Kimera Art Books & Manga
For centuries, there have been legends of 'devils' walking the Earth, feeding off the blood of humans. However, the truth behind these vampiric legends has remained a mystery... until now. Strange 'lifepods' have crashed in the western mountains, bringing with them supernatural beings previously found only in the realm of folk-lore and fantasy. Vampires walk the Earth, at war with Humanity an each other, driven by the most terrifying of genetic imperatives! Like wasps seeking a spider, they have come to this planet for only one purpose: to perpetuate their species. To save Mankind, Kimera must die.
What was that all about?? >>> by skysenshi
For a second there I thought I was watching a hentai anime, what with all the tentacles inside a dated looking animated feature. There's also a mild rape scene, mind you, so it was a bit of a struggle for me to form an opinion here that's solely based on its production value and not the H aspect.
What can I say? Well, for one thing, this horror flick made me laugh. No kidding! I'm not being mean or anything, I just genuinely laughed because I'm not sure if the "vampires" are joking or not. Like for instance, that scene where this red devil said something about Kianu (3rd screenshot) being beautiful but he's missing a... It was so hard not to look at a certain portion of Kianu's anatomy just to check if the villain was absolutely serious. Another example was that I thought Kimera was a man because... well, her chest looks as flat as a board. Turns out I wasn't the only one who thought this. Her would-be accosters aren't too sure of her gender too. Looking at the credits, I now realize why this is so. The author of the Kimera is Kazuma Kodaka, known for the highly erotic shonen-ai Kizuna (which is my personal favorite, considering how much I love yaoi).
The battle scenes are engaging, though. Not bad for something that has averge-quality animation and art. The story? I wasn't quite sure what happened in there. I don't know if Kianu, or his "brother" the villain are alive. Nor do I know what happened to Osamu's friends and colleagues. All I know is that Osamu made a total ass of himself at the end. Inconsiderate bast thinking with his little weener and mistaking lust for love!
Overall? I guess I'm a little confused by this title. Is it obvious? I'm sounding much too incoherent in this write-up.
