HASHTAGS: #91days, #TV91Days
Fango likes his booze sharp!
Ungrateful ep 8!
“I said lets watch 91 Days!”
I forget to make screenshots because I care about about being absorbed into what I’m watching.
I am grateful. I don’t think I ever appreciated a show in so long; I put Gundam Thunderbolt aside because it’s based on a long-time series and its an OVA (91 Days is original). Anime-wise, it was probably Ronja The Bandit Girl, based on a novel. Also, Sidonia in the sci-fi realm.
Too bad, maybe due to its early morning airing, 91 Days doesn’t receive much credit. How to explain this? To get someone to watch and enjoy it? It’s not the death, the blood and the gore, the music, and the American backdrop, but composition of characters and perhaps it is the daring callback to American crime drama. Taking a backseat from “Japanese anime”, and there’s visual tension.
It is simple and hardboiled, the latter causing complexity and raising questions. Most of all, it is human as well. Nero takes a trip to the country and you wonder how it works when he’s sitting jovially next to this adversary, his nemesis.
Episode 7.5 was a recap, but I think episode 1, 2, and 7 can cover everything, from Avilio’s goal to the bad blood within the feud.
