91 Days Review — C-

91_days_review_2

Mafia families kill each other to make the world a better place.

This show was okay. Good setting, lots of crazy people and backstabbing, excellent ending.

The main problem is that it wasn’t Baccano. Every time I’d watch this, my main thought would be, “This looks like Baccano! I wish I was watching Baccano now instead. Now that was a great show!”

And it doesn’t compare to Baccano at any level. But really, what does? So this comparison may be a bit unfair.

Aside from that, the main problem, at least for me, is that it doesn’t lead you to invest in the characters. I never cared about Avilio. Or about the people he killed. The only one who sort of worked was Avilio’s one friend.

  • Storytelling – C – Couldn’t grab much interest.
  • Voice – F – Not Baccano.
  • Characters – D – Didn’t care about anybody.
  • Attention Grab – C – I did finish it.
  • Production – C – Seemed like there were some shabby spots.
  • Overall – C-

Recommendations – Baccano

  1. Surprisingly sentimental reasoning you got there for rating the series so low. Very interesting.

    Baccano though is something I’ve been wanting to watch for a while now, and I hope to do so over this 2 week break of mine I got from school.

    1. His reviews aren’t meant to be in-depth. And second, he did have a show-related complaint about the series (the characters; I personally thought they were the strongest aspect, but I respect his opinion on the manner (because the dude has earned my respect)).

      If anything, getting mad at this review for dumb reasons is sort of a fanboy tactic in it of itself. Shocking.

  2. this was pretty different from baccano. besides for the time period, and the mafia theme – that in baccano included blood rituals and various weird traditions and here was much more mundane, and prevalent- this had almost nothing to do with it.
    Still, sure, it was solid but not exceptional. That’s about it.
    If you didn’t like the charaters, it must have been particularly boring, though. I don’t know if I’d have watched it until the end if I didn’t manage to care about anybody. Not nearly enough weirdness to suppel to boring characters.
