Storyline

In the near future, the demons prepare for a new assault on earth, which is protected by the guardians, a struggle that has gone on for eons. The dark masters have found ways to release the demon inside humans, and the first victim is Eiji, just at the moment he becomes engaged. He's hidden away in a brothel while the chief demon, Takamiya, assisted by an incestuous brother and sister, Huang and Chen, perfects the process. The earth's guardian, Tsunami, teams with Eiji's fiancée to set up a final confrontation. The earth's fate hangs in the balance. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Great animation, but...
10 March 2002 | by (Tel Aviv, Israel) – See all my reviews

I fell for one of the oldest, meanest tricks in the book when i ran into this title at the video store - the DVD cover is simply beautiful, and the movie summary makes the movie sounds reasonably interesting. But unfortunately, the cover seems to be one of the few good things about the movie.

While the animation and the soundtrack were great, and plot had a lot of potential, it seems that the creators of this movie didn't really bother to develop the story into the great movie that it could have been. The story is somewhat scrambled, the characters are developed badly (if at all), with the bulk of information about the main character being provided somewhere in the final battle. That is - somewhere in the last 7 minutes of this (short) movie.

In short - if you feel a burning urge to watch anime, and this is the last title on the shelf at the video store, I'd still recommend that you think twice before renting this. And if you do rent it, do yourself a favor and watch the Japanese dub, at least this way you'll get to experience the cool soundtrack in its full glory.
