So this was pretty much a disappointment all around. The Daughter of Twenty Faces started off really promising, featuring Twenty Faces, master thief and all-around classy guy, and Mikamo Chizuko, rich heiress and one smart cookie. The two meet for some reason and Twenty Faces takes Chiko along, educating her in the art of conning people and being awesome. Then they and the rest of Twenty Faces’ crew go off on various escapades and shenanigans, stealing priceless treasures.
So what’s wrong? Well, the fact that what I’ve described makes up too little of the entire show. At a very early point, Chiko returns to her mundane life and eventually starts fighting cyborgs and mutants and supersoldiers. I am serious. This actually happens. This is why I am disappointed. It turns out the show has nothing to do with high thievery and more to do with 1920′s science fiction. Oh well.
Also Live-eviL is a terrible subbing group. People offering services for free need to learn that “but I’m doing it for free!” is not an excuse that absolves you of your responsibility to deliver whatever you’ve promised.
