    Show Just Came Out Today But I Love It Already!!!
    A great concept that I haven't seen before in anime. As an American, we don't get to see the Japanese side of WWII. All we consider is that they were our enemy at the time. I believe it will be an experience for me to understand more about the situation in Japan at that time. I look forward to seeing what they do with the show.

    WWII Japanese perspective of war with espionage
    Well before you say this is bad review for me giving it four stars let me just say this anime has peeked my interest but I didn't exactly fall in love. However this anime is very interesting in many ways for example (My review mostly contains spoilers I guess :P)

    (@ Ep 1) Worth Following - Stylish, taut, and sparse
    To start with, this isn't Night Raid 1931. No magic, pseudo-prophecy, etc. First episode is pure spy stuff. 'Tradecraft' is the word used in the suspense version of spy fiction (think John Le Carre). Not a lot of opportunity for action, but it doesn't look like it will go into Jason Bourne action under the guise of being a 'spy.'

    Sadly, our main character looks to be a stick-in-the-mud ...

    Japanese robots oh my
    The show is supposed to be about Japanese espionage in the WWII era. What we get is bland characters I care little for, all with robot like personalities sitting around on a Friday night in a CIRCLE stroking each ego; oh yeah and they are playing cards but claiming its like politics ( which is not ).

    This seems to develop into a piece of art with story and characters
    The first episode reminds me a lot about a book I read about the German Sicherheitsdienst. They weren't exactly nice people at all. They carried out their missions and they didn't care about anything else. When a corpse had to be delivered they delivered it like a parcle. Those 8 "monsters" are cut exactly from the same wood.

    If its too tough for you, you should watch animes of little, plain ...

    Worth Watching for the Historical Atmosphere
    As a student of military and geopolitics in college I was very interested in seeing what this show has to offer. I like the setting (Unique too since Japan usually tends to shy away from talking about this period) in 1937 during the 2nd Sino-Japanese War and the morals the main character faces with working with spies.

    Downside is that there are almost too many characters introduced in ...

  • Interesting Anime that Keeps you thinking
    So far there has only been 1 episode so you can expect more in the future but when I started watching this the title got me intrigued and I was curious what this anime was about. It starts off with a group of spies who meet during a training academy where they learn how to disguise themselves and remain invisible. The Joker Game title comes from the card game they played where there are people ...

  • so far so good, a great spy anime.
    its a rare anime which tells what the life of a spy is like and about a small spy agency run by geniuses and "superhuman's".
    the story is extremely well thought out.
    the art is great very clean and even vibrant.
    the soundtrack is not noticeable but it complements the mood nicely.

  • A great psychological anime
    I totally dig anime that combines slice of life with mystery/psychology. I feel like we need more shows that incorporate this genre. The show has many strong points. Its about spies, short story resolution within its longer storyline, a protagonist who guides us through his revelations and a great time period for being a spy. I am excited to see this anime take many different directions with its ...
