Synopsis

Yo Hinomura was an ordinary Japanese potter when a run-in with a Chinese mafia changed his life forever. Now an assassin for the 108 Dragons, Yo is the perfect killing machine. As a sign for remorse over his victims, he sheds tears after eliminating his targets. Because of this, he is infamously known by the Dragons and every crime syndicate in the world as "Crying Freeman."

The story is poor on this one, the first time i have watched something so bad that i couldn't take any possitivity from it, although the beginning can be deceiving because the first ep. did things almost right, if i have to score it just for that one ep. i would give it a 7 and it would deserve that read more

He doesn't cry out of pity for his victims; he often CHOOSES to kill people entirely on his own, then he cries simply because that's the read more

If the yakuza shoot Freeman, then they will shoot the virgin too. Freeman at the read more
