So dude has something on his palm that resembles to be something of greater power or such bullshit as that. OK, before going into this first impression, it doesn’t help that I see this logo coming before the episode….
And since I’m covered another anime with that logo and how that turning out so far…….yeah……this is Taboo-Tattoo.

Plot Summary: Justice Akazuka (nickname Seigi) is a young man who is good at martial arts. Seigi rescues a homeless old man on the street one day from some thugs, and the man gives Seigi an object that imprints a tattoo on his palm. However, it is not an ordinary tattoo, but a special weapon that gives Seigi supernatural powers such as warping space-time. Seigi then meets a female American agent named Easy, whose duty is to recover the tattoos. Seigi decides to help her and gets wrapped up in a cross-national conspiracy.
First Thoughts: OK, I can see that this show have its good points and its bad points. Let’s begin with the good: the marital arts animation is actually good in its fight sequences and the idea of imprinting a tattoo that gives you supernatural powers does hold up interest in discovering more about this. The bad points……this is a by-the-numbers shonen tale that is disguised as a seinen show from the main character having some arc because he wanted to be stronger than his father, he has a tsundere and loudmouthed big-tittied friend that always looks out for him and I bet in the middle of this, she’ll be in some sort of danger and has an inconsistent tone. High action one minute, the next some silly ass comedy that doesn’t fit at and then back to being serious. It doesn’t help that I find it similar to Akame ga Kill….only it’s not as dumb or edge lord or violently stupid as that.
In other words, I’m keeping this as WATCH WITH CAUTION.
Something about this doesn’t really look like it’s going to improve in the end.
I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and…..I have a Daft Punk tattoo. Does that end I can transform into them? Please…….
