Eden of the East is just sort of there.
It's clearly a quality production, but Kamiyama seems to have forgotten to include a hook.
Every now and then there will be something mildly attention grabbing, like the bit with the cop that just reminded me of Crank, the last thing I saw that bit used in.
But most of it seems to be hellbent on being some sort of dreary romantic drama starring a sort of bland hero and a completely boring heroine, who's bashful shojotastic shtick borders on the downright irritating.
Respect for Kamiyama is the inertia keeping me watching, but there are even odds I'll simply forget to look for it next week.
