Mikura, Kurokawa, and Harada are the 3 members of the Danger Service Agency (DSA). Mikura is the brawns of the group, Harada is the brains, and Kurokawa is just a bitter ex-cop that likes to think he's in charge. They'll take on any job as long as it involves lots of danger and, of course, money. If you want to live long enough to eat dinner, you better not cross them. Their biggest case, however, could prove to be finding out why someone wants Kurokawa assassinated.

Mezzo rocks. Sure, the animation is nothing new. Sure, the characters are a little bit fanboyish, a little bit stereotypical. But as with so many other anime, the whole is much more than the simple sum of its parts. Even though it is somewhat middle-of-the-road, it still does it to perfection. I found myself wanting much, much more when I finished the final (13th) episode. This seemed, to me, like a series that was in a groove that could have ran for 30 episodes, or 60! Unfortunately it did not, but if you like a fiesty female heroine that kicks ass without dishing out man-hating ...

Mixed Feelings
Mezzo DSA is a 13-episode series produced by studio Arms, that had as a starting point the Mezzo Forte OVA. If you haven’t seen the OVA, it’s pretty awesome, go check it out. The series, however, is pretty mediocre. If you came to the series having your expectations hyped up by the OVA, it might lead you to a strong disappointment.

Story and Characters

The plot of the series follows a mostly episodic format, with two specific on-going “plots” along. The on-going plotlines we’ll discuss later, but for now, let’s talk about the episodic format.

The strength of good episodic series, like Bebop or Samurai Champloo, consists ...

Mezzo DSA is another great example of an anime that is long for no apparent reason. I know that it's only 13 episodes long and that is about 5 hours in total run time, but it makes 52 episodes of DBZ feel short. Now that's pretty scary when you think about it. The series is very long on filler and it would have made a much better 3 - 6 episode OVA, and that's slightly pushing it. This series is a direct sequel to the 2 episode OVA Mezzo Forte; and I'm still scratching my head as to what made it necessary to give Mezzo ...
