THE PLOT:

Kibakichi is a wondering warrior who shows up in a strange village of Yokai (demons) who only wish to be left alone. They lure criminals to collect the reward, but there is someone who want the property the village is on and is out to wipe them out.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Two problems lurks within the movie. One, Kibakichi isn't a werewolf, he's half human and half wolf demon. Two, the anti-human theme in this story. Humans only want to kill Yokai, I'm sure that's not true. But it is interesting in an Inyuyasha kind of way. So, Kibakichi gets 7 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

Even though the creature effects were good and the story was unique, I'm going to have to side with Zedd on this, those aspects were kind of weak. So I will have to give it 6 STARS.

ON THE POSTIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ CREATURE EFFECTS (The creature effects are cool.)
+ STORY (The story was unique.)
+ NOT DULL (It doesn't lull for very long.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- NOT A WEREWOLF (Half human, half wolf demon.)

...AND FINALLY...

- ANTI-HUMAN (All the humans in it was bad.)
