Protagonist: Kai the Silver Snake is perfect. Lone wolf and unrivaled master of the sword piercing through armies of humans and monsters alike. He does not care about Mari at all - she drags after him even though he tries to abandon her again and again. I wish there was such protagonist in every game.
1) The theater performance is great, really. Text constantly flies around, enlarges, shrinks, explodes and whatever. There's an abundance of visual and sound effects. Those small manga strips getting on top or side of each other really add up to the mood. The whole theater idea is nice, but it can only bloom applied to a hardcore violence story.
2) The deficiencies of the game are numerous. Pretty much everything is sacked to produce good visuals, tempo and action. I realize that game can hardly pretend for masterpiece status, but the hardcore setting and protagonist give evaluation a boost.
