Synopsis

On a sunny July day in the 41st year of the Shinka Era, Jirou Hitoyoshi is tasked with covertly listening in on a secret meeting between a top government scientist and an industrial spy. However, his cover is blown, and the spy reveals himself to be an alien in disguise. Amidst the ensuing chaos, Jirou enlists the aid of cafe waitress and magical girl Kikko Hoshino, one of many "superhumans" who blend into society and secretly protect humanity from extraterrestrial threats. As a member of the government agency known as the Super Population Research Laboratory, Jirou has the dual task of protecting superhumans that defend humanity and disposing of any deemed too dangerous to live. Having proven herself a worthy ally, Kikko is invited to join the agency as its newest recruit.

Fast forward five years: disapproval and distaste for superhumans are now commonplace in Tokyo. From government corruption and conflicting ideas of justice, to the morality of superhuman rights, the relationship between humans and the supernatural minority balances precariously in a world pervaded by whispers of unrest and unease. Under mysterious circumstances, Jirou has betrayed the agency, and is now a fugitive on the run. As he skulks through the rainy back alleys of Shinjuku, he is pursued by the very same superhumans that he himself once recruited.

The project had previously been teased by scriptwriter Shou Aikawa in the Tokusatsu Hiho magazine, published in May 2015, under the tentative title Choujin Gensou. Aikawa indicated that the project would be a superhero story in a setting similar to the American comic book series Watchmen.

Very good show that ties together several different tropes together. Mecha, kaiju, aliens, magic girls, ghosts, etc. These things are so well blended in the world of this anime that it kinda makes sense. However, because it fits in so well that means that the politics of the world are also included. So if you don't like politics or just don't really care for them it may hinder your enjoyment.

Now for the story itself. It is hard to keep up some times because of the amount of flash-forwards and backward. It is kinda like Memento in that sense, but it's used in a way ...

Mixed Feelings
The 2015 seasonal lineup have given rise to several shows surrounding superheroes and their antics. From the well-known juggernauts like One Punch Man, to the more paradoxical ones like Punch Line; superhero stories seem to be on an all time rise, which can be a direct respondent to the recent boom for superhero films surging in the west. With the success of The Avengers, currently one of the highest-grossing movies of all time, and Marvel's ever-expanding cinematic universe, as well as DC Comics, who has also thrown their hats into the ring to follow the trend, this phase isn't expected to die down anytime soon. ...

Concrete revolutio is just the textbook example of a wasted potential.An anime that takes a deep dive into the superhero genre and constantly operates in a morally grey conscience like "The Boys" did, animated by Bones, should be a wet dream for everyone.The take was good and if they had taken care of the storyline properly,it could have been peak fiction rather than being the giant mess it is.

The anime is episodic and hardly you'd relate between the storyline.Although the stories for the episodes are pretty good,but the narrative is kinda disjointed.They did try to merge the previous stories for the grand finale,but that was ...

Concrete Revolutio and the Phantasmagoria of Heroism and Justice

This BONES project directed by Shou Aikawa that initially left viewers dazed and confused has recently come to a thundering conclusion. Behind the barrage of sparkly colors and references to mid 20th-century history and pop culture, what was the point of it all?
