The film deals with a human and a female demon having to escort an old man to sign a peace agreement between humans and demons and the film becomes repetitive following the pattern; Of the old pervert is captured violate the girlfriend of the protagonist and he kills the enemies only to return to the same patron, the action is not so good because although it is well animated the darkness in severa... read more

Description: For centuries, a secret peace treaty has existed between Earth and The Black World, a parallel dimension populated by shape-changers possessing awesome supernatural powers.

The fate of the world now rests in the ability of a pair of special agents, one a human, the other a shape-changer from the distaff dimension, to make sure things go according to plan.

"12.2. Wicked City is one of those style of substance kind of films. This time it's all about corny erotic horror fantasy with some awesome anime action. The plot makes no sense, but the main idea is so good, it's makes the whole film. It's all about badass agents hunting demons in futuristic city and having sex and blowing some grotesque shit up. It's kinda like Blade Runner mixed with The Thing I can clearly see how this film has inspired many other action and horror fantasy franchises and c"

" Date: 9/29/2020 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-Watch Note: My Discotek Blu-Ray came in the mail today from Amazon and I have waited so long for an HD remaster of this movie. The movie looks breathtaking in HD and I never get tired of this movie. I have seen this movie so many times, it's still one of my favorite animated movies. I can understand why some people don't like this movie because it can be gross and violent. However, I don't think it is the most shocking and gross thing ever like some people "

" Date: 10/26/2019 Viewed: DVD (Discotek) Re-Watch Note: Wicked City is still one of my favorite anime movies in my opinion. It mixes body horror, romance, and sci-fi into one awesome movie. The characters are awesome and memorable in my opinion. I also love the story and the idea of two worlds trying to bring peace with each other. Also, the animation and atmosphere is fantastic as well. This is an animated movie that both David Cronenberg and John Carpenter would enjoy. I don't think this "

“The film deals with a human and a female demon having to escort an old man to sign a peace agreement between humans and demons and the film becomes repetitive following the pattern; Of the old pervert is captured violate the girlfriend of the protagonist and he kills the enemies only to return to the same patron, the action is not so good because although it is well animated the darkness in several scenes damages it, at the end of the movie they discover Stupidly that they actually escorted his protector and peace was a son between the protagonist and his partner, which makes no sense for many reasons such as why the old man did not help them before? And why did they always come looking for the old man? Is conclusion is another overrated movie anime that is cult.” read more
