Quotes

Balalaika: [Rock hands phone to Dutch] Hi there, Dutch! I hear you went on a wild goose chase, and you got stuck playing games with Mr. Chin
Dutch: Who told you about that?
Balalaika: [Chin is strapped to a bomb in his apartment] He told me himself. Let's just say he's a bit too loud to organize any kind of conspiracy. He was blabbing away to just about everyone in town. even the dead would have known what was happening. anyways... we'll make sure nothing like this happens again.

Too fun for words
10 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

With terrific gorgeous animation from Madhouse, an excellent array of music (especially the opening), a tone that balances being over the top and fun, with intensity and violence. This series hooked me immediately and I binged it all in one day. The central best piece of entertainment, aside from the action, comes from the fun banter between characters especially the two most focused on throughout the series Rock and Revy. I could watch those two just sit and talk for hours, which is much of what the show is, and it entertained me every time. I recommend this to anyone and everyone who wants to have an adrenaline filled fun time, even if you're not an anime fan. But for someone like me who is, it was a treat.
