Anime Description: Demon City Shinjuku

Demon City Shinjuku is about this guy (Kyouya) who's father (Genichiro) was killed when trying to defeat Levi Rah. Levi Rah was once his rival, but he sold his soul to the devil for power. Hmm... fighting game junkies, you know this guy sure sounds like Akuma. As part of the deal, ol' Levi has to turn the Shinjuku district of Tokyo into the capital of evil monsters and demons to kill without purpose. Levi Rah and Kyouya, as well as Kyouya's father, are masters of the skill of Nempo, which is incredibly powerful.

Kyouya doesn't even try to save the world until after the peace ambassador was kidnapped, and even then it was after the ambassador's daughter got into some trouble in Shinjuku. Hmm... sound like Gundam Wing to you? Just slightly.

Kyouya doesn't have a too good understanding of Nempo, so it really isn't good for him that he has to train while in a city full of monsters out to take his life, and mystic traps. At least he finds some help while he's there. Too bad some of the help tries to kill him and dies. Oh well. Who will win? The answer may never surprise you.
