Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~ Ep.1

Shadowy organizations, check. Two assassins, check. Vague religious symbolism complete with shitty Gregorian chanting, check. Ali Project ED, check. Banging viewers over the head with the puppet metaphor, fucking check.

No~ we’re not watching~ anymore episodes~ This show~ was so generic~ ~~~I didn’t feel like taking screenshots~~~
