Welcome to Anime Review #71. The anime this week is 91 Days
Jul 9, 2016 to Oct 1, 2016
As a child living in the town of Lawless, Angelo Lagusa has witnessed a tragedy: his parents and younger brother have been mercilessly slaughtered by the Vanetti mafia family. Losing everything he holds dear, he leaves both his name and hometown behind, adopting the new identity of Avilio Bruno.
Seven years later, Avilio finally has his chance for revenge when he receives a mysterious letter prompting him to return to Lawless. Obliging, he soon encounters the Vanetti don’s son, Nero, and seeks to befriend him using the skills he has quietly honed for years.
Set during the Prohibition era, 91 Days tells the story of Avilio’s dark, bloodstained path to vengeance, as he slowly ends each of the men involved in the killing of his family.
91 Days is one of those shows where the premise immediately grabs your attention, but leaves you cautiously hoping to yourself “They better not screw this up.”
Well fear not, because 91 Days delivers with a compelling story about crime, deception, and a quest for revenge in a chilling 1920s American setting.
Strong cinematography, atmosphere, and music to hold everything together and deliver hugely.
The story continued to up the ante and get even crazier each week. Towards the end I was repeatedly shouting “ARE YOU FOR REAL??” at my screen at every cliffhanger we were left with, and in the end they gave us a satisfying conclusion.
91 Days is just a damn good show. Plain and simple. Do yourself a favour and watch it.
Seasons & Episodes:
1 Season ~ 12 Episodes
