I love anime that has mature context. There is something about it that feels so real.
Gangsta really grabbed me right away. I wasn’t going to watch it because of the style of drawing but I read nothing but good reviews. So I gave it a try and LOVED it. The background of the two main characters was a great story told. How they met, how they were abused and how they come to what they are now.
The supporting characters are so good as well. I love the other twilights that Nicholas has to fight. The fighting scenes are amazing.
The way they created the city as this low down gritty place felt so real.
I’m just upset that there will be no second season. The production company went bankrupt. 😭😭
So I will buy the manga to try and finish the story.
So give this anime a try.
