Nobody's talked about the fact that almost every character in this episode was voiced by a very big, successful seiyuu. It's one of the best casts for an anime I've seen in a while and I just wanted to point that out.

It reminds me of Konbini Kareshi where the show was and looked like garbage but the casting was big.
Suzumura Kenichi, Kugimiya Rie, Horie Yui, Kamiya Hiroshi, Sawashiro Miyuki, Sakurai Takahiro and so many more.
Oh wow I don't think I even realized it had such a gold cast. I dropped it after 5 minutes because I couldn't stand the dialogue in one ear and the music and sound effects in the other. And it was boring garbage.

I don't know if it will be good in the long run, but it was definitively fun.

I love the ost and the mood of it makes me feel somewhat nostalgic. It reminds me of an old show I really loved as a child, Get Backers. If it's anything like that at least I'm sure I will enjoy it if nothing else.

And I love the cross-dressing hit-man. He sure leaves and strong impression.

Haven't really watched that many anime thriller/mysteries. Don't know how good this is going to be, but if it's a door into watching the other amazing ones then I'm all for it

Very confusing and fast. It seems like episode 6 or 7 and not 1. They don't presented the cast and story very well.
It’s a lot like Baccano and Durarara, its a style not many shows adopt.

Edit: I looked at your list and yeah you haven’t experienced these type, I do recommend sticking through it. Its fast but eventually everything aspects collide together and turns out marvellously.


I know what you're talking about. It can be a type of script, of storytelling. I've seen similar anime such as Mousou Dairinin and Boogiepop Phantom. These animes have managed to interweave their stories. The question is if this show will do it well too. I felt a bitter taste of Occultic;Nine in it. Hopefully it will not be the same.

I was a bit confused because there's a lot of different groups about who's who?
and there's the part where Saitou seems like a normie which would be eventually be involved in this Hakata city!
Anywayz, looks like Banba & Shemale (lolz) will be teaming-up!
The OP by Kishida Kyoudan & The Akeboshi Rockets was rockingly badass!
4/5.

It's suprisingly good. I didn't expect this tho, lol, maybe because I didn't have any expectations of it. Gives some DRRR and Baccano vibes. I think I will stick to this series to see how it'll unravel itself. I hope, I won't be disappointed.

I see you ! Agreed, Occultic;Nine was average in the end.

The trap caught me just a lil' off-guard o-o

I think the show has potential, as it has already shown it is willing to go dark and brutal, this could either make the show amazing, or cold later bring on pointless brutal scenes that make it drag on unnecessarily. Here's hoping for the former

Ling Xianming cross-dressing is very interesting. But then, who is the killer of murderers? Banba Zenji? Why make a little girl be a killer? That's so boring that I'm willing to drop the series.

So many things happened in one episode, I can hardly catch up jesus. This reminds me of Durarara. Holy shit. Calm down, show. Hahaha. But still it was a great first episode. And I have a feeling that this show will be good or great.

Having a feeling that Banba is the infamous Hitmen Hitman.

Hihi. Kaji-kyun voicing a trap--I mean a crossdresser. Pffft. Kawaii.

4/5. <3

P.S. Kaji-kyun and OnoD in one anime, and Kamiyan's missing. Hahaha. It'll be great if Kamiyan is also here, then we can have our fave trio again. Hihi.

An enjoyable mixture of Durarara, Steins;Gate and 91 Days. Looking forward to the next episodes

That was fucking awesome. I came in thinking this would be like Durarara and the action started up really quick. Kinda hard to keep track of all the characters so far but this seems to be one of the better shows so far.

Most of them are supporting characters tho, only Rie Kugimiya is the big one of the four main characters

Well... This looks like it'll be a fun ride. I'm on board. Plenty of blood, killing, tricks, and all sorts of other naughty things. Plus it has kind of a Durarara feel to it so that's nice.

Ugh there are no hot girls as a main character, and the only one that had potential was a trap. :| And people are praising the trap too. Anime fans are getting more and more degenerate. :|

After reading some comments I really was expecting this to be pretty bad, but I enjoyed it. I wanna see where this story is gonna go from now on.
Still wondering how those killers manage not to get caught in a city with so many murders if they all go to shops to buy knives, ropes, duck-tape and gloves. Isn't that a little bit too suspicious or just this new sweet killer-wannabe is that stupid? I don't think they intended to make me laugh with it but they managed.

What caught me off guard is how the subject of killing someone is conveyed so lightly. Coming into this show, I expected similarities to Durarara! and while there is a lot of similarity, I think the pacing was a little too random in this episode. I have mixed reactions on it after watching, the art is pretty generic and I had trouble recognizing if characters were introduced subsequently. The premise seems to be fun, and I think I can expect more mind-twisting from this show. The only thing I'm baffled right now is how in the world did that clumsy guy (forgot his name, was it even mentioned?!) get into the profession of assassination...

I surprisingly liked it! Although the "3% os the population is a hitman" thing is really stupid lol but oh well, let's see where it goes it is still the first episode.

I just want to mention that the politician's son looks kinda like Logan Paul what it's kinda ironic and he even has the same idiotic mentality and all lol

I really hope that guy has a cross-dressing hobby and it is not effeminate in any way, that would be refreshing.

It's nice when they introduce the tranny/crossdresser at the very beginning. Let's me know to drop it before getting invested in the characters and story.

Dropped, 1/10.

Agreed 100%. We could use more female MCs that aren't total idiots. Instead we get a mentally disabled man. Great.

I hear Kaji Yuki, I have found my favorite character. Yes, I am that easy.
(And I'm actually glad the 'trap' is voiced by a male)

Also lol @ Red Rum. Instantly reminds me of The Shining.

Kind of boring. I can't believe Durarara seems more interesting than this. Conan is better than this.

Just watched the available episodes today. The first episode was fast-paced, it felt like you have to pause and reflect so many times to digest every bit of information presented. That is quite unsual for a first episode and a bit too much for viewers who are new to the series and have no background about it. But in the end it turned out quite well. I watched this series because it has a powerhouse cast of seiyuus. One of the best shows this season.
