Tokyo Majin Gakuen Kenpucho: Tou is an anime series which premiered in Japan on the anime satellite TV network Animax, and was directed by Shinji Ishihara. It is a part of the large Tokyo Majin Gakuen franchise, which began in 1998 with the release of the very first video game, Tokyo Majin Gakuen Kenpuuchou (sometimes transliterated as Ken Kaze Tobari). The anime itself is based on the manga adaption of this game. The first season of the anime originally aired on January 19, 2007, and ended on April 20, 2007, and was met with mixed reviews. This was mostly due to the fact the characters were redesigned, and also many from the franchise did not make it to anime form, which left many gamers dissatisfied.
Outside of Japan, it remains a more obscure title. Reviewer Brian Cirulnick at Anime.com said of the series: "Tokyo Majin is the best anime series you've never heard of. But ... it'll be the series you can't get enough of." The anime's edgy artwork, dark atmosphere, and sleek action sequences have earned it praise from those who have chanced a viewing; but the lack of closure and inside meanings left many unable to enjoy the title, having no idea of the Japan-only video game series.
