Webmaster Review

85% Brilliant

Anyway, Ein is cute. And there is a sense of security where there is no childish love element in the main story of this anime. In general, it is an animation with a profound story for adults. Mafia's political struggle is complicated. “The Ghost” theme is well drawn from the angle of three people, the last is also a shocking and wonderful story.

All characters are well-designed on the inside, and shocking farewell and reunion are also good productions. The view of the world is a completely dark world and is of a quality that can be used in movies. The point of drawing thorough cooling is highly appreciated.

Although this animation is an old work in 2009, it is a very stable drawing, and in addition, there is a fairly detailed psychological presentation (such as a slight finger movement producing a habit), and the background drawing level is also high. A realistic atmosphere of society. It draws out various stages and locales.

Both OP / ED songs are not anison / singing, but fit well with the world of the work and are music for adults. In the latter period, ED songs are particularly good, and the final episode is very good. The sound is quite distinctive and likes and dislikes, but it is quite a movie-like music that is rare for anime.

A realistic assassin that has a very unique atmosphere and the story itself. Although it is a little minor anime, I would like to recommend it to viewers who want serious content with profound feeling.

2. Synopsis

Mafia is rife in America where assassinations are a regular occurrence on the streets. Inferno, a mysterious company, is behind most of these dealings through the use of their near-invincible human weapon, “Phantom.”

One day, a Japanese tourist accidentally witnesses Phantom’s latest murder. Desperate to escape, the tourist hides in a secluded building. However, Phantom, revealed to be a young woman named Ein, and the leader of Inferno “Scythe Master” captures the tourist and brainwashes him.

Given the name “Zwei,” this once peaceful tourist is now a puppet of Inferno with no memories. Drawn into a world of lies, deceit, and violence, Zwei must fight to survive, hopefully to one day regain his memories and escape from this world where he is constantly on the brink of death.

3. Advanced can Learn Japanese with This Anime

In this anime, gun part names such as “Termon”, “Terusei”, and “Yakuba” appear normally in normal conversation. Of course, unless you are a military enthusiast, even Japanese people do not know their names. Persons other than yakuza and mafia are ordinary speakers. The content of the conversation is not too difficult, but there are many topics of mafia struggle and revenge, so it is an animation for advanced users in terms of learning Japanese. If you watch Japanese Yakuza movies frequently, you can learn Japanese behind the scenes with this anime. However, it is difficult to recommend.
