Review: Speed Grapher

Plot Summary: Ten years after the Bubble War, the dichotomy between the rich and the poor in the world becomes more prominent and Japan is no exception. The rich seeks to satisfy their desires and derive pleasure for themselves, and Tokyo has materialise into such a city as a result. Saiga, once a war photographer, works for Hibara Ginza in the capitalist state of Tokyo. He infiltrates into Roppongi Club, a secretive base located in the red district area of the city, to collect information about them. However, he was caught in the process and brought forward to a girl called Kagura who was in the midst of a ritual. His contact with Kagura awakens his special ability: the power to make things explode once photographed. In order to unravel the mystery behind the Roppongi Club and Kagura, Saiga begins his solitary battle.

This is a slightly dark anime which goes into the depths of a person’s desires. It starts off with Saiga as a solitary type person, who has a knack for amazing photographs. At first it was a bit odd, and I didnt understand everything going on. But one thing I was happy for sure, that I had all the episodes downloaded by the time I started watching it. After the third or fourth episode I couldnt stop watching this anime. I kept watching it late into the night! The character is amazing, and the story line is extremely creative. Everytime you watch an episode you have more and more questions, and the mystery of his powers and how these are develop keeps you going. And through all the battles you want Saiga to win. Its a very deep story that a lot of people will enjoy.

    It seems like a mind boggling anime. Call me a kid….I loved Kare Kano (His and her cirumstances), Inuyasha, Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle.
    Its lovely when u watch it in Japanese with the subtitles or in Arabic, but it is UGLY if it is in English! They lose the sound effects!!!!!!!!!

  2. Cute UAE: I agree totally! I love hearing it in Japanese and then reading the subtitles! Its amazing, but I cant listen to the english sometimes! Sometimes they have a good dub, but sometimes it sounds like they got all the english speaking people from Texas! Its rediculously horrible! Thats why I love reading the subtitles.. only a few animes have a good dub!
