Enforcer Teppei Sugou, former ace pilot of the National Defence Army's 15th Integrated Task Force, is visited by a scout from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and invited to rejoin the military. While considering the offer, he recalls his last months of service.

His last mission, Operation Foot Stamp, had been a highly classified military strike against the Southeast Asian Union. The operation quickly went south for the ground forces, and Sugou's First Guardian drone was ordered in as air support to drop emergency supplies for the ground units and then return to base. Following orders against his own judgement, Sugou abandoned his comrades on the field.

Many lives were lost during the operation, including Itsuki Ootomo, Sugou's commanding officer. However, three months later, following a massacre at the Ministry of Defence, Otomo was spotted at the scene on camera. Now a suspect in an act of terrorism, Sugou cooperates with Enforcer Tomomi Masaoka and Criminal Investigation Department's Division 01 as they hunt his former mentor down.

SS Case 2 is perhaps the most trivial entry of the film trilogy, but it pulls through because it's a trip back in time to the better days in season 1. But as for why the film is trivial - Teppei has always been and feels like a background character. It's his story and the resolution has to do with him, but he doesn't feel like the MC like Akane, Ginoza, Mika, or Kogami do.

But as for why the film works? Division 1 is back. Kogami, Ginoza, and Kagari's teamwork is a delight to see, especially Kagari who we thought was never to be seen ...

Mixed Feelings
TL;DR - What a letdown...
This movie focuses on an enforcer named Teppei Sugou, who used to be a soldier, telling the story how he became an enforcer. The entire movie (except for the first five minutes and last two minutes) is a flashback a few years back, which, in my opinion, is a bad thing by itself because it feels like the first minutes of the movie are a spoiler of the entire thing.
Not that the actual story is really noteworthy - An attack on the ministry of defense building resulting in multiple casualties is carried out using a drone who appears to be operated ...

This is where I drop the series.

For me (as well as many others) the first season was an announcement for a great franchise. It was extremely promising - great characters, an original and fascinating world, decent art and sound with some pretty good action and animation. The writer wasn't afraid to kill-off a likable character, erasing them from the main cast, in order to progress the story, convey a message, develop a different character, etc..

But after the first season the writer has changed, and with that change a slow, agonizing death of a franchise has begun.

Even if you didn't know that change has occurred, you ...
