    Darkside Blues

    Main Characters: Darkside, Mai
    Release Date: October 8 1994


    Plot: Darkside Blues was written by Hideyuki Kikuchi into two manga’s. It was later adapted by Yoshimichi Furukawa into an anime film. The anime is praised for the design and background track. It revolves around a town of Kabuki-cho. The resistance faction Messiah resides within the town. This is one of the last free places from Persona Century Corporation. The town is known as “The Darkside of Tokyo.” A man named Darkside resides there as well and has a mysterious aura about him.

    Why I chose this: Darkside Blues does not get enough recognition for the animated movie that it is. Confusing at first, it brings up some very good subjects. The character design and plot were great, but the background music is amazing.
