[Anime of the Week] Tokko (1/9-15/2010)

Well last feature was a fanservice anime, and well this one is in a way... but it's more like violence and more violence. It played on SyFy channel back when it was SciFi in the States. Back when SciFi had the best anime on mondays =( I miss those days.
Something interesting about this anime is it is based on a manga by the artist of GTO (Great Teacher Onizuka). :D That auta have sold you on wanting to watch this. Pfft.

Shindou Ranmaru has just graduated from police academy and assigned to Tokki: Special Mobile Investigation Force. On the day of his graduation, he meets the half-naked girl he has been seeing in his dreams, Rokujo Sakura. It turns out she works for a secret group within Tokki, known as Tokko: Special Public Safety Task Force. Shindou ends up joining Tokko to avenge his parents' death, and solve the mystery mass murder of residents in his hometown of Machida. Bottomless pits start to appear around Japan, and mysterious creatures emerge from them, linked to the mass murder of humans. All this to do with something called "The Box of Dirge"...
