Makoto Kubota wandered through life, not taking things too seriously or looking too deep within himself. His job as the head of the Izumo Group's youth gang kept him pleasantly occupied with yakuza wars, mahjong and assassinations... Until the day he stumbled upon a strange drug called Wild Adapter that produces bizarre side-effects—including death. Forever changed, Kubota becomes entangled with a drifter named Minoru Tokito, and the two form an unlikely companionship that draws them deeper into the mystery of Wild Adapter...

When I heard Wild Adapter was getting an anime adaptation (or rather, an OVA), I was excited but unfortunately, these two OVAs didn't live up to the expectation.

Rather than combining the gritty world built in the manga with violence and philosophy, this seemed to take only the action aspects. I understand that trying to tell a story in just two OVAs is difficult but it disappointed me in this aspect.

The art was kind of lacking - the stark contrast from the manga was missing. Overall I would recommend it to people who have already read the manga and want more material.

(This review is based on the 1st episode, since the second&final episode hasn't aired yet. Also, I don't really do "long" reviews...so yeah)

I give this anime a score of 6 out of 10. It wasn't something that made me leap for joy, but it wasn't absolutely terrible either.

The anime is an action [b]shounen-ai[/b] (not yaoi) anime.The storyline is your typical action/hero plot where a loved one has been kidnapped, and the guy goes forth to save the day.
