Great Pretender (2020) – First Impressions

Episodes watched: 3/23

First, can we talk about how pretty this anime is?

Episode 1

Episode 2

I don’t know of many anime that have such vibrant colours! The art alone made me want to continue the show.

Synopsis:

Makoto Edamura is a Japanese con man who is tricked into going to Los Angelos by a man named Laurent Thierry. There, he gets caught in an elaborate scam and needs to find a way to survive from the target, a mafia boss, and the FBI.

Thoughts:

As I mentioned earlier, I was deeply impressed by the art. It is by Wit Studio (Attack on Titan, After the Rain) which explains it. I thought the first two episodes were interesting but weren’t enough to “hook” me in. Things really picked up by the end of episode 3. I just finished episode 3 and am wondering what will happen next. If you’re looking for something to watch, I recommend checking out this series!

  1. I’m really interested in it and I started the first episodes. But unfortunately, they don’t have english closed captions, only english subtitles for the parts that are not in English. That’s a bummer because I have some difficulty hearing some things :/
