Descendants of Darkness

7.0

AKA: Yami no Matsuei
 
Comedy, Horror, Shounen-Ai - 2000 (TV)
 
 

Even after death, life is full of paperwork and criminals. Tsuzuki Asato is a 26 year old, happy-go-lucky, and dorky shinigami (god of death) whose job is to makes sure that those who are dead remain dead and stay in their proper realms. Even though hes had this job for over 70 years, he is in the worst division with horrible pay. He also has a knack for not keeping partners (since shinigami work in pairs), but now he seems to have one that will stick around, stubborn, smart-mouthed, serious and defensive 16 year old, Kurosaki Hisoka. With each case they investigate, they come closer to the conspiracies of the serial killer Dr. Muraki Kazutaka. Tsuzukis relationship with Hisoka is growing stronger and closer...but there is a dark past to how Tsuzuki died that will not give him peace. (Source: ANN)

MyAnimeList (user: ktulu007)

: Yami no Matsuei is a really good series, in spite of a few issues. It has a strong narrative, great characters, amazing art, and good performances. If you're a fan of supernatural drama it won't disappoint. My final rating is going to be an 8/10. Next week, horror anime month continues with Kousetsu Hyaku Monogatari.

 
Anime-Planet (user: karolinami132)

: The characters were ok, I just didn't like how the Hisoka turned from main character to a more supporting one. I also really dislike guys with long hair in anime, it just doesn't look good. That is why I cannot find myself liking animations like loveless, buttt many enjoy it so this one is based more on personal preference. over all it isn't bad but I personally wouldn't put it that high.
