Tokyo: 1912. The imperial government begins to put in motion its plan to industrialize the capital so that it may take its place among the great cities of the modern world. The evil sorcerer Kato (who bears more than a passing resemblance to Street Fighter II's M Bison) would rather see Tokyo in ruins, and plans to resurrect the spirit of the warrior Taro Masakado to destroy the city. To do this he must possess the soul of a young girl with untapped supernatural powers, Yukari Tatsumiya. Various spiritual guardians try and fail to protect Yukari from his demonic powers, only for Kato's plan to be thwarted by the benign Masakado himself. Kato bides his time until he can use Yukari's daughter Yukiko to carry out the destruction on his own, but a new warrior appears to protect the Tatsumiya household: Keiko, an unassuming shrine maiden who wields the power of Heaven itself.
...*Sigh*... This is one of the strangest and most hard to watch anime's I have ever encountered. Where do I start? The plot is stale and sometimes non-exsistant and I mean they actually tried to cover the fact that they threw in useless filler into a Four Episode anime. The characters also are either stale or just plain evil, the brother is a fine example of this (no spoilers). The animation is ok for the time I guess but it's not always about how it look's. If you dare want to watch this and see a woman giving birth to what look's like a huge penis...slug...thing, then give this a watch. It's short. It's weird. It's Doomed Megalopolis!
Permit me to commence by stating that, on this occasion, the summary provided on this site is, in fact, accurate in its depiction of the plot. Having said that, it must be noted that the overall viewing experience is far from enjoyable or captivating. The characters lack any semblance of likability, and the progression of the narrative is tediously slow. While the animation is of a decent quality, particularly with regards to special effects and fight scenes, and the character design is aesthetically pleasing, it is ultimately insufficient to salvage the overall lack of engagement. In summary, it is my sincere belief that this anime is not worth the investment of time and attention. I would not recommend it to any individual seeking entertainment or fulfillment.
