For the Soul Taker film starring Joe Estevez see Soultaker (film).
is an anime series that focuses on Kyosuke Date who was killed by his mother, and afterward gained the ability to turn into a monster known as "The SoulTaker". The show was Tatsunoko's first attempt at a more adult (even by Japan standards) series. It originally ran for 13 episodes. Pioneer Entertainment had licensed the series and released it on 4 volumes. In 2004, Geneon (formerly Pioneer) had re-released the series under their Signature Series label.
It originally aired in the United States on TechTV as part of Anime Unleashed, and later aired on G4 after the TechTV merger.
There is a spin-off OVA featuring Komugi, Nurse Witch Komugi. It is somewhat similar to Pretty Sammy, but shares more in common with Puni Puni Poemi.
