An adaptation of a Nitroplus visual novel of the same name, Phantom is a show that had all the necessary ingredients to be good: original material by Gen Urubuchi, Yousuke Kuroda at the helm, and a potentially compelling story about identity, the loss thereof and rediscovering one’s humanity. But alas, it was not to be.
With Vorgelia returning from a brief break and special guest Yellow Redfield bringing his knowledge of the visual novel to the table, can Warui Deshou survive another round of a terrible anime? Will Shadon ever pick a good show to watch? Will the name Scythe Master ever not cause uncontrollable laughter? Find out in Part One of Warui Deshou’s discussion of Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom!
