Episode 5: Phantom Requiem For The Phantom / Part 1

phantom featureed

Ein, Zwei, Drei… why, oh, why did this happen? Well, in Shadon’s hands we once again ended up watching something less than appealing, an anime from his past named Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom. And by “less than appealing” we really mean “like a ten car train derailment”.

An adaptation of a Nitroplus visual novel of the same name, Phantom is a show that had all the necessary ingredients to be good: original material by Gen Urubuchi, Yousuke Kuroda at the helm, and a potentially compelling story about identity, the loss thereof and rediscovering one’s humanity. But alas, it was not to be.

With Vorgelia returning from a brief break and special guest Yellow Redfield bringing his knowledge of the visual novel to the table, can Warui Deshou survive another round of a terrible anime? Will Shadon ever pick a good show to watch? Will the name Scythe Master ever not cause uncontrollable laughter? Find out in Part One of Warui Deshou’s discussion of Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom!
