Storyline

When Overfiend is found and born in a human, he will remake the world to something more of his liking!

Tentacles, anyone?
27 June 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Now, this anime is not for people who like anime such as Sailor Moon, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, and other harmless films/series. As it states on the cover, this anime is "absolutely not for children". The first time I saw Urotsukidoji: Legend Of The Overfiend I was not prepared to see the mix of tentacles and schoolgirls. I was pretty shocked, and turned it off after the opening sequence. But curiosity lured me back, and I watched the film after figuring, 'hell, it's only a cartoon'. What I saw was like no other anime I had seen before. OK, there's plenty of tentacles to be seen in this film, but plot-wise it's a pretty good horror anime (with lots of nudity and sexual situations). This anime is well worth a watch to the more mature anime viewer.
