Synopsis An occult anime concerning two sisters who battle the evils. (HBV)
Review KARULA MAU (fan subtitled).
A shojo horror anime that draws heavily on shinto magic, this has an excellent story and some dramatic action. The twin Oghi sisters are the current practicioners from a clan of exorcists. The opening subtitles offer several minutes of explanation before remarking wryly "And now for the quiz", but in fact this is an exciting and well-made anime of some cultural interest and I recommend it. (GC)

Although the psychic wars are excellent, the anime also has excellent suspense in the plots. (HBV) Rating ****
