It's been over a decade since the Bubble War, when the global economy burst. The rich got richer, and the poor were out of luck. Welcome to Tokyo, the city where all the winners came to jerk each other off. If you’ve got money, you can buy anything your sick mind can dream up. If you don't, you just try not to get crushed beneath the wheels. Only the wicked rule here.
Enter the Club, a secret society pandering to the ultra-rich and fulfilling their deepest desires... legal or otherwise. Sent to infiltrate the underground elite, Saiga, once a renowned war photographer now reduced to tabloid journalism, stumbles upon a depraved ceremony and discovers the ultimate beauty in Tokyo's darkest catacombs. With a tragic young girl named Kagura in tow, Saiga flees from his enemies and his own inner demons. A single kiss has ignited a chain of events that could force the entire ruling class to their knees.
Smile for the camera... or perish in the glare of its lens.
Gonzo has really become quite the popular studio when it comes to busting out anime that is strong in the eye candy field with such instant classics as Last Exile and Gankutsuou. In 2005, Gonzo released Speed Grapher which is an unusual piece of art, at least story wise.
