I probably shouldn’t have gotten my hopes up.
I don’t know why I was looking forward to this one as much as I was. Probably at least in part because it’s based on a josei manga (the most underserved demographic of the main four), although it’s been over a month since I looked up the premise, so it’s not like I had much to go on. The fact of the matter is, despite being largely inoffensive, this first episode delivered a lackluster experience. It doesn’t seem to know whether it wants to be serious or comedic and so took a swing at both; unfortunately, the main character is too dull (the classic “strong but silent” type) to be funny (aside from maybe her name – Chateau Dankworth) and too inexpert at what she does to be cool. Her male counterpart, Son Ryang-ha, is slightly more compelling, but only because he’s a total psychopath. Oh, and I’m also confused as to whether these guys are meant to be bounty hunters or assassins. My dudes, you do know that bounty hunters are generally supposed to take in their marks alive, right? ‘Cos that’s an awfully high body count you got going on there.
