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.

Magatsu Wahrheit: Zuerst, translated: Ominous Truth: the First, based on the mobile game of the same name (but without the Zuerst).

Mixed Feelings
To put this out front, I just finished this series after mostly watching it week-to-week and it largely left me with a feeling of emptiness. The few reviews that I tend to write are pretty well planned out if nothing else, but this time around I'm going to just write this as I go to use it as a way to work through my feelings on what I just watched. So, yeah.... To that end, I'll still keep my usual category breakout format and get right into it:

Having read all the 8's, 9's and such I was spurred into action by my sense of justice...and to let readers see a different opinion other than the fanatics of the series.

Firstly if you looking for a good action filled anime, this ain't it. Sorry sunshine but this one is tons of dialogue and politics. But hey, believe it or not, that's not the worst part of this horrible adaptation.

See, they need to leave these no name game adaptations where they belong, nowhere. But I digress, that's just a little rant of mine.

Putting it bluntly so's that I don't bore you to death, ...
