Storyline

The Persona Century Corporation has purchased nearly every parcel of land on earth. Dissension is not tolerated within the corporation's borders and those who oppose Persona are dealt with swiftly. Of those few places not yet under Persona's control is the free town of Kabuki-cho, also known as "The Dark Side of Tokyo". Within the town, under the leadership of a woman named Mai, is a small resistance group called Messiah. Into this world steps a man who takes the sobriquet of Kabuki-cho: Darkside. Sealed up in another dimension eighteen years ago by Persona Century, Darkside now returns to aid Messiah using his unique mystic power of renewal. Written by Anonymous

If you liked Demon City Shinjuku, BioHunter, and Wicked City...you won't like this.
10 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Oh my God.

What a pile of unexplained crap.

This movie is one of those where I'm sure the creator knows the secrets and meanings behind everything...and he think he can get away with leaving the unexplained to people and that maintaining their interest...but he's wrong.

Darkside Blues begins in a state of confusion and while you expect an answer, it ends in exactly the same point.

It's like watching the middle of a movie. You get the meat...but you never know how it started or what ends up happening.

Maybe the MANGA is better. I'd try that.

Avoid this movie. It is a waste and just utterly useless.
