Tokko – 2 – Guns forever

In many ways, TOKKO is the worst anime series I’ve seen for a while now; the animation (if we can call it that) is cheap and tacky and the characters are about as cookie cutter as they come, but it’s violent, has demons and pulls no punches when the time is nigh to combine the slicing quality of samurai swords with human limbs.

This is a show for the anime fans who grew up with the ultra violent OVAs of the 1980s and early 90s; we’re talking Genocyber, AD Police and Angel Cop here. The story is basically “kid’s parents are killed by monsters, so kid wants revenge”- you don’t need any more information than that, throw in some fleeting sexual innuendo and that’s about got TOKKO covered.

This episode was simply more of the same; a police officer can’t take down a bunch of zombies with his pistol so comes back at them with a military issue anti-tank machine gun. You’ll either love that idea or not and it pretty much sums up why I’m watching TOKKO. This is cheap, so-bad-it’s-funny horror.

    I agree wholeheartedly. Minus any "but …"-parts. The manga has at least great art on the positive side, but that’s also something the anime fails to deliver. TOKKO is watchable if you’re a convinced fan of the genre, but for me it’s a complete failure after two episodes.

  2. I would agree with you. this anime sux and it donst have any potential of getting any better.. the action and story lacks alot of things. its like a cheap imitaion of yu yu hakusho

  3. I have never seen it but as much as everyone rated i don’t think i shoukd see it.

    I love anime but these days it is hard to find a good anime show. Tokko proves my point if what u r saying is true.

  4. You dumb fools know nothing. it is worth seeing and i dont give a flying flip what anyone rates it dang fools
    all you who have dissed it get a f off
