Storyline

A teenage assassin is cleaning up the streets of Tokyo. The police call her the Angel of Death, an unfeeling assassin who eliminates targets with grace and precision, leaving only a flurry of feathers across the bloody crime scene as a calling card. What the public is unaware of is that this notorious hitman is actually a polite young lady named Monaka. Could the placid face of an innocent high school girl really disguise such a ruthless killer? Monaka seems to be just an average high school girl. But she has a dark and terrible secret linking her past to a murderous police detective and her future to a fatal duel with the one person she loves most in the world. Written by Anonymous

Huh...
12 February 2009 | by (IN) – See all my reviews

Well, this is pretty much identical to the original Kite and Merzzo Forte; violence, some great animation, perverted comedy, and an extremely dark tone. It's nice to see that the unneeded graphic sex was given up in favor of an actual plot (!) with somewhat fleshed-out characters, for once. The plot itself is pretty cliché and nothing we haven't seen a thousand times before, but I have to give them credit for trying.

It's too bad, though, that despite all the style and some violence and an overall entertaining time, the whole thing just doesn't add up to... well... anything. It just kind of falls apart and ends. Extremely lazy and stupid and pointless ending will probably annoy almost every potential fan of this film.

...I'd rate this somewhere above Kite and Mezzo Forte, but it's still not that great.
