Eden of the East is a communication company founded by Kazuomi Hirasawa.
Eden of the East was originally founded by Kazuomi Hirasawa as a recycling program for his college. However, it slowly evolved into an image recognition application created by Mikuru Katsuhara that was able to collect data on any image scanned by a camera or cell phone. As the group gained more members, Saki Morimi noted that the application could be used to determine the value and history of objects as the software was edited to do thus that. For example, if an image of an apple was scanned, people could comment on what kind of apple it is, value, taste, etc. As the popularity of it grew on campus, the group met restrictions from college administration as many were using it as a matchmaking tool that soon got out of hand.
Despite being located in a small club room on the college campus, Akira Takizawa grew interested in it after hearing it from Saki. He met with Kazuomi and the Eden staff to discuss expanding the business into something much bigger than a college application. Akira would help fund the idea and expand its usage, especially after the second missile attack launched on Japan by Ryo Yuki. After the incident, the request and demand for Eden of the East skyrocketed, which allowed Kazuomi to turn it into a successful business, gaining an office, employees, and much more funding.
Some of the members think that the original goal of creating a NEET paradise has been sacrificed as Kazuomi notes that they are now the successful haves versus the younger have not's that they always complained about. When Saki goes to New York to find Akira based on rumors, the Eden team tries to find information about him before he became a Selecao until to be hacked by Daiju Mononobe and Juiz. Kazuomi decided to shut down the servers after backing up the information and move it temporarily to their old club room to avoid detection as they try to piece together the mystery of the Selecao.
Kazuomi Hirasawa is the founder of Eden of the East and the leader of the group. The original idea was to create a recycling group on campus but changed his mind when he met Mikuru and saw her abilities as a computer programmer. He initial idea was to create a paradise for NEETs but that soon changed when he met Akira and Eden took off like a wildfire.
Saki Morimi was brought on to the group when they saw how she could see the value in all things in the world and how Eden could be used to bring out the value in the items. Although she sees herself as a lowly member of the group, the rest of the team sees her dedication and hard work that goes into Eden.
Mikuru Katsuhara is the computer programmer of the group. She was the one who came up with the idea of creating an image scanner that could recognize and record information on the pictures. Despite being in her early twenties, she is quite small for her age. She is often seen working with Yutaka Itazu.
Yutaka Itazu is a former shut in that had developed the World Computer to calculate probabilities and information. He had worked with the group before he lost his pants and became a shut in and works with the Eden team out of their office after he is run over by Daiju Mononobe. He works mainly with Mikuru to help back up and expand Eden's capabilities.
Haruo Kasuga is one of the original members of Eden and has worked with Kazuomi since they started out. He always wants to show his value and worth to the group in various ways but always doesn't get to help as he planned. Despite this, he is a resourceful and valuable member of the Eden group.
Onee is the oldest member of Eden and somewhat of a NEET. She mostly plays the big sister role to the whole group as everyone refers to her as sis. Her computer abilities are the same as any average person but has helped the Eden team expand and grow. She has also helped with the mysteries revolving around Akira Takizawa and the Selecao.
Satoshi Osugi was an original member of the Eden team who had helped any way he could. However, he found a job after graduating college and left the group to pursue a career as a sales manager. Despite this, he still is friends with the Eden team and works with them when it comes to the Selecao. He is enamored with Saki and is jealous of Akira.
Akira Takizawa is the sole investor behind Eden of the East. He took interest in the idea after he heard it from Saki as he finds it to be a useful tool. Kazuomi is initially cautious of him but it is because of Akira's finances and actions that allow Eden to flourish. Kazuomi also cites Akira as the reason why they wanted to go forward with Eden to find him after he disappeared.
