Delving into the drug cartel politics of South America's post-pandemic future, Hiroki Endo (Tanpenshu) offers up the most complex volume of Eden yet. Elijah initiates a shaky alliance with the Automater, a half-cyborg female crime boss, in order to glean more information about Pedro, the sadistic gangster who mutilated one of Elijah's friends. In a compelling twist, we find out about Pedro's past, his admirable commitment to his brother, and the intricate plan that he hatches in an attempt to save the life of another loved one. As rival gangs fight for power in post-apocalyptic cities, Endo delivers moments of brutal torture, shifting alliances, and poignant reflection, along with his trademark flashes of unexpected violence.
