An atmospheric tragedy any crime-lover can enjoy
3 October 2014 | by samcee7See all my reviews

A well put conflicting story of two assassins owned by the infamous Inferno: a new blood nobody with the natural instinct to kill, and the other known as Phantom the ghost that takes it's targets by surprise.

The series takes it's setting in a three part time division that are crucial to story and it's understanding.

The organization Inferno holds its reputation for handling targets from numerous gangs as clients, and remains completely neutral. As the lead assassin known as Phantom completes task after task, Phantom comes across a young Japanese man and Inferno abducts him giving him amnesia and a new life as an assassin.

The character development of the two assassins grows as part 1 of the series (episodes 1-10) comes to its climax where just as the viewer is expecting Reiji's motive suddenly goes wrong. Also a civil conflict within Inferno leads to it's characters involved to take note of the two assassins and must take sides.

Seeing the series take involvement with almost every aspect of crooked cops to tense cat and mouse scenes are enjoyable as well as expecting more from it's characters involved. The diverse atmosphere plays a part not only in it's plot but to the beauty of the west-coast crime that Inferno controls. The locations have a good feel to where the illegal work comes and goes as the two assassins do their work for the organization.

It's almost as if the series itself is submitting a message or homage to Hollywood crime movies and shows as the series of events that occur have memorable and thought out moments we can tell came from classic crime thrillers and inspiration from well renown directors and writers. I'd like to think that the writers and director received inspiration when making this anime possible and showing that appreciation in an entertaining series like this.

Overall: has great action sequences along with character development from mostly all fronts. A tragic story leading two lives of trained killers that leads them to "heaven".
