Since 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

This is a very atmospheric 1990s anime with monsters, superpowered people, cyberpunk-ish atmosphere. In a sense, it is somewhat similar - in atmosphere - to Wicked City. With less sexual content, however.

The main reason to watch it is 1990s atmosphere - with hand-drawn everything, specific old-style music, and atmosphere of the city which feels vaguely cyberpunk in nature.

There's a shot timeframe for the movie, but it does decent job presenting the storyline, characters, and showing you how the event unfolds. The events are presented in sort of indifferent way, so you sorta get glimpses and hints of what the people there are, read more

Ah, the good old days of renting anime OVA from your local video store, back when you just picked up something because the cover looked appealing, and you were young and didn't care how good or bad it was, as long as it was anime. That's pretty much how I ended up watching Twilight of the Dark Master. I was but a young lass, and for weeks I stared at the front cover of the VHS (the older one with the main characters profile gazing at the grimace of a very discontented looking woman), and just knew that my mom wasn't going to read more

Twilight of the Dark Master is THAT anime of 1998 with an appealing title and description, that is pretty much it. There are a lot of shortcomings of this film that could have gone beyond the shallow antagonizing force, non-existent romantic elements between a human and a demon etc. Vintage anime films are often glorified because apparently every aged anime is a masterpiece, that may be true with series such as Initial D, Cowboy Bebop, Ghibli Films etc. but that's about it. No-name vintage anime films have a reason why they're no-name; it is either because studios have taken risks and invested in poorly read more
