Tokio is a modern male parallel to Pabsts Lulu. He's hairdresser who looks after his beautiful officer worker sister. He sleeps around with anyone and everyone, breaking hearts all over the show. Japanese people just cant hug properly can they? It's not their thing. This part is quite funny in some scenes. Okay, so Tokio is this absolutely perfect looking, young Japanese guy. His dress sense is a little cool but he could've cooled it with the pink shirts all the time. He treats the people he sleeps with as if he doesn't have a heart. His sister spends some time away with a friend. The friend, a woman, is in love with his sister. A kiss on the head is about as far as this film goes for those of you's wanting some lesbo camp scenes. When the sister returns home, the siblings begin an incestuous relationship.
In a nicely shot street scene Tokio gets sliced down the left side of his face with a razor by an unknown woman who disappears into the crowds. He lies in the street for a while passed out. Goes to hospital. All the while he is still madly in love with his sister.
When he comes home, he is depressed (which is actually not much different for him throughout the entire film -he's so laid back and moochy and doesn't smile a lot). Suddenly when he passes beautiful women on the street they push past him barely noticing him. It's great. 'The now ineffective seductress'. Animusu anima is boring from beginning to end.
