Kakurenbo: Hide & Seek
Anime DVD Review

This awesome-looking anime follows a group of eight masked teens as they engage in a deadly game of Hide and Seek with a group of bloodthirsty demons under the streets of Tokyo. The fast paced story follows Hikora and Yaimao, who've joined the sinister game in order to find their sister who disappeared during a previous game.

Kakurenbo: Hide & SeekPacking a tremendous visual punch unlike anything you've seen before, Kakuenbo is completely 3-D animated, except that it doesn't look it — instead, the 3D is used to deliver what looks like extremely high-quality cel-animation. The lighting effects alone are worth the price. This dark, sinister film is the very first production effort from Yamatoworks, and we hope to see more from this exciting and imaginative studio.

The DVD is loaded with over 50 minutes of exciting extras, including: Making of Kakurenbo with Commentary, Interviews with Creators Morita and Sajiki, Character Gallery, Backgrounds Gallery, and Kakurenbo: Hide & Seek Trailers.
