In the year 2050 AD, Humans live in a world filled with science and electronics, but the "Demon Capital" Shanghai has never been rid of demons. Fortunately, the supernatural Demon Taoists Corporation is here to ensure that neither vampires, demigods, or even trans-cultural literary icons trouble the least, for too long.

Shanghai Youma Kikai is one of Hiromu Arakawa's first works, a 4-part comedy action 'one-shot' and an attempt at a dark yet humorous tone that carries over to her popular Hagane no Renkinjutsushi. Being as such, fans will recognize early character designs. (Source: MU)

The series received two drama CD adaptations; the first was released on March 24, 2006 and the second on April 4, 2007.

Some of you will have noticed that some of my recent reviews have focused on the work Arakawa Hiromu, the creator of Full Metal Alchemist and Jyuushin Enbu: Hero Tales. Aside from those two series, she has produced several successful one-shots as well. Shanghai Yomakikai (Demons of Shanghai), is the manga that built on the success of her debut work, Stray Dog and, while it's only a short series (4 chapters), it showcases her creative mind at work in a way that Stray Dog never could, and effectively paved the way for the creation of Full Metal Alchemist and her later works.
