New Eden of the East II Trailer Surfaces!

One Word: Underwhelming

  
  
News from the grapevine is that everyone's favorite named blog, the juiz.blog has started streaming a 50 second trailer of their upcoming Eden of the East movie. Eden of the East II: Paradise Lost, is the sequel to EotE I: King of Eden, and starts roughly around the area the 11 episode series left off.
 
Despite being super excited for anything related to Eden of the East, this trailer didn't wow me. Actually, I can't really place it... like, the first movie wasn't jaw dropping, but something just doesn't fit here. Like, it just reeks of a generic construction, and EotE is anything but generic.
 
Oh well. The second movie comes out in Japanese theatres March 13th, and the series will come out in the US when FUNimation gets done doing their voodoo on it.

Where's the Higashi no Eden love? I have no idea what's going on in this trailer, since I haven't seen movie numero uno, but I really love the hopeful feel of the trailer.

I had to watch it twice to realize it's just a bunch of scenes with no emotion or spoilers at all. Boo-hoo.

gia pretty much summed it up for me. I have nothing else to add, sorry.

That's it! I had watched even the first trailer a couple times and couldn't pen why I didn't get jazzed for this. There's almost no emotion. You're so smart.

Hmm, interesting. I definitely felt a very strong optimism...although I suppose more from the music than the characters.
