Reiji Azuma, the teenaged hero of the dark, game-based adventure Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom (2009), awakens in a half- ruined building in the California desert, stripped of his memories. A mysterious girl named Ein (sic) has been assigned to teach him how to kill, using pistols, machine guns and knives. Reiji learns fast: in six months he becomes the assassin Zwei, killing people for the criminal cabal Inferno. He also becomes the favorite of conniving mob boss Claudia McCunnen, which may or may not be a sexual relationship. When the theatrical Scythe Master leads a revolt within Inferno, Zwei receives the title of The Phantom, the mob's top hit man--until a climactic gun battle goes bad. Even after he regains his memories, Reiji lacks the rambunctious panache of Akira Takizawa in Eden of the East; Ein's murderous blandness makes the title character in Key the Metal Idol seem downright vivacious. Director Koichi Mashimo tries to disguise the lack of inertia with odd camera angles, but he's defeated by the endless succession of static, talky scenes. The set comes with two discs of extras, including 12 "Picture Dramas," weird spoofs involving still artwork and hand puppets of the characters. (Rated TV MA: suitable for ages 17 and older: violence, violence against women, grotesque imagery, profanity, ethnic stereotypes, nudity, drug dealing, alcohol and tobacco use, use) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

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.

While watching the series I couldn't help but see the similarities a little between this series and another series I have Noir. You have two trained young and highly skilled partners who have trained themselves to be extremely efficient assassins for their employer or shadow cabal that they take their orders from. Of the two main characters you have Ein or Phantom as she's called by the criminal underground is a young efficient assassin who has no memories of her past and knows no life other than what her trainers have given her, she usually is only called to commit a selective killing of an enemy her keepers want to eliminate but due to an unexpected situation she winds up with a young man in the area and instead of killing him her trainers decide after feeling he might have skills they can use to keep him alive and start training him to be an elite operative like Ein. The young man once awake also realizes he has no memories due to his new keepers after Ein explains it, and now he only has one choice to become their newest operative or die. The series shows the two going through their various missions but along the way they begin to question their missions as well as whether or not they must truly live the lives forced upon them by their heartless keepers. The series will show us the situation when they duo try to take control of their own lives from the keepers who have tried to keep them on a leash, the series is exciting, somewhat humorous, and tragic. If you're expecting some kind of fan service treat like with series Sekirei and Ikki Toussen than you will be disappointed, also on that note this series is pretty hardcore nothing to gory but definitely not for young kids.

Good price. As advertised. It did say it was new but had a few rough places here and there, but again, for such a cheap price, nothing to be mad about.

Very good show! It has action, suspense and you will want to keep going....But i will be perfectly honest, I bought this without looking at other websites...If you want a good website to get DVD's for VERY CHEAP try going to [...] You can get full seasons/series of DVD's for like $15 but if you want it on Blu Ray then you might want to stick with amazon or other website.
