About Wicked City Blu-ray

Wicked City is an anime film directed by Hideyuki Kikuchi and Yoshiaki Kawajiri.

It's not unusual for lady-killer Renzaburo Taki to share a night with a woman. When that woman can turn into a demonic spider, however, it's just a little worrying. The demons are on the move, and as a member of the blackguard, Taki's Job--his *real* job--is to protect the human world from the demon world. And his work is just beginning! A fragile peace exists between the two worlds, brokered, by a treaty. In order for renewal of that treaty to go smoothly, Taki has to protect Giuseppi Mayart, a two-hundred-year-old man with immense spiritual power, from an extremist faction of demons seeking to bring chaos to the two worlds.

Worst of all Taki's assigned a partner for the mission: the unnaturally beautiful Makie, a fellow black guard member... and herself a demon! The two will have to go all out to protect tt the old man. as not only are the demons going to extreme lengths to kill him but Mayart seems oddly unconcerned for his own safety. Is there more going than Taki and Makie realized?

Special features: Storyboard to Screen Segments, Trailers, and Commentary Track With Mike Toole, and includes the English language dub by Streamline, and the UK dub.

Watch It. Get this Blu-Ray version.

I think you will read a lot of reviews from people who tell you this was a classic from when they were younger. I've only watched this recently, and I have to say that this 1987 movie is awesome to watch for the first time in 2021.

Be aware this is entirely NSFW; on the scale of mainstream HBO movies (i.e. Game of Thrones). Beyond that, the violence isn't anything crazy. Some adult language.

I have watched both the remastered DVD and this blu-ray. This blu-ray version is a noticeable upgrade in visual quality and clarity. I should compare directly side by side, but I feel like some of the darker scenes are easier to make out as well on this blu-ray. There is a 5.1 English track, which I haven't not listened to. For Japanese, it is in Stereo. It is decent. My one complaint is that some scenes don't seem to be mixed at equivalent volumes, so the action scenes are noticeably louder than other scenes forcing me to occasionally turn the volume up/down during the movie.
