Storyline

Kyoya's father was a great warrior, killed at the hands of the diabolical psychic, Rebi Ra, who has now opened a portal to hell in the city of Shinjuku. It falls to Kyoya to finish what his father started and battle his way through demons, while protecting a young woman from harm. The only problem is that he's not exactly your classic hero type, and his powers are still latent. Written by Sinedd

Visually Entertaining
5 March 2004 | by brrrrSee all my reviews

This is really cool looking anime, with a pretty thin plot, as previously mentioned.

If charater development is important, skip this one.

If you like great visuals with lots of action, you will enjoy this.

A simple sushi-western, Clint Eastwood kind of story about a lone warrior saving the girl.

Excellent animation and some very cool fight scenes. If you like a vusially stunning film, but don't mind a thin plot, this is for you.
