Anime News Network: In its fourth episode, Gangsta. addresses many of my hopes for its narrative so far. We learn a bit about Worick and Nic's past. Alex has also displayed character beyond “passive voyeur.” The story's pacing has been upped, and it feels like there's more happening per episode than before. The production issues, however, have only been magnified. The colors are even more washed out, the animation has reached “QUALITY” levels, and the score stills seems like an eternally looping three-second Casio beat. I want to like you more, Gangsta., but presentation counts.
