In the year 1711, a group of alchemists are granted an elixir of immortality, with the stipulation that they must kill each other until there can be only one. The now-immortal group unanimously decides it wasn't worth it and destroy the elixir; but one of them, Slizard Quates, starts to kill off his fellow immortals. To reduce the risk of Quates tracking them all down, the group separates and goes their separate ways. Neither of them crosses paths again till 1930, Manhattan, when Quates manages to create a new elixir of immortality. However, he loses it and it ends up going around town, taken to be a bottle of alcohol and unknowingly drunk by many residents. The drinkers of this new elixir include Isaac and Miria, an eccentric pair of thieves; the Gandor brothers, a Mafia family; and their associates in the Camorra, the Martillos (who employ some of the original immortals). Now, not only are a new group of immortals created, but the simmering criminal underworld is about to explode. Written by

Ryôgo Narita did not create a detailed storyline, but instead focused on the characters and how they would interact and impact on the original plot/storylines. Although he allowed the characters to "move how they want", he found it troublesome since some characters were hard to move along with the plot and other characters "moved too much, leaving the plot in ruins."

Its a Great watch for such a short series having only 16 episodes. Has its share of suspense,action and laughter
The first two episodes were a task to watch as you didn't know whats happening with the overload of characters,the many time jumps and the confusing story.
By the time the third episode ended, i was hooked. The sheer brilliance of the story line became clear. You will fall in love with the characters who are all unique. This animation is unique in having no central character. Each have there own story to tell and all of them are intriguing.
Each episode leaves you with wanting to know what will happen next.The music is also great.
Sad it ended so soon, do want to have more of these guys
