Nicholas Brown and Worick Arcangelo, known in the city of Ergastalum as the "Handymen," are mercenaries for hire who take on jobs no one else can handle. Contracted by powerful mob syndicates and police alike, the Handymen have to be ready and willing for anything. After completing the order of killing a local pimp, the Handymen add Alex Benedetto—a prostitute also designated for elimination—to their ranks to protect her from forces that want her gone from the decrepit hellhole of a city she has come to call home. However, this criminal’s paradise is undergoing a profound period of change that threatens to corrode the delicate balance of power. Ergastalum was once a safe haven for "Twilights," super-human beings born as the result of a special drug but are now being hunted down by a fierce underground organization. This new threat is rising up to challenge everything the city stands for, and the Handymen will not be able to avoid this coming war.

A promising series but very incomplete, not even having an actual ending or place to leave off on.


Tragically cut short but the Studio going bankrupt and leaving the show half done, Gangsta is good for what you get. Now go read it.


Another Manglobe project that says: go read the manga.


Manglobe’s last ditch effort. Started promising, but budget constraints, pacing and too short of a season trap it in mediocrity. Rip.


A good show with a troubled production.


Badass guys and some badass girls who wreck shit up!


The plot can be a bit slow at some points, but it’s really good when it reaches its full potential. If only the show had a propper ending.

    “When do you think people die? When they are shot through the heart by the bullet of a pistol? No. When they are ravaged by an incurable disease? No. When they drink a soup made from a poisonous mushroom? No! It’s when… they are forgotten.” – Dr Hiruluk, One Piece
