Finally Big Daddy and Brandon made contact. Then, he can visit Maria whenever he wants.

They're not exactly subtle with their foreshadowing of Harry becoming evil in this are they? XD Then again we already know from the first episode.

This anime is turning out to be a pleasant surprise. Good mix of action and drama. This episode was very good.

I thought Big Daddy won't allow Brandon to visit Maria. I was actually surprised.

Seems like Big Daddy is a nice person after all. And Brandon is close to him. And he now saved his life! Way to go, Brandon! I hope he will not die though..

Some slight development and action but still not what I'd like it to be for a 8/10 rated series.

My favourite episode so far, although I also expect a little more from the series.

Its getting progressively more interesting with each episode, I still wanna see how this is going to do a complete 180 and become what ever the first episode was.

Nice that Brandon was able to see Maria after some months and now he can see her in the mansion, I believe Brandon saved Big Daddy coz he take care of Maria.

By taking a bullet for Big Daddy Brandon just outshone the hell out of Harry's actions xD Guess this is were their relationship starts taking a turn for the worst.

Now that you mention it, Harry joined the Millenion for his own gains while Heat joined to protect Maria and Harry. What I'm seeing so far is that Brandon unintentionally entered the very top of The Organization while Harry is stuck, trying to climb up. No wonder he's pissed...

If i completely delete the first episode from my memory this series is well over my expectations. I really like the characters and the story so far. Brandon and Big Daddy seems to be alike. Both of them just want to protect their loved ones but Harry kind of worries me. He seems the kind of guy who won't be contempt with being just a simple member of the family. Or what is he gonna do if the old man will want to leave the organization to Brandon?

Big Daddy sure does have a big heart. It's so jarring to see that the most powerful man in Millennion is a gentle fisherman. How he started the organization reminds me of how other notorious gangs originated - from a small circle's desire to keep the order.

I'm seeing a contrast between how Brandon and Harry are moving up in Millennion. While Brandon is gaining favor with Big Daddy through his sincerity, Harry is doing whatever is necessary to quench his thirst to rise up.

Brandon managed to upstage Harry without much effort.

Every single person except for Ladd in this anime is so humanized. Even Deed was. It's such a great trait for an anime like this to have. Another mafia story 91 Days had the problem of making it obvious who was good and who was evil, one family had likable good guys, the other had fat greedy 1D pigs and insane villains, which to me was one of the biggest faults. This anime highlights the relationships between others and what makes them human. And I love it. I love it so much.

This episode from the 17:50 mark was phenomenal and this was by far the best episode yet, second being episode 2. That juxtaposition of Harry's gang spraying down Lightening thugs and Maria teaching Brandon to dance was so perfect. Death is just a part of life in this world, the anime makes nothing more of it then that, why even show death. We hardly even get shots of people dying, more so it focuses on the results of that action and peoples reactions, which only strengthens the complexity of its cast. I don't mean to ramble on, but man this episode impressed me, I loved nearly everything about it apart from the cheesy dream segment, but that bit can be excused as a dream I suppose. What does it mean to protect? To take or as Harry put it give death to those who get in the way. When protecting what you care about does that eliminate right and wrong?

Lastly, I don't know if I'm getting used to him, or if he's getting less awkward, I think it's the latter, but Brandon is feeling a lot less awkward and more so just quiet and stoic now. Could be either, but he actually responds and talks back now, when I recall in the first episode he would be completely silent to the point that I was confident he was mute. So, I think he's gotten better which was one of my complaints at the beginning.

That was some of the most awkward and badly animated fishing I've ever seen.

I can already see what's gonna happen, Harry will want to off Big Daddy to become the boss, but Brandon will be against it and "betray" him.

Despite some janky animation (especially during the fishing scene) this was another good episode which covered alot, including Brandon and big daddy meeting for the first time, learning more about big daddy, and how harry is willing to do what it takes to make it to the top.

Now with brandon taking a bullet for big daddy and protecting him I can definitely see a conflict with harry growing amiss...
