About Darkside Blues DVD
Darkside Blues: In the gothic landscape of the future, the Persona Century Corporation owns 99% of the world. They thought they wielded absolute power. They were wrong. There are isolated regions of the world which are beyond the Corporation's claw-like reach. One of these urban pockets of rebellion is a dangerous and lawless free-zone: Kabuki Town - also known as the Darkside of Tokyo.
Free of the Persona's storm troopers, Kabuki Town has become an anarchistic haven for misfits, violent criminals, and idealistic rebels. Now, the time of reckoning has come. A mysterious figure has appeared - a dark mystic with the power to break the Persona's grasp on the world. But the Corporation is aware of the threat he poses, and they have an army of super-human assassins and the resources of an entire world to throw against him. Can one mystic and a small band of rebels stand against a global dictatorship?

Ratings & Reviews
An Interesting 'Oldie'
For when it was released (1994), this is really a nice bit of work. Compared to what the norm was back then, the animation is good and the sound track is worth the price of admission all by itself. CENTRAL PARK MEDIA had some good titles back then.
This is how you create great atmosphere

This anime is definitely old. It is based on the 1988 manga of the same name. Despite that, the artwork is amazing and unique. Every color stands out and fits the mood perfectly. Even the music does this! If anyone ever asked me how do you create a great atmosphere for a anime, I will always point to Darkside Blues or Bayonetta Bloody Fate. The only big flaw is that not everything gets answered, the same goes for the manga. We can only hope for a sequel to square things off, but you still get the main message of the movie.
Not bad, but not terrific

2 1/2 stars if I could. The animation of this film is beautiful, and I can appreciate older anime films and am a fan of quite a few of them. This one didn't really move me a lot, but I think it's because the story line can be confusing in some spots, and I feel like the Darkside is a little too mysterious, as I couldn't relate to him. I had to rewind a lot because I didn't completely understand what was going on. I think it is worth the time to see it, but it should probably be watched several times to get through the layers.
