[New TV Special] Shoka


Edo period Japan, a technique which utilizes drawing to summon monsters is being used to disrupt the peace and order of the capital. The clan that holds the secret to this special technique is put in charge to find out who are the enemy and for what purpose they're causing this.



This is a TV special that is only one episode long. The art style is very interesting. It's somewhat rough but orderly, feels somewhat like the style Windy Tale was done in. The concept feels like it's mostly borrowed from Read or Die, and the story is really nothing more than a typical good vs. evil where the evil is just a small grudge the bad guy holds against the good guy. I think if they give it a real plot and expand upon it, it would be a somewhat interesting series.
