Product description

Product Description

A devastating, disgusting "Death Stench" is spreading across Japan, creating deadly mutant fish as it covers the land!

The country is being invaded by ferocious fish with sharp metal legs, hell-bent on death and destruction! Amidst the carnage, Kaori embarks on a desperate quest to find her missing boyfriend before he is lost to the mayhem that is sweeping the land. Facing four legged killer sharks, machine driven squid and the myriad dangers of Tokyo, now an urban war zone, Kaori must find the truth behind these mechanical monsters and face an evil greater than she ever could have imagined. Based on the popular manga from the master of the macabre, Junji Ito (Tomie, Uzumaki), Gyo: Tokyo Fish Attack is a bizarre thrill-ride that has to be seen to be believed!

I went into this not expecting too much, but with a slight hope due to the involvement of studio Ufotable and the director of Kara no Kyoukai: Mugen Rasen on board, but at the end of the day this film is just bad. The animation is obviously great due to Ufotable's work on it, but the acting feels flat and lifeless, the plot moves at such a pace that it's not possible to empathise with any of the characters when something happens to them, because you simply don't care, and the subtitles are so rife with wonky translations and grammatical errors/spelling mistakes that they become a chore to read.

Honestly, the quirky shlock horror premise of this movie is not what ruins it, because I bought this fully expecting that, but aside from featuring many moments which I assume are supposed to come across as scary, all this movie really did was occasionally gross me out. Really the only redeeming factors I can give it are that the animation is great, and I did get a couple chuckles when the movie was being unintentionally funny.

I am aware that this movie is based off of a manga, which others have assured me is much better than this anime, but to be honest even if that is the case, it doesn't excuse how horrible this movie is. An anime should be able to stand alone as its own thing, without referring to the source material to explain its shortcomings. Overall just a very poor anime movie, or rather probably the worst anime I've seen. I came to it expecting a little better because it was on an online list of "great anime movies", and had really good production credentials on paper, but to be honest it is just a crappy movie even with the unintentional hilarity aside. Look elsewhere. There's much better anime out there than this.

As a fan of the original manga series by Junji Ito, I was actually quite excited about seeing Gyo. But after reading nothing but poor reviews, my expectations dropped. Luckily, it wasn't as bad as it was made out to be. It's not as good as the mangas, but it's still good.
Gyo tells the story of Kaori, a young girl on holiday with her friends, away from her boyfriend. One day they discover a fish with legs running around the house. Little do they know that this is the start of something much much bigger.
It does differ a lot from it's original source material, with much more action and a sex scene thrown in. The characters of Kaori and her fiancé Tadashi, have also changed. Almost a complete role reversal, with Kaori changing from the whining, demanding girlfriend with an over sensitive sense of smell in the mangas. To the confident trouble magnet on a quest to find her fiancé.

"Gyo: Tokyo Fish Attack" is an animated movie based on the manga series "Gyo."

The movie begins with Kaori, Erika and Aki on a holiday in Okinawa to celebrate their upcoming graduation. However something strange happens when fish begin coming ashore atop mechanical walkers. When Kaori loses contact with her fiancé Tadashi during a phone call she immediately rushes back to Tokyo to look for him. On the way she befriends a reporter trying to find out the truth behind the walking fish.

While I personally love this movie I can appreciate that it's not for everyone. The premise is pretty weird and it gets weirder as the movie progresses. There is also some pretty unsettling Cronenberg-style body horror. Lastly there is some nudity and sexual scenes. As a rule I despise that, but I'm willing to put up with it in this case.

Aside from that this is a highly entertaining movie, largely due to the main characters. Kaori in particular is a compelling and likeable main character whose devotion to her fiancé is very touching, and as such I was rooting for her all the way.

Some purist fans of the manga may dislike some of the changes the plot makes (for example in the original manga Tadashi is the main character while here it's Kaori). While I respect this view, personally I consider the movie better because of these changes.

All in all "Gyo: Tokyo Fish Attack" has its flaws but is overall a great movie.

It has a good story to it, but there are some parts where the CGI just didn't mix well with the animation. Overall, it was a great movie.
