The legend of the beast of lust...
Before I begin I'd like to mention that Inma Seiden is thoroughly confusing. It would seem as though the creators assume the viewer is already familiar with characters because very little is explained about them - the source of their strange powers, their motives - all really left way up in the air, giving the distinct impression that there is some back story lurking about somewhere. Maybe it's totally deliberate on the part of director Kan Fukumoto (of La Blue Girl, no less) in an attempt to create a little mystique but the result is one of frustration as I tried to figure out what the hell was happening, and more importantly, WHY?

We're introduced to school chairwoman Himiko who is evidently trying to resurrect something quite nasty for no apparent reason. Her adopted daughter is Hitomi, a shy, withdrawn girl (and she's sooo lovely. More on that later). She has powers of her own, again totally unexplained, and a super-deformed pet demon that openly displays a desire to rape her as soon as he gets the chance (Hitomi can transform and deform him into a terrifyingly powerful demon at will!). Right. There's the devious Kaori and her sister Mao, the rightful heirs to the Otori Academy and in conflict with their aunt Himiko (confused yet?). Mao and Hitomi know and help each other out of sticky situations despite Hitomi harbouring a hatred for Mao (for whatever reason!) And a guy named Akira vows to protect Mao with his life and is extremely powerful (and looks exactly like his namesake from Nightmare Campus!) and bad guys a shoujo manga would be proud of. Argh... Oh, and a deranged and slightly disturbing bearded man locked up by Himiko and is fed a healthy diet of female teachers. And a guy in an iron mask. Arghhhh...

Sorry to drag on, but I've attempted to illustrate just how much is going on in these three episodes. Your head is liable to explode. Don't say I didn't warn you. Things get a little clearer as the episodes progress, but it's obvious that there is more to come from the series - so be warned on that count as well, you're not getting a complete story with Inma Seiden 1-3.

I'd like to give a mention to Hitomi here. In my modest opinion, she is one of the most attractive anime characters I've ever laid eyes on - whenever she graced the screen I was transfixed (as a grown man I feel somewhat stupid talking like this but...*melts*). Depending on your standing point it can be viewed as fortunate or unfortunate that she escapes a fate involving slimy tentacles during these episodes at least.

On that subject, if you're expecting wall-to-wall tentacles you may be disappointed. Sure, there are several scenes throughout the three episodes but Inma Seiden leans heavily towards plot and character development. The sex that is present is of the fairly uncomfortable girls-screaming-stop-but-to-no-avail sort though, all lovingly rendered in explicit detail. In fact, there are several instances where a certain tentacle-rape feast is surely on the cards only for the good guys to show up and kick major ass. How about that? Competent good guys! Plus points are the decent artwork and animation and lovely character designs. This is a very recent show (2001) and kudos must go to NuTech for bringing it over so early. Perhaps they should have waited though because Inma Seiden has an epic scope and potential that three episodes simply don't have the time to fulfill. One note about the visuals - the video generally is slightly grainy and the colours are muted, but for some reason episode three throws in several CG scenes that while looking absolutely stunning with their sharpness and vivid colour, feel very out of place.

I really enjoyed Inma Seiden. Once again, NuTech opt for their tried and tested one 30-minute episode per DVD, but mercifully spare us of the adult voice actresses this time around. A knock-on effect is some gorgeous, relatively unspoiled tentacle-themed front covers (bwahaha). This box set is a very nice package indeed with typically polished presentation. The reason the score is kept as low as it is would be attributed to the fact that Inma Seiden is not complete and thus may put some people off. I know for a fact that new episodes are currently being released in Japan but no official word from NuTech yet. I really hope Inma Seiden sells well enough to justify licensing further episodes because it's a very promising and enjoyable piece of animation.
