Release Info

Released in 1988. Produced by Madhouse and Video Art. Animation by Madhouse.

Plot Summary

Kyoya's father was a great warrior, killed at the hands of the diabolical psychic, Rebi Ra, who has now opened a portal to hell in the city of Shinjuku. It falls to Kyoya to finish what his father started and battle his way through demons while protecting a young woman from harm. The only problem is that he's not exactly your classic hero type, and his powers are still latent.

My Thoughts

You have a badass swordsman beating up wicked monsters with a wooden bokken. I love it when enemies look so bizarre and have crazy superpowers. There isn't much character development; this movie is all about kicking ass. It even adds variety to the pace by having some of the supporting characters doing some of their battles. This is such a great action classic. I highly recommend it.
