Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom
The story starts off with a young man waking up in a strange room. He does not know who he is, where he came from or how he got to where he is. Suddenly there is a young girl trying to kill him. The girl’s name is Ein, aka Phantom, the most ruthless and deadly assassin around. This attack turns out to be a test to see if the boy, soon to be renamed Zwei, has what it takes to become an assassin for the crime gang known as Inferno. If he doesn’t he dies.
Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom is a series from 2009. It is a remake of the 2004 anime film Phantom, which I reviewed once before in these forums. Only here, with a two season series, it goes into more detail and continues on into the future.
The story continues as Zwei becomes Ein’s apprentice, but the student is soon about to bypass the teacher. Not surprisingly, the criminals of Inferno cannot be trusted. There are twists and turns, betrayals and schemes, with Zwei and Ein being caught in the middle. Eventually, everything goes full cycle for Zwei as the tragic events spin out of his control.
I watched the first season of this series on Netflix streaming. I will soon start season two. So if you have anything to say, please no spoilers. This is a dark and gripping story, and I am eager to watch the second half. More to come after I finish the series.
Warning: Contains bloody violence, nudity and sexual situations. Not for the kiddies!
