Editorial Reviews

The latest anime from the genius manga artist Go Nagai!
Hardcore Japanese horror arrives in the USA!

Enma is the Demon Prince of the Underworld, a demon "Born of Fire." His mission is to take back or destroy demons that have escaped to the human world from the Underworld. Along with his partner, Princess Yukihime, "Born of Ice," and the monster, Kapaeru, Enma set up "Enma's Detective Agency." Tonight, like any other night, they will roam the sleepless city. Horrific incidents that could not possibly be human acts occur one after another. The stench of evil lingers at the scene... Enma's fire rips through the darkness!

Demon Prince Enma is based on an old 1970's children's manga by Go Nagai named "Satanikus" which followed the adventures of a demon child named Enma and his pals as they tracked down evil demons. The manga also spawned a much beloved anime version, which, while being targeted at kids, had its moments of adult humor. Demon Prince Enma takes the plot of the old series and matures it quite a bit. Enma is now a young man/demon who is a bit of a lecher. While his mind constantly runs in the gutter, his real purpose in being on our plane is to round up or kill demons that have escaped from the Underworld. He doesn't handle this job alone. The beautiful ice demon princess Yukihime is his partner and she uses her power to form and control ice to back up Enma's fire-wielding abilities. There's also an odd looking toad spirit that helps them out with intelligence gathering on unusual happenings in the city that might indicate a demon is involved. To blend in more with humanity, Enma and the others tout themselves as a paranormal detective agency, even though Kapaeru is a bipedal talking toad/turtle monster! He fools humans into thinking he's wearing a mascot costume for his part-time job at the "Cutie College", a hostess club for lonely Japanese men. In the first episode, Enma and Yukihime have to find out the connection between a missing girl and a recent string of serial murders in which a vampire is being blamed for the deeds. Then they go up against a murderous living doll right of the Twilight Zone.

As far as I know, the kid's anime Demon Prince Enma was based on has never been released in the US, so I came to this first volume knowing nothing about the previous series. It was only after I watched it that I did a little research.

If you have never watched a dark anime (or read a dark manga) by Nagai Go, you're in for a treat.

Nagai was the first anime creator that I've met and I literally have his autographed artwork in my office because I'm such a fan of his work.

He has created so many manga titles and anime based on those titles which people are familiar with. Titles such as "Cutey Honey", "Mazinger Z", "Devilman", "Getter Robo" and the list goes on. The man is truly a legend.

One of his earlier manga titles "Dororon Enma" was created back in 1973 and even spawned an anime series featuring a child demon prince named Enma (born of fire) and his partners Princess Yukihime (born of ice) and a monster named kapaeru as they take back or destroy demons that have escaped to the human world.

Granted, the anime was targeted more towards children back in 1973 but here we are 35 years later with the first volume of the "Kikoushi Enma" four-part OAV series aka Demon Prince ENMA from Bandai Visual/Honneamise.

This time around, the demon prince and his partners are grown up and make their return to the human world.

Enma is more or less a demon prince who really could care less about human life. All he wants to do is bring back or destroy the demons that have escaped to the human world. He's quite brash, insensitive and also quite perverted.

His partner Princess Yukihime is a bit more caring towards human life but has short fuse when Enma gets into his lecherous ways. She is fond of Enma, has trouble discussing her feelings but is very calm and collected.

Please note that I can't post anything if I don't fill in a rating and decided to simply fill all in. It does not mean that I've seen or bought this DVD and should be ignored.

I've not bought this DVD because of the insane cost for so little and so I'm not leaving this as a review of the DVD. The only reason this should be posted is in response to the first reviewer's take on a show he (or she) has not even bought. Reviews are made to critique product viewed, though I read many that have commented on the theatrical release outside of the DVD soon to be sold. This reviewer's take hinted by the first paragraph insinuates that this show was either illegally watched online or rented.

How this person can be noted as one of the "top 1,000 reviewers" on Amazon even further makes me leery about the entire rating and reviewing part on this site.

No reviewer comment from people who have not bought the product should be a mandate for this company. The review did do research on the history of the product, but again did not purchase the product. The last paragraph mentions that fact clearly. Why did you allow this to happen?

overpriced
Bandai Visual's marketing scheme has been said time and again to be one where they liscense shows faster than normal and give R1 Fans shows "just like the Japanese DVD release" because they think it's what we want. This means a max of 2 episodes a disc, no dub and a much higher price... Read More
