As I was going through my RSS feeds for the day, I stumbled across a trailer for Eden of the East. This show has been around since 2009, but Funimation has just started advertising for its North American release in English. From what I saw on the trailer it looked pretty good. I'll be anticipating the release of it here because it looks like something worth adding to the collection.
Based on the description from AnimeNewsNetwork this story revolves around a terrorist event in 2010 when 10 missiles strike Japan. After the incident this mysterious guy comes and saves this girl who is living in the US when she gets into some trouble. The guy appears to have lost his memory and only has a cell phone loaded up with cash and a gun.
Based on the story description alone, it doesn't sound like anything worth jumping through hoops for, but after watching the trailer, this story doesn't seem so bland.
