First Look @ Eden of the East

Episode 01 (8.5/10 Really Good!)
Making a wish by throwing a penny in the White House fountain. What a lovely thought.
A happy-go-lucky terrorist and a dreaming tourist – and beautiful character designs compliments of Umino Chika, whom I love! (Despite the fact that she only has probably 4 character designs in all her work.) Anyone can see the hard work that was put into this show. It’s not your average anime. You actually have American characters speaking good English! If that doesn’t show the depth of the (budget) work put into this, look at the artwork! I love Akira… he reminds me so much of Morita-senpai from Honey and Clover. I can’t wait to see where the story goes!
Suggestive Content:
Quite a bit of nudity on Akira’s part. A policewoman later in the episode asks to see his private area to identify him. Foul language.
Animation: 10/10
Characters: 9/10
Writing: 9/10
Pacing: 9/10
Enjoyment: 10/10 (It’s wonderful to see a show that doesn’t disappoint…)
