During Prohibition, the law held no power and the mafia ruled the town. The story takes place in Lawless, a town thriving on black market sales of illicitly brewed liquor. One day, Avilio receives a letter from a mysterious sender, prompting him to return to Lawless for revenge. He then infiltrates the Vanetti family, the ones responsible for his family's murder, and sets about befriending the don's son, Nero, to set his vengeance in motion. Killing brings more killing, and revenge spawns more revenge. How will the 91-day story of these men guided by a tragic fate end?
91 Days is a revenge story about Angela Lagusa, a man who had his family killed by the Vanetti Family when he was a child. After receiving a letter telling him exactly who did the murders, Lagusa assumes the identity of Avilio Bruno to exact his revenge - which takes exactly 91 days. The anime aired in the Summer 2016 season, with 12 episodes (and one recap) in total. 91 Days is both intriguing and interesting. There is no "hero" in this story - nobody has morals. It's just that some people are eviler than others. The show constantly shocks you and makes you uncomfortable with grotesque scenes, but moves the plot along perfectly. The anime follows a straightforward path of Avilio Bruno's revenge story, never straying too far from the main conflict. As it is set in the Prohibition Era of the United States, it is also mostly devoid of anime cliches. The animation and fight scenes are also done really well. From escaping from a burning building to murdering the mafia heads, every scene has fantastic animation. The art style is very bleak, which helps give the show an even darker tone. The soundtrack of the show is also amazing, playing very well with the action scenes. The opening theme, "Signal" by TK, is one of the better openings of the 2016 year of anime, and in my opinion would've been the best opening of the Summer 2016 season if songs like "99" (Mob Psycho 100) and "Paradisius-Paradoxum" were also contenders. The characters of the anime were good, but nothing out of the ordinary. Angela Lagusa is an anti-hero determined to avenge his family, but we've seen that before. Nero and Fango seem mildly interesting, but none of the other characters are explored in depth enough for me to truly say the character development was spectacular. In conclusion, 91 Days is a dark revenge anime that manages to execute the plot perfectly and be devoid of cliches. It also has excellent animation throughout the many fight scenes in the anime. The soundtrack of the anime fits perfectly, and the opening is amazing. The characters are a bit lacking since they are not explored in-depth, but they are still interesting. In conclusion, 91 Days was a great anime. If you enjoy gritty dark revenge stories where there are no heroes, I would recommend this anime to you.
Revenge and Gangster during prohibition time in USA Oh, i just really love the aesthetic of this time period (late 1920ish): gorgeous ! Even if the animation is not 100% my kind, the decor, backgrounds and general atmosphere really conveys the gangster vibe of this period, pleasing to the eye and matching the story No "black and white" revenge drama here ! Yeey !!The main plot is not about discovering that "revenge is not the answer", it goes beyond that. You know how (more or less) it´s going to evolve (i mean you cant wish for a "my little pony" ending) but it still captivated me and is not AS predictable as you may thinkThis anime is more about following a man on his journey I really liked the ending, showing that human relations and emotions are multidimensional On the side note, bit frustrated that it didnt go deeper with the characters to get attached to them. True that it's a 12 episodes anime with A LOT going on, so i get that it can be tricky Also, the first episodes can be a bit difficult to get into. I dont really know why though... Its definetely for a mature audience, like a good gangster movie Anyway, i recomend it, its short and for me the pace was good, I invite you to go watch it :) + The animation of the waves in the end : WOW, beautifull !
Interesting start to say the least. I was caught by the title and promotional poster for this series. With a strange title using numeric values and from watching the first two episodes, one can only assume it's following a format? Will this actually have 91 ep? That I'd be interested in seeing. Especially how they'd separate them via season if considered. Lovely art style (very Baccano), love the setting and am interested in seeing the plot progress. If you're interested in prohibition era, mobsters, guns, smoke, and revenge (with a twist) I'd say give this a watch.
