The world has been divided into two halves by a giant wall to prevent the epidemic of "Dark mist". In order to shelter the refugees, artificial cities called "Arks" were built. Shido Enishi is a private detective, who works at the ninth Ark. One day, he is asked to capture a burglar. The seemingly simple case leads him to a great conspiracy.

This thing is a big shit, seriously, you do not tell someone a story, characters are introduced, Etc in 11 MINUTES (considering that the opening theme uses few minutes) The main character is broken, has a B-plot armor Gary Stu she has no defined personality, the other characters are not interesting and the rest of the ova only shows blood, bullets, asses, boobs, monsters, and ninjutsu.

The plot is nothing we have not seen, humanity in a post-apocalyptic environment.

Hoods Entertainment wanted to vary, the series that take tits and ass every 2 or 3 months, but pulled this horrible thing

History: (4/10)

I actually really like how it gave you a rough idea what the actual story is about. It unfortunate it isn't longer, I would have watched it. I think the fighting is nicely drawn. It is really hard to tell what type of story something will be about in such a short amount of time but I think the handled it very well.
I would really give this an 8.5 if I could because I do wish they would have made it flow a bit better. All in all a good 11 minute OVA.

All i have to say is that this OVA is basically a trailer for the real OVA coming out, but there is no real OVA coming out hahaha. There is no story. All you get is violence with no explanations. The story is beyond mediocre and the art is a little above decent. But if you're a brainless puppet and you enjoy senseless ninjustu hand motions, this is totally for you.

This was too fast paced. for 11 minutes all the main character did was use his hands to fight demons - like if he had hand sanitiser he needed to evaporate lol
