Phantom ~Requiem For The Phantom~ ep. 1

April 11, 2009

As I mentioned in a previous post, Phantom was one of the new anime this season on my watchlist, and from the first episode it looks pretty good.



The anime focuses on two characters Ein and Zwei who work for an organization called Inferno, and their occupations: assassins. The episode starts off with Zwei infiltrating some building and meeting up with Ein (who’s in a maid uniform), all the while dodging gunfire and headshotting random dudes in suits. In the middle of the fight, the episode does a flashback to before Zwei became an assassin. The flashback goes to when Zwei was first captured by Inferno and wakes up in a locked room with no memory of who he is (since his memories of himself had been erased). All he remembers after seeing his bag on the floor and looking at a mirror is that he’s a Japanses tourist. He then decides to break out of the room, but soon after leaving the room, he is attacked by a woman wearing a mask (Ein a.k.a. Phantom) who tells him to fight her if he doesn’t want to die (this is because Inferno wants to test his abilities to see if they can make him into an assassin). Ein chases Zwei around what appears to be an abandoned factory and shooting at his feet with a gun before throwing him a knife and the two duke it out (which was pretty awesome). Zwei overpowers Ein, but decides not to kill her and leaves the factory only to be shot with a tranquilizer gun.
