Only BADs are our targets! Trick you! Deceive you! Cheat all fortunes of you! You can hear our stories in LA, Singapore, London, Shanghai and Tokyo, Why? Our "CON GAMEs" stage, is the whole WORLD! Edamura Masato is supposedly Japan's greatest swindler. Together with his partner Kudo, they try to trick a Frenchman in Asakusa but unexpectedly get tricked instead. The Frenchman, whom they tried to swindle, turns out to be Laurent Thierry—a much higher-level "confidence man," in control of the mafia. Edamura is yet to find out what fate awaits him, after having engaged in the Frenchman's dirty jobs...!

Encoder's Notes

This anime is great.

Video is encoded from Warmachine’s Netflix rips and subs for ep 1-14 are from Die Hot while the remaining subs are from RatRips. I will update the remaining subs with Die Hot’s when and if they are released, same goes for the eng dub.

Dual Audio is available for episodes all the episodes, with the English dub and the Signs track muxed in from KS’ release. While Japanese audio and Die Hot subs would be my go-to recommendation, I gotta admit the English VAs did a nice job. It’s amusing how Laurent calls Edamame’s accent “a weird jumble of different dialects” when he’s the one who sounds the weirdest. Anyway, I’ve totally omitted Netflix’s English subs because it doesn’t even come close to Die Hot.

Almost forgot, the first 10 minutes of the first episode in the English dub audio is still Japanese because that’s how it’s supposed to be. Don’t come complaining about it. :D

Whats new?

  • Added dual audio for Wizard of the Far East arc
  • Added Team Confidence subs for episodes 15-17
  • Added dual audio batch for Wizard of the Far East arc separately
  • Updated the dual audio zip, they now contain all 23 episodes

An absolutely stunning display of art and sound, like I’ve never seen before. This show can put movies to shame with its production quality.

Ocean’s Eleven but better..

Such a breath of fresh air and brings so many ideas to the table. The modern day baccano+durarara successor with a touch of ocean’s eleven.

Relaxed Kohai

Gas lighting the anime.
