Synopsis

With World War ll right around the corner, intelligence on other countries' social and economic situation has become a valuable asset. As a result, Japan, has established a new spy organization known as the "D Agency" to obtain this weapon.

Under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Yuuki, eight agents have been assigned to infiltrate and observe some of the most powerful countries, reporting on any developments associated with the war. In order to carry out these dangerous tasks, these men have trained their bodies to survive in extreme conditions and studied numerous fields such as communications and languages. However, their greatest strength lies in their ability to manipulate people in order to obtain the information necessary to give their nation the upper hand.

Cool gadgets.. Fine women.. Exotic locations.. Fast cars.. Espionage.. Epic Adventures.

This idealized depiction of the spy lifestyle seems to be an in-house staple in Tinseltown, with big IPs like James Bond and the Mission Impossible franchise selling this image to rake in a cool profit with each new installment. While the actual lifestyle might not be any more glamorous than what's presented in "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" or "Munich(2005)," it's still fun to see these lavish illustrations play out. The truth of the matter is that most spy work revolves around arduous, long-term cover jobs, methodical information gathering, counterintelligence, espionage and yes, occasional physical read more

Joker Game is certainly breath of fresh air but it is not a must see. It is one of those animes where every now and then you start thinking: 'Hey, this stuff is really cool” only to be hammered in the face a frame later on as you progress with the show.

Set in 1937 when the beginnings of World War II are starting to brew. The story follows the exploits of a small special spy organization called “D-Agency.” It started with the (supposed) main character who a new recruit of D-Agency without any special training got tricked by his spy-mates with something called “Joker Game”. read more

I actually almost skipped this title for a few reasons. One it aired on Tuesday, a day where only two titles were airing, two I got it mixed up with another title airing this season with the word "joker" in it. Now when I first started Joker Game I honestly didn't expect much from it. It wasn't until later episodes that it really started to take off and I started to enjoy it immensely.'

Story 8.5/10

Really interesting plot and story going on for each episode. In my opinion I think that the greatest thing about the story is that it remains, no matter what the episode read more

Joker Game. Seeing that title already has my interest when examining the words of it on the surface. Joker implies that there will be tricksters in the series while game has a broad meaning of contesting between individuals. Yet, this show isn’t about a game. It’s about spies during a tense period of time when the world is at war. If you’re a fan of crime thriller, detective stories, and political conflicts in society, then this show will be a wild ride for you.

Starting off, the series is based on the novel of the same name. Prior to the anime adaptation, it had already received read more
