I started watching this for the sole reason that Sugita Tomokazu was in it. I had no expectations, and had never even heard of the title. My first impression was "oh, this is just going to be a cheap rip-off of Death Note where they're going to try to shove as much mediocre bs into 1 hour as possible." However, I found myself inexplicably wanting more after it had finished (for two reasons, mostly good) I haven't watched Death Note in a while, but as someone who truly loved the anime/manga and is revolted by the idea of a cheap imitation, I can reasonably say read more

I Just finished watching this anime and felt an urge to share my piece of opinion on it.

Here's the deal: I am in a love and hate relationship with the series.
The story was intriguing enough to grab my attention and continue watching till the end however there are just too many unanswered questions left by the time it ends.
For me, as for someone who has not read the manga beforehand there were just too many unanswered questions left there. So many that I am heading to read the manga right away.

I understand this is not a proper review. Heck it's not a review at read more

I expected much more with Switch and honestly, I was extremely disappointed. It's the cheesiest, most boring, overdramatic animes I have ever seen.

Story Rating: 5
The story is just your basic police story. Just a bunch of cops trying to stop some kind of drug and weapon possession. Basically, they did something bad. You can have no clue on what these guys did to get in trouble with authorities and you'll follow it easily. Basically, the story is just kind of bland but probably the only thing that tried to hold this anime together.

Art Rating: 4
Being an 'old' anime, I didn't expect much for read more

I never had heard of Switch before until I randomly stumbled upon it. From what I saw the art looked fairly well done, and both episodes were only thirty minutes, so I was intrigued to see what it was about. And overall I wasn't too disappointed by the hour long OVA.

Story (8/10): the plot of the show reminded me of a James Bond movie, which was the main reason I decided to keep watching. It's centered around a police narcotics division trying to bust a group selling the notorious drug Funny Angel, or FA. It's thrilling, has a sense of suspense and causes you read more
