Twenty-five years ago, the world was annihilated. With the coming of the Overfiend, God of all Gods, the human, demon, and beast realms collapsed together in chaos. With the promise that he would be born in 100 years to re-create his failed world, the Overfiend settled back to sleep within his mother's womb.
But something has gone terribly wrong...
Now the Overfiend is born prematurely and awaits the coming of his natural the enemy, the Lord of Chaos. His only hope for survival are Amano Jyaku and his sister Megumi. But destiny has moved in ways that even the Overfiend could never predict, as a new race of half-breed demon beasts has evolved.
As Amano travels to the kingdom of Azuma to investigate the appearance of the Lord of Chaos, he is swept up in the world-conquering schemes of Caesar, Azuma's dictator.
Against the backdrop of a demon beast slave revolt and the return of the diabolical Munhihausen, only Amano and the demon beast Buju can save the world from another fiery destruction. With the fate of the earth and its inhabitants hanging in the balance, all wait to see what the coming of the Lord of Chaos will bring...
The Urotsukidouji films are a little bit strange. Many of the core events in these movies are caused by really stupid bullshit, and character motivations tend to be varying degrees of all over the place, not to mention how they all feature some of the most hilariously bad english dubs i've ever seen. However, the darkness sometimes becomes so weird and twisted that one can't help but be enthralled, to the point that a few of the attempted emotional moments aren't as hard to take seriously as one might think at first.
Very schlocky, but also lovable. The animation is violent, disgusting,
and really cool if you like that sort of thing.
This installment is no different, except for a few more glaring hiccups along the way than the first two had.
For example, one of the main characters starts out as a raping, pillaging asshole, but is transformed into a caring father figure in the space of about two seconds by the eyes of a child. It made a little bit of sense within context, but was so painfully melodramatic that I couldn't forgive it.
The main villain does the same thing with his daughter, except he turns back into a rapist two times (one of those times raping HIS OWN DAUGHTER(!!!)) and still gets plenty of stupid redemption scenes.
Also, this may just be the opinion of someone who's been spoiled by the hentai of this generation, but I don't think I would be breaking my VHS to rewind these sex scenes if I owned this in the 90's, so don't get your hopes up for anything special in that department unless you're into the fucked up subject matter or you like inuyasha porn or whatever.
If you like gory 90's anime, really bad dubs, and weird shit, you should check this series out.
And if you're a fan of the first two movies, you'll definitely like this one, just be prepared for a little more cheese.
