Phantom is…

… a Noir clone? It’s kinda obvious with the assasination scene at the end where they waited for like 2-3 mins after confronting the target before shooting him.

jinyamato says its cool, but I digress. Feels rather generic to me. But then again, nitroplus is writing for the show so it might get better later on. Till then, I think I’m giving this show a miss, at least maybe saving it for a batch marathon.

The KOKIA OP is okay, but not her best. ALI Project ED is kinda generic. Ayahi Takagaki fans will love this series I guess. It has her doing what she does best.

    The underlying visual novel is the best one translated to English that I’ve ever played. I’m definitely hopeful for this. The story is _amazing_ – think a cross between KimiNozo and Noir. (And keep in mind that Phantom of Inferno came first, Noir came later)

    Noir is thus more of a Phantom rip-off than the other way around. XD

    You can basically say that Kiriko is the long lost “semi-automatic handgun using” cousin of Ein. Or that Kiriko is a Ein clone.

    Fact that they showed Cal and Mio says they’re going to get to chapter 3, which the OVA’s failed to do. Looking forward to mall scene. :P
