Shimono Hiro and Tsuda together again as MCs like in ACCA omg. This is so exciting plus a megane elf voiced by Tatsun. Really hyped to see the great Chrono-sensei chara designing for anime. PV gives me Hakata Ramen vibes.

Looks slick and stylish, like Cowboy Bebop combined with Blood Blockade Battlefront.

The jazzy score is nice.

This has my interest.

Did someone say Nanae Chrono? *kicks the door in*

A crisp police series would be welcome. Let's hope for some fun.

Badass MC? Check
Smart megane kun? Check
Ruthless/badass female main? Check
Loli? Ugh check

Looks like it'll be okay to me though. It kinda reminds me of Psycho Pass

This is giving me Kekkai Sensen vibes especially the characters and the premise. The PV looks really promising and has my attention already (only gripe was the main lead design). Can't say much about the staff working on this show but really hoping this will be a 2-cour show..
