Bride of Darkness
Genre: Sci-Fi / Action
Credits: Pink Pineapple, Kitty Media
Cover Description: Sanshiro is only a servent's child, but
he loves the daughter of his Master, Momoyo. All he can do is watch
Momoyo from a hole in the ceiling and count down the days until her
fiancé, Yoichiro, returns from England to take her away forever.
When the fiancé does return, however, he brings not only separation
for the poor Sanshiro, but also a curse of lust and sadism down upon
the entire household! Sanshiro can only watch as a plague of lasciviousness
infects Momoyo's sister, the maid, and all those who come in contact
with Yoichiro. But is can this lust be natural, or does it hold the
taint of evil? By the time Sanshiro finds out, there will already be
death and possession, with the promise of a demon awakening to come!
A testament to the renowned Darkness series, Bride of Darkness combines
intense erotic storytelling with theatrical quality animation to create
an experience unlike any other.

As pure and white as the driven snow?
The very first thing I noticed about Bride of Darkness
is how the non-colored or sepia-hued background drawings and
still images work with the animated characters for a more
dramatic effect. The beauty of the combinations probably were
meant to compliment the fact that the main guy, Sanshiro,
is supposed to be an artist. These little facets also prove
to be highly creative backdrops for effective foreshadowing
Emotions such as love, lust, hatred and obsession are all
emphasized by dark undertones similar to that of Rurouni
Kenshin's OAV. The plot itself is very involving. You
see everything in the eyes of Sanshirothe blossoming
of his loved one; the darkness in the hearts of the people
around her; the sudden change in the overall atmosphere. You
feel his helplnessness and you also feel his need to be of
use. You feel his pain, his passion, and his frustrationsall
elements that revolves around Momoyo. Everything that surrounds
his thoughts and emotions are further enhanced by the enchantingly
sweet but painfully sad music.
Apparently, Bride of Darkness does not let particulars be
overlooked. They certainly don't skimp on the details, whether
it's artwork, story or even the ecchi scenes. Truly, this
is one worthy title to add to one's collection.
