A slow burner, but very stylish, especially all the jazz.

A game of who is watching who? Guessing Grossular is behind the coup?

Seems the most promising of any shows I'm watching this season on CR. My interest is still piqued. Also like the jazz numbers interspersed with the scenes in this show.

Seems to me that Grossular might be inventing this whole coup threat just to keep their department in business.

Either that or he really is planning a coup and is trying to get Jean to take the blame. It was weird how he suddenly decided to keep their department open after initially being the one who wanted to shut it down. If he knows there's no threat, there's no other reason for having someone secretly monitor Jean unless it was to convince people he's a traitor later. For a guy who hates his job, Jean seems to be very good at it and can spot the tiniest bit of corruption anywhere. Grossular was also the one who dismissed the ACCA's boss from investigating the coup after coming across the rumors on her own so he's definitely hiding the details from them. I suppose it could just be a red herring and he's planning on helping the ACCA in the long term, but he seems too shady.

Crow's been watching Jean for 30 years? If true, Jean must have been a toddler then and Crow's older than expected. He would have to be feigning as a teenager when he was in high school with Jean. I wonder how much Jean trusts him. While he did say that its important to be suspicious, I think he'll be devastated with a betrayal by his long time friend; unless he's already suspicious.

I have a slight feeling that Grossular is a misdirect. He seems too obvious as the villain.

Their relative ages was something I was having trouble with too since they both look so young.

Well, Jean mentions that they met in their first year of high school fifteen years ago. Since you normally start high school around the age of fifteen, that would make both of them thirty. Which is what I assume Nino was playing at when he said that he has been watching Jean for thirty years. I don't think that this is to be taken literally, it's just a cool one-liner that is supposed to establish the power balance of their relationship.

It also sounds like the statement to launch a thousand ships.

yeah that line threw me off abit but I think that was just an expression to say that he has watched him for a very long long time

I wonder when they really started to suspect Jean, so far at least I don't see anything out of the ordinary

This one is becoming pretty interesting and those food man, has much growth hormone to make everyone there bigger

Something doesn't sound right after this second episode.

At the start they explain the history of this country and how it survived a revolution:
First the continent? was split into several smaller states, then a king appeared and unified them under a single country. Peace laster for a while until 12 of the 13 districts rebelled against the capitol district. The current King's grandfather quelled the rebellion by giving districts autonomy and other concessions. Now there is a king ruling a federation, with each state being almost independent.
ACCA is a civilian organization that controls the fire department, police etc and has an internal inspecting department. So they actually have more power and influence than the army (if it even exists?).

With the summary out of the way here is my question: What would someone gain from a second coup d'etat?
The first one was to gain autonomy for each district; so is Grossular interested in becoming the king? That doesn't make sense though, since the king is mostly a ceremonial figure now. Also who would support him if he were to centralize power again after becoming king?
The country has minimal corruption; so there is nothing to change in that sense either, or to move people's opinion with.

The only thing that comes to mind is to weaken the country internally, to let a foreign power capitalize on it; but so far they haven't mentioned any other neighboring country.

The MC's best friend didn't think twice about buying the obvious lie that he is involved with the rebellion either. But why would he work for Grossular?
If they are both in cahoots, there would be no reason for Grossular to hire him; since it wouldn't make sense to spy someone who they both know is innocent. A random spy seeing Jean pick up the cigarette would be fine too, even if he got discovered.
If Nino is not involved with the rebellion then he should know that Jean is innocent; since he has been watching him for 30 years. Not to mention he should be able to tell if Jean was clueless to the cigarette or not.

Jean seems like the type to have really known all along that Nino was watching him, though.

Personal level: I ship okappa-kun and the sister.

I'm not even going to bother to learn his name, I like calling him okappa-kun. Between him, Yuri Plisetsky, and the character that Yuri Plisetsky reminded me of that's the reason I watched YOI (and this character also gets called okappa-kun at one point), I think I have a thing for okappa-kun characters.

Is there a personality type associated with that hairstyle? Because those three have some things in common - they get a little obsessed over a rival, or love interest, or both. Is that a thing? (Maybe an okappa-kun type is why the first okappa-kun character I liked gets shipped with the main character (his obsession) in Japan, but in English fandom sites, the main character is shipped with someone else?)

Also, I feel like, if it's not a thing already, Jean/Nino is tooootally going to be a ship. Now, there are enemy ships that can work, and then there's like, Shizaya type ships. It... remains to be seen which they are.

. . . . Mauve vs. Nino rivalry over Jean? Animosity between them over plot, but done in a way that can easily be read as them fighting over Jean?

I like Mauve so far. Also, she looks like a blue-haired version of Cornelia from Code Geass.

I don't usually care for this animation style, plot line or general mood of the story. But I checked this out from pure boredom got hooked. Now it's a favorite this season.
The music is great and perfect for the mood of the story too.
