Active Raid

It was pretty hard to watch this episode. I couldn’t keep focussed and I eventually became bored. I just wanted it to be over with. That’s obviously a terrible sign.

Active RaidThe artwork is okay. It’s not amazing and the characters don’t really tend to stick. The mechs look rather uninspired as well.

The story just started off really dull. I am not sure if it was only the first episode, since a second season was already set in stone before the first episode even aired. I might give the second episode another chance or I might not.

I honestly just can’t recommend this based on what I’ve seen so far. It’s not all that interesting and I simply can’t see this become a hit big enough to be worthy of another season.

Plot Summary: Set in a part of Tokyo that has descended into a quagmire, the story follows Unit 8 of the 5th Special Public Security Section’s 3rd Mobile Assault Division — popularly called “The Eighth” — who don powered armor “Willware” exoskeletons to counter the rise in crime. Assistant inspector Asami Kazari is assigned to The Eighth with the task of assessing the unit’s status and reporting it to her superiors. But her true goal is to rehabilitate this sloppy, haphazard, justice-less group.
