    I'm up for that. What do you'all say Paff and co.? Also, how 'bout doing reviews on other horror / anime series so fans of horror can check out other anime series?

    Well, if there's any anime on this planet that begs to be reviewed on this site it is Perfect Blue... :)

    Likely perverted adults who have a thing for uber-cuteness... KAWAIII! (Jog's anime roots continue to creep to the surface)

    Also my favorite anime of all time!

    Speaking of mind-f**ks... it's not an action anime, probably closer to Jin-Roh or Ghost in the Shell, with LOTS of philosophical musing and beautiful animation. Try it... I liked it.

    :) :)

    DAAAAAAAMN RIGHT!!!

    So does anyone know if a definite version of the Urotsukidoji series ever got released (uncut)? ;) I still want to pick up both La Blue Girl box sets, are they uncut as well? :D

    Hey Thrash the most definitive you can get is the Perfect collection plus the Hell on Earth box set. In my opinion though only the episodes in the Perfect Collection are worth seeing.

    since this thread is resurrected, I might as well mention that the brand new Urotsukidoji (think its part 5) is coming out within the summer. you can check it out on the anime18 catalogue at www.anime18.com even tho its just 1 screenshot and a short description.

    thrashhard- if you want 'definative' as in 'uncut' for Urotsukidoji, you're out of luck. Since it was made years back when the nudity laws in japan were still strict, I believe there is no uncensored version availible. But the best version right now if you dont mind the 'fog' is definately the Perfect Collection (its the first few episodes, the best imo)
    as far as I know, the la blue girl boxsets are uncut except for the old series a few scenes involving the ninja 'Nin-nin' are removed. but the new series lablue girl returns is 100% uncut, and really cool. one of toshio's best.
     
  7. Urotsukidoji: Legend of the Overfiend.

    Over-the-top and explicit X-rated Japanese animated horror fantasy shocker that is like a cross between "Heavy Metal", "Akira", "Hellraiser" and even "The Gate". It's about this demon god who arises every 3000 years in the form of a human as it must unite three worlds of humans, demons and man-beasts into one huge world as evil and chaos spread.

    It has lesbianism, bisexuality, graphic gore, explicit animated sex, rape, tentacle naughty doings, exploding heads, mutilation, murder, body rippings, fellatio, and every excess around, definitely not for the faint of heart.

    Gotta make sure you see the "perfect collection" as that is the only uncut version. The Nc-17 dub is missing a half hour or so of footage (plus the perfect collection comes with it's first sequel). Yes, it's mostly sex and violence, but the movie makes less sense without those scenes.

    It's not completely uncut. There is some fogging in some of the episodes.
     
  13. Some of the heavy metal fans here might recognize that as the title of a Testament song.

    The fogging in the episodes after the first part are in all versions. There isn't a completely uncensored version, but it is the most complete and uncut available (all scenes are intact and aren't removed). Add that the fog doesn't really do it's job. Even with the optical blurring, the plot makes more sense.

    Yep, from their Low album.
     
  17. Would anyone compare this to the similar 1981 animated movie "Heavy Metal"? or was that movie mild compared to this?

    urm.. LOL, yeah well this is just horror porn with a actual plot and it's XXX hardcore porn at that.

    The fact that it has a cool plot, animation and characters is the only thing that makes it more than just a porn flick.

    UROTSUKIDOJI -LEGEND OF THE OVERFEIND


    urotsukidoji legend of the overfeind was the ultimate sex horror shocker
    thats a unique blend of sex and mega violence with dazzling special
    effects and according to sources the film was dissmissed in germany
    due to the films heavy content and it was also censored for tv in the
    uk in which five mins was cut from the film and it was attended not aimed
    at children because the parents were concerned of seeing a portrayal of
    highschool teachers having sex with underage teens in a cartoon and deemed it highly unappropiate
    to show children under age 18 but spite criticism the film became a worldwide phenomenon and still generates legions of fans today .
