This show... groo, where do I even start? Well, I suppose I could tell you all about the interesting plotline, now couldn't I? Okay, here goes. It is the end of the 20th century. For many, many years, the Black World (which contains shape-shifting demons) and our world (the one with people living in Tokyo... haha) have kept a treaty stating that we can live together, but in harmony. Every 500 years this treaty must be renewed, with the aid of the old man who made it all possible. Of course, conveniently, he had only been spotted two times since the last signing, and he's very "secretive." His name? Meiart.
Well, Meiart's agoraphobia ends today! The old man SPRINGS into action, hiring two bodyguards so that he can sign the treaty the next day. One of the guards is a playboy from Tokyo, named Taki. The other is a "sultry" woman from the Black World called Makie. She's really pale and kind of looks like a man, while Taki is as ugly as a donkey's rear end and tends to wander around naked a lot. Oh, wait, Makie does that TOO, although not by choice.
Okay, Taki and Makie are busy trying to keep the old man inside of a hotel. He is supposed to stay there with his guards so that he can sign the treaty the next day. This hotel is repellant of the demons from the Black World, so they are *supposed* to not be able to get inside. Makie, being from the Black World herself, has had "special training" (how convenient) so that she can stay within the barriers. My question was, if the people who gave her the training were successful, then why aren't THEY there as well? Why aren't there demons running amok because they know how to get into the barrier? Of course, that's exactly what happens. Demons come in and rip people's arms off, etc, and Meiart disappears through the toilet. He's gone off to some penthouse to screw women.
The rest of the movie is about keeping people alive until the next day. For example, after the recovery of the half dead old man, Makie goes missing. Then Taki must save her from the "punishment" that the demons will deal to her, which I don't really consider to be punishment, but that's my opinion. Then Taki and Makie must be saved by the old man (numerous times). THEN... the movie's over. ^_^
Alright, things to watch out for:
Hideyuki Kikuchi (although he did make a Wind Named Amnesia, and I liked that movie)
Streamline Pictures (but we already knew that)
Bouncing naked boobies
Large tentacles shoving themselves down peoples' throats, and then proceeding to squish in and out as if they were trying to imitate Mr. Claus in the chimmneys
Guys throwing women onto beds and sticking their hands inside of conveiently white, lacy, half see-through panties (WHAT? I JUST BOUGHT THESE TODAY AND YOU RUINED THEM WITH YOUR DEMONIC, GREASY, SLIMY, BLOODY HANDS! EEEW!)
Women unzipping Taki's pants and sticking their mouths upon certain things that must be rather... um... never mind.
Women screwing old, wrinkly men, and rubbing their bodies on him like he was a little rag for dishwashing (ooh, I've got some dead skin! I think I'll use him to get it off of me! YAY!)
Numerous rape scenes that are supposed to be exciting, I think...
People getting ripped into pieces, eyeballs coming out of peoples' heads, dismemberments... typical of a hentai movie...
Swearing, although (surprisingly) it wasn't that constant or bad.
The unending statements like "I've heard it's pretty amazing to sleep with a woman from the Black World...uh... huh huh huh..." (perverted and stupid laughter)
White, sticky goo coming out of inappropriate places. I needn't say what.
OOOH, yeah, don't forget about the about... six of the eight sex scenes being RAPE scenes!
In other words, don't bother. I mean, look at that list! It's worse than what was in Ramunes! The ONLY people I'd recommend this to are the people who are into rather plotless, violent, hentai-ish movies. Even then, I don't think this would be your top pick. Go with Cool Devices or something more interesting (no, I haven't seen that one, but I've heard all about it)
1/5 It was basic, and it was there to satisfy the demand to keep the animation GOING.
1/5 Well, we knew a few things about some people, but that's about it.
0/5 They really could have tried harder. NOT THAT WAY EITHER!! We had ENOUGH of those types of... trying HARD. HAHA.
2/5 There were a few gothic-type songs that I liked, and a couple cheesy 80's ones. Other than that, they were all choppily inserted and really dracula-ish (like the dracula from 1961 or something, I mean, it was BAD).
0/5 I have explained as well as I have wanted to. All I'll say now is that I counted eight different scenes, even if they weren't full-on sex. But still, some of those scenes even RAN INTO OTHERS, making it difficult to tell if it was supposed to be a big ol' orgy or if there was some type of motif occuring. There was detail on all the breasts of course, and a woman who mutated into a spider had a mouth where babies should have been popping out... and that also shot out white goo as a spider web. How ECCENTRIC! Besides that, the first scene was shown at a distance. It was really funny because it was supposed to be all stimulating and things, but the animation was kind of jerky and the woman's boobs looked kind of like rotten, sagging, oranges stuffed inside of a skin suit. Hehe.
0/5 Just way too much. People got clothes ripped off of them constantly.
2/5 There was violence, blood and things getting ripped apart. Blah Blah.
5/5 Good for the time it was made, which was 1992.
0/5 I hated it. I highly unrecommend it to pretty much everyone. Also, this would be the first... hentai review we've done. We aren't looking forward to doing any more, except to RIP ON THEM HORRIBLY AND MOCK THE PRODUCERS!
Totals: 14/50, or very bad. The only parts I liked were the nudey scenes, because they were funny. Okay, well, I didn't really LIKE them, but they gave me about 90 minutes worth of laughing at cheap sex animation.
Well, to begin with, the plot is that there are two worlds. The normal one that we as people live, and the BLACK WORLD. Oooh. Original. How come when something is unknown or evil or scary, we call it "black"? Dunno. Anyway. we've lived in peace for over 500 years. But now, the Black World is getting restless and want to rape and pillage and stuff like that. Well, they didn't SAY that, but we all know what tentacled demons do. Yes, TENTACLED. Try and guess! So unpredictable. So fun. (blegh) Well, in any case, the representative for our world, Meiard, an old perverted and really annoying man, needs bodyguards. He gets one from our world, named Taki. Taki is a player. He's really ugly and annoying, too. The other one he gets is from the Black World. Her name is Makia or Makie or something. I couldn't understand her through all the screaming and moaning and stuff. So excuse my getting names wrong. I couldn't understand them.
So, the old dude wants to go screw people. Taki and Makia want to protect him like they are supposed to. But to no avail. (Drat. Foiled again!) Makia gets raped and stuff. She gets raped a lot. Taki throws a fit and the old guy gets horny. Wow. The thrills involved. Well, they are going to a meeting to renew the peace treaty and save the world and boring stuff like that. Makia gets raped. Taki throws a fit, and the old guy gets horny. Then, the old guy sneaks out. He goes to a fitness place to screw people. They talk about his. . . twig and berries (thank you, Austin PowerS). How healthy he is. I care not. He gets horny. Maika probably gets raped. Taki DID throw another fit. Blah blh blah. That's how the movie goes. Many demons rape Makia. Many a fit thrown by Taki. The old guy gets horny.
1/5 Not original at all. Boring. No interesting characters. NOTHING!
1/5 You don't LEARN much about people while they are either screwing people, getting raped, or just plain old gettin horny.
0/5 Deep like a rock.
2/5 There were a few good songs. Most sucked, like the movie itself.
0/5 There were eight different scenes that were sex scenes. Body parts, like breasts, were shown. A woman's stomach was ripped in half and spurted white stuff. It wasn't supposed to LOOK like a stomach, something farther down than that. Another woman had that SAME white stuff used as a web. She was a spider lady that screwed Taki withing the first scenes. She liked to split her legs and shoot stuff. I hated her; she was annoying.
0/5 Why (yet again) did they bother to design clothes for them? NO ONE bothered to wear them! Not to mention (again) all the sex stuff. It is such a naked activity.
2/5 Okay, I'd like to rate it zero because I can, but I won't. People ripped apart a lot, lots of blood and rape-ee torture, and heads, arms, legs, limbs in general getting blown apart.
5/5 It was very good for 1992.
3/5 They probably swore a lot; I can't remember paying enough attention. IT WAS BORING, OKAY?
0/5 Made me think about how much I despise allowing myself to pick out movies. WHYWHYWHY?? Anyway, this bordered on hentai. I would consider it to be, because of eight sex scenes and all. It revolved around sex, skronking people, rapeing people and other fun stuff that you do naked. It was really boring and perverted.
Totals: 14/50, or THE LOWEST YET! Nicely animated an throbbing body parts. (blegh) Oh, the fun and goodness. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY!! (the men in jackets drag me away as I scream this)
TOTALS (both reviews coined together) 14/50. HAHA! LOOK at THAT! We mean, does it seem OBVIOUS to ANYONE out there? This movie blew chunks! It blew more than that, as a matter of fact! It blew numerous amounts of things, such as male body parts, etc! It also SUCKED big time! It sucked more than in the plot, too! It sucked the VERY SAME male parts, and females, too! Don't leave THEM out on this fun-filled romp! We must include everyone, so let's throw ALL the characters into one big old orgy and hope that the viewers are satisfied with the sighing people's mouths in the camera, conveniently NOT fogging it up with their stinky, skanky, hoochie-breath! Oh, yes, and the PLAYBOY! Taki, the playboy, who sleeps with women whose breasts look like rotted oranges hanging from skin suits, and have mouths located where their privates should be. That's so sexy, because if you try to screw it, you might get it BITTEN OFF on the same shot! Also, is the white goo THAT incredibly stringy and sticky? And MAN, these people had to have had some LARGE GLANDS to have such a LARGE AMOUNT of the white, heavenly liquid. Ha ha. Oh, yes, and let's not forget the scene where we get hung upside down and whipped with spider-woman's legs. That was so sad and moving - the lovers were whipped together! We hoped they'd fall on their heads. Hmm... what else? We can't think of anything else to make fun of without spoiling the plotline... *scoff.*

Wicked City is considered to be a great anime classic. If you feel you must own all of the classics, go ahead and purchase this hentai-action-thriller. If you feel like NOT wasting your time with the above information, please just ignore the fact that Hideyuki Kikuchi had a dud and move on to some of his other, better works, such as: A Wind Named Amnesia, Demon City Shinjuku, and Vampire Hunter D. Recommended for mature audiences who LIKE demonic women spitting white things out of mouths on certain areas of their bodies. Or for mice as poison. The rating should be STUPID or something, so NO ONE would see it. Way to go, Megan, and pick the "EROTIC THRILLER OF THE YEAR!!!!" (in Megan's defense - I didn't read it very closely. (DUH) I see evil eyes, machines and people getting beat up. automatically go OOOOOOOOh. . . . and then I realize that evil eyes, mahcines, and people getting beat up usually isn't a good combination. I promise, next time I'll pick a better one. And I'll read the backs of boxes more CAREFULLY from now on.)
