In Midnight Panther, a thin plot provides the vehicle for a series of ultra-violent scenes and sexual encounters.
Based on the manga with the same title, Midnight Panther suffers from the assumption that the viewer already knows the background of the story and characters. It also tries to be too many things to too many people; it can not seem to make up its mind whether it is an epic quest, a horror tale, or sexual romp.
Volume 1: "Midnight Panther" Plot Summary:
Singers by day; assassins by night, Midnight Panther revolves around Lou, a golden-skinned redhead. Lou is a member of a three girl band called "The Pussycats" (don't confuse them with 1970's Hanna-Barbara group, Josie and the Pussycats) in which each girl has her own way of killing.
Sonya seduces with her voluptuous figure and then strangles her victims with her hair. Kei is a blond woman who transforms into a panther to devour her prey. Lou uses her strength and skill with a sword to slay monsters and evildoers alike.
But do they have what it will take to defeat evil King Bad?
