If you have interest in espionage and the idea of pre-World War II Japan, then this recommendation is for you.
Nearing the start of the Second World War, intelligence on other countries’ social and economic situation becomes a valuable asset. Resulting in Japan establishing its very first spy organisation known as “D Agency”. Under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Yuuki, eight men are chosen through rigorous tests to join this agency. These men are assigned to infiltrate and observe some of the most powerful countries and report on the activities within their borders associated with the ensuing war. In order to carry out these dangerous tasks, these men have their bodies trained to survive even the most extreme conditions and are educated in various fields such as communications, languages and even native cultures and habits. Their greatest strength however, lies within their ability to manipulate people in order to obtain the information needed to give Japan the upper hand in negotiation and in the war itself.
The story is very episodic and we follow either the Lieutenant Colonel or the members of D Agency as they go about their “business”, so it’s enjoyable even for those who are not binge watchers. The animation style is very easy on the eyes and for those who enjoyed my previous recommendation, it should be a pretty lateral transition.
This anime receives a score of 7.8 out of 10, mainly because it is still currently ongoing and I normally give my last 2 points depending on the ending. It airs on a weekly basis so be sure to check it out at your leisure.
Till the next recommendation.
