Two new members of Japan's Narcotics Control Department are tasked with dismantling the criminal network that supplies the deadly drug called Funny Angel (FA). While Haru Kurabayashi infiltrates the mafia branch that commercializes this drug, his partner Kai Etou starts working in a suspicious greenhouse that may harbor the FA production. As both agents grow closer to their objective, they are confronted with difficult choices that threaten to jeopardize the cover of each other.

Despite seeming a bit like your average police/investigation anime, it's actually pretty interesting.

The interactions between some of the characters are somewhat thought provoking and you end up questioning just how much trust they should put in each other. Since it's only a 2 episode OVA series, it lacks some character development but the characters do have an overall personality.

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

Basically, the story is just kind of bland but probably the only thing that tried to hold this anime together.

Being an 'old' anime, I didn't expect much for ...
