Moving on…

Since this is a summary of the plot…there will definitely be spoilers so if you are interested in the film, haven’t watch it yet and don’t want to be spoiled…scroll down to my overall review…LOL…Peace!

Anyways back with the short summary of Battle of Demons Trilogy

The main plot is that demons cannot produce children because there are no female demons at all….

So, they chose a pregnant woman who fits their personal criteria who has a female baby in her womb…

Whatever by force or they have happen to save that pregnant woman…

As part of the deal and or exchange, the demon would alter the female baby’s dna to have demon genes…making it possible for that child to be able to procreate to that demon one day…as that baby is their chosen demon bride at their 16th birthday…and guaranteed to received full of love and happiness from that demon. But until their 16th birthday, whereas that demon will come back from them, to marry and make said demon babies… Til their 16th birthday, the growing demon bride will have demon wings to protect her, since a demon bride is a precious human with have demon blood that happens to attract the jealously of others and unwanted lust from the men.

In Part 1 of Battle of Demons…

Asagiri Kanna, a shy and bullied girl who survived for 16 years without a demon wing by her side, on her 16th birthday is brought to a new school and told she’s destined to marry the king of demons, Kaki Kitou. Neither of them is happy with this, especially since Kaki seems so against having her as a demon bride but seems to protect her…

In Part 2 of Battle of Demons…

Moegi Sahara was just a normal 16-year-old girl, but she has to marry the demon Reiji Takatsuki, whom she did not meet yet. She is not happy about and tries to run away, but she get into a slight accident. She runs into a handsome man who helps her out. Later on, she learns that handsome man is Reiji and she gets more upset and resistant  against their nuptials but as a deal with her parents, she after a month’s stay if she still doesn’t like how things are, she will leave.

The driver is Horikawa Hibiki. The next day she finds out that he is a student at her school, and a demon…

Finally, I will talk about my thoughts and overall review of Battle of Demons Trilogy

First off…I want to clarify that I don’t usually watch programs or movies dealing with demons and along the lines of exorcism especially because it doesn’t make me comfortable due to my own religious beliefs…no offense meant by the way…

But my curiosity for this Japanese Trilogy was and their take on demons was building especially when I see it in my recommend feed on Amazon Prime Video

From what I can see instead of the usual main focus of demons as evil…

The movie Battle of Demons Trilogy portrays demons as not so bad but also not so good… There are demons are against humans… And there are demons who willing to coexist with humans or deal with humans because the majority of demons need human(s) or a certain human to give birth to their potential bride because there are no female demons for them to breed with…

Anyways…moving on the individual stories of the trilogy…

The first movie with Kanna and Kaki was more on Kaki refusing to accept Kanna as his bride due to his own personal issues in the past that in his refusal he almost hurt her…  but he obviously cares for her when he comes to her rescue later on… Kanna on the other hand is clueless about demons and that she is a demon bride. To all especially demons, it is a mystery the she survived for 16 years without a demon wing by her side became demon brides have demon blood that happens to attract the jealously of others and unwanted lust from the men. And the stronger the demon, the more potent. And unfortunately for Kanna, her demon is the leader of all demons…  But as mentioned earlier…she miraculously she survived for 16 years without a demon wing…

Anyways….as to not give too much away…hints of what Kanna went through, does make you wonder and makes your heart and mind ache as to how she survived as well… Especially the scenes with hints to her past especially in the beginning of the story is so hard to watch…it is sad and horrible to even guess the events she went through… As the story goes on things do get better for her… Also, later near the end of the film, it is hinted that she wasn’t alone as she seems and she does had help in the past… Yet, you can’t help wonder how much the help was there… I kind of wished that help was always there… But then again, in her case it is best not to dwell in her past cause things do get better for her in a sense…

On the other hand…

I honestly thought that Kanna’s and Kaki’s story is interesting but I felt that their was something lacking…and that was their chemistry.  But then again their chemistrydid somewhat improvedas the story went on and Kaki was supposed to cold and adamant against Kanna being his demon bride in the beginning …so it was kind of understandable why there is some lacking between them at first…

On the second movie…the story between Moegi and Reiji is more like falling in love while completing a challenge since Moegi makes a deal with her parents, if after a month’s stay, she still doesn’t like how things are, she will leave. So Reiji is challenged to get to her to fall in love with him and stay with him. And while they deal with their bet with eachother, they have to deal with Hibiki and his schemes…

On Moegi and Reiji…I thought the love-hate Moegi has toward Reiji was interesting. It was obvious at some points that he is capturing her attention and she is slowly falling for him but doesn’t want to admit it.  While Reiji’s teasings on her were both slick and amusing… But I felt that they were lacking in chemistry as well… even though both Moegi and Reiji are attractive people. But I did find Reiji to be

On the final and third movie…the story between Hibiki and Momoko… I thought was the most developed and the most interesting one. This is because I felt the character development and the storyline was pretty well-developed… I felt that they are the pair with a strong chemistry with the most realistic traits with flaws…

I love how each story connects to the other and explains a certain characters back story a bit more…

Anyways, I will leave it up to that as to not spoil any more then I already have…

Overall, I thought this trilogy movie was pretty good and interesting! It is worth the watch especially if you want a different take on demons.
