Karmic Whimsy
24 November 2005 | by InzyWimzySee all my reviews

This movie is better appreciated if you've seen the beginning. It's not necessary, but the first film focused on the friendship between Hiromasa and Seimei. Here, the two are well acquainted, share a lot of laughs (and sake!), and work well together against ominous forces of darkness.

Seimei is certainly a character himself. Eccentric perhaps, he has an heir about him like he knows what's going to happen, so he hardly loses his cool. Hiromasa, the younger, brave, flute wielder is loyal to Seimei and has this good natured, yet determined outlook which works well in contrast to Seimei. I only wish there was more of Misumishi: she's such a nimble little sprite! There's a dark Grimm fairy tale here, but I was mainly concerned with our protagonists who manage to earn laughs; a credit to its humorous aspect. Princess Himiko was intriguing especially when the story starts to unfold. Add magic, spell casting, and exorcising and you're in for a fun romp.
