There seem to be a lot of people looking for this, but trust me: You're not missing out. If you're a fan of Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom in search of more, you're looking in the wrong place. This shit is terrible. It will RUIN your image of the series. I almost stopped 2 minutes into the first one it was so bad.
"What? Shouldn't you watch it just because more is better?" Hell no. "Shouldn't it get points just because it's Phantom?" That's exactly why it's score is so low: I give it NEGATIVE points for characters and story.
Everyone acts completely opposite of how they do in the series. Scythe Master acts like a retarded clown and actually treats his minions like friends. DA FUQ? Ein acts like some sort of... nyan cat girl I don't even know. DA FUQ?! Zwei seems to be the only person to have retained some strand of his past mental stability.

They like to cut and paste lines from Requiem for the Phantom verbatim. Why? Why include serious, important, meaningful lines when you've been farting around the whole time? All it does is make them look bad.
The art isn't terrible, but there are seriously only 3-4 different frames in an entire 6-7 minute episode. I know this is called a picture drama, but seriously?
The only redeeming factor about it WOULD have been the music, which is exactly the same as in the series--but this also makes the songs look bad. I feel sorry for the actors being forced to do something so stupid.
I had to go and watch part of an episode of Requiem for the Phantom just to serve as a sort of brain bleach to get the vile poison out of my mind a bit. (But it's still there.) I'm not sure I'll ever really recover. This isn't even entertaining as a form of parody. It's just retarded.
All this after only one episode.
I'll say it again: STAY AWAY. read more
