Plot

The story takes place 10 years after the Bubble Wars have occurred and the rich and poor classes have been affected all over the world, including Japan. Tokyo has been corrupted as the rich seek to fulfill their desires and pleasures. Tatsumi Saiga, a photographer stumbles into one of the biggest underground clubs where rich members are allowed to fulfill their desires and be blessed by Kagura - a girl who has the ability to awaken their unknown desires and turn them into power.

Saiga receives the power to make things explode whenever he takes a photo, after encountering the girl. From there, Saiga and the girl escape and he tries to grant her the freedom she wants from the organization.

Audio and Visuals

Speed Grapher is not that consistent when it comes to visuals. On the one hand, you have moments that will amaze you with the way the characters are drawn. On the other hand, you have some moments that look too average for the moments. But, those can easily be overlooked.

The audio to this anime was pretty good. I enjoyed the music, but wasn't too amazed with anything. For the voiceovers, I've only seen the Japanese cast in action, and don't want to see the English anytime soon. The cast was really good and the voices flowed well with each character.

Story / Character

The story seemed kind of repetitive with all of the similar fighting situations. To be honest, it got a little boring after awhile. The idea for the show was unique and somewhat entertaining, but they just didn't execute it well in my opinion.

The love connections were kind of unnecessary and didn't really keep me entertained enough to ignore the boring storyline.

The only good thing here is that the characters were developed well. They gave a little background at a time which helped to give a little suspense.

Final Thoughts

Well, I can't recommend this one. It was too average and the story was too boring for me. They didn't do a good job keeping the viewer interested.

But, if you like the genre of mystery and drama, then it might be worth looking into.
