Movie Reviews

Like Buffy!

"This has often been compared to Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
I know the first instinct is to say animated "gore" is stupid, but it's pulled of well as in 12 Kingdoms. The first volume episode does have one completely unnecessary scene where Yokho is naked and being seduced by a demon. Not sure why it's even in there! The rest of the series is normal and enjoyable. So, unless you happen to be a perverted young teenage boy or a desperate man, fast forward!!
Yohko is even a magical girl, she's just...rougher, so girls should like this."
You should definately buy this right now!

"Devil hunter Yohko is classic Anime at it's best! This show may be a bit dated, but it still has sexy girls, engaging plots, and great music. This DVD is absolutely exceptional in every way and I strongly recomend it for any anime fan(provided you can deal with the nudity of course)."
I love an anime that has the word devil in it.

"A teenage girl name Yohko doesn't know it yet but, she's #107 in a long and venerable line of demon hunters! But after her school principal sics a monster on her in the swimming pool and she's nearly seduced by a possessed classmate, her granddaughter decides it's time to bring her up in true "Mamono Hunter" style!"

"This was an alright anime. I wouldn't say it's the best one I've seen by any means and I haven't seen that many yet, but I'm working on it. I picked this up because I tend to like a lot of things involving the demonic. I mean, I do collect occult books after all. "Devil Hunter Yohko" seems to start off pretty disjointed to me, but as the series continues the writing gets a lot stronger and a bit more serious. So that progression made it kind of worthwhile by the end.

The story concept is pretty basic. Yohko is a young teenage girl and she comes from a long line of devil hunter's, in fact she is the 108th devil hunter in her family. Since she is sixteen at the time the show is very sexually charged and there's a good amount of female nudity. However, the first episode is definitely the most random of all of them. It's like they weren't really sure what direction to take the series and there's a lot of slapstick kind of humor, the comic relief being provided by her grand mother mostly. It also had a very heavy gothic feel, but that kind of left the series a bit after the first episode. Anyway, she finally comes into her own and becomes a devil hunter, but boys are still heavily on her mind. One of the funniest parts is that whenever she transforms into the devil hunter there's an extended nude scene as her clothes tear off and her costume comes on. It's so weird; it made me think of the old cartoons that always have that flash scene when the heroes call upon their special abilities or whatever just before they fight the enemy.

I wouldn't expect anything too riveting out of this show, it's merely average in my opinion and the whole overall concept isn't hugely original. Hot girl fighting demons? It falls into that whole category of hot girl versus `x', where `x' is any random enemy you can make up. Some of the demons were really cool looking though, especially the one in the fifth episode that had fought all the other devil hunters. That demon had a pretty interesting concept. In some ways I wish there was at least a little more depth, but they don't go too much into the background of the world. Don't get me wrong, they explain every demon they face, but I don't know, some of the explanations just seem thrown together. The ones in episode's five and six were the best though. It's interesting because as the series goes on there was a little less nudity in each episode, then they tried to make up for it all in the sixth.

Honestly I can't say whether this is really worth owning overall. I didn't hate it, but I just don't see myself watching this a bunch of times in the future. If you're really itching to watch some girl kicking the crap out of demons with a bit of comedy thrown in by her family life, then this is definitely something that would appeal to you. Other than that I can't think of much else to tell about this, it didn't totally blow me away."
