Editorial Reviews

A young man with no memories fights to salvage his humanity when he’s forced into a life of murder by a dangerous crime syndicate called Inferno. The organization gives him a new name, Zwei, and molds him into a perfect killing machine, a meticulous instrument of death created to obey his masters’ every deadly command.

Zwei’s not the only puppet controlled by Inferno; Ein is a girl as beautiful as she is brutal, as lethal as she is lost. While mafia violence escalates around them, the two assassins grow closer, and Zwei begins the struggle to reclaim his past and save Ein from a blood-soaked future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Weapons the Arcs November 28, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
This anime series covers 26 episodes and presents itself through 3 main arcs with some lapses of time occurring between the arcs. The series is a spy action thriller with a deep story that will keep you engaged in this world of mystery and discovery. Twists and turns in a world where the main character is on a quest of identity, self, love, strength, and just about a dozen other things. All the characters feel real and it was just a series that I really enjoyed. I tend to refer to this anime as the modern setting of the anime Claymore. There is not connection between those two anime but I feel like the are on par quality wise but this series isn't as mystical and is better off in the area of plot. Also, I'm not sure what the other reviewer had mention about this being the first season of two. As far as I know this is the only season and it is worth buying. If there is another season let me know!

I will be buying this without a doubt, an amazing anime not to mention having it in both bluray and dvd is without a doubt an added plus. I can't wait!

Format:Blu-ray
It took me a couple of episodes to get into this series, and it's not one I'll soon forget. It has some of the most memorable - and tragic - figures in Anime. No giant robots or wizards, demons or aliens. This is the story of professional assassins, brainwashed and brutally trained into their profession. We stare with Einz and Zwei, then later add Drei. All three are high-school aged kids, and all are the best at their profession. This is realistic, sometimes heart-wrenching, usually action-packed animation. It's similar to Ghost in the Shell in it's look and feel, only set in modern times with modern weapons. Mob bosses using specially trained assassins to keep other mob families in line. We have unrequited love, brutal assassinations (some are pretty shocking), world-class animation and voice actors, and is one of the best I have seen in ages.

The ending - the real ending - is in the final credits, and it's a shocker. Is it open ended? Not really, but I suppose a third season could be produced with appropriate explanations, although these would border on the unbelievable. You'll find yourself cheering for these three assassins, and when they inevitably have to face off against each other, you're not sure who to cheer for. On the other hand, all are cold-blooded killers, so why cheer for any of them? Because you grow to like these psychopaths.

Many of the other main characters in this series are emotionally broken, cold and calculating, manipulative - you name it. When a character meets his or her end, it's often a total shock, but done masterfully.

Do yourself a favor and get this series. It's amazingly well done, from the knife fights to gun battles, hand-to-hand to - well, you name it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly 2011's best action anime series January 28, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Anytime you put assassins, treachery, angst and possible romance in a storyline and DO THEM ALL EQUALLY WELL, you've got yourself a winner my friend! I bought this series as soon as it dropped and I absolutely loved it. I already bought the Phantom OVA that was released years ago with just a few episodes and this is basically a better re-telling of that story.

I NEVER compare anime to manga from 2 different series- (#1 it's not the same art form #2 you shouldn't compare moving art to still art). Another reviewer compared Phantom to a title that was released 15-20 years ago, criticizing this series. Comparing one title's anime to another title's MANGA is just plain bad reviewing.

This anime falls in the same category (I guess) as Noir, Madlax etc., but those can't hold a candle to this series. It has way better production quality. It was masterfully animated, excellent English dub, kick-ass action and plenty of likeable characters. The musical score made my heart wrench. Do they have an OST CD?? I wonder.
The ending, as anime sometimes does, isn't FULLY a true ending which leaves it open for a possible continuation. I hope like hell this is the case- I've already watched the whole thing twice.

While everyone's entitled to their own opinion, I have difficulty seeing anyone rate this lower than 4 stars. It's not perfect, but it's damn close. It gets a 9.5/10 from me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth owning October 19, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom was not in my must-haves but after reading various helpful reviews by other Amazon buyers I decided to give it a go. I was pleasantly surprised. The quality is very good, the story is engaging and the characters are convincingly damaged.

The story's background is a sinister organised crime syndicate named Inferno. Its members are not bound by any particular honor or loyalty, and to some extent, treachery is rewarded. A brilliant but warped behavioral scientist is part of the inner circle. We do not learn the back-story on this, and this is one of the small elements that take the overall rating down a notch. His contribution is to train a young girl to be an assassin, code-named The Phantom. He names her Ein (German for One, not a friendly nickname!) to further dehumanize her. During one of her missions she encounters a young Japanese tourist, who shows such unusual resource in escaping her immediate attacks that the sinister doctor decides to recruit him. Memory wiped, the young man is codenamed "Zwei" (Two) and trained by Ein to be just as good, if not better.

Enter the machinations of the inner circle of Inferno. Betrayal piles upon betrayal. Zwei and Ein find themselves set against one another. The Phantom Ein dies and is replaced by The Phantom Zwei. But Zwei has by that time reclaimed his humanity. He takes a very young girl under his wing, and begins training her as Drei, fearing he would otherwise be told to execute her. Then further twists reveal that Ein did not die after all. Zwei, believing Drei dead, flees with Ein to begin a new life back in Japan. And that's just the first half!

The second half should be viewed as a second season. It features different music, and subtly different art.

Hate Blu-ray/DVD Combo
The reason they do combos is because it cost's more to produce two individual DVDs. All the anime production houses aren't playing with millions of dollars like Hollywood so they can't offer them separately the demand isn't that high. So, instead of separating them they put them together.
