Dark enough to be good

"The second volume of the Devil Lady series (aka. Devilman Lady) picks up where "The Awakening" left off. Jun Fudou continues to grapple with her feelings about the sudden awakening of her "beast gene". As a reflection of this, the DVD feels less focused than the first. While Jun's actions in the first DVD seemed to make her stronger, now she falters, displaying much more weakness than we have seen so far.
The series is beautifully directed and dark in both content and atmosphere. It is reminiscent of a suspenseful Hitchcock film. The orchestral score is very well done and the gothic choir music opening really sets the mood. The box artwork is very stylish and the clean opening/ending, and bonus cards are a nice extra. The 90's animation looks slightly dated now (think Gunsmith Cats), but the presentation more than makes up for it.Anyone who doesn't like horror/suspense, or are turned-off by implied lesbianism should take caution. For fans of the genre, or just the curious, there is a lot to like here. 4 stars."
