The kingdom of Dowa, which is subdivided into 13 states, is celebrating its monarch’s 99th birthday. These 13 states have many agencies that are controlled by the giant organization known as ACCA. Within ACCA, Jean Otus is the second-in-command of the inspection agency. His agency has ten people placed in each of the 13 states, with a central office in the capital city. They keep track of all the activities of ACCA across the kingdom, and keep data on each state’s ACCA office flowing toward the central office. Jean also often has business trips from the capital to the other districts to check on the situation and personnel there.
ACCA took me by surprise in a way few anime did. It certainly pulls you in. At first it’s quite unclear what’s really happening- especially for me since I started watching without checking the summary- and then it gets good, really good.
From the outside, it just looks like a lot of character being cool, with their vague conversations. It always feels as if they are alluding to something while they are showing something else. A style that really works in a series like this.
Episode three is where it gets really good, when new faces are revealed and expected but exciting twists are introduced.
The most important question here is- Is Jean Otus a conspirator to a coup d’eat or not? And the best part, just like the characters, we don’t know the truth either. If this series continues at the pace it is going, and manages to keep it’s exciting approach, it can become a hit, a really famous hit.
