I also don't understand somethings:
Help would be very appreciated.

How did the NEETs betray him?

They helped with the evacuation and were accused of knowing about the missles in advance and were blamed in rumors. Then they stole some things from the evacuees. Then the guy kidnapped them and shipped them to Dubai so that umm... people would forget about them and stop accusing them. And so the NEETs would hate him instead of the government or evacuees? Then he sent all but one of them back in crates still naked?

So where in that story does he get betrayed and depressed? If he can make himself look like a villian I don't get why being disliked makes him depressed.

What happened to the previous owner of the dog? Did she... kill herself or something?

Why did Akira say he was evil and they were all gonna die and then a few minutes later say 'hey everyone let's save Japan'?

Why delete his memory at the end? Why give her the phone?
I guess it's explained in the movies, idk.

Why were the first and later missles launched anyway? To make Japan want to rebuild itself and have new political will to address problems? I didn't get why #10 thought that was how to fix a country. Why did Saki think careless monday would cause change?

And why didn't any of the other 11 selecao just ask for a huge government position, they didn't want to or think Juiz could set them up with that?

How does pointing your camera at a missle and labeling it help bring it down? Juiz could've done it herself anyway.

Why was he naked with a gun in DC the first episode? Why was #1 there too? Why did he have all those passports and guns?

Why did #1 kill that fat guy only to tell the main guy everything and let him interfere? Did he just not care about #10's plan?

Is Mr. Outside #12 alive then? Since when can Juiz disobey orders like champagne?

What was the significance of Saki's interview abuse? To show that Japan's corporate structure is bad and needs to be eliminated?

That is a lot of questions. I'd appreciate some feedback!!

you really need to watch the movies...it will explain most (not all) of what you and everyone wants to know.
there are just way too many questions for it to only be 11 ep, which is why they made the movies.
you will still have many questions after paradise lost.
it is just that kind of show...sorry...

"The fat guy" didn't die. There's a brief glimpse of him in the hospital at the end.

I don't know.. the entire show seemed about explaining NEETs as some revolutionary counter culture with the power to change the world. Much of the plot line just didn't make logical sense.

Like that one guy wanting to become "head NEET" by forming an influential company based around Eden. Ok... once you start a company you're obviously not a NEET anymore... and as I recall, he was postponing his school graduation, which means he wasn't a NEET in the first place.

I went into this show expecting something great and the first couple episodes pulled me in, but somewhere it just became so preposterous. Don't get me wrong, it's entertaining and I don't regret watching it... but it wasn't nearly as good as I'd hoped.
