    Director Kenji Kamiyama's masterful Eden Of The East saga continues with The King Of Eden, the highly anticipated feature-length movie sequel to his original 11-episode animated TV series.

    The movie begins immediately where the series left off, with Saki Morimi arriving in New York in search of her new friend Akira Takizawa, who has once again brainwashed himself and disappeared after leaving her his Selecao phone and a message to meet him where their original journey began.

    Following recent events, Saki's friends at the Eden Of The East project have developed their work into a successful small business thanks to the international recognition of their computer software's role in preventing a series of missile attacks on Japan. Meanwhile, images of Taki pointing at the missiles and determining their destruction have circulated the globe turning him into a folk hero people are calling the "Air King".

    Finally tracking down Taki to a riverside location where they spent time together shortly after they first met, Saki explains to him his past and his role as a Selecao, a pawn in a mysterious and deadly game to "save Japan". Meanwhile, other Selecao are monitoring their movements with one, in particular, intent on assassinating Taki and catching the event on film.
