And that was the first Episode of Gangsta.

OP fits nicely i think. So no issues there.

We're introduced to the main characters Worick, Nicholas and some girl who has yet to be named. The girl is a less than nicely treated prostitute whom we get glimpses of here and there

Worick and Nicholas are essentially a cleanup crew handling the problems the big 4 can't be bothered with and the police can't deal with.

The Big 4 being the 4 mafia families ruling the city, we get to see the heads of 3. And the daughter of one whom i imagine will have some role to play.

There's also a gunstore that Worick and Nicholas frequent for guns.. and food.

And we also have the link between the Big 4 and the cleaners, an older police offer named Chad and Cody.

As


A nice episode setting things up and introducing us to the main characters, some nice and bloody action to and overall also introduces us to what kind of world this is and what kind of people we are dealing with.

I love the black lagoon feel to it I am really expecting big things from this anime. I'm hooked, deaf soldier was a crazy mofo and favorite character so far. I hope we get more animes like this in the future to fill the void when they end.

That OP though.
Posted 7/2/15 , edited 7/2/15
Am I the only one who thought that it was weird that they started off the series with the OP and didn't show us any kind of opening scene first? Wasn't expecting that, caught me offguard.

Good first episode. Pretty much what I expected it to be and what I wanted from it. Sounds amazing, looks good and I personally love the overall style. Now we'll have to wait to see what they're going to do with the characters, but they're interesting enough, both personality- and designwise, to keep me interested for now. And even though this seems to be an episodic series, correct me if I'm wrong here, I am expecting some solid development. That ED looks promissing in that regard.

So yeah, solid start for my number one hype Anime of the season. Let's hope they can expand on it.

Episode 1

That was bloody and violent as what I had expected. I think the OP theme song fits for this show although I prefer the ED theme better.

I just think that some bits of the OST could be toned down a bit although it's quite stylistic for a show like this.
Action is solid so far. We'll find out more about that girl throughout this story most likely by the way the first episode was executed.

But overall, it was nice. The manga runs 30+ chapters so expecting a 1 cour.

Good start, which sets the tone for the series, and what to expect. It had some Black Lagoon vibes, and the action was decent & uncensored.

From what I've seen, the girl seems to have an interesting character, as she's not merely some submissive broad - she wants to be free, seen as a person, and live a better life. She's undoubtedly hot, but does not wish to make money this way, even though she could have been rolling in it.
Also, I did a double take at that early blood scene . I hope she becomes an integral part of the team.

Nicolas is looking to be my favourite character so far - so much power & attitude! His physical impediment does make him stand out.

I liked the ED song more than the OP - I just wasn't feeling it, as it should be dark and gritty.

Totally loved the first episode. It has a promising start and I hope they keep it up. The violence is well suited and I'm glad they dived straight into the action. Nicolas and that police car was my favourite part. I definitely prefer the OP, the music is upbeat and it suits the genre well.

Agree about the OP song. Liked the graphics but the song was a bit on the perky side and not in a seemingly ironic way a la Death Parade.

But other than that it was excellently adapted and I loved pretty much everything.

Episode 1

Okay episode.

Only moderately hyped for this,cause setting expectations too high for this will likely lead to this becoming a disappointment if it fails to fulfill said high expectations.

So far Nicolas is my favorite character among the trio.Really like how mysterious he is and like his voice when he talks since he's deaf and his sort of speech impediment makes he stand out/seem unique.

And just to say,Alex is ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Episode 1: Naughty Boys

Yessss. Great first episode. Good change in pace as most of everything I watch seems to be in a high school setting. We taking it to the streets! And no one under the age of 21 seems to be present. I like this adult feel.

The OP and ED are amazing so far. And it does fit perfectly for the series. Prefer the ED over the OP though but both are great in their own way.

Sex, Drugs and Violence. Yes! Love the action, and animation. Love seeing I guess you can call them vigilantes working with the law, yet breaking/avoiding the law. Doing whatever the hell they want.

Pretty excited to see where this goes from here, Expecting to see more characters introduced before seeing some plot development.
