The whole reason I joined this site is so that I can review and tell whoever bothers to read that Gangsta is a pretty cool anime.
Can't tell ya if it'd be your cup of tea but I can tell you why I loved it.
Story 8: It is nothing ground-breaking, but is interesting enough to keep you engaged. The ending pissed me off, but I'm willing to let it slide 'cause the journey to that point was good enough.
It's basically about peole with enhanced abilities created for war purposes. War ends, these "Tags" are abandoned. Less than a "normal's" worth, they are feared, hated and killed.
city this story takes place in is the only place where tags can live, thanks to a delicate balance created by "Four Fathers".
As I said, the plot is nothing special but far from dull.
Art 7: Suits the setting perfectly.
Sound 9: I should probably give it a full 10, It's even better than the Characters which are incredibly well fleshed out.
Character 9: Nicolas, Worrick, Alex, Munroe, Nina, Theo, Constance, and so many more. And you'd love them all. You'd pity the old woman begging to see her grandaughter. Enjoy the banter between the "slave" and his "contarctor". Respect the virtue of the degenerates.
There's a lot to enjoy
This whole anime is a tender exploration-not so tender at times- into the ravaged lives of misfits.
Enjoyment 10: There's humor, OUTSTANSTANDING action-sequences, a few tear-jerkers; blood, babes and battles , it's got enough of it all to keep you perfectly entertained.
Overall 9: It's a rather intelligent anime, with great characters, a story that's heads-and-shoulders better than a lot of "masterpieces" and interesting music.
I'll be watching it again. Maybe you should give it at least a try.
