I absolutely loved this anime. It was so good and quite interesting to say the least. This anime is still quite new and popular. Well at least that’s what I think anyways.
The series revolves around two “Handymen” who take on jobs for both the mob and the police force that no one else can handle. The two, named Worick Arcangelo and Nicolas Brown, work in the town of Ergastulum, which is full of mafia, hoodlums, prostitutes, and dirty cops.
This anime first aired in 2015. I have heard from a reliable source that the company who was doing the anime went bankrupt. So it is hard to say if this anime will be ever be continued again. The studio that did this anime also did a few other animes that I know of, but haven’t seen. There is one that I will never watch and it’s called Samurai Flamenco. I am sorry, but its to similar to The Power Rangers. I am not even joking about this. Again I am sorry, but we all have limits to what we can and can’t watch.
Back to this review. As the plot says it’s based on two guys who are “Handymen” and they do odd jobs that no one else will do. Nicolas or better known as Nic is a “Twilight” a person who has superhuman abilities. The catch is though that he can only gain those powers by taking drugs. In Ergastulum there are more “Twilights” just like our main character Nic, but some people look down upon “Twilights”.
Before some laws were put into place many “Twilights” were treated like garbage and slaves. Some were even mercilessly killed simply, because they were “Twilights”. Also Nic is deaf. What? Yeah he’s actually death, but he can read lips really well. He also learned sign language and Worick was his teacher.
Worick, where ever should I start with him? So he and Nic met when they were very young. At the time he didn’t quite understand what a “Twilight” was. His father had him assigned a bodyguard. That’s when Nic enters the picture. Worick then befriends Nic, but things weren’t always easy. Worick’s father was extremely abusive to him.
One time Nic saw Worick’s father stab Worick in the eye with a cigarette, causing him to lose that eye permanently. Which is why he now wears an eye patch over his one eye. At the age of 13, Worick then became a gigolo and has been one ever since. He also has a special ability known as Hyperthymesia.
On the day his father stabbed him in the eye with the cigarette he had Nic kill his father as an order. Worick had finally broke and he also had the rest of his family killed. As he was Nic’s master. After that he disappeared from there and started living in Ergastulum, but with a different name. Now Worick and Nic are not master and slave, but rather best friends. In the first episode they are contacted by the police who have a job for them. They then take out a group who was causing trouble.
Then that’s when Alex one of other main character’s enters the story. She is a prostitute who was working with the group that the Handymen took out. The police had told them that they could keep anything they wanted. So they asked to keep her, and there was also a rumor that the boss of the group who had been taken out. I guess he kept her drugged so she would work. I found that rather sad. I will now leave things here.
So please go and watch this anime I really enjoyed it and also loved it a lot. I give this anime a high recommendation as it was that good. Also I am sure that you can find this anime just about anywhere. As it is still new well kind of lol. Another thing is that this anime also has a manga which is just as good.
The anime sticks very close to the anime so if you want to know what happens after the anime ends. Well just read the manga and you will get your answers. Until my next blog post keep reading manga, and watching anime. Stay cool guys and girls.
