Day 26: “Best Anime Fight”
I’ve seen thousands of anime fights, yet there is one that still sticks with me. The fight between Doug and Nico is a definite favorite of mine.
I was not a huge fan of Gangsta when I first started watching it, but then it grew on me. I loved watching Nico’s backstory and all of the fights he would get into. It is safe to assume that Nico is my favorite character from the anime. The fight scenes were all pretty interesting, but the one between Nico and Doug is a personal favorite of mine. It was intense to watch the two. I expected Nico to win all of the fights that he got involved in easily, so it was really a shock that he was struggling to take on Doug. On a side note, I am still amazed that Nico was able to fake his dog tag’s rank so well.
Synopsis: Nicholas Brown and Worick Arcangelo, known in the city of Ergastalum as the “Handymen,” are mercenaries for hire who take on jobs no one else can handle. Contracted by powerful mob syndicates and police alike, the Handymen have to be ready and willing for anything. After completing the order of killing a local pimp, the Handymen add Alex Benedetto—a prostitute also designated for elimination—to their ranks to protect her from forces that want her gone from the decrepit hellhole of a city she has come to call home. However, this criminal’s paradise is undergoing a profound period of change that threatens to corrode the delicate balance of power. Ergastalum was once a safe haven for “Twilights,” super-human beings born as the result of a special drug but are now being hunted down by a fierce underground organization. This new threat is rising up to challenge everything the city stands for, and the Handymen will not be able to avoid this coming war.
