Storyline

Kimika Yoshino returns in this prequel to 'Wizard of Darkness' to play Misa Kuroi before she was famous, or at least before she realized she was a witch. 'Birth of the Wizard' begins in Meiji-era Japan, in a village of former witches and wizards. I say former, because someone seems to have slaughtered them. Skip to the present day, and an archaeologist discovers a mummy from the village. Blissfully unaware that the mummy is, in fact, possessed by an evil spirit (naturally), he runs off, leaving his assistant alone. The mummy comes to life, kills her, and the evil spirit takes over her body. This evil spirit is now searching for Misa, who is protected by a survivor from the original massacre, known only as Saiga It is Misa's destiny to defeat this evil spirit, but she needs Saiga's help to do it.

More feeling, more mystery
2 February 2007 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

Kimika Yoshino plays Misa Kuroi again in this prequel telling us how Misa became a witch. Flashbacks even show her as a child. Saiga (Wataru Shihodo) was appointed to become her protector, and he also teaches her the first lessons in magic. "Eko Eko Azarak 2: Birth of the Wizard" gives more space for mystery than "Eko Eko Azarak 1: Wizard of Darkness" did. It also focuses its attention on characters and story somewhat better. No other part of this horror series has more warmth and feeling. The best example is in the scene when Saiga is wounded and Misa discovers she has the powers to heal, as she repeats the words of the magic spell after him. Only the situation of being stalked and locked in by evil forces is a bit repetitive. Voted 7/8/5/6 for part 1-4.
