Anime: Wicked City

Demonic creatures coming from a parallel dimension are constantly trying to get into the human world. It's actually a phenomenon dating back many decades, hence why a special undercover police/military group has been created to deal with it: the Black Corps. Taki Renzaburou is a Japanese member of this task force, as well as one of the most badass.

Very recently, the leaders of both worlds have been working on getting a peace treaty signed. Since it needs to be ratified in our world, Renzaburou is chosen to keep an eye on the negotiations, and so is Makie, a beautiful Action Girl coming from the demon world. However, not everyone is keen on having demons and humans living in peace. . .

Wicked City (妖獣都市 Yōjū Toshi) is an attack on the senses. It started as a series of horror novels written by Hideyuki Kikuchi. The first of said novels was adapted into an anime movie by Yoshiaki Kawajiri (Ninja Scroll, Cyber City Oedo 808) in The Eighties, and later into a live-action movie. Being the better-known part of the franchise, the tropes here will be taken mostly from the anime, so please add those from the movie and novels!

It's not for the faint of heart.
