Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom

Mafia is rife in America where assassinations are a regular occurrence on the streets. Inferno, a mysterious company, is behind most of these dealings through the use of their near-invincible human weapon, "Phantom."

One day, a Japanese tourist accidentally witnesses Phantom's latest murder. Desperate to escape, the tourist hides in a secluded building. However, Phantom, revealed to be a young woman named Ein, and the leader of Inferno 'Scythe Master' captures the tourist and brainwashes him.

Given the name 'Zwei', this once peaceful tourist is now a puppet of Inferno with no memories. Drawn into a world of lies, deceit, and violence, Zwei must fight to survive, hopefully to one day regain his memories and escape from this world where he is constantly on the brink of death.

Rating: R+ - Mild Nudity

Personal Rating: 10/10. This might be actually one of my all time favourites. It has feels and action. But still the anime is mostly about character development how Ein and Zwei try to escape from Inferno and how the organisation changed their lifes and thinking. This anime has a really touching story and is a must see.
