Ice TV will explain why modern day pop culture enthusiasts need to know these gems to be cool.
Ice TV will feature the groundbreaking erotic film Urotsukidoji: Legend of the Overfiend by legendary creator Toshio Maeda on its April 8th premiere airing at 11 PM EST.
According to legend, every 3,000 years, the three realms of demons, humans, and man-beasts are united by the revival of a being more powerful than them all – the Overfiend. Determined to find the Overfiend, demons scour the human world for signs of his coming. Two such creatures, Amano Jyaku and his sister Megumi, have tracked the Overfiend to an unlikely place, Myojin University in Japan. Here, Tatsuo Nagumo and Akemi Ito are unwittingly drawn into the hunt… and after a night of horrific revelations, their lives will be forever changed. Urotsukidoji, based on the original manga by Toshio Maeda, is the classic that introduced North America to mature animation.
