Eden of the East is now available to watch on Netflix from beginning to end, and you can follow that up with part one of the King of Eden movie (run the movie AFTER season one of the series). The story is simple; a dozen people have been given cell phones with a huge bank account attached, and they will either be the first to save Japan, or they will die at the hands of the folks who set up the project. A few work towards that goal, a few use the money for their own fanatic purposes, and a few try to destroy the country and everyone in it in the hopes they can escape their fate by eliminating those who may come back to neutralize them. This is one of the more interesting stories I have seen in the last few years, so I figured I should mention it here, and both the animation and the character development make this worth a look.
