At the beginning of things, mankind was given an enemy, a Demon, or Oni. A particular tribe of man has also been given the task of protecting man from this Demon, these are the Guardians.

In modern day, the Demon is named Mr. Takamiya, and he rules over a world of light created by man. The Guardian is named Tsunami Shijyo, and he lives with the dregs of man, in the broken and dark center of Tokyo, Shinjuku.

The final battle between these two is about to come to a head. With the aid of a drug, Takamiya has created an ogre out of the man Eiji. Takamiya plans on stealing the power of his new ogre to resurrect himself and to give himself an immense amount of power.

These evil plans succeed, however, Tsunami has also learned over time, also.

Twilight of the Dark Master is similar to Bio Hunter and Tokyo Revelation in story. It is quite violent, with some excellent animation.
