In the technologically and magically advanced Wahrheit Empire, rumors of a returning catastrophe known only as the "light" causes a disturbance amongst the people. Meanwhile, in the capital of the Empire, transporter Innumael Grauer prepares his daily deliveries, struggling to make ends meet for himself and his sister. Leocadio Wöhler, a newly recruited soldier, assists Innumael whilst commuting to work—unknowingly loading a mysterious package containing contraband artillery belonging to a criminal organization.

Innumael is accused of smuggling the package, facing possible execution due to the Empire's strict oversight of weapons in response to the rising disorder. However, unbeknownst to him, the very syndicate that placed him in this unfortunate predicament may save him from this fate, at least temporarily. Elsewhere, Leocadio is assigned his first mission—to apprehend the criminal group known as "Headkeeper," suspected of transporting illegal weaponry.

Magatsu Wahrheit: Zuerst follows these two young men on a journey encompassing the Wahrheit Empire, triggering a chain of events that will not only change their lives but also alter the course of the Empire as they know it.

If there is one way to sum this show as a whole, it is the love-hate relationship of director Naoto Hosoda. Take one look at his hit-or-miss work repertoire of anime production over the years, and I'd guarantee that you either love or hate the shows he's worked on (the more notable ones): Hataraku Maou-sama!, Juuni Taisen, Mirai Nikki, Shuffle!, even Ushinawareta Mirai wo Motomete. And now, this show being another addition onto the reputable director's works, and I can finally understand why.

This show is one of the best this season and my personal favourite. I love the world building, the setting, the character design and the suspenseful moments it delivers. No generic romance or fanservice to interrupt the flow of the story which is really well paced. I never had to check how many minutes are left, it's just so good.

It's urban fantasy with no isekai elements or anything but great dark and engaging themes where you explore BOTH sides of these factions that seems to have understandable motivations as we explore their story further and further. There's good use of political intrigue, similar to ACCA ...

When was the last time we’ve gotten a truly serious heart-pumping, blood-rushing survival anime where the characters are facing a combination of the environment surrounding them as well as opposing humans? And when was the last time that the tension was so high that you sat stock still with bated breath, unable to move because you were that enthralled by what was unfolding before you? One more….. and when was the last time that an anime, having all of this, also included a massive conspiracy that was well thought-out, related entirely to the environment and setting, and had villains operating it that were actually fearsome ...
