Review of 'Strait Jacket'

strait_jacket.jpg In an alternative universe man has developed the ability to harness magic to do his bidding but in doing so must be physically restrained using high-tech metal “jackets” or run the risk of becoming demons. It is the job of the Ministry of Magic to deal with such accidents as they hire “tactical sorcerists” to eradicate the demons. Rayotte Steinberg is an unlicensed tactical sorcerist that is called in to deal with a series of unusually well-timed attacks. Who could be behind them? An interesting premise presented with very good animation indeed though it should be noted that things do get a bit gory in parts…Characterisation is a bit basic but on the whole, this is quite enjoyable.
