Zwei was an ordinary person, until one day, while walking the streets a night, he witnessed a brutal assassination. He managed to avoid the sniper, a young girl named Ein, but was soon captured, and had the memories of his former life erased. He is spared death only by accepting a condition: to train to become an assassin alongside Ein. Now, he must find a way to free himself from this shady world and reclaim his life once again.

ADAPTATION: Phantom: The Animation is an OVA series that is supposed to be an adaptation of the Visual Novel called "Phantom of Inferno". However, only chapter 1 of the VN is adapted and more then half of scenes from there were removed and the rest have been changed completely.

STORY: Those who have played the Visual Novel or watched "Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom" anime series will see that the base of the story is the same, but that "Phantom: The Animation" changed almost every scene. In addition, some plot developments are useless (Zwei being offered his memories back didnt't serve the plot at all), we read more

I seen someone say that this is an adaptation for the VN. I didn't read further but, if this OVA stayed clear of changing things from the VN, Phantom: The Animation is really boring and confusing at first. As the first episode went by, i couldn't understand what was really going on or why they even had a reason to pick the guy to wipe his memories clean and be picked as someone to be an assassin. While the OP sounds really good, it hypes you up to just be disappointed in the underwhelming 3 episodes. Hopefully while watching the full 12 episode series, i read more
