    Weiss Kreuz, anybody?

    I discovered this anime just a few days ago and wondered why I never heard about it. The basic story, for those who may not know, is: Four young men whose cover is that of florists are members of a secret organization known as Weiss. Weiss employs assassins (such as these four) to fight the corrupt who would escape justice if pursued by ordinary legal means. I really enjoyed this and wanted to hear feedback from anyone else who may have seen this.

    Actually it is kinda like a sequel to Knight Hunters. It is the next group up to bat (so to say) because they let the older ones go. Otherwise it's a good show in my opinion.

    Weiss Kreuz and Knight Hunters are the same thing; Knight Hunters is the American release name. It does have a sequel though, Weiss Kruez Gluhen.

    I really got into the soap-opera style drama and violent battles of Weiss Kreuz. The animation could have been better though.

    I don't know about it being on TV, but you can get both Weiss Kruez and Weiss Kreuz Gluhen (under Knight Hunters and Knight Hunters: Eternity) on Amazon. Both have box sets, which is a much better (and cheaper) option than buying them as individual discs.

    From Weiss Kreuz - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Weiß Kreuz OVA: Verbrechen & Strafe
    The second Weiß series, "Verbrechen & Strafe" (crime & punishment), is a two-episode OVA that takes place a short time after the end of the anime, and before the events detailed in the last set of Drama CDs. In hiding, Aya, Ken, Yoji and Omi work out of a mobile home, using their flower-selling business as a cover. Their location is never specified, but it is possibly in the area of Yokota Air Base or Camp Zama, which are both American military bases near Tokyo. Their first mission involves a target by the name of Col. Nichol who evidently has his own enemies in a later target for Weiss and a young man named Akira.

    The OVA is notable because of the darker, bloodier storyline and the higher quality of animation compared to the first series.
    This OVA's only about half an hour long, and I don't think it has a US release.
