Tokko (TV, 2006)

Overview

As I mentioned in my review of Claymore, my watch list of anime has been getting rather short over the last couple weeks, as a lot of series that I have been following have been wrapping up. So, I've spent the last week looking for new series to look into, and one of the ones that caught my interest when I saw it flash up in my RSS feeder was a little show called simply Tokko. As with a lot of shows this spring season, Tokko is an occult/horror based series, set in modern day Japan. Since I do like a good occult/horror story, I opened up the torrent and waited for it to download. The series opens on a group of hooded monks all gathered around a box that looked suspiciously like The Box from Hellraiser - and certainly, had similar effects when something went very wrong...

Claymore and Tokko Reviews

So what do you get when you take a girl with a sword big enough to make the Rayearth characters jealous, add in a young man with the sort of balls most anime males wish they had, and throw in some critters that like to snack on humans? I'm taking a look at Claymore this week, a series that has set about answering just that question, and is doing a damned nice job of it thus far. It's a surprisingly deep take on a story that might seem, on the face of it, to have been done before, and we're only three episodes in.
