Plot Summary: In 1937, before World War II begins in earnest. Lieutenant Colonel Yūki of the Imperial Japanese Army forms the “D Agency,” an army intelligence outfit under his command and tutelage. Army General Staff attaches Lieutenant Sakuma to observe the unit’s performance. D Agency casts a wide net to find agents beyond Japanese military personnel, and Yūki establishes D Agency’s tenets, which go against IJA doctrine: “Don’t kill, don’t get killed, don’t get captured.” With this, Yūki trains a team of operatives who conduct missions against domestic and foreign powers.
First Thoughts: Getting this out of the way……man, that opening song sounds amazing!!!! Definitely one of the best OPs I have heard since the spring season started. The first episode of this had me intrigued about what goes along in this Agency and with Lieutenant Sakuma, who is known as the one soldier who finds most of the spies’ tactics underhanded and despicable although personally you need to be that in order to well……not get caught or die and he might learn that soon enough. The show does look like it is more than just the typical spy action show and is gearing to the thinking man’s type of spy show and from its tense and thrilling moments in there, it can work as that and I think it can be executed right as long as it keeps the show interesting and worth watching and right now, I’m tuned in.
So CONTINUE on and also this is only Tuesday show I’m watching so there.
I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and …… I gotta listen to that opening again!!!
