It's also most of what "Tokko" is made up with, along with a generous amount of totally gratuitous cleavage. It's fairly funny, very violent, pretty well-written and its solidly suspenseful storyline is only marred by an ending that... isn't. Almost is, but isn't.
Five years ago, a hole appeared in front of a Machida apartment complex. Savage demonic creatures emerged and slaughtered almost everyone in the building.
Ranmaru Shindo is on his first day's duty as a cop, when his team is attacked by zombies controlled by demon larvae. They're only saved by the intervention of sword-wielding cops from the mysterious division, TOKKO. One of them is a childhood friend of Ranmaru's, Sakura, who has been haunting his dreams recently.
He becomes convinced that the zombies and TOKKO are connected to the Machida massacre... and the strange tattoo that's appeared on his arm. Of course, he's right -- turns out demons are flooding into our world courtesy of a shattered alchemist's box. But thanks to demon symbiotes -- like the one on Ranmaru's arm -- TOKKO is able to fight and kill them.
So naturally Ranmaru is transferred into TOKKO, and he turns out to be stronger and more skilled than anyone suspected. But his investigations into the alchemist box and the Machida massacre become more dangerous when a sinister old man becomes involved -- and Ranmaru faces losing more than his soul.
The first half of "Tokko" is a sort of detective story wrapped in supernatural trappings, but the second half is when things really heat up. Basically, the whole world will be devoured by demons unless our heroes stop them... except they have demons in their own bodies. What a mess.Read more ›

Tokko takes viewers into the world of Shindou Ranmaru, a newly minted investigator from the Police Academy with a disturbing fantasy world. If it's not his prancing in her lingerie sister, the half naked dream girl, or the wave of mass murders that invades his dream life, he is one mal adjusted cop. As a young man, his family and an entire apartment complex was murdered in Machida, leaving one other witness. Haunting his dreams, the half-naked girl (Rokujo Sakura) turns up at head quarters as part of Tokko, the secret division of Tokki. Unlike regular cops, their weapons are swords with no mercy. Transferring his dream life to reality, he forges a friendship with her and begins to understand the forces that terminated thousands of people in Machida.
Tokko focuses on the appearance of mysterious bottomless holes that lead to murders and `possessions' that turn the victims into zombies that threated the whole city. That's where Tokko comes in. Their function is to battle the invaders from beneath, no matter what the cost.
I must say, Tokko is a fascinating look at the life of Shindou and the forces that pursue him during his life. `Awakening' is a first class episode that draws you into the next, and the next, and so on. Packed with adventure, interesting characters from the slacker rookies, the beautiful Rokujo Sakura, the explosive head of division one, Kurkida, his volupterous sister, and the Elite division, the Tokki. It is addicting, with 22 minute segments designed to run into one another as one continious production. Perhaps that is next.
Tokko is classy, from art to script. It has the mysterious, `buy me, watch me' factor that so many productions lack. Congratulations Manga.com, you have a winner.
Look for Tokko at your local video dealer, comic book store, or online at [...]
The only complaint is that I don't know if their going to make any more series. I heard talk that the producers are trying to convince the creator of the series to write again but she(I think its a she?)is currently working on new projects.There's so much more to the story that was left unanswered then answered which we all know happens a lot in anime but I don't think its right to leave fans hanging.If you buy it and like it we can only hope for future series! enjoy

Nice show but it left me wanting more from the series. I was wondering if they ever made a second season or did they just make a manga?Published on March 27, 2013 by megaman0586
The story could be developed more, but for what it is, you still grow pretty attached to the characters and it's very fun to watch.Published on February 18, 2013 by Manuel Simoes III
