It has been 10 years since Heaven's Gate appeared in South America and Hell's Gate appeared in Japan, veiling the once familiar night sky with an oppressive skyscape. Their purposes unknown, these Gates are spaces in which the very laws of physics are ignored. With the appearance of the Gates emerged Contractors, who, in exchange for their humanity, are granted supernatural abilities. In the Japanese city surrounding Hell’s Gate, Section 4 Chief Misaki Kirihara finds herself at odds with an infamous Contractor codenamed Hei. Called "Black Reaper" in the underground world, Hei, like his associates, undertakes missions for the mysterious and ruthless Syndicate while slowly peeling back the dark layers covering a nefarious plot that threatens the very existence of Contractors. From the mind of Tensai Okamura comes a sci-fi thriller taking the form of a subtle exposé on a war in which political positions and justice have no sway—a war waged exclusively in the shadows.

The prequel to My Hero Academia set several years before Quirks became the norm and socially acceptable.

Fuck you, Fuck me, Fuck this anime, Fuck everything.

Underrated and fantastic crime/action thriller built on a city full of superpowered people fighting each other for their own needs.

Really great fight sequences, memorable characters and outstanding music. Didn’t get old and stayed interesting throughout.

Great anime with an interesting plot and characters and amazing music by Yoko Kanno! It has always been one of my favorite anime

trancequina

Cool premise and almost never obnoxious in the ways anime can be. Gives “Batman: The Animated Series” vibes throughout.
