These three parts were edited together into the theatrical movie Urotsukidoji: Legend of the Overfiend, which differs from the unedited versions in several ways, most notably the subplot with Nikki, and the flashback to the Great Kantō earthquake which is rendered in the film version in color as opposed to the OVA's black and white rendition.

  2. "The Long Road to God" (March 21, 1994)
  3. "The End of the Journey" (May 20, 1995)

The final part of Urotsukidoji IV was originally to have another ending, which was fully completed but ultimately discarded. This ending was to have revealed that the apparent Choujin as seen at the start of Urotsukidoji III was not in fact the real Choujin, but yet another Makai. This alternate ending was to have set up the abandoned Urotsukidoji V.

Only one episode of this was partially completed, the released version containing numerous examples of animation that is missing in-between frames.

Interestingly, the setup for the show was far more heavily connected with the first two, more popular, chapters in the Urotsukidoji saga, with appearances by Nagumo and Akemi (unseen since the early episodes of Part III), and redesigned character models that more closely resembled the earlier episodes. Some of the less popular characters introduced in chapters III and IV, particularly Buju, were nowhere to be seen. Nevertheless, such strategies did little to get this final saga off the ground and the story was shelved.


Legacy

Legend of the Overfiend was controversial and was banned or edited severely in many countries. It is known to have brought anime as an actually recognized form of entertainment in the UK along with numerous other anime of its time (1987), but unfortunately cemented the idea in the public consciousness that it was representative of ALL anime, all but destroying the anime and manga industry in the UK until the worldwide interest in the genre beginning the late 1990's finally revived it at the turn of the century. 1987 (MCMLXXXVII) is a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Toshio Maeda's manga Urotsukidoji pioneered the modern concept of tentacle porn. Maeda explained that he invented the practice to get around strict Japanese censorship regulations, which prohibit the depiction of the penis but apparently do not prohibit showing sexual penetration by a tentacle or similar (often robotic) appendage.


There is a theory among some anime fans, possibly first espoused by The Erotic Anime Guide, that the series is an elaborate cautionary tale about teenage pregnancy.
