  • Fratello, the relationship of partners in the Orginizaton of Social welfares, where young girls are turned into mechanical killing machines, child assasins who follow ordeers from their "big brother". Yet troubles arise as the girls have emotions for theimoreless

    I love this show, the plot is thrilling and adventourus, and the relationships between the fratello are at times sad to watch, I mean the girls are machines after all, but they still have emotions. The assasination seens are great, not missing a beat, every scene is filled with emotion, and I love the fact that it's placed in Italy for a change in stead of Japan, it's very refreshing.
