Based on the manga by Tohru Fujisawa, the broadcast series Tokko (2006) is the tale of a failed alchemical experiment that's darker than anything the Elric brothers could imagine. Five years earlier, Ranmaru Shindo and his sister Saya survived an attack that killed nearly everyone in their apartment complex, including their parents. On his first day as a cop in the Mobile Investigation Unit, Ranmaru has to battle zombies who are controlled little human-faced monsters. Bullets have no effect on the zombies: they can only be killed by the swords of the ultra-secret Tokko Unit. Sneaking into guarded sites, Ranmaru learns that these devils were loosed when an aristocratic Italian family tried to attain immortality during the Middle Ages. Until all 108 devils are killed, the portal between and human and demon worlds will remain open. Tokko is a grisly variation on the familiar anime theme of demons invading Tokyo, but it's not for children or the squeamish. (Unrated, suitable for ages 17 and older: graphic violence, violence against women, grotesque imagery, brief nudity, risqué humor, profanity, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of the best in anime horror March 27, 2007
By Andrew
We stumbled on this anime online a few months ago, and were quite astonished at how good it was. Expert pacing, combinded with a suspense filled story make for quite a ride. But be warned, this anime is not for the faint of heart. It is near brutally violent. The only major flaw is, like many shows in their prime, the final episode (episode 13) leaves you on a cliff hanger that is never resolved in the anime, as the show suddenly stopped.

4.0 out of 5 stars SUPER NATURAL POLICE STORY. June 21, 2007

What whould you get if you mixed Biohunter,Hellsing,& Gantz with F.M.Alchemist?Tokko perhappes.
A running series about a young man Ranmaru,who along:with his sister survived a burtal murdering spree five years ago,at there apartment complex.As a result both brother and sister became police officers.To better solve the unsloved massace Ranmaru,has just graduated into the elite Mobile Investigation Force.It doesn't take long on the job for Ranmaru- too become invovled in a series of what appearse too be supernatural killings(which are covered up).These cases are insteantly turned over too the secruity force-who inturn enlist the even more elite Tokko force.Which includes another survior from the massacre.As events unfold the prestents of demons & devils(108 via alchemic portal) on earth is reveiled.Acting as puppet masters these monsters,brutally kill humans then release a worm like organizem into there bodies-turning them into,nearly unstopable zombie like creatures.Other discoveries Ranmaru has too deal with are the strang conections his horrific dreams have in common with the Devil Murders,and the strange appearse of a lg symbolic tatoo on his right forearm-which seems too protect him from these creatures,and may land him in Tokko group.
This appears too be a series that going too continuly include GV and possible other adult situtations.Despite being a splatter fest it is not over the top,but deffently not for young veiwers.I decided too keep up with this set by the end of the second show,but like any other series it has it down parts,So I round it off too 4 stars,on a over all bases.Animation of charecters,surroundings and detail,are pretty constitently top notice work.Plenty of gun and sword play throughout.

The first time I saw this anime series was on the sci-fi channel on the Animonday night specials. I thought this was going to be a stupid show and I skipped the first episode, a mistake I soon fixed. I think this anime series is awesome and I can't wait until more of the episodes become available for purchase. Once human, Demon like zombies tear apart humans like tissue paper in a hurricane, blood paints the walls and floors of the surrounding area and the police can't seem to make any headway from the evidence left behind until the Tokko people show up.
I think it is a little funny that the Tokko team keep making the captain furious and treating him like a child definetly adds to the enjoyment of his situation. The one thing I would like to see more of, and hopefully in the next set of episodes this will be corrected, is much more fighting. I understand they are mostly introducing characters and plots as well as themes but they could have put in a couple of more fight scenes per episode ya know.
I bought Tokko, Vol. 1 and will soon buy Vol. 2 and hopefully I will not be dissapointed. Great job with this series so far, I can't wait to see more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Monsters! December 9, 2007
Monsters, blood, swords and the potential destruction of the world. Good stuff!

It's also most of what "Tokko" is made up with, along with a generous amount of totally gratuitous cleavage. The first five episodes are mostly to set up the action, but there's some great mystery, gory action, and lots of disgusting monsters right up to the last scene.

Five years ago, a hole appeared in front of a Machida apartment complex. Savage demonic creatures emerged and slaughtered almost everyone in the building.

Now Ranmaru Shindo is on his first day's duty as a cop, when his team is attacked by zombies controlled by shrieking demon larvae. Great name for a band. 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. He begins poking around some secluded hospital rooms and a special crime lab, looking for answers -- and discovers an ancient alchemical experiment gone horribly, grotesquely awry. And it may have something to do with Machida.

The first several episodes of "Tokko" are basically a police detective story wrapped in some supernatural trappings, with lots of demons, zombies, swords, and some nasty alchemy. Things really start heating up in the final scenes of the fifth episode, when Ranmaru has to deal with something REALLY disgusting.

But it's got lots of unpretentious fun -- it rarely takes itself too seriously, or pretends that it's about anything but hacking up monsters.
