This week for Anime Sunday I’m covering another series from the Winter 2017 season. It’s my ACCA Episode 01 Impressions!

Plot Synopsis:┬áThe kingdom of Dowa is subdivided into 13 states, each one granted their own autonomy. These 13 states have many agencies that are controlled by the giant civilian organization known as ACCA. Jean Otus is the second-in-command of the ACCA inspection agency. 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. One of Jean’s jobs is having business trips from the capital to the other districts to check on the situation and personnel there.

Plot: The plot is pretty good, I frankly wasn’t expecting it to be quite as good as it was. There isn’t any action, it’s all about politics and it was very interesting, especially given the current US president’s very obvious corrupt behavior.

Characters: Jean is a great main character, he plays by the book and is always calm and centered on performing his job. The rest of the cast was quite good too, but my favorite side character was Lilium one of the five highest ranked people in the country. He was very funny.

Art: The art is very stylized, but despite that it was very good. It’s not ufotable quality work, but I enjoyed the hell out of it.

Music: Very fitting for the series.

Overall: This is definitely a must watch series for politically minded people, if only because it’s very interesting to watch.

For those who like: Political Intrigue, Drama, Mystery, Great Plot, Fantastic Cast of Characters, Excellent Artwork, Awesome Music.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
