Anime Evo: “Typical half-demon with awesome powers kills other demons and unearths some terrible scheme behind the woodwork” is probably the first thing that comes to mind when reading the summary for the show Otomoe Youkai Zakuro. (Think InuYasha.) In the case of Zakuro, you’d be partially correct. This quickly became one of the favorite shows of the season and not just because it was pretty to look at. The storyline slapped us silly with all the drama-filled twists it took but still left us wanting more. The characters, while seemingly ordinary shojou characters at first, quickly revealed there was more than meets the eye. And don’t even us started on the drama.
