Horrible reboot to a series that made Anime infamous and unforgetable.
By Ada Wong
The infamous anime tale of a Demon being born to destroy the world returns in the worst form possible. The original was grotesque, deviantly beautiful in its monster designs, and epic in scale. (Seriously, you have to see it to believe it. It's like 10 commandments with tentacles.) This version is animated poorly. On top of there being a very low frame count in this anime, most of the drawings and character designs themselves look simplistic and terrible. The violence itself is toned down and the sex is more standard with only one scene actually channeling the classic Overfiend feel. It's 3 disks long with about an hour on each one. It focuses more on Amano and some friend of Overfiend who is cured of cancer by his blood. Not that it matters much, the story is forgettable and the violence and sex are poorly animated, not shoking, or erotic. There is also really poor CGI animation which makes the demon world look like a Playstation1 game instead of the depictions from the original Overfiend which gave you nightmares for years and influenced all anime and games since then. Buy it if you absolutely must, but it ends in the same clifhanger and I really rather not see anymore.

Version 2.0 is not as good s version 1.0
I suppose it's OK, however, I thought it wasn't as good as the uncensored original. It appeared to be a bit milder than the original. If you can buy the DVD box set "Urotsukidoji: The Ultimate Collection" at a reasonable price or borrow it from a friend, it's subtitled not a re-dubbed, I believe you'll agree that the original is somewhat more graphic and violent. So, I thought it was only worth three stars.
