Tokyo Akazukin is about an 11-year-old girl who usually just goes by the name of Akazukin (Little Red Riding Hood). She has a sick obsession with a being known only as Mr. Wolf, and wants nothing more than to be eaten by him to end her "immortal" life. Akazukin has lost all of her memories and doesn't even know who she really is. Her reason to want to be eaten by Mr. Wolf is not even known to her, instead it's a desire that is locked deep within her consciousness.

Tokyo Akazukin (Tokyo Red Riding Hood) is, in one word, bizarre. Tamaoka Benkyo has essentially created a gruesome, unique world by colliding Red Riding Hood with Hellsing and adding a dash of Waita Uziga.

I'm thinking to myself: "what would happen if Tokyo Akazukin should be made into a anime?" Well the US would probably ban it for sexual exploit of underage ecchi. But Tokyo Red Hood shouldn't JUST be blamed\credited for that; it also has an healthy dose of gore and visual horror.

Tokyo Akazukin can be described as 'dementedly weird' or 'twisted wonderful'. You really only have to read the first chapter to see if its up to your speed or not. To me it clearly was.

Meet the lusty Red Hood, a small girl who has no memory of her past or who she really is. She's a read more

I do not actually know where to begin with this one, but I will try. I felt that I had to write about this manga after finishing it a moment ago.

Due to reading a rather rough translation, most of the story content was a bit hard to pick up, but the central focus is on the titular Akazukin. A "little girl" who is trying to, well, you know the rest if you already read the synopsis. Along the way, she meets other demons and befriends them as they help her to reach her goal of being devoured by Mr. Wolf. There are humans that attempt read more
