If Wicked City: Black Guard was like 'The Men in Black' but with demons, then think of Wicked City: The Other Side as Hollywood Classic 'Inception', but yet again with more demons.
Throughout this novel there are plenty of dreams inside other dreams. And often scenes that seemed authentic at first, turn out to be nothing more than smoke and mirrors in the end.
This technique could have been quite fruitful and easily elevated this work to legendary status, but instead it was a little messy and reg If Wicked City: Black Guard was like 'The Men in Black' but with demons, then think of Wicked City: The Other Side as Hollywood Classic 'Inception', but yet again with more demons.
This technique could have been quite fruitful and easily elevated this work to legendary status, but instead it was a little messy and regularly quite difficult to read.
On one occasion, I did start to get a sense of which direction the plot was heading towards, but by the end of the book I was proven wrong.
The complex web of dreams I was beginning to expect was nowhere to be seen, and instead the story was actually quite one-dimensional.
The novel did have some positives. In particular, I quite enjoyed the dialogue between Taki and Makie. They are a fantastic pairing and these scenes moved to reaffirm that.
It is a shame that Hideyuki Kikuchi seems dead set on re-purposing his demonic femme fatale as a damsel in distress.
There are also some good additions to Wicked City lore in this book, although I can't guarantee that they don't contradict anything established in the previous book.
In my last review, I described Wicked City: Black Guard as a masterpiece cheapened by its reliance on graphic sex scenes, and it appears that the author hasn't learned from his mistakes.
In fact, he has started going in the wrong direction. Literally, there must be at least twenty sex scenes in this book.
And obviously, when I say sex, I don't mean sex. I think the author should do everyone a favour and retitle this book 'Rape City: The Other Side'.
That being said, I cant say that I disliked this book. When the story eventually managed to stray from the dark path that it seemed to be glued to, the story was actually quite enjoyable.
But I must say that I found the ending a little disappointing. Who would've thought that a book, so heavily laden with sex, could turn out to be so anti-climatic.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Taki is assigned to go after Daishu, a businessman who is suspected by the police to be selling the drug "happiness", a drug from the Rapter's world that causes people to "evaporate" if they stop taking it.
Actually it is another group of Rapters that are selling the happiness. The second group attacks Daishu's group, and eventually Taki, Daishu, and Daishu's daughter join forces to fight the evil Rapters.
Lots of psychic powers, shape changing and general weirdness. I loved the Japanese anime of this movie - saw it 15 years ago and loved it.
Found this the live action version at a roadside VHS sale. I was so excited! Then I watched it and was disappointed at how BAD it was.
Gave it another chance and watched it with hubby, found new life as a comedy! Would make a great MST3K movie.
I still own the VHS copy, wouldn't part with it for anything now. I definitely would still like to see a decent modern adaptation of this movie.
The effects were so bad, I just couldn't get past was the scenes with the lasers? All Titles TV Episodes Celebs Companies Keywords Advanced Search.

Ken saved his life when Taki ran out of bullets. Taki belongs to the Anti-Rapter Special Police. One day he is transferred back to Hong Kong.
The transfer of Hong Kong is near, Anti-Rapter Special Police Headquarter transferred many agents from Hong Kong to the United Kingdom. This is a chaotic period when Hong Kong is most vulnerable to rapters.
That's why Taki is sent to Hong Kong to help. Also in the unit is Taki's buddy Ken Kai or "Ying", Jacky Cheung.
Ken's father fall in love with a rapter, thus in the veins of Ken flows the black blood of rapter, which caused distrust on him every time.
But he always hopes to prove his humanity. Besides Taki, Orchid "Loh", by Carman Lee is the only one in the unit on his side.
When Ken felt Taki did not trust him well enough, Taki tells him about his past relationship with a rapter, Windy "Gaye", Michelle Reis.
Taki was ordered to arrest Windy and was critically injured by the other rapters who were hunting down Windy.
Windy healed him out of goodwill, as she escaped to the human world in hope for peace. Windy became Taki's informant against raptors and the two become romantically bound.
However Taki was afraid he will step into Ken's father's shoes, and he eventually ran away from Windy. Once Taki is back in Hong Kong from Tokyo, the unit begins investigation on an addictive and harmful performance-enhancing drug named "Happiness".
The emotionless leader of the police unit Sergeant Kayama "Commander", Yuen Woo-ping suspects that Happiness is imported from the Rapter World by a tycoon named Daishu "Yuen", Tatsuya Nakadai.
He orders Taki and Ken to slip into Daishu's mysterious th birthday party. There Taki meets his former lover "Gaye", Michelle Reis , who is now a mistress of Daishu.
On the other hand, Daishu and his raptor staffs are having a meeting, because they don't know who is importing Happiness the drug either.
The staffs are nervous, but Daishu persuades them to control humans' economy to bargain with humans. The meeting is attacked by two rapter killers.
All other staffs are killed. Daishu is injured and Windy is injected with Happiness, however they escape from killers and police. Sergeant Kayama suspects a traitor in the unit.
