Legend has it that the human race is not the only dominant civilization living on Earth. Two other races exist in this world: the Makai (a demon race) and the Juujinkai (a half-man, half-beast race). Once every 3,000 years, a supreme being known as the "Choujin" (Overfiend) will emerge and bring balance to all three realms on Earth. In present-day Japan, after 300 years of endless searching, a Jujinkai named Amano Jyaku has discovered the presence of the Choujin inside high school slacker Tatsuo Nagumo. But now, Amanoùalong with his sister Megumi and their sidekick Kurokoùmust protect Nagumo and his new girlfriend Akemi Ito from the Makai, who believe that Nagumo is not the Choujin, but an evil entity bent on destroying all living beings on Earth.

I always heard this was a classic (albeit explicit) anime film, but it was just bad. Even if you don't mind the explicit cartoon sex between high school girls and demons (which you really have to know about going in), there's just not much in terms of story. Halfway through the second part (this film is three 50-minute 'episodes'), the story pretty much falls apart and it seems everybody's just going through the motions. By the end, I realized it was pretty much just explicit cartoon sex, and I was left wondering what the film accomplished, if anything. If you've seen the first part, you've seen pretty much all there is.
