Created by Japanese comic artist Toshio Maeda, Urotsukidoji opens up the mystical demonic truth of the darker realms of imagination. Most people in world have beliefs of a peaceful God creating earth in seven days. This god had many names; Budda, Jesus, Guru's, but all are false. The acutal god who created the earth was the eternal Super Man. This being had three dimentions for earth created; the demon world, the beast people world, who delight in violence and sexual pleasures, and ours the human world which conists of flesh and blood. The holy legend of the beast people's world says that every 3000 years, the great one known as the superman, appears through the body of a human male every dawning of 3000 years, in order to unite the 3 worlds. The unification of the 3 worlds will result in a whole world of peace and harmony. One such boy of the beast man world, Amano Jyaku, developed a growning obession of this Legend. He traveled to the human world along with his erotic sister Megumi to look for the most likely candidate. The year is 1989 now, and Amano has being searching for the great one for over 300 years. But now the time has come. The demons and the beast people sense the coming of the Superman--"The Birth." The two world relise that they must act soon. The only problem is that the beast people want to make sure that the birth of the superman comes out as planned, where as the demons know the real results after the superman's birth. With time hanging in the balance, and powerful sinister forces confronting Amano and his sister...what will the final result be?
This,like Akira, was one of the many movies that first opened up Japanese animation to the UK. Urotsukidoji also inspired other companies like Kiseki and AD vision to release other preverted adult anime titles like Adventure Kid (Toshio Maeda) and the Hankkden. The BBFC weren't very friendly with these movies, and had to cut 2 minutes out of the film; the rape scene in the hospital, and the ending between Negumo and Akemi in the locker room. Through the later years of Urotsukidoji, the animators along with the preversed Toshio Maeda, stepped up the sexual inuendo and demonic satire to make the series more darker and atmospheric. When the 5th series was released in 1995, the violence and sex got a little out of hand, and so a western release was without a doupt,-void!
A superb wacky series that has something for everyone whether it be sex, action, drama, horror, or shear animation quality!!!
