Synopsis

College student Saki Morimi is on a trip in the United States at what she believes to be the center of the world, Washington, DC. While at the White House, she has a misunderstanding with the local police, only to be bailed out by a stark naked young man who is brandishing a gun and a phone! During this timeframe, on the other side of the world, Japan has suffered a missile attack.

The young man she meets is Akira Tokizawa. He's a Seleção, one of twelve individuals participating in a game that involves “saving” Japan. He has ¥8.2 billion in digital currency left in his phone to use as he deems necessary. If the money is squandered, or the mission is failed, then he will be eliminated.

As Higashi no Eden unfolds, Akira will meet the other Seleção, including a serial killer and a police detective, and discover what really happened during the “Careless Monday” terrorist attack, along with the reason why his memories were wiped.

Synopsis


One autumn evening at a mysterious ramen stand behind the Shimogamo Shrine, a lonely third-year college student bumps into a man with an eggplant-shaped head who calls himself a god of matrimony. Meeting this man causes the student to reflect upon his past two years at college—two years bitterly spent trying to break up couples on campus with his only friend Ozu, a ghoulish-looking man seemingly set on making his life as miserable as possible. Resolving to make the most out of the rest of his college life, the student attempts to ask out the unsociable but kind-hearted underclassman Akashi, yet fails to follow through, prompting him to regret not living out his college life differently. As soon as this thought passes through his head, however, he is hurtled through time and space to the beginning of his years at college and given another chance to live his life.

Surreal, artistic, and mind-bending, Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei chronicles the misadventures of a young man on a journey to make friends, find love, and experience the rose-colored campus life he always dreamed of.

  • Episodes: 22
  • Aired: October 2012 to March 2013

Synopsis

Justice, and the enforcement of it, has changed. In the 22nd century, Japan enforces the Sibyl System, an objective means of determining the threat level of each citizen by examining their mental state for signs of criminal intent, known as their Psycho-Pass. Inspectors uphold the law by subjugating, often with lethal force, anyone harboring the slightest ill-will; alongside them are Enforcers, jaded Inspectors that have become latent criminals, granted relative freedom in exchange for carrying out the Inspectors' dirty work.

Into this world steps Akane Tsunemori, a young woman with an honest desire to uphold justice. However, as she works alongside veteran Enforcer Shinya Kougami, she soon learns that the Sibyl System's judgments are not as perfect as her fellow Inspectors assume. With everything she has known turned on its head, Akane wrestles with the question of what justice truly is, and whether it can be upheld through the use of a system that may already be corrupt.
