Unsold TV pilot and a dark, violent and gory sword and sorcery spoof set in a postapocalyptic new dark age about a Conan-like barbarian warrior hired to steal a golden goblin from a dangerous wizard who lives in a tower in the sky.
A professor of folklore opens a forbidden scroll and becomes possessed by the ancient Japanese demons of Thunder and Lightning, who seek to return and dominate our world. The Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense sends Hellboy and a team of agents to investigate, but when Hellboy picks up a samurai sword, he literally disappears into a weird wonderland of Japanese legends, ghosts and monsters. Meanwhile, BPRD agents Kate Corrigan and Russell Thorne are on the trail of the possessed professor to bring Hellboy back.Written by

Do you feel them? Our brothers are calling.
Then we should wake them and bring an end to this puny world of men.

Not a fan of this animation style, the proportions between the character were way off from the movie and the voice acting was terrible. It was a nice touch to use some of the same voice actors from the films, but when the actors don't give a great performance in live action what makes them think there voice work will be better. I really wanted to like this animated movie because I had heard it was closer to the comic books (which I have never read) and I have felt the movie was missing a little something and maybe that was it's distance from the comic books. But if this is really a better representation of the comic books then I'll just stick to the live action movies.
