Eden of the East (anime)

Somehow, a really weird and yet, endearing anime in some ways. I think most people would be bored or something but i was kind of compelled to keep watching. i liked it overall although i did wish that the ending could have been a little more...to my personal liking :P
A young japanese woman, saki, is in washington dc as part of her graduation trip. When she gets into trouble, a young man with no memories of his own and completely naked, akira, helps her. He's carrying only a gun and a cell phone with 8.2 billion yen in digital money. While they're coming back to Japan, they learn that a new missile attack has taken place again.
What kept me going for this anime was the mystery surrounding it. I was like, man really, what's the deal with him. I wanted to find out who this akira was and all. at times, i thought i might get bored but didn't really as i really didn't want to miss out any clues there were.
It also helped that the main characters were quite pleasing to the eyes. They were not the best i've seen but definitely not the worst either. hmm..i forgot what else i wanted to write but oh well.
seems like this anime still has some sequel if you wiki it. but rather than anime, there are 2 anime films instead. you can watch it on veoh and animecrazy. well hope you enjoy it.
