Average Rating

Mafia is rife in America where assassinations are a regular occurrence on the streets. Inferno, a mysterious company, is behind most of these dealings through the use of their near-invincible human weapon, "Phantom." One day, a Japanese tourist accidentally witnesses Phantom's latest murder. Desperate to escape, the tourist hides in a secluded building. However, Phantom, revealed to be a young woman named Ein, and the leader of Inferno "Scythe Master" captures the tourist and brainwashes him. Given the name "Zwei," this once peaceful tourist is now a puppet of Inferno with no memories. Drawn into a world of lies, deceit, and violence, Zwei must fight to survive, hopefully to one day regain his memories and escape from this world where he is constantly on the brink of death.

Surprisingly enjoyable thriller about brainwashed assasins. Has some rocky parts in the middle but picks up pace towards the ending.


Really good Thriller


There are a lot of little things that I think this show does right. There a lot of assassin stories out there, but this one is my favorite.


Never thought serial killers would be that interesting.


fire action, fire shooting, gr8 spies, gr8 stuff


dramatic yet enjoyable thriller. it had me on the edge of my seat for the beginning and end. the middle…. not as much


Amnesia creates dull characters. It lacks emotional depth, and completely falls apart as it progresses before its horrendous conclusion.
