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.

Story: 4 (Go go Weis Kreuz Rangers!)
Art: 2 (Even Dragon Ball looks better than this)
Sound: 5 (people screaming & tires screeching makes me RAGE)
Character: 3 (The boy band heroes and ignorant girls)
Enjoyment: 2 (KEN... RAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!!!)
Overall: 16/50 = 3.2 (Funny for the wrong reasons)

Weiss Kreuz is one of those anime shows that you've feel you've seen before. And you're mostly right, the overall story has been done by every box-office smash, b-movie, independent movie, anime, TV show, and even children's programming. But what this resembles most of all is some "mature-ish" version of Power Rangers. Four main characters that specialize in their own fighting read more

Story: 4/10
I gotta admit, I was intrigued by this anime because (like any girl) I'm a sucker for the pretty boys, but pretty boys don't make good plots. Too predictable, too "safe" and definately TOO stupid. I can't stand an anime I can easily predict and doesn't have enough substance to keep me interested. Sadly this anime lacked all of the above and more.

Art: 5/10
The art wasn't TERRIBLE but it wasn't the BEST either, it was more average than anything. The facial expression lacked emotion, the women were poorly drawn (how any of them fell for those women is beyond me) and it was just read more

Did you have an anime that stuck in your head when you was a child? You watched an episode and it picks your curiosity? To me, the answer is yes.

I was, maybe in grade school when I watch one of the episodes in this anime and when I was growing up I always wondering what anime it was. At first, I post the question on the anime and recommendation well, it was my fault (tee-hee) and someone said that I should post it in the Help Identifying This Anime/Character' Thread (v7).

When I ask this in the The 'Help Identifying This Anime/Character' Thread (v7), read more

This pseudo-German-sounding anime is practically a dried-up, poorly-made, gay version of Black Lagoon. Just like guys loved that show for having hot chicks with guns shooting at stuff and throwing in some piss-poor drama and social criticism, the Knight Hunters do the exact same thing. It was adored a lot back in its prime for being a bishonen show that lasted far more than a few episodes and had a very high amount of emotional-moving and shock moments. Of course when I watched it like the completionist I am all I saw was a boring episodic show with crude visuals and lame read more
