And yet before that ending scene I was wondering why the revenge part arrived so quickly.

Interesting development, I like where this is going but the atmosphere sure remains quite dark!

I didn't think he'd kill one of his targets so fast...
Did that guy survive??

Damn, take that to your grave! Holy shit!
Just need to find out how to quote this every time so I can dodge the stupid 30-character limit.

Fango really is a freak. That aside, this is turning out to be an interesting revenge story.

Effective chapter's development with a glorious icing in a cake with that final.

I was worried Serpente wasn't dead bc Vanno didn't give him a headshot kill and I was right. Ugh.

Angelo losing Fango like that when he was in BONDAGE and had a perfect chance for a sneak attack was just rageeeeee. Your first kill should've been a little easier but nope. He fucked up.

Wasn't expecting him to get his revenge so early on either but that's cool. Now he gotta get out of this predicament since Serpente made his escape and I doubt he's gonna cut ties with the mafia and stop killing lmao. Load of BS right there xD

If you see that my post is exactly 1 month old (or more) from when it was posted... Don't waste your time, especially when you want to reply with something petty & insignificant. Assume that I've moved on (because I have).

Didn't expect Fango to be such a masochist. The Vanetti were involved in the killings, but I didn't expect Nero and Vanno to be part of it as well. The grave scene making Serpente repent his sins was nice. Then the unexpected plot twist to Vanno was awesome. It's shocking that Serpente's body disappeared, but I'd assume that Orcos took his body away.

If you haven't known yet, the OP is done by the same guy who did the Psycho pass OP. I got it the first time.

Also, I would never have guessed that the Orco guy was a M. Though I found it suspicious when the guy was doing the moaning.

Karma also bites back on the guy who was trying to get revenge.

I hate Angela. He is involving his friend in the Mafia business. If he gets his friend dead, he is the worst MC ever(including all NTR MCs).

The Mafia is worth shit, as always. No rules, nothing.

Also, where is the 91 days in here? Who is helping Angela? And where is the character development? So many questions.
Without change,we end up becoming the very person we hate.


I was dead until the moment I met you. I was a powerless corpse pretending to be alive. Living without power, without the ability to change my course, was bound to lead me to a slow death.

TK's got a very distinctive voice. Unravel, Tokyo Ghoul's OP, was also sung by him.

13 episodes * 7 days = 91 days. (12 eps + 1 special, heh)

Not awful, but globally unimpressed. Presentation is pretty listless as it's mostly about expotalk with panning over the scenes. As for the plot it works together, yet it's in a shoestring as it devours whatever potential characters could have in terms of depth. There's little chemistry to feel in their interactions, because the events are moving forward too quickly. Indeed, episode 2 sees the death of Tronco, Vanno's outburst at the party and the execution of his plan, all along. This looks so conveniently staged it breaks the immersion for me overall. Something as serious as a revenge gotta soak and be delayed all the more by exterior factors before the optimal conditions are met. That, to capture maximally the frustration of protagonists like Angelo or Vanno. And before you counter my point, I say no, time skips never count in the process of development. It must exist only to have plotline disregard irrelevant moments.

Talking about the contract on Fango's head, Vanno doesn't even offer basic support like learning to Angelo the basics of firearm wielding. He comes off as amateurish, even more so he's not even able to determine the reliability of a recruit after so much time in the mafia. That's lame as it makes his potentially moving relation with his slain friend worthless, reduced to the state of a plot device created for the benefit of Angelo.

The confrontation with Fango is easily the biggest highlight. I'd normally say an anime with a cast full of the likes of Fango is edgelord, but in this case he represents an added value coloring the show positively. In fact, he reminds me Nicholas Santoro in Scorsese's Casino: a batshit crazy character very short in temper, to the point it creates all sort of problems around him. I like to hate him. As for the others, due to the points I raised above, I hardly care, to be honest.


tl dr;
Fango is a great antagonist, the characterization is poorly exploited and plot staging is dull.

basically this.
-------
the OP was unfitting in visuals but the song itself. i love TK/ling but a rock song didn't fit this show at all, especially since the ED threw me off. i would have just liked a different instrumental genre.

the episode wasn't that interesting until the gun scene with the crazy dude. angelo is the only interesting character but that's only because everyone else is so boring. the writers did a huge mistake of angelo leaving his "brother", although i'm sure he did it for his protection. he should have tagged along with angelo because we would understand their relationship and all. now i know corteo had a family so he couldn't have up and left them as a child, but i think the plot should have started with angelo arriving when his mother died. that way we understand how their relationship is because they had a year of running around doing who knows what together. but now corteo is simply a tails to angelo's sonic - a sidekick that can be ignored. a sidekick that demands attention and respect would probably be robin with batman.

another problem i have on the matter is angelo's slipping in and out of corteo's life. he runs off and tries to do an assassination with next to no help. and before people say "corteo hasn't killed before!!!" neither has angelo. and maybe corteo would be as prepared to kill like his friend if, as i said before, he was with him in the year his mother died. he would understand that anger and he would feel for his friend and help him in whatever means possible. i just hope he isn't as invisible as he is now and is used as some plot point for angelo.

i'm so confused tho??? who moved that dude's body lol? angelo's in a mess now.
