Topic: Anime Movie Review, Strait Jacket.


grey !C.MxxuCiTo started this discussion 7.5 years ago #483

Strait Jacket is a anime book adaptation about a special branch of the police force that uses both magic and technology together to fight demons. All and all, the anime seemed like each and every little thing about it was very under-explained and underdeveloped, even for a book adaptation. Watching it in Japanese subs a second time revealed more of the story line but not nearly enough for it to even count. The person who is supposed to be the main character ends up not even being seen or heard from for a very large part of the movie and a emo, asshole, side character takes over. And the ending makes everything seems like nothing was accomplished/nothing was gained or nothing really happens at all. Bad guys don't lose, and good guys don't win either. One guy turns out to be a traitor and gets himself shot. Thats pretty much it.

There is some good to this OVA though, the animation, music, voice acting (both Eng and Jp), subs, and sound is absolutely great. Lots of gore and fighting. Theres also this cool demon-girl with big bug eyes on her forehead.

I'd watch it if your bored, but not if you have better stuff that you have yet to watch.

People make books into anime now?
I know that Eureka 7 was made into a book, but a book made into an anime is strange.
