Set in a future world characterised by the conspicuous consumption
of all types of pleasures, Speed Grapher follows former
war photographer Saiga into an underground world of mysterious
power. After venturing into the Roppongi Club in volume one,
Saiga has uncovered his own power to make things spontaneously
combust, and now he's on the run with the mysterious woman
Kagura. In volume three, the pair are fleeing the powers of
the Tokyo underworld, leading to a confrontation in which
Saiga finally learns the truth...
Grapher is a gritty science-fantasy animated series for
mature viewers. A potent and provocative cocktail of forbidden
sex, blood-spattered violence, conspiracy and intrigue. Add
to that mix an ultra-cool anti-hero, a beautiful teenage Goddess,
a fetishistic female detective and an ever-expanding line-up
of genetically mutated super-assassins and you get a pretty
good idea what you are letting yourself in for.
the Bath: Saiga and Kagura are on the run with Ginza and
Tsujido hot on their heels.
When they stop at a spa in a remote area, Kagura learns some
shocking truths about her own origins. But the most startling
revelation is a glimpse into the human side of Shinsen.
Cometh: Saiga and Kagura search an old abandoned research
lab, hoping to find any clues about the Divine Goddess' true
nature. Suitengu already knows where they are and arrives
just in time to unleash his power on the photographer.
Critical: After narrowly escaping death after his confrontation
with Suitengu, Saiga is unconscious. But before he blanks
out he tells Ginza where Kagura is hiding.
Left Hand Lullaby: Suitengu has put his plan, to seize
control of the Tennozu Group, into action. He is moments away
from realising the most critical step (marrying Shinsen and
tying himself to the company's assets). Kagura, having learned
of Suitengu's intention, breaks out of the research facility.
Her plan is to warn her mother before it's too late.
