Peacock King

Also known as: Spirit Warrior


Summary: >

Kajaku was born under the star of ill omen, signifying the birth of the ultimate evil, however this darkness was averted when a monk took him as a disciple. Since then he's spent his life dedicated to exorcizing evil spirits. A group of Nazis targets Kajaku, attempting to kill him but he narrowly escapes. Learning that he has a sister, it appears he's the only one with the power to stop her.


Thoughts: >

Peacock King is a collection of two OVA series which are in the middle of the bigger story, and were released in reverse order in America much to my confusion.

The stories are short and very strait forward, doing the usual save the world from a demon invasion thing. If you're in the mood for that old school formula, it's pretty average but not bad either. I'm not entirely sure why Nazis were thrown into the second OVA aside from being associated with evil. I'd like to say a lot more about the action adventure stuff, but it's just not deep enough to talk about. Peacock King is a fair way to pass the time if "demons taking over the world" story is what you're in the mood for. Otherwise it's not worth digging up.
