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
stink of corruption permeates every brick in the city, and
Saiga's eyesight continues to grow worse by the day. As the
truth is revealed through the lens of a microscope, the photographer
is left to wonder which battlefield from his past made him
a player in this deadly game. But the genetic puzzle must
be left for another day, for Saiga has a promise to keep.
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.
