mafia assassinations were common in the country. they were a mysterious organization named Inferno. their strongest assassin will have a nickname called "Phantom", currently owned by a girl name Ein. a tourist happened to be on the spot, witnessing a murder. while usually witnesses were killed, he was captured n brainwashed for his potential. he was then given the name Zwei. soon he became Inferno's newest assassin, trained by Ein. with no memory of who he was, Zwei was dragged into the assassination world, filled with conspiracy n deceit.
at first glance, the anime seemed like any random assassination anime. but as the episodes proceeded, there was a sense of sadness, which was difficult to miss. a choice that they weren't given the permission to make, a fate thrown onto them just because of their potentials. the anime was slightly lengthy, but definitely worth the time.
