Preliminary Spoiler
Dec 29, 2019
I liked the first episode of this show, it had a promise. I expected some kind of serious stuff, maybe like Psycho Pass (especially when I saw OP) or Cop Craft - something realistic (even though a setting is mix of fantasy and modern day), pragmatic and a bit grim. Instead I got a tale for kids that reminds me heavily of bungou stray dogs - in all the wrong ways.
Story and world - lacking. Not much background, not much events, once again some evil dudes doing some evil stuff. I can't really say much here, cause nothing is said, nor do we got ...

Before I get started, I just wanted to say that I don’t understand this underlying hatred or distaste for this anime. In my opinion it was one of the best anime’s I’ve ever watched. The story line and plot were simply amazing and unique as it was something I had never seen before in an anime. The build up to the last episode was simply exquisite as every episode led to me wanting to know more about the characters and the hidden meanings to many of the events going on. Every episode was full of mystery, action and suspense. It was so good that it ...

I would recommend this anime as a 'palate cleanser' anime (by that I simply mean a quick 1-season 12 episode anime to watch while in between 2 really good shows, for example I watch slice of life shows in-between shows such as Demon Slayer and Fire Force).


STORY: 5/10 at best tbh,
pretty slow and generic, I watched it weekly alongside Ahiru no Sora and BNHA S4 so I didn't retain much info between episodes.

Personally I love this style of animation so I thoroughly enjoyed that. It gave me some madhouse anime vibes which I also loved.

With am absolutely ridiculous long title, you'd think that this show is from a LN source, but NOPE, it's an original series, which I'd applaud the production staff under this to take the risk for such "original" (but rehashed in some form) stories that hope to break the bank in the existing landscape of usual tried-and-true anime adaptations, I really do.

At first, I'd thought: "Is this Dance of the Dragons once again? Because it sure feels like it for the majority of the most part." But thank God that the story and the setting itself is fairly linear and easier to understand than that clusterfish ...

Preliminary (6/12 eps)
First, quick disclaimer: I dropped the show after 6 episodes, so maybe it improves afterwards (don´t think so). Oh, and very mild spoilers on some action scenes ahead (no spoilers on the story, though).

Special 7 depicts a Shadowrun-esque world, similar to Copcraft, but one where magic use is very restricted and really powerful. It follows the adventures of an elite police unit that for reasons unknown operates independently from, and it´s despised by the rest of the police force.

It loosely follows the GitS template so we have the usual array of members. We have the MC (or more like audience surrogate), a normal human and ...

The anime isn't anything special in terms of story or characters.
The characters are all very one-note and don't change throughout the entirety of the story, which is always a let down. Character growth and development is wonderful, even if it isn't something major, if there is growth it makes the characters more developed.
Not only that, but the story itself is just mediocre. It's the same bad guy wants to release big bad power. Protagonist group goes to stop bad guy but oh no! Bad guy has old good guy who is now bad because big bad guy made him that way.
The story isn't ...

After watching an important number of Gordon Ramsay's famous show called "Kitchen Nightmares", a few words dug their place in my memory : bland, dreadful, disgusting.

Well Keishichou Tokumubu Tokushu Kyouakuhan Taisakushitsu Dainanaka: Tokunana was bland & blank by its universe, dreadful by its abnormaly long title which I never dared to pronounce and... not disgusting, this one is just a bonus. Contains minor spoilers.

Let's get straight to the point which I disliked the most : the universe and its logic. A modern world where different species such as vampires, "homonculus girl with blonde hair", dwarves and any type of magic users live in harmony. Found ...

Why people hate this so much...? Once again, here I am to come to the rescue of not so loved anime.

Art + Sound:
Let's be real, I have close to zero interest in both in whatever anime. This as it is won't change the rating. I think the animation was a bit rough for the male characters, but that's it.

I don't really have an idea why they chose unnatural beings (vampire, elf, homunculus, and dwarf) to be part of the Speical 7. It is hardly in use. But let's pretend. Sure, the dragons are necessary to the plot.

Seiji Nanatsuki (Rookie) is the high spirited naive character, ...

I'm little dissapoint about the story and character but i enjoy it so much
The story is very good but it give me some little dissapointing moment

The Art i saw some moment that they draw Casually
When i'm watching it i shocked the art line lol
Sound the Op make me want to sing a long with it lol
And Ed is good enough
Character i don't understand at the beginning that why it have to be like this
Well when i watch till The end of this anime and ...

Where to start...
Okay let's start from the Character, the very poor part in the anime, first the character design so awful and tacky especially the villain and the detective who Follow him ( seriously? Is this even a serious design? ), and of course don't forget the design of the hero of the show، in short the character design look like the one who make it just dropped some hair style here and there, and some Scars here and there, and here we have some stupid character design, second thing.. the characters writing so weak and all the characters just Molded characters you can see ...

After watching the show, I thought: "Adding elves, vampires, wizards, dwarves, and dragons won't guarantee an interesting story."

Special 7 is a crime anime seemed to add fantasy elements without actually thinking about how it affects world building and the story telling. Other than the terrorisms, everything else could've been done without the fantasy elements. It was fun at first, until it fell flat at the end. The Special 7 themselves were forgettable characters, and don't get me started with the main lead.

The art is alright, the animation's a bit static but not terrible, and the OST is nothing special.

It's not the worst show that ever ...

I don't intend on writing too much since in depth reviews aren't my forte, I tend to ramble, what I will say first off is that like others I had some hope for this anime; the premise seemed good and episodes 1 & 2 aren't bad. It started losing me at 3, by 5 I was watching episodes in 1.5x speed and after that I was skimming them, only finishing the series 'cus I don't like leaving reviews unless I've seen all the episodes.

What prompted me to realize why it was losing me was the supernatural side of it, something I usually enjoy if nothing ...

Keishichou Tokumubu Tokushu Kyouakuhan Taisakushitsu Dainanaka: Tokunana is an original anime from Anima&Co. I've talked about the one episode special already. It was highly mediocre. Now it's time to look at the full series. Which I'll just call Seven Little Officers, as its actual title is way too long to keep using. 


We open with newbie officer Nanatsuki Seiji getting caught up in a bank robbery. Fortunately for him, the titular Seven Little Officers' unit is on the case. And they're even so impressed with the way he handled himself that they transfer him into their little unit. Which is good because it gives them exactly seven ...

Dropped it after 9 episodes. The story is decent, but after a while, I realized I just didn't care anymore. My biggest complaint is that it's hard to care about the main characters. They try so hard to make the story seem mysterious by having the characters talk around the subjects when they chat, but that leads to the conversations being very inauthentic. So much could be solved by them just speaking directly instead of talking in riddles or avoiding proper response. That gets old after a while but they keep doing it anyway. I found only one of the characters to be actually interesting ...

If it weren't for it being so unoriginal, I might've had a higher opinion of it. I don't know if anyone else has noticed or pointed it out, but this is basically an exact copycat of Double Decker Doug and Kirill...only with elves, dwarves, vampires, etc randomly thrown into the mix. Don't get me wrong, I know Doug & Kirill isn't exactly original either. However, this one's wayyy too similar. From the whole team 7 band of misfits thing, to the rookie cop getting teamed up with the cop who's got a slight chip on his shoulder dynamic, the boss who's quirky and insists on ...
