A new original anime series from Production I.G., the famed studio behind Ghost in the Shell and Psycho-Pass, premiered on Netflix last week. It’s called B: The Beginning, and it’s very much in the vein of the aforementioned two works. It chronicles an investigation into a Dexter-esque serial killer of murderers by a special police investigative unit on the fictional island nation of Cremona (best described as the love-child of Malta and Japan). I watched all 12 episodes over the course of the past few days, and I’ll have some (spoiler-filled) thoughts on the series in the comments below.
