Review:
Tokyo has always been a beloved supernatural battleground where one group is trying to rain down destruction and the other is doing their damndest to stop them. Similar to the anime X, Tokyo Requiem brings us another battle of good verse evil as the Golden Combustion (yes, combustion) fights to stop an evil society from breaking the seal of God. To achieve this they need to find four micos (or less confusingly known as priestesses) who each hold an ancient spirit within themselves. As each group searches high and low for these unsuspecting ladies the race is on, with one group trying to protect them and the other trying to rape their bodies and souls into oblivion. And when you put it like that, it's tough to know who to root for!
 
While there are quite a few characters throughout Tokyo Requiem, Homura and Hiroto are the fiery duo that make the two episodes tick. Homura is a lonely call girl who's quite good at what she does but doesn't really have any family or friends. She's one of the sought after micos, though she's completely unaware of this until a crazy woman tries to rape and kill her. That's when she first meets Hiroto as he comes to rescue her from this lesbian vixen and take her someplace safe. That never quite happens however, not with numerous assassins and otherworldly demons always getting in their way. If that wasn’t bad enough, poor Homuna has to not only has to get violated by Hiroto to help save her from a malevolent spell, but also from ravaging tentacles and a futanari demon spirit with a penis the size of her arm. If that doesn’t sound like a good time I don’t know what does.
 
It's clear that Tokyo Requiem had its sights set on being the next big hentai title to come out back in 2006. With an intricate supernatural setup, its own nomenclature and more characters with insane names than you can shake a stick at, it was really positioning itself up for the long haul. Or, at least longer than the two episodes we got, which ended before much of anything had been completed or explained. With a noticeable quality drop between the first and second episodes, I'm guessing they either grossly mismanaged their budget on the first or simply didn't do well enough to fund any more. Whatever the case may be, it's a real shame. 
 
The first episode handled all the technicals quite well, with crisp character designs and a high level of detail, but that fell by the wayside when the second episode came around. Not only did the animation get worse, but the level of sexual detail dropped considerably and the quality control went out the window. When Homura's breasts suddenly double in size it was odd enough, but when it looks like only one has doubled in size it's just downright bizarre. Those same issues plague almost all of the sex scenes in the latter half of Tokyo Requiem. Remember the futa girl with the huge dominator? (Of course you do.) While she may be packing quite the punch, once she starts putting it to use it simply looks like a mound of fleshy nothingness working some shapeless, colorless folds. How appealing does that sound? 
 
By the end of it all, Tokyo Requiem is a strong hentai title that's mired in its own budgetary woes. With a fun cast of characters, interesting story and wonderful sexual diversity, it could have been a real winner. The incomplete nature of the tale and clear quality drop in the second episode just kept it from rising to the top.
