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.

Assassins are generally shown to be stoic, pragmatic machines only capable of performing their duties, no matter the situation. But what lengths would it take a person to completely rid themselves of their humanity in order to survive? Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom delves into this concept through the eyes of a brainwashed teenager forced into a dark and merciless mafia/crime war. Desperate to reclaim memories of his past life, the newly renamed Zwei must take up the occupation of an assassin in order to stay alive and escape this harsh, dark world.

I can imagine many people bashing their heads against the wall trying to write a review for this anime without revealing spoilers; so I'm going to do this as best as possible...

Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom. One thing for sure is that this is one masterfully written and awesomely portrayed bit of story telling. In the twenty six episodes you'll find that you keep saying to yourself: "just one more episode", since it is almost impossible to watch just one episode at a time. (I gave the story a solid 10/10).

The art and sound department did a superb job (the opening theme "Karma" in read more

Recommendations

Darker than black, combined with a few "American hitman movies" like Bourne, Leon, Wanted... would get you Requiem for the Phantom,
as both main characters are assassins working for a crime Syndicate.
The similarities between these two great series are evident. Average Japanese guy gets involved with a not exactly legal organization and sees his life changing completely. His initial innocence also fades more and more. Both anime are mature, dark, violent, with a rotten and outlaw feeling, and have great animation and music. Add guns, mafia, action, and you'll get some really good entertainment.
