1: Collector's Edition

Review:

A classic horror manga effectively translated into an anime, 3x3 Eyes is sure to please any fan of the macabre. Filled with eerie monsters and magical creatures, it ranges from the streets of Hong Kong to the classrooms of Japan as all involved wage an all-out war.

Written and created by Yuzo Takada, who also created the hilarous All Purpose Cat Girl Nuku Nuku, 3x3 Eyes follows Pai, a young girl who is the last of her kind and Yakuzo, her somewhat unwilling companion, as they seek out the missing parts of an idol that could transform Pai into a normal human girl, as well as restoring Yakuzo's freedom.

Their adventures take them across Asia, from the suburbs of Tokyo to the streets of Hong Kong and even to the most remote regions of Tibet as they encounter many allies and enemies along way.

A must for anyone who likes a shiver up the spine.

Volume 1: "Collector's Edition" Plot Summary:

Yakumo is an high school student in Japan who is an orphan due to the fact that he lost his mother when he was young and his father has disappeared while exploring in Tibet.

One night, while on his way to work at his part-time job, he has a fateful encounter with a young woman named Pai. Pai is not human but a Sanjiyan, a race of immortal three-eyed demons. Though she appears human most of the time, when threatened she can draw upon incredible powers and creatures to defend herself.

Unfortunately for poor Yakumo, he becomes the victim of bad timing and is accidentally killed by a creature under Pai's control during that first meeting. Horrified by the attack, Pai uses her powers to revive Yakumo but not without certain conditions; Yakumo is now bound to Pai as her immortal protector and will only die if Pai dies.

With his fate now tied to Pai's. Yakumo finds himself part of a great quest to recover a very special statue that is the key to making both him and Pai human. But to achieve this goal, he must battle with evil demons, monsters and other less desirable forces who seek the statue as well.
