Product Description

All six episodes of the epic anime series which takes place in a fictional version of Tokyo, where humans and demons coexist. As the city's guardian, it is Karas's responsibility to keep all these different forces in balance. The task proves manageable enough until the power-hungry Eko intervenes - at Tokyo's expense, leading to an explosive battle that will decide the fate of mankind.

My first thoughts on this dvd were that is was extremely confusing.
Most of the first part, DVD1, is explained with DVD2. You need to have both to fully understand the sotry completely. So in a way that is another point that makes this boxset so great. In incorporates both DVD's so you don't have to search for the second part.
However considering that you need Karas part 2 to understand the story. Karas part 1 does a very good job getting you hooked onto it. You want to know what happens next and because it leaves a lot of loose end untied you want to know where it's going.
From a graphics point of view it is drawn extremely well. I'm not quite sure whether there are some CGI animations within the drawing but all in all it's absoloutly amazingly drawn.
After watching this anime the first time iv wanted to watch it over and over again. It seems the more you watch it the more you understand. But at the same time it's not something that you have to conentrate incredibly on, you can still watch this movie lazily and understand what's going on but again you need part 2 to understand the story as a whole.
Personally i would reccomend this movie to a friend. In fact I made a friend watch it and he came over the very next day to watch part 2 because he wanted to know what happened. This movie really gets you like that. A definate must have for all anime lovers.

Due to its breath-taking animation, character design, background designs, music and more; this is probably the best anime i've ever sign.

i know akira, cowboy bepop, etc, etc, etc, etc are the classics, but i think this brings anime bang up-to-date.

ok possibly not the easiest plot to follow, but who cares? if you want to be blown away, watch it.

Actually scrap that, it should read, extraordinarily beautiful visual art, fluid animation and incredibly inventive fight choreography, character and city design do not a great anime make. If they did though, Karas would be one the best things ever filmed. It is a breathtakingly gorgeous visual ride from beginning to end.

However... when you're watching a program and finding yourself giggling hysterically at just how little sense anything you've seen, thus far, makes and you're already at the end of the first of the two disks, then there's something deeply wrong with the writing and the direction. Indeed, Karas grasp of storytelling is virtually non-existent. Certainly through to the end of the first disk.

I keep stressing till the end of the first disk, as when you embark on the second part the narrative coherence does pick up somewhat, not to what I would consider to be acceptable standards, but some. In the first eighty minutes there are, I think, some six different plot threads running concurrently, they seem to have very little to do with one another until late on and even then it can be rather difficult to follow the motives and intentions of various characters.

Of these threads I found that I only really related to the one following the young policeman who had been assigned to Tokyo's WTF division, as his perpetual perplexity at least mirrors most of the viewers. As for anything to do with the eponymous Karas, his creepy boss, the almost obligatory metro/emo villain and the apparently unaligned, but possibly good, power in the shape of a glasses wearing, red haired, demon/human hybrid, really you better be taking notes and even then I'll be betting they'll have a tendency to read WTF most of the time.

If you like any kind of manga or anime, be it NGE, APPLESEED, COWBOY BEBOP, GITS or MONEY! for that matter, do not purchase this DVD title. Yes, SOME of the animation is of a very high quality but not much of it. The characters are, ALL, extremely weak. And the end. The end is probably the worst ending i have EVER experienced in any genre of film. I can see what the KARAS team were trying to achieve, and i'm not saying i could do any better, BUT none of the characters ever get a chance to develop and i often found myself wondering who was who. This film might appeal to a much younger audience, BUT IF YOUR OVER 15 - FORGET IT!
