    Surprisingly very entertaining and makes you want to keep watching it helps the op and music is great.
    Not bad curious how it can develop to something better and richer though at this point it's just a decent crime show

    im on episode 7. its good enough to make you keep watching and the setting and story set it apart from other anime. Still interesting to see how accurate it is in its depiction of american culture society.

    This anime was fucked up.

    In 2 months I guess Ill make a post spoiling it cause im not using spoiler tags (lazy). I'd pretty much give this an 8/10.

    JD salinger story is pretty weird? Maybe on the borderline of BADLY written? And Im not sure what the connection was wholey? I get the obvious reference but im not sure the relevance it has to the overARCHING story.

    Good show.

    @TonyTony

    Maybe the title of the show will resonate more towards the end, around episode 22-24, but for now yeah the only similarity between the 2 is the PTSD angle.

    As much as a big mouth Yet Lung has, gotta appreciate what he did there on episode 22. Goddammit Eiji. 2 more episodes to go. Been a nice war.

    Goddammit, the last episode was titled "The Catcher in the Rye". Holden didn't kill himself, now did he?


    However, the ending felt sublime to me, even though it was tragic. Rip Leopard.
