Yasuomi Umetsu shocked the anime world a little while ago with his hyper-violent tragic action/love story Kite. Ever since then, fans have clamored for more. Now Yasuomi returns to that universe to bring another tale or sex and violence.
This time, there are two deadly ladies and more action, sex and intrigue than in Kite. Mikura is as an accomplished killer as they get and now she faces her most difficult and deadly assignment.
The animation and characters are crisp and amazingly fluid. Yasuomi is a master of animated action. There are cut and uncut versions of this video (just as with Kite) that decide how much sex plays into the story. The uncut is definitely the better version but the cut version does not suffer that much.
Volume 1: "Mezzoforte" Plot Summary:
Mikura is the perfect contract killer - lovely to look at and deadly as sin. She gets the job done quickly and cleanly. But she faces her greatest challenge when she is hired to kill a powerful underworld boss.
This leads to a deadly game of cat and mouse between Mikura and her team and the thugs of the boss and his vicious daughter. Classic action, plot twists and plenty of dark humor round out this exciting action anime.
