My Thoughts:

I give Gangsta. The Complete Series Essentials an A.

This Blu-Ray collection is everything you’d want it to be and more. The show itself is a gem when it comes to gritty action dramas that follow two underground Handymen, Nicholas and Worick, who have a knack for accepting any job from both sides of the law but when something starts going on behind the scenes in the city only they could get the job done. Everything from the animation to the English dub is fantastic.

The show itself has a fantastic soundtrack, the visualization is notably above average compared to others, and the show has a very unique tone that so many try to accomplish and fail at that it makes it just that more impressive and magical the more you watch. If you enjoyed Samurai Champloo then I could not recommend this to you enough.

The Funimation Blu-Ray Essentials comes with more special features than you thought you’d get and for the price this collection is a no brainer.

You can purchase Gangsta. The Complete Series Essentials on Funimations official site.
