Product Description

Five years ago a portal to another dimesion opened in an apartment building, uleashing monsters that killed 300 people. Survivor Ranmaru Shindo has become a member of the elite Moble Investigation Force. Ranmaru's dreams of his parents' death begin to come to life as the same mysterious creatures that killed his parents return to claim more victims. His investigations of the murders are interrupted by a secret branch of the police known only as Tokko. Will Ranmaru be able to unravel the mysery behind his parents' death while investigating this mysterious police force?

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

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.

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.

Five years earlier, Ranmaru Shindo and his sister Saya survived a very brutal attack that claimed the lives of over 300 people in their apartment complex with their parents among those lost. He has chosen to become a police officer working for one of their divisions with hopes of finding his parents killers. For some reason, there's a connection between that tragedy and a young girl with a sword he sees in his dreams. What does this girl have to do with this event and monsters he claims to see? -summary

Based on the manga of the same name which was written by Tohru Fujisawa, Tokko is a 13 episode anime series directed by Masashi Abe. The main premise involves a group of supernatural detectives taking on supernatural threats, in this case it's some type of zombie like creatures possessed by demons whom devour the living. This type of story is nothing new at all in the world of anime, so you figure it would at least try to stand out in a positive way. No such luck at all, as this first volume containing the first five episodes are about as bare bones as Japanese anime can possibly be.

On the surface, Tokko has the appearance of a Gothic style anime more on the serious side with its mature looking character designs. This goes out the window rather quickly when Ranmaru's sister Saya is introduced and then you start to see those traces of her working as the comic relief, and this right here lies some of the problem.

Saya is annoying with potential to be more of a deep character, as she plays that overprotective mother role to her older brother whom comes off as irresponsible. This brother-sister connection is damaged with the puerile, immature comedy as it teases some type of silly, comical, incest thing going on here.
