Active Raid first impression


This anime is about a police force that keeps the city in order by fighting criminal mecha owners with there own specially designed mecha suits.

^_^ In a big change this anime presented its first episode as a tone setter for the rest of the season, this is a big contrast to many anime that like to force you straight into the story from the get go (There is nothing wrong with setting up the plot before activate the story).

You can tell that the people who were chosen for this project knew exactly what to do when presenting an anime of this genre.  I have an odd ability to be able to tell when someone has experience on directing particular types of anime based on what angle they choose to display a scene in and if they can give a show a soul of its own outside of the source martial (looked up the directer after the show and I was right).

Seeing as this is a mecha show I’m super glad that haven’t gone for the overly political angle that quite frankly sends me to sleep in 5 seconds. If I had one complaint it would be that this shows main lead mecha designs  look  way too close to “gatchaman” suits.

*T-o It’s odd when you have both “gatchaman” and “tank police” going though your head at the same time.*

I’m interested to see more purely based the energy this show is extruding.
