I don't trust anime with Tokyo in their title, but the trailer looks cool AND it's Cloverworks. I'll check it out.

I thought these childhood friends would be in their teens but after watching this trailer they actually look like they're some police officers in their mid/late twenties.

It looks good. And obviously the OP sounds amazing.

Decent style to it, but a pretty poor song. Could work.
