Synopsis

Aya, Youji, Ken, and Omi are the four young men who comprise Weiss Kreuz (WK), an assassin group that eliminates certain menaces to society. Each member has his own trademark fighting style. Aya is adept at fighting with a katana, Youji has mastered the art of strangulation via strings, Ken is lethal with his metal claws, while Omi specializes in a wide array of projectiles. Under the command of a mysterious man known only as "Persia", the WK is dispatched to take care of drug rings, terrorist factions, and the like. But as things go along, they discover that most, if not all, the bad elements they have dealt with are somehow connected to the Takatori family. The Takatori family is rich, powerful, and influential. It seems if the problem is to be nipped in the bud, the WK would have to put an end to one of Japan's most prominent clans.

First of all, Weiss Kreuz is a completely terrible anime. It's a passion project created by the VA's, and it clearly shows every step of the way. That being said, this anime is so bad it's completely hilarious, like The Room.

Everything that happens in this anime is completely ridiculous. Nothing makes sense, emotions are muted when they don't need to be, people just casually die.

If you are watching the first episode and expecting a serious anime then you are sadly mistaken. This anime is absolutely ridiculous in every way. I watched it with a friend and as we watched we constantly tore this anime ...

Mixed Feelings
The original Weiß Kreuz was one of those anime I watched in my childhood. In this rewatch, I revisited this anime for nostalgia's sake and to watch a few episodes I missed.

Would I recommend it? It depends. If you like pretty boys even if the story is bad, this may satisfy you. I'm not saying that the story is so bad that you would be utterly mad (well, the sequels are egregiously bad). But they are not as good as I remembered.

The first episodes are episodic and therefore boring. The episodes focus on each individual Weiß.

The overall plot is not apparent, only that Weiß Kreuz ...

If you would have to summarize Weiß Kreuz very short, it would be: all style, no substance.

Weiß Kreuz suffers from a variety of things. And most can be traced to its origin. Being the thought-child of one of the Voice Actors, it clearly shows in the lack of quality in general. I don't want to lash out on him, but the writers didn't really know what they did with this. And the two biggest flaws, in my opinion, are the lack of direction and the lack of vision for the whole story.

The episodes follow a monster of the week style approach with an over-arcing narrative. ...
