The Man Who Lived Too Little (ハカナ過ギタ男 Hakanasugita Otoko?) is the ninth episode of the Eden of the East anime television series. It aired on June 4, 2009.


"Pantsu" manages to recover the complete Seleção transaction history from Kondō's phone, and discovers that the Seleçãos were indeed responsible for Careless Monday, as well as a series of mysterious evacuations in the targeted areas beforehand that ensured there were no casualties. Takizawa was also apparently responsible for the 20,000 missing NEETs. Takizawa makes "Pantsu" promise not to tell Saki or Micchon about what they discovered, and leaves the phone with him in hopes of fully repairing it. Before they leave, Saki asks "Pantsu" about the phone, but he warns her that she is better off not knowing.

Meanwhile, Mononobe (Seleção No. 1) and Yuuki (Seleção No. 10) follow Takizawa to Kyoto, curious about his intentions. "Pantsu" discovers that Seleção No. 10 was responsible for the missile attacks, and that it was Takizawa who arranged the evacuations, making him a hero. He then discovers something shocking and rushes outside to warn Takizawa only to be run down by Mononobe, who destroys Kondō's phone before calling Takizawa. Back in Tokyo, Team Eden meets Ohsugi at Takizawa's theater, where they discover the area where the 20,000 NEETs were held and writing on the wall declaring, "I will destroy you, Takizawa Akira!"
