I just watched the DVD version of Spriggan, oh, around 2 hours ago. WOOOHOOO! For sheer violence and gore, this anime rocks! But, if you're looking for plot development and character development, look somewhere else. But then again, what can you do with a 90 minute movie based on a 11-volume manga? Though the movie only focused on arc 2 of the manga, a lot of stuff was lost, most notably, character development. Makes me want to get all 11 volumes of the manga and read them. Ok ok, what makes Spriggan chock-full of yaoi goodness though? Well, the main character and his partner (?) are just, well, just a little too well-bonded, if yah know what I mean. I was watching the anime with my brother and my male cousin. And during scenes where one guy would save another (and they kept needing to save each other...the scrapes they got into) I was squirming in my seat with all the slashy subtext floating around. Of course, my cousin and my bro never noticed anything . But, once I got back home, I just had to see if there were any Spriggan yaoi fics...And lo and behold...yup, I found several . I'm going to be spending the next few hours reading thru some fics :D!

The long and short of it...would I recommend Spriggan? If you're a fan of hard-core violence, YUP!!! If you prefer plot development over action, go watch something else. If you're looking for another yaoi/slash fandom, you've come to the right place :).

Go on, shoo...go find Spriggan and watch!

Bye for now.
