After years of waiting, 3x3 Eyes arrives on DVD. This has to be one of my favorite animes of all time. Based off Yuzo Takada's long running popular manga series 3x3 Eyes (Sazan Aizu) published in 1987. If you liked Yuzo Takada's other work such as Blue Seed and All Purpose Cultural Cat Girl Nuku Nuku, you'll like this one!
3x3 Eyes revolves around a girl named Pai. She belongs to an ancient race of three eyed demons called the Sajiyan-Unkara. They possessed the power of immortality. Pai is the last survivor of the Sajiyan-Unkara. She wishes to become human. But in order to become human, she must find the Staute of Humanity. With the archeologist, Professor Fuji's dying words, he tells her to travel to Japan to get help from his son Yakumo Fuji. This is where it begins.
Basically, she meets Yakumo in a very akward way. Then he gets killed saving Pai from her own pet demon, Takui. Pai uses her Sanjiyan powers to turn him immortal. He wakes up wondering why he's still alive. After realizing what happened, Yakumo embarks on a long journey in search for the Staute of Humanity, which takes them to Hong Kong. Yakumo is forced to look for a way to make Pai mortal so he can get his old life back, so that he too can also become mortal again. But he must abandon his old life for anew.
This is a very good anime. It gets better and better by the episode. The thing that makes 3x3 Eyes so great is that is has a little of everything from, drama, action, adventure, comedy, and horror. Not only is the story good, the music is too. Kaoru Wada does a great job with composing the musical score.
So if you want a bit of every genre, give 3x3 Eyes out. You won't be disappointed. Once you've done that, check out the Manga.
