During Prohibition, the law held no power and the mafia ruled the town.
The story takes place in Lawless, a town thriving on black market sales of illicitly brewed liquor. Avilio returns to Lawless after some time away, following the murder of his family in a mafia dispute there.
One day, Avilio receives a letter from a mysterious sender, prompting him to return to Lawless for revenge. He then infiltrates the Vanetti family, the ones responsible for his family’s murder, and sets about befriending the don’s son, Nero, to set his vengeance in motion.
Killing brings more killing, and revenge spawns more revenge. How will the 91-day story of these men guided by a tragic fate end? – My Anime List
Based on 7 review scores:
You should watch this show (at least the first episode) if you are looking for good music, a unique setting, a mature tone, and an interesting plot revolving around characters with room to grow.
If you are a self acclaimed anime or movie expert, you can criticize this show with your pretentious words however you want. I see the effort that the staff has put in both story telling, art and heart. This show is worth watching this summer.
If you’re interested in prohibition era, mobsters, guns, smoke, and revenge (with a twist) I’d say give this a watch.
Taku Kishimoto’s first original is here! It feels like a more subtle take on Baccano!’s setting than the stylistic chaos that is Narita’s trademark, complete with the studio that formed from the people who brought Baccano! to the animated format in the first place. It’s an intriguing time and place to set a story, especially since it’s so rarely used for anime, and with the focus appearing to be on a more serious mood and eventually the inner workings of its characters, there’s hope for Kishimoto’s finest skills to be put to use to make it something truly worthwhile. Until then, it’s at least appreciated that it looks a bit better than the studio’s first attempts with Durarara!!’s sequels.
The character art for 91 Days ranges from average to good. What really blew me away is the backgrounds and scenery. Set against the backdrop of a Prohibition-era, mafia-run town, the atmosphere is often dark and grimy, occasionally giving away to large-scale landscape shots which are stunningly reminiscent of European paintings. Alongside a timely, orchestrated soundtrack, the result is a near-perfect atmosphere.

Seriously, just give it a try. Prove that you’re not a weeb 12-year old that only watches anime to fap to some flashing panties. ///you can hear a bunch of triggered weebs crying out in the distance, clutching their anime figurines to their chest, repeatable hitting the report button.
