Written and directed by Hiroaki Ando from an original story by Katsuhito Ishii (Redline), Gambo tells the story of Gambo, a white polar bear who defends a young child from a royal family against a bloodthirsty demon that wants to harvest young women to re-produce more demons by getting them pregnant. Gambo is brutal. No, I'm not kidding. By reading the synopsis, you're probably thinking it's a really dumb story but trust me, it is damn good and ends with the most bloodiest fights in anime films by far. Plus, the art in Gambo looks beautiful and the designs are top notch (the demon, in read more

It's only 11 minutes long so my review will be brief as well. The story takes place a few hundred years before our time, in Japan. I found Gambo very powerful and raw. The action was bloody, but not excessively gore either.

The battle scenes themselves are what you'd expect between a bear and a giant Oni type of monster : claws, bites, punches. No fluffy moves.

I highly recommend this one for those who like straight to the point action.

The art was ok. The character development wasn't something that could be fit in such a short piece, but it was satisfying to read more

seen via japanese audio with english subtitles.

Warning:not for the faint of heart. Reason being involves rape in minor girls(aftermath).

Normally i consider these snuff films garbage but this one i disagree. True it did have an evil tone but i can't help but to wonder in the ancient path if demons roamed the earth. If that was the case i would thank my lucky stars if i had the aid of a monster on my side. Which is why i liked the show. Not only was it a tad unique but despite how bad things are there was hope if you had faith. read more
