Plot Summary: “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. Meanwhile, Jean is monitored by gazes, threatening rumors, and… snack time. Jean’s quiet everyday life slowly gets swallowed up into the world’s conspiracies!
First Thoughts: It seems we got ourselves into something low key with this show and it still manages to be engaging and this is possible that it has the best premiere of the season. I know some people are going to call it boring because there’s isn’t much action even though the show establishes it’s been peaceful around recently. Oh, and a little thing in here called WORLD BUILDING!!! and the dialogue between characters have been engaging for the most part along with a good mix of humor and mystery involving around Jean Otus and yeah, he’s a low key character that sparks a lot of intrigue. Did I mention the music in here is excellent? The opening and ending songs are definitely beautiful to listen to and I love the funky vibe it gives it. Yeah, this is a slow burn but definitely a promising slow burn for me that I will definitely keep an eye on this Winter
So yeah, this is definitely a CONTINUE WEEKLY. Action, this isn’t but drama, this is compelling as fuck.
I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and HOORAY FOR SNACK TIME!!!
