3X3 Eyes is the story of a young man named Yakumo Fuuji, who through a strange series of events becomes the immortal slave of the last of a race of 3 Eyed demons. The demon absorbs his soul to save his life, making him immortal in the process. Now, he begins a journey with the female demon in an attempt to find a way of becoming human. Of course, there are many complications along the way, not the least of which being that the demon is a female with a split personality, one achingly cute and the other being no-nonsense destructive power, and the romances that develop between.

3x3 eyes is originally a supernatural manga series of the same name, which spans over 40 volumes, but this OVA made in 1991 gives us a taster of the manga by covering the first two volumes. And they do this quite well, firstly by not falling into the trap of trying to give us a conclusion and neither does it rely on previous knowledge of the manga, which many short running OVAs of long running mangas do. It does exactly what it should do, introduce newcomers to the world of 3x3 eyes and let fans already of the series get an idea of what an read more

3x3 Eyes is a series most older anime fans have heard of, but relatively few have actually seen. The manga is a 40 volume epic that ran from 1987 to 2002. In the United States, Dark Horse adapted the first few volumes of the manga thanks to some generous financing by rock musician Rob Zombie. Thanks Rob! Unfortunately, nobody bought it and Dark Horse soon cancelled. Basically, this was never a very popular franchise in America despite the best efforts of a certain Hellbilly. On the other hand, 3x3 Eyes was a huge hit in Japan and I guarantee you've all seen tropes that this read more

This anime looks old and sounds even older. Although the animation and sound quality both come off as rather dated, the former is still quite pleasant whilst the same cannot be said for the latter. The voice acting is also quite unrefined by today's standards, but the sound track absolutely kicks ass, sporting a range of different tracks from oriental style instrumental pieces to jazzy, upbeat vocal songs.

The contents of "3x3 Eyes" reminds me slightly of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", as it involves a couple of people going around killing weird monsters, but it's more bloody than Buffy. The action scenes are pretty awesome, but read more

3x3 eyes is a hit written by Takada Yuzo. During its time it had a huge impact, getting several video games and a couple OVAs This one from Toei animation. The second from Studio Junio. It would have even had a full tv series but that was prevented by censorship laws, which may be a good illustration to my "censorship is evil" belief but it's been largely forgotten with the passage of time. The question is, why was it so big and does it hold up today?
