Crime-ridden Ikebukuro is a haven for violent gangs, the Yakuza, and home to Makoto Majima. To protect his friends, this charismatic troubleshooter mediates disputes among the warring factions—even fixing problems the police can't.

But when a rising tide of violence results in Makoto losing a loved one, can he ride out the storm, or will he drown in all the spilled blood that floods his streets?

This anime is alright. It is basically just about a guy who helps solve issues for a gang in Ikebukoro. I enjoyed the first 2 episodes but then it felt like it just gives you pointless filler for the next 2. This show only has 12 episodes planned and they already waste 2 on episodes that I felt was a waste of my time. I also don't feel like I am getting a semblance of an actual plot. Just: bad things happen, mc investigates bad thing, and him and gang get rid of whatever it was that caused the bad thing to happen. That kind read more

So far this season has plenty of outstanding series both in action and episodic slice of life, such as Majo no Tabitabi, Tonikawa, Jujutsu Kaisen and Akudama Drive. Considering that Ikebukuro has exactly this same two genres, and maybe drama, as it's main highlights, it's covering a niche that is fulfilled with other shows that I consider better overall, and that makes for a pretty mild and average show for the season it's airing, and that I would only recommend for people that really like the 'street gang' vibe or that are here just to see some hot dudes having badass and beautifully animated fights read more

Well to start things of, I feel that it has an interesting story and plot to it, but it just doesn't catch my interest. With the passing 4 episodes on I found it's story interesting because it talks about how this dude, our MC goes around Ikebukuro to solve all of it's problems and all. the characters are good but they don't really catch your interest in them.

I technically heard this from Joey (The anime man, which you should subscribe and like his videos) as he sung praises of it, I felt excited about it, but when it came out read more
