Editorial Reviews

From the director of Ninja Scroll!The near future. The glittering skyline of Tokyo now lies broken and crumbling under the weight of an oppressive evil: The tyrannical Rebi Rah. Desperate to rescue her father, who was taken captive by Rah and his monstrous minions, the beautiful Sayaka Rama enlists the help of Kyoya, a streetwise Tokyo teenager. The two must bravely venture into the Demon City, where even the army fears to tread.

Has plenty of blood and gore and a good story as well.

They really don't make them like this anymore, infact in contemporary anime, you rarely see blood ever and the animation is usually made on the cheap.

I would like to tell your Australian customers that this dvd has a different title here, which is "Monster City".

Re-released by Discotek and wow is it worth the upgrade. The video quality is a big improvement, the colors are more vibrant, the print is much cleaner. Also the audio has been remastered too with a Japanese DTS 5.1 track, apparently encoded at 755kpbs, a Japanese 2.0 stero track and of course the fan favourite English dub in 2.0 stero as well.

I defintly like the cover art of this release much since it matches the original Japanese movie posterand cover art. It also shows of the amazing character designs so much more. Dicotek always offer plenty of extras in all their releases, even if they are rare and hard to find. With this we get a 25 minute storyboard, the original Japanese trailer which I've never seen before and the original Japanese credits are at the end of the movie this time as well.

Demon City Shinjuku is a classic, 1988 motion picture. It came out, when horror and extremely violent action flicks like Wicked City, Fist of North Star, Mad Bull 34, Crying Freeman, were staple. Infact if you keep track of Discotek release, they are release almost all the titles I've just mentioned on DVD.

They really don't make them like this anymore, infact in contemporary anime, you rarely see blood ever and the animation is usually made on the cheap. Well, not in the 80's, this boasts the highest production values, Akira esque, high detailed, high budget animation. You see huge shots of detailed skyscrapers, changing color skies, all kinds of crazy, animated special effects. Amongst this you also have a great love story and well fleshed out characters, there's also some fan service as well.

This was one of the first anime movies I was exposed to back in the day when the Sci Fi channel used to air their Saturday night anime line up. It was a pleasure finding it here, it was as good as I remember. Simple story of rescuing a girl and revenge from evil demons, what more do you need?

I enjoyed this a lot more than Ninja Scroll/Akira/Ghost In The Shell.
Unlike other anime -- "Demon City Shinjuku" doesnt have tons of annoying
minor characters or weird subplots. Plenty of violence and humor along with
romance. Definitely well worth your time.
