My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Jun Tendo, a shy boy whose father has died in a tragic train accident, is magically transported into Japan’s medieval past. Sorcerer Gen’un hails Jun as the savior in a violent, long-running war between humans and monstrous Oni. Gen’un assigns a young warrior named Raiko to mentor Jun. Jun learns to control a dragon called Orochi. When Mizuha, a young Oni girl, is hurt Jun flies her home to find things aren’t quite what they seem.
The story is a jumbled mess and the animation is strictly low-budget. Some of the action sequences are interesting, but this film seems aimed for indiscriminating children.
