This week for Anime Sunday I’m back with another Winter 2018 series. It’s my Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 01 Impressions!
Plot Synopsis: In Fukuoka, crime reaches new heights in the seedy underworld. In the Hakata ward of the city, there are various individuals with special talent who are professional killers, detectives, informants, and professional revenge seekers. Among those, a so-called “killer of professional killers” is becoming more than just an urban legend…
Plot: The plot is pretty interesting, although it really felt like I was watching a rather messed up version of Baccano at times. That being said I don’t recommend any kids watch this series, as it’s absolutely not for them. The subject matter is incredibly dark, so dark that I won’t actually continue to watch the series. It’s not that the plot is bad mind, it’s just that I dislike watching such dark series if I don’t have. Luckily for me, I don’t have to watch anymore so I won’t.
Characters: Our main character seems to be Banba Zenji and he’s a fairly interesting guy. The other lead, Lin, is also fairly interesting if only for his interesting disguises. The rest of the cast is also really interesting.
Artwork: It’s not amazing, nothing like a ufotable production, but it’s not terrible either. A bit better than average I guess, but only just a bit.
Music: The music is okay, but not super memorable either.
Overall: A good series, if incredibly dark.
For those who like: Mystery, Dark Stories, Good Plots, Great Cast of Characters, Good Artwork and Musical Score.
Not for those who don’t like” Any of the above, especially the Dark Stories part.
