SynopsisEditAfter being devastated in the third World War (known as The Third Division), Japan was divided in two. Several years after the end of the war, a crime organization called Vischio has taken control of the destroyed city of Toshima (formerly Tokyo, Japan's capital city), where they are holding a battle game known as "Igura". The main character, a young man named Akira, is falsely accused of a crime. Once arrested, a mysterious woman appears before him, offering him freedom if he agrees to participate in Igura and defeat Igura's strongest man: the king, or "Il-re". The story follows Akira's life in the harsh, lawless Toshima as he fights both to survive and to unravel the mysteries developing around him.

NO SPOILER CONTENT
I read many reviews for this anime before I finally decided to watch it. To me, the art looked brilliant, so it was tempting, but many who have read the manga found it rather disappointing. It's too bad I haven't read the manga ;)
It was different - that I can definitely say. I haven't watched many like it, but then, I'm a girl, so this sort of thing isn't the usual - not to be stereotypical. There was a lot of fighting - little real storyline - and it generally wasn't one of my favourites.
Will I read the manga? Definitely, judging by other peoples' higher opinions of it, but whether I'm looking forward to it is a totally different matter. This anime has made me doubtful...
