SynopsisSince the beginning of time, monstrous Demons and noble Guardians have battled for Earth - the everlasting gift of the one great Mother, creator of all life. A deep hatred burns between Demon and Guardian; the Guardians prevented the Demons from destroying humanity and the world itself.
Eons later, Neo-Shinjuku City: few Demons or Guardians remain to continue their epic war. Humans rule the Earth, with no real memory of either Demons or Guardians. Yet deep within the dark underworld of the city, one supreme Demon is alive and plotting to subjugate mankind. Only one Guardian is left to do battle, and the fate of the human race is at stake.
Based on the Graphic Novel
"Twilight of the Dark Master (Shihaisha no Tasogare)" (Shinshokan) by Saki Okuse

As humans go through their daily lifes they are left unaware of the battle that is being waged between good and evil.It is a battle that has existed from the beginning of time,a battle between demons and the guardians of mankind.Tsunami Shijo a fire manipulator and the last of the guardians one day meet a woman seeking to find a demon who she wishes to kill,Tsunami later finds out that this demon once had a close relationship with the woman and investigates to find it.
Tsunami search leads him to a conspiracy in which drugs is being used on human test subjects and behind it all is an old enemy,the worst demon of them all.Tsunami must once again stop his old enemy before he destroys all mankind.Firstly may i just say that the animation is great,.It is absolutely gorgeous.Im a sucker for these 90's animation drawing,the colour looks real and vivid,everything is in great detail with a realism that far surpasses most of the computer generated animation that we get today.Whether it is the building,facial features,blood,spit or trees the animation is just awesome.The sounds effects is also top notch, with the pitch of every scream or explosion being of very high quality.
This is a fourty-five minute movie and will properly garner criticism for being so short but thats what i loved about this movie,the fact that so much was condensed in so little.An anime like this definately deserved some more air time but still was entertaining even if it was short. read more
Both of an older animation style and demons-related plot, they have a similar dark, mysterious feeling to them; both with a big potential to make full-lenght series. Also, Tsunami somehow reminds Count D, the more so because they have the same seiyuu.
Another short OVA that is similiar style in animation. Not much character development in either. Both seem like a segment of a larger B movie.
