Synopsis

Daisuke Kanbe, a man of extraordinary wealth, is assigned to the Modern Crime Prevention Headquarters as a detective. It is there that he gets partnered with Haru Katou, a humane detective who values justice above all. The two are polar opposites, and their morals clash time and time again. Haru despises Daisuke for using monetary wealth to solve cases, as he believes that money isn't everything. The two will have to combine their efforts, however, to solve the mysteries that are coming their way.

This anime had so much potential from first episodes. The whole idea of a millionaire detective pairing up with a detective, who doesn't like justice being made through money was really fresh to me, but unfortunately the story was rushed and nothing interesting came at the end. I was expecting more character development and engaging fight scenes, but they also were rushed, 11 episodes were clearly not enough to present an interesting plot to the viewers, because 2 or 3 episodes were filler type and the rest didn't succeed in telling the main story right.
There were things that I liked - like the opening read more

In the beginning, Balance Unlimited presented itself with a unique plot and cast of characters that don't fit the mold of standard investigators. With those two combined, it should've created a fantastic show. And it did, for the most part. Sadly, there's a lot that I found to be underutilized with some wasted potential.

Story (6/10)
The story I found to be entertaining in the beginning but before things started to get serious with Daisuke's story, the cases were somewhat episodic while following a linear storyline that would be presented later on. When the story suddenly shifts, it makes the first couple of episodes feel a bit read more

Just came off finishing this series and DAMN IT WAS GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Honestly this series was such a unique experience to watch and I loved it from start to finish. The series starts off episodic with the MCs solving individual crimes to help smooth us into the story then it gets to the main plotline later on. The immediet appeal is Daisuke and the whole theme of Balance Unlimited. I never get sick of seeing him throw around money to solve his problems with that smug smile that makes it hard to hate the guy.

Matter of fact Daisuke is now one of my top 3 favourite read more

"(The love of) money is the root of all evil. So I came, I saw, I sponsored."
Balance: UNLIMITED, proudly sponsored by the Kambe Conglomerate.

Another series that was unfortunately delayed by COVID, but gained its foothold back into the Summer season, and I'd have to say that for a police/detective mystery show of a novel like this, it was good overall, but somehow faltered along the way for the precedence of speculations as far as Fujoshi fandom between the 2 central characters. Don't quote me on this, it's just my gut feeling on this show, but this has to be just said out loud: fanservice: read more
