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? (Source: Crunchyroll)
91 days is one of the most refreshing anime of summer 2016. I really enjoy mafia anime and I miss watching none fan service anime. The story was very straight forward about a boy seeking revenge. However, the circumstance of his revenge isn’t very straight forward. The anime was very enjoyable. The action was real. The environment and the era of where everything took place were interesting. Watching 91 days gave me the same feels that I got watching Romeo’s blue sky when I was little. I really needed that. The only downside about the anime was the ending even though I actually enjoyed it.
