I like mysteries and police series, the first time I saw ACCA promotional video, I got really curious about it. So I decide to give it a lot, to see what this new series has to offer.
Genre: Police, Drama, Fantasy, Seinen
Aired Date: Tuesday
Episode Count: N/A
Rating: R – 17+ (violence & profanity)
The kingdom of Dowa, which is subdivided into 13 states, is celebrating its monarch’s 99th birthday. These 13 states have many agencies that are controlled by the giant organization known as ACCA. Within ACCA, Jean Otus is the second-in-command of the inspection agency. His agency has ten people placed in each of the 13 states, with a central office in the capital city. They keep track of all the activities of ACCA across the kingdom, and keep data on each state’s ACCA office flowing toward the central office. Jean also often has business trips from the capital to the other districts to check on the situation and personnel there.
“ACCA” is a giant unified syndicate residing in a kingdom split into 13 autonomous regions. ACCA was formed back when there was threat of a coup d’etat, and it has continued to protect the peace of civilians for almost one hundred years. Jean Otus, the vice-chairman of the inspections department at ACCA headquarters, is one of the most cunning men in the syndicate’s history with the nickname “Jean the Cigarette Peddler.” Whimsically puffing his cigarettes, he wanders through the 13 districts, checking to see if there is any foul play afoot.
Now that I watch at least to episode of the show, I can say that I’m looking forward what the series will give us.
The first episode mainly serve as presenting most of the characters, without saying much about them, except for Jean Otus. We meet Jean “the Paddler” Otus, the vice-chairman of the inspection department at ACCA headquarters, the first time we see him, his superior announced him the inspection department will be close and the people working in it will be transfer in other department. Thus Jean need to make a last inspection around the kingdom, but when he come back his department is not forced to stop his activities, the real reason this change of mind is still unknown.
I would really like to give a brief summary about the second episode without spoiling anything, but I know how I am and I just can’t do it. The only thing I would tell you is that I was a bit mad I one of the character at the end of the episode…
So far I really enjoyed what I have seen from ACCA and I can’t wait to see the next episode. I really like Jean and the way he is. They gave him a “I don’t give a fuck” calm look and his voice actor Shinomo Hiro make him sound the same. Nothing seems to stress him out.
Do you watch it? What do you think of it so far?
