Too many adult male characters, do they target female audiences? Or this time, they are adapting a more serious novel than usual? Be that as it may, Nakamura-oniisan is already enough to get me extremely interested.

Wait this isn't another fate/ spinoff!?

No, this has nothing to do with Gilgamesh or Uruk.

It seems Bucciarati and Giorno left the mafia to fight the crime more legally as policemen...

Its the same original creator behind Kado so possibly will have full of interesting unique ideas but likely might turn out to be another trainwreck.

-"So the cops knew that internal affairs were setting them up?"
The typical police stories with conspiracies and deceptions, it does not excite me in the least since psycho pass that these "serious" animes have disappointed me.

Tragic director choice. At least we have another Yutaka Yamada show.
