5.0 out of 5 stars A fine example of Japanese animation
Urotsukidoji was the first anime fim I bought, way back when it was first released in 1992. From that day I have been a huge fan of the film and it's certainly the type that leaves a lasting impression upon the mind!
Many critics damned this film claiming it was little more than a gory horror packed full of sex and violence. Fair to say this is true to an extent, but...

3.0 out of 5 stars GET THE U.S VERSION!!!
Well once again british censorship has distroyed a great anime. Some may not realise that the overfiend series in its total has been edited for british realise by about 2 hours. The overfiend series is one of the best in its genre boasting some excellent examples of quality animation and unusual storyline. But I as stated previously to watch it in its full glory you...

BY THE WAY I'M NOT LYDIA^^^ I'M DOMMI!

i'm no nerd o.k! i've only seen three anime's and they are classics,(Akira, ninja scroll and this one!) but a friend of mine told me about this film, the overfiend or whatever, and he said its funny as hell!
so it was cheap and i got it.
at first i was watching, and i was a little bit worried that someone would walk in and think we was watching a porn film! but it's funny as hell... that is if hell is funny... anyway, it's so funny cause it's old and retro, it's boardering on ridiculas anime porn, and it's got a gay story line that is just an reason for the producers to call it a 'movie'

all though a large fraction of the film is a complete joke the violence (even though it's cartoon) is pretty good..... great infact!

HOWEVER, i would strongly suggest you watch it only to mock it! You would be very sad if you took this film seriously! so i say open a can of beer relax and watch this hilarious but awful film with 3 mates and share a damn good laugh!

Pornographic and unsuitable for my eyes, noeone of any age should be subjected to this filth. Im not a prude but it sure was rude!
The beginning was stupid as hell.

'5 stars' YOU MUST BUY THIS DVD!
'10/10' BRILLIANT! CLASSIC ANIME!
Just some of the lies that you might be told about this film. It really is awful.
I was quite excited by this one. With all the hype it had recieved, I was sure that it would be an absolute classic. Oh how wrng was I? The well docmented sex and violence served nothing more than a controversial talking point. None of it, or only a tiny fraction of it at best, adds to the story or our understanding of the character's relationships. It's just a gimmick. A talking point.
The only saving grace for Urotsukidoji is the plot potential. Humans, Man-Beasts and Demons co-existing in seperate universes? A controller that unifies the Chaos... I mean... unifies the three worlds? (Sorry, couldn't help the Sonic reference there!) This is all excellent stuff, and I'm sure that with a little more thinking and a little less sex, this could have been a great film. Alas, it is spoiled.
Frankly, this is an insult to Japanese anime. Don't buy it under any circumstances. Even if you're just in it for the sex scenes, you'll end up disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wow.......*_*, 16 April 2006
This review is from: Urotsukidoji - Legend Of The Overfiend / Legend Of The Demon Womb [1989] [DVD] (DVD)
Mmmmkk people... this anime was, in my opinion the most funniest thing in the world!

It was so bad that it was good!

My friend lent it to me as a anime u must own!.... or something or other.

Needless to say it was in someways entertaining ( the giant penises attacking, destroying buildings and killing people lol? )

You have to watch it at least once to get to grips with the measuring scale of good anime... and the down right silly. ^_^

But one of my fave characters of all time is in this!

Amano Jyaku RULES!!
