1: Abashiri Family


In a Blade Runner-like future, there exists a family of criminals so feared that even the thieves and police are intimidated at the mere mention of their name...Abashiri.
In this video, we see how they earned their reputation.

Created by the ever prolific Go Nagai, this family has all of his trademarks - sexy girls, deformed and lecherous men, cyborgs, and more. The action comes fast and furious and there are plenty of disturbing scenes. Go Nagai rarely pulls his punches and this is a full 9 rounds of body blows.

The animation is typical of a Go Nagai anime and will please his fans. The story, told in a series of episodes, builds on itself in both plot and intensity. This is not a video for the faint of heart!

Volume 1: "Abashiri Family" Plot Summary:

The Abashiris are a family of super criminals. Each son has a special ability and uses it for the "good" of the family. The Abashiris also have a daughter who is both lovely and deadly. The city fathers would like nothing better than to destroy the family and this is their goal.

But, the patriarch of the family has a promise to keep. This is to lead the family from the business of crime and make the Abashiris legitimate. The solution is to enroll Kikunosuke, the daughter, in a private school.

Unfortunately, the school Paradice, a pun on paradise, is a school for the training of killers. Before long, Kikunosuke ends up leading a student rebellion, in which other Abashiris also become involved.

The characters are drawn in the Go Nagai style, which means well-endowed women and misshapen men. The Abashiri Family is a very violent and gory anime with some scenes of sexual abuse. It is not recommended for young viewers.
