The rich seeks to satisfy their desires and derive pleasure for themselves, and Tokyo has materialize into such a city as a result. Saiga, once a war photographer, works for Hibara Ginza in the capitalist state of Tokyo.

However, he was caught in the process and brought forward to a girl called Kagura who was in the midst of a ritual. His contact with Kagura awakens his special ability: the power to make things explode once photographed. In order to unravel the mystery behind the Roppongi Club and Kagura, Saiga begins his solitary battle. Written by animenewsnetwork

Speed Grapher
14 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I thought this anime was superb in its own right. I feel this anime captured the essence of the modern or real world today. Which is in the pragmatic sense, capitalism.

Unique and mature subject matter, this anime kept me wanting more. Some avid watchers say it was a bit unrealistic but I beg to differ. I find that this anime captured the realism of secrete cults and organizations today. No I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but things like "Dominatrix" and sadomasochistic perversions exist in this society today.

I feel this anime was trying to exhibit the perversion and deviated nature of human beings through the "club". These above mention perversion or abnormalities have existed within society from the beginning of time, affiliated with the upper class and these things still go on today.

So I found it surprisingly realistic and it pointed out the reality of state of the world is in and those who belong to the socioeconomic status of prestige and privilege, displaying how these "elite" of society squander their money. Overall I would give this anime 8 out of 10.
