that I still enjoyed the film. What I had a problem with is it's slow pace, lack of information provided for the remaining Selecao, and the anti-climactic way that it ended. In no way are these reasons to avoid purchasing the film. I just wanted to let people know not to get their hopes up for a huge final showdown between the "Air King" and the mysterious Mr. Outside.

In all the movie is a solid 4 out of 5. Without giving away too much of the plot, there is closure between Akira and Saki and Akira's efforts aren't in vain. I hope this review is helpful to those who choose to read it. Thanks for your time.

*Spoilers Ahead*... do NOT read if you do not want to know how it ends.

Same as Joshua Adair's review, please do not bash me. There are some very emotional ppl out there when it comes to these things, so just try to accept the fact that a review can contain an opinion that is different from yours.

This review is for the entire series, not just the last movie.

I, also, loved this series. It has it's flaws, one of them (for me) was a bit inexcusable, but I still say it is worth the time and effort to watch this series and the subsequent movies.

First, the pros; the animation is breathtaking - drool-worthy, beautiful, can't-take-your-eyes-off-it type of thing. One of my favorite things about EotE's look is the choice in color palette. As an artist myself, I know how tough it is to select - and then stick to - a palette. It can literally make of break your piece. Some very wise choices were made here. There was just enough effort made in "effects" (if you can call them that - animation is one big effect, but still), realism, NON-realism, and cartoony-style humor. The animation was almost my favorite aspect of EotE.

The characters were without a doubt my favorite part. They were fleshed out nicely and a perfect mix. I loved the personality differences expressed between each version of Juiz, based on which Selecao 'she' was assigned to. The Eden team was hysterical and, frankly, very believable.

The other Selecaos were a pleasant mix of the frightening, spoiled, odd, powerful and sweet. The Johnny Hunter still fascinates me - I can never reconcile her actions but I can totally sympathize with her cause. Plus, let's face it, she kind of kicks a$$ in the style department.

I was a big fan of the show, or at least the first 2/3 of it or so. The series is animated beautifully, and revolves around a very compelling question we all ask ourselves: given the ability, how would you fix your country?

The movie leading up to this one, King of Eden, was practically a repeat of the plot device used in earlier episodes, except with less of a journey of discovery, less interesting characters being introduced, and a general sense of waiting around before anything important to the happens plot-wise.

I wanted badly for this series to go out with a bang by returning what made this series great to start with: the suspense, the plans that come together over time, the confrontation with other characters given the same opportunity, even the romantic development.

But I can't forgive this movie. There's a lack of compelling narrative, climax, character development, or satisfying resolution. There's no indication that the events of the movie has a meaningful impact on anyone. The main character's childhood experience is covered again. It doesn't lead to an epiphany, the topic just gets dropped later on. There's no confrontation with an antagonist, no obstacle to overcome, just a few travels, a few conversations and a mouthpiece to voice vague speeches about two of the character's hopes for Japan. I would recommend this only to people that were major fans the series and 1st movie.

The net surrounding Saki and her group is closing in. The identity of Mr. Outside is revealed, and so is the secret behind Akira's memory. The series left many questions and this movie answers many. All the great things about the series are represented in this anime too. If you're a fan of Eden of the East, then Paradise Lost is a good movie for you to watch.

This was a really good movie that made you think... just what if the average joe stepped up and wanted to make change. How would the country or world be different? I was still left wanting more at the end. I heard there is another movie but its not dubbed in english... I need to hurry up and learn Japanese fluently.

Spoiler warning.

The series was fantastic. But the two movies not so much.

Promised the protagonist becoming King or prince, never happened.
Promised to declare winner, ended up declaring everyone winner. Completely lost intensity of the game in the movies, changed the rules midway, no more death for losers. Then #1 and #9 decided to work together.Why would a weak speech and 1 yen make the country better?
Promised romance: never happened.
No more fresh ideas: memory wipe again, lost passport again, coming to America again,
Pointless plots: Taki's mother, driving around Juizes 1 and 9, the whole wild goose chase about illegitimate son, why would that make the guy better suited to be a king?
Stopped the game for no good reason, and started the game again for no good reason. .
