Solid action drama with a supernatural twist
16 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Set ten years after a financial meltdown the rich are getting richer than ever and the poor aren't bothered about. The rich and powerful of Japan are all members of a secret club… a club whose greatest secret is about to be taken by photographer Tatsumi Saiga. That secret is a girl called Kagura who has a strange power… she can give people the power they desire… even if they don't know they want it! After encountering her while infiltrating a club meeting Saiga discovers that his camera has become a weapon; anything he photographs is destroyed! In the confusion he creates he manages to escape with Kagura but it isn't long before Choji Suitengu, the man who runs the club, and his assorted henchmen are trying to get her back… and they have powers that are at least as dangerous as Saiga's. As they struggle to remain safe they learn that few people can be trusted and that the country itself could be in danger from Suitengu's actions.

I only bought this series because it was heavily discounted but I'm glad I did as the story was gripping and the characters interesting. The idea of having characters with various powers has of course been done before but here it seemed different as with the exception of Saiga everybody who has the powers is clearly corrupted in some way. Despite this the villain of the story isn't totally unsympathetic due to his backstory which is explained in one episode. As well as a good group of central characters there are several entertaining secondary ones; both good guys and bad. The levels of violence and sexual content means it isn't really suitable for younger viewers but older teens and upwards should enjoy it.

These comments are based on watching the series in Japanese with English subtitles.
