Quotes

Narrator: Mankind, you are an ignorant race. How foolish it is to believe your kind rules the Earth. Know now that your are not alone, there are unseen worlds that exist parallel to yours. These are the worlds of the Makai, a race of demons. And the Jujinkai, those that are half-man and half-beast. There is an ancient legend, a prophecy fortelling the appearance of a super being every three thousand years. He is called the Chojin! A god above all gods, the Overfiend!

YOU CANNOT LOOK AWAY
30 May 2003 | by (setagaya tokyo japan) – See all my reviews

Possibly the most important Japanese gothic sci-fi tentacle sex horror metamorphosis allegory of our time, Urotsukidouji is poignant love tragedy wrapped in a shroud of horrific telescoping genitals and pink, luminescent semen. This movie is a large part of the reason anime has a negative reputation as porn.

Follow Nagumo as he falls in love, gets killed, comes back to life as a super sex demon and lives happily ever after. His cute, innocent love story with the character Akemi is a grand contrast to his propencity for non-consentual sex with just about everybody he meets. He truly is Everyman. I mean, uh...isn't he?

There is also an incomprehenisble plot about demons and half-humans and the repeated destruction of Osaka, Japan. But you'll have a hard time concentrating on the plot's intricacies, what with all the raping and the killing and the kicking and the hurting.

Part II is also good (maybe better than part I), then the series dissolves into post- apocalyptic gobblediguck. But if you have an insatiable appetite for monster porn, you better watch them all.
