    A short lived, heavily cliched, fan serviced filled,and bloody good time. This anime was fun and made no bones about it's position as a roller coaster ride for two and half months. Some criticized the show for being like any other anime. A typical mystical story with plenty of big boobed fighting women. Even if such a critique is true since when does every anime need to be Ghost in the Shell? If your looking for a no holds barred action packed gory romp then this is the amime for you. The story of a select group of humans imbued with super powers thanks to shards from a demonic amulet. Had enough appeal to keep you involved and the characters had their own appeal. Each of the agents had a horrible back story that motivated them along with the need to stop the evil from the pits from consuming the world. The show left on a cliff hanger which I find oddly appropriate. For this anime the ideal of the story going on without us is well suited. The show lets our imagination enjoy the next chapter in the mythology and compliments the buffet of fan service the show gave us.moreless
  • A short lived but still very enjoyable anime.

    The show centres on a unit of the Tokyo Police called TOKKO. Their job is to investigate and dispose of demons and monsters in secret. The plot concentrates primarily on Ranmaru Shindo a graduate from the Tokyo Police academy who has a mysterious past routed in a tragedy that cost the lives of his parents. he eventually gets involved with TOKKO and begins to unravel the mystery of that event.



    This is a solid show although it is only 13 episodes and it does suffer from a lack of character development or backstroy. Despite that the animation is good and the characters are interesting enough to keep us occupied. All in all a good show if a little short.moreless
  • Interesting and Certainly worth watching if you're a horror fan But too short and inconclusive.

    Tokko is a really Good Horror Anime, Though Not Very Original, It keeps you hooked till the end But it gives you a disappointing and Inconclusive ending. The Visuals are impressive But there are some Suspect CGI. The Action scenes are Well made, Fluent enough and Gory. The Intro and Ending themes are Excellent. The Eng Dub cast did an Excellent job. The Characters are interesting, The highlight of the show is the strange relationship That Ranmaru shares with Saya and Sakura. Just like Elfen Lied or Gantz this is Very violent and also Ends Too soon. The ending was Just Stupid and The Series Should Continue where it left off in season 2.moreless

    I'd always heard of Anime Monday on the Sci-Fi channel, but I'd never really checked into it. So last week I decided that I'd try watching Noein and Tactics, but they weren't on. Instead, some show called Tokko was. I decided to record it, and see if I liked it. I didn't like it. I LOVED it!!! OMG, this has become a favorite anime of mine! Except for that girl that wears no shirt, only a jacket that barely hides her breasts... >//> I think my favorite is Sakura... I don't know why, but there's something about her that draws me to her. I do like Ranmaru and Saya, too. But other than that, I don't know anyone else's names. I've only seen episodes 2 and 3, and I missed the pilot. Oh well, I guess I'll just catch it on youtube or something. But this is a really great show, and I highly recommend it.moreless

    This anime is an one of a kind. I am personally in love with this anime. And I have to say it was love at first site. Tokko captures you in the first episode. With its unique characters with their addicting personalities. Though there is ONE that got on my nerves but I think every anime has to have at least ONE. haha. Also the plot IS original. If anyone says other wise it is not a copy cat, it just means Tokko was the one to be copied. Because boy can no one immitate this greatness. Who ever wrote this is a genius. Because if I must say so myself this anime, to me, beat Inuyasha. Saiunkoku Monogatari, Tokyo Underground, Shion no Oh and maybe even Mai- Otome. It is just THAT captivating to me. And then you have to romance on the side. UH!! So adorable. Though the sister is a bother. But I also will not lie. Tokko is unfinished. Incomplete. Leaving us waiting, hoping, for another season. To tie all the ends up, cause they are a few. But that cannot still deny that this is an one of a kind show.

    ALSO to those hentai's out there there is a teeny bit of nudeness though no heat so sorry!! =D THough there is plenty of action, drama and mystery with a splash of a romance developing. [ But Iwont kill the story!]

    So watch it!!!moreless
