© 2005 Tatsunoko / Karas Committee
The worlds of humans and demons have overlapped since time immemorial, and a young woman named Yuri and her servant, the Karas, have long maintained order and balance between the worlds. But humans have finally lost their fears of the denizens of darkness. Disgusted by human arrogance, the Karas turns his back on the laws he helped uphold for so long, taking the name Ekou and leading a group of mechanized demons in an attack against the human race.

IGN (Jeremy Mullin) - 9 (out of 10)
Vol. 1 - "...one of those gorgeous puzzlebox movies that often feel more like an animation proof of concept or a small part of a multimedia project than like a standalone story."
Science Fiction Weekly (Tasha Robinson) - B
Vol. 1 - "If your taste in anime is based on graphics and action, you don't need to read any further. Buy this now."
