Years ago, a great unholy rift opened in the center of Tokyo, turning Shinjuku into a demon-infested slum. At that time, a great warrior fought their leader, but was defeated. Now, the unholy forces reach out, targeting the one man who can bring peace to the war-torn world... a young boy must now do what his father could not--defeat the evil that lives inside Demon City Shinjuku!

Despite some superficial opinions, this is actually a pretty good movie. It tells a simple (which is not a crime) yet interesting and immersive story in a very well directed, deliberate way.

The animation and art style are superb.

Overall any fan of an oldschool anime... read more
