Gangsta

Confirmed by ANN



Synopsis: The manga revolves around Nick and Worick, two men who take on jobs from both the mafia and the police in the town of Ergastulum, a rotten town filled with mafia, hoodlums, prostitutes, and dirty cops.

Glad to see this is finally getting an anime. I'm hoping MAPPA or Madhouse does it and they get Taku Iwasaki for the music.

I read the first volume and have the second sitting on my to-read pile somewhere. It's a decent enough seinen action series, but it's not my top choice for an adaptation. (C'mon, why can't we have an Until Death Do Us Part anime?)

Premise is unique for a change and the artwork is so as well. I have a feeling that Manglobe is doing this or another project this fall, though whether or not that's a positive thing is up to some people.

This is fresh as hell, I'm looking forward to this.

Volume 1 synopsis from Viz:

Quote:
In the city of Ergastulum, a shady ville filled with made men and petty thieves, whores on the make and cops on the take, there are some deeds too dirty for even its jaded inhabitants to touch. Enter the “Handymen,” Nic and Worick, who take care of the jobs no one else will handle. Until the day when a cop they know on the force requests their help in taking down a new gang muscling in on the territory of a top Mafia family. It seems like business (and mayhem) as usual, but the Handymen are about to find that this job is a lot more than they bargained for.

I looked at that, and my first thought was...

DOGS TV ANIME, WHEN??

Alas, probably never...

It will be interesting how will they adapt this. I feel it never really needs an adaptation though. Maybe it will air the same time as drrr season 2.

This would be awesome. There's hope one day. Given by the standards of this series though, I'm expecting a 1 cour.

Apparently there's also a drama CD coming out, with Suwabe Junichi, Tsuda Kenjirou and Noto Mamiko as the leads. Nice.

I haven't read Gangsta, but the art style is awfully familiar and I could swear I've seen doujinshi by this author before. Her website only lists Gangsta-related and/or pro works so I'm wondering, does anyone know about her amateur works, the fandoms she was active in?

(Also, I'm flipping through the first volume and this really reminds me of Dogs. Waah, why did Dogs only get that crappy anime with a horribly miscast Ishida Akira? )

Can we trust this? Or it will come out to be another mislead?

I checked it after. Still can be Photoshop ).

Just that I can remember at least 2 times they posted the wrong staff. So I'm a bit cautions now

The info about Suwabe, Tsuda and Noto that I wrote before came from the official website.

Of course it's very much possible that the official website was hacked....!!!

Frederica Greenhill? Hell yeah! It's always good to hear some veteran voice actors and actresses in the cast.
