    Initial Thoughts - Recommended
    I have to say that so far I'm intrigued.

    The show actually makes bureaucratic duties and politics pretty interesting. The main character is quiet and reserved, but he's not afraid to talk when he needs to and is pretty smart if you pay attention. If you are a fan of drama and political-ish shows and anime then you should give this show a shot. It may feel a little slow at first but that's ...

    Refreshingly different
    Episode 1 Review
    In this world of oversaturated highschool battle shonens/romcoms, its nice to have something different. All the characters are adults in jobs and there has been no fanservice so far. Its from madhouse too so it looks and sounds great. The OP is also pretty catchy. Overall I'm excited to see where this goes.

    An Anime for Storytelling
    ACCA turned out to be different than what I was originally expecting, and I'm glad. The art and animation is superb, and the atmosphere this series creates keeps the viewer hooked.

    If you're looking for mindless action, I'd suggest something else.

    If you're looking for a good story, pull up a chair and stay awhile. You won't be disappointed.

    Did ACCA Escape from BBC?
    ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept. is exactly the sort of stylish, smart programming that I associate with the very best of BBC drama--both the storytelling and the lead are reserved yet quietly, intensely engaging. Dowa is a kingdom run more like a corporation, with thirteen autonomous states ruled by a single monarch but actually managed through a civilian-controlled agency with ...

    Political intrigue, deliberately paced
    I enjoy the deliberate pace (and concentration on characters' conversations, actions). The premise is interesting - 13 independent territories united under one monarchy (delicately teetering between collapse/transition). One man is the balance between the multiple bureaucrats and their plots.

    The art is beautiful - simple and clean. As a view, I am not inundated with competing graphics, ...

    Very refreshing feels classic.
    At first the story teased being too generic, then the plot grew and progressed well which formed into a nice ending. Likable characters, beautiful art, and a wonderful score. I would highly recommend this to someone who is looking to break up your normal viewing habits (may be quite slow for the average action buff). All in all fairly solid, well let's say it finally got me to write a review.

    Refreshing, talky anime
    The first few episodes are a little bit on the boring side while the story begins to unfold. However, there is enough intrigue about the characters and the world to keep you from moving on. The beautiful art style also doesn't hurt! You pick up details here and there and questions start forming in your head. You keep watching until you just notice that you haven't taken a break for a few episodes ...

    So whose up for a game of office politics on a nation-state level?
    If you have any doubts, give it an hour of your time. I realize random people on the internet are not exactly the most objective of observers, but this anime shows why adults can watch anime in Japan. I cannot give away too much of the plot in the review, but it starts as an intelligence operation of the government regarding a potential coup detat.

    Anyways, the story is original. You might ...

    Acca-lassic! Mystery at its best.
    From the smooth and original animations, to the cool and relaxed vibe due to the jazzy music, to the details that was just the right mix between obvious and indecipherable, this anime was able to encompass exactly what a mystery needs to be. A classic for sure!

    Easily the best of Winter 2017
    Combines the "country of the week" feel of Kino no Tabi with a well developed overarching plot focused on political intrigue. Also, the music is absolutely phenomenal. It may be a bit slow-paced for some folks, but your patience will absolutely pay off.
