Show Summary

Tokyo Majin Gakuen Kenpucho: Tou - Horror, Shounen, Supernatural (May contain bloody violence, bad language, nudity)...

In the city of Tokyo the number of murders and missing people cases seems to be on the rise. A day doesn't go by without an incident occuring and the problem is getting worse however this is actually caused by the strange and surreal goings on, in the dark of the night, involving the dead coming back to life. This is only the beginning…

In Magami High School, a mysterious boy Tatsuma Hiyuu has just transferred to the school and he is already causing a ruckus with another student. The perculiar thing about Tatsuma is that he has acquired powers to help him in combat and there happens to be 4 other students in his school who also have acquired special powers. Using these powers they get together to combat the undead and demons that now plague the city.

  • A good anime although the second season doesn't quite live up to the first.

    8.0
    Essentially the show is about Tatsuma Hiyuu a transfer student who has special powers that he uses to fight against demons and monsters that plague the city. He is joined by four other highschool students who have also developed abnormal powers to help fight monsters.



    The plot sounds very much like a lot of other shows out there but it is done in a very different way. the show is very dark in tone and the characters are often reluctant to get involved with the situation. they each also harbour their own dark secrets and often difficult pasts. This gives the show a much more interesting feel than other shows with similar plots. The animation is good for the most part although the fight scenes can be difficult to follow. The show is also let dow by it's second season which just doesn't live up to the first.moreless
