Production I.G announces EDEN OF THE EAST, the new animated TV series by world-acclaimed director Kenji Kamiyama. The series is slated in Japan for April 2009 within the popular Fuji Television's late-night time slot Noitamina, a well established guarantee of high rates for animation shows.

Kenji Kamiyama, director of the million-selling "Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex" series and of the award-winning high-fantasy "Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit," is famous for his insightful and intense rendering of human drama and the uncompromising visual quality of his works. This time, he will challenge with a story of youth set in a very near-future Japan, based on an original script written by himself.

"Honey and Clover" celebrated manga artist, Chika Umino is contributing her unique touch for the original character design. "I can feel strong affinity with Umino's approach to the delineation of the characters and her story construction methodology," commented Kamiyama on his collaboration with Umino.

EDEN OF THE EAST is the first original series to be broadcast within Noitamina, the previous shows being transpositions of existing manga or novels. The first series aired in the block was notably Chika Umino's "Honey and Clover" in 2005. Production I.G successfully debuted in the Noitamina block in April 2008 with the series "Library War," directed by Takayuki Hamana.

Chika Umino?? Honey and Clover?! PRODUCTION I.G?!


Edit:
This'll be good, as I read from the plot summary.
Hopefully, this won't disappoint me like how Blood+ did.

The story is pretty original, I haven't seen an anime like this as of late. A naked guy in the street with his memories gone I have high expectations for this anime since episode one came out; though I've been disappoint with various other animes that have had great starts, but horrible or train wreak endings.

The book by Steinbeck, the Korean drama, and the Japanese anime are nothing like each other. Seriously, just because they all have the same name, doesn't mean they're anything a like.

Now for the anime, it does seem really interesting so far. I loved that the English used in the episode is English not Engrish. The English is quite fluent, though they don't quite capture the ascents well. But its nearly normal english and not katakanized engrish. The Opening song is really nice too. And as a side note I just loved how they blocked the naked guy's private parts
