An under-rated anime
11 June 2002 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Curse of the Yoma is an excellant anime, and deserves more recognition than it's given. The animation is very nicely done, and the quality of the artwork on each individual frame stays consistantly pleasant for the duration. Also, the "Yoma Counting Song" is one of the loveliest, and most haunting, pieces of music I've encountered in a movie, animated or non. It seems there was more story to be told than could be fit into the short (two segment) run, nevertheless, I feel that through a good use of imagery and psuedo-poetic elements, the story manages to unfold in lucid fashion. The film loses points for what I perceived as being gratuitous action sequences, which are well done, but seem to fill too much of the running time. Also, the ending theme is just plain bad. Still, with its solid production, atmospheric imagery, and thought-provoking theme, Yoma is anime worthy of the 'classic' status.
