A Different Look at Secret Underworlds

Leave it to Urobuchi Gen to look at the dark world of assassins without the glorifying highlights of Hollywood but rather with the crushing apathy of heavily damaged humans in a world that does not care. ¬†Though not as powerful as the original visual novel, Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~ provides a solid anime adaptation worth a gander if you don’t mind leaving a bit of your soul behind.

On the opposite spectrum is Inu x Boku Secret Service, a more lighthearted romp that takes a mountain of common anime conventions and blends it down to a single smoothie.

    I am continuously collecting photos of anime pictures with different and quite odd look and made some powerpoint presentations with descriptions on it.
