Preliminary (3/5 eps)
As someone who loves the manga, I appreciate what they did with this adaption. The anime has great music, they didn’t change the art style from the manga, and the characters are still the beloved characters from the manga that I recognize and adore.

This is definitely a classic delinquent story and it’s a fun little series but it also tackles a lot of difficult topics like; r*pe, violence, and etc. Because it’s an older work, I’d say the topic of r*pe wasn’t handled very well so if that is a possible trigger, stay away from this.

Other than that, it’s very difficult to find ...

Just an awesome unknown gem of a series, not to the extent of an FLCL or some masterpiece in the rough, but a very important OVA that tackles a very rarely handled topic of Biker gangs in anime.

The 1st episode is an awesome tale about how a boy from a rich family follows his interests to become a biker after being inspired by the Hiroshima Knights, but he soon discovers that the biker life isn't what he hoped it would be.

The episodes that follow are just as awesome as they take the story in new directions.

Really if you're a fan of Sons ...
