    A meaningfull description and fair rating. (there will be no spoilers : )
    I really recommend Gangsta for viewers who are looking for more realistic and mature content that is still tasteful and well written (and that also still holds those supernatural qualities that many of us love in our animes). The series can be a little bit violent and dramatic, but it derives from creating a series that stays true to the kind of life these main characters live in (it really isn't ...

    Off to a great start
    (Please note I am writing this as of 7/28/15 and have only watched episodes 1-4)

    This show has a lot going for it. Action, characters with mysterious pasts, plenty of blood, gangs, and some comedy. I really like the characters, the music, and animation. Highly recommend if you're into mob movies, gritty action scenes or anything with lots of guns LOL.

    Best new show of 2015 so far
    It's got the lazy coolness of Cowboy Bebop and is especially good at character development. The fight scenes so far are amazing and Nicolas Brown is the baddest, coolest, most accomplished character I've seen in a long time. It also seems to have the potential to be a gut wrenching story similar to Gungrave. Prepare to be blown away by this incredibly unique addition. It's got cult classic written ...

    Gritty, Humorous, and Fantastic!
    I love this show! I normally don't rewatch anything because I already know what's going to happen, yet I find myself rewatching episodes of Gangsta in anticipation for the next!

    This series is well animated with a great soundtrack and the opening alone is enough proof. It's crass and gory but what can you expect from a show about the mafia, men for hire, and prostitute protagonists? There's an ...

    The first episode does not disapoint
    You know where to look. Find the first episode.
    If I had to relate this to another show to give you a comparison, I would say a cowboy be-bop/fma hybrid. I am pulling that opinion from the art and dark overall nature of the story so far. So basically if you don't like the idea "sex, drugs, and rockn'roll" quit that ridiculous opinion and watch this show.

    What an epic show...
    Only been 1 episode and this show has got me hooked for the long run, the animation of the show is beautiful, it's got a great storyline so far and the main characters are freakin; badasses.

    If you are looking for an action show this is the one for you. What could be better for an action show that a city run by mafia families, new people trying to barge in on these families territories, police ...

  • Crashed and burned halfway through
    This is a spoiler-free review.

    Overall: 5.5/10 (Mediocre) - Gangsta is an anime that had tons of potential. At first glance, there's a lot of new and unique concepts and ideas thrown in. To name a few: An interesting desert city setting, a deaf main character, more mature female character designs, and a unique take on "superpowers" I've been dying to see for a long time. Not to mention it stood ...

  • Really Good A** Anime
    I'm in love with this anime....it has more of a real feel to it. I love all the characters in it and its also the one anime that I would like to read the manga after watching the anime...mostly because it ended on a really bad cliffhanger. I really hope another studio takes over this anime

    Black Lagoon but not quite
    Once in a while, there comes an anime series that focuses on dark and gritty element. Gangsta is one of them, as the story follows two badass dudes doing badass things. And that is the selling point of this anime.

    Coming to this, I am disappointed. Pacing is very slow compared to other similar shows. The leading duo are taking all the attention away from the supporting characters who are just ...
