Hoichiro Ohma works in an office. Everybody knows him as a silent, humble man. Even his girlfriend, Nanase, doesn't suspect that he could be something more, but he is. When a person dies as a victim of murder; when someone kills himself with a curse on his lips; when someone's death needs to be judged, he is there, for he is a Judge Of Darkness. Following the Laws Of Darkness, with a book made of human skin and an unusual parrot, he pronounces judgement over living criminals that would otherwise go free.

It's now the month of October, so I thought I would review a spooky horror anime! Then I realized just how few good horror anime actually exist. At least there are a decent number of God awful horror OVAs from the 1990s, so here's Judge!

The manga is from the 1980s and is written by the same dude who created the far superior Gallery Fake. That manga/anime about art forgery that you've probably heard of but haven't seen because almost nobody has. The anime is a single episode, 40 minute OVA from 1991 that was animated by JC Staff. This was a few years before JC read more

The concept of this story isn't that bad. They could have done more with it. Action is a bit lacking and it's rather generic at best. It's short (thank god), but still has low rewatchability as there isn't much there to make you want to rewatch it. Animation is typical of it's age. Characters are easy to forget and anime as a whole is worth watching if you seen most of them and are experimenting with OVAs or something. Easy to find cheap on dvd if desired, but there's much better anime to spend your money on.

Yami no Shihosha Judge isn't a known anime for a reason. The concept of the story is rather interesting but it doesn't work well as a horror.

The main character resembles Clark Kent. He is a nerdy and kind guy at work but when no one is looking he turns into a super hero whose goal is to bring justice upon vilains (by killing tchem ofc). We don't get to know why is he that way, who exactly is he and what is his story. He definetly isn't a "generic good guy" but unfortunately he isn't memorable either.

When it comes to the art & music read more

Judgement has always been known to occur. From how we were raised to the religion we fall under. Although, the exact rules of death are unclear. Seeing, how you must be dead to be aware. With no accurate documentation of witness reflections we can only guess how it will play. In comes this movie to fill the blanks to from what we already know to be true.

-plot is believable. Plot left me with no raise questions. whom am i to say mediums exist or not? Or the dead can speak or not. Such questions most do not have answers for. Plot read more
