So, /a/, tell me; have there been any animes made about hitmen, assassins, or contract killers for hire?
I'm sort of craving something where I can watch a cold, methodical killer go about undetected as he/she offs one person after another, though I doubt such an anime already exists.
>>
There are literally hundreds of animes like this.
>>
Ichi the Killer

granted, what they did animate is horrible, but the manga and the Takashi Miike film are top-notch, and deliciously warped and twisted.

There will be an anime this season

It's about a group of contract killers. This is anime, it's mostly about things that aren't normally possible. Gritty, realistic anime are few and far between.

Are you all illiterate or have you just not watched any of these shows? Either way go make yourselves taller.

There's this manga called "Jesus", about an assassin with the same name.

He hid tonnes heroin in several blackboards in some high school, so he needs to pose as a teacher for a whole year in order to monitor them so no one finds them out and to safely move them when the time is right.

It's as close as you're getting with anything recent, and it's superpowers are quite toned down. Now, if we're allowed to list manga, Freesia would probably be closer to what you're after.

THE TRUTH IS JUST BEYOND THE MARCHING BAND.

That's nothing like what he's asking for AT ALL.

Also, the reason so many people are listing Darker Than Black is because it's one of the very few secret agent anime made, and is a quite good quality series. There are super powers, but for all the difference it makes to most of the combat sequences they're just cooler guns.
