So Many Questions: Eden of the East!

Posted by Neko Kyou in Thoughts on June 20th, 2009

I knew from the start that Eden of the East will end hanging. I thought I was ready for it, but I was wrong!

Damn it.

Did Takizawa wiped his memory again?

The sound from the phone and the way his mouth gaped was the same as in the first episode when he wiped his memory the first time. It’s safe to assume that’s what he did and then pre-programmed himself to slip his phone into Saki’s pocket.

What does he hope to achieve as King?

So all the hints about Takizawa being a Prince was referring to this moment. He became the King of Japan, or would it be more accurate to say the new Emperor.

And wouldn’t he be taken out by the Supporter for finishing up his money?

It happened to the good doctor. But since Panties is still alive after being presumed dead, it’s possible that the Supporter did not kill the doctor and that he is merely being held captive. Just a hunch.

What exactly is #1’s plan?

He seemed quite glad that Takizawa managed to stop the missiles, even though he was the mastermind behind it. He was also there when Takizawa first wiped his memory. It’s possible that there’s more to him than he’s letting out right now.

When will those of us outside Japan get to see the first movie?

It’s probably going to be a long, long time before we get to see it… And it’s probably going to be another cliffhanger ending that leads to the 2nd movie…

    Why would he be taken out by the supporter? The penalty is not for running through one’s budget. It is for running through the budget without saving the country. If becoming King was some brilliant move that ends up saving the country, he’s fine. But nobody will know whether or not that’s the case immediately, they have to wait and see. I think that’s why they showed us Itazu’s request for the Carps to win the season. It resulted in a trade immediately, but will they win the season?

    I was under the impression that you will get taken out the moment you spent your last time.

    But I don’t think the Supporter will wait months or even years to see whether or not becoming King will save the country, unless Akira somehow managed to come up with some insane plan like Zero Requiem.
