So much for the rookie guy being super tough after taking that knife wound. Still, he didn't seem all that bothered by it either.

Never would have guessed the loli was a homonculi.


My guess is he heels like Deadpool or Wolverine

Speaking only for myself. I really like Akane "Samurai" Shikisai. She has a gregariousness not normally seen in vampires.

Also perusing Reddit I found this interesting bit of information that had not occured to me.

Ichinose - One

Nijo - Two

three is suspiciously missing; could it be/have been the guy who saved MC at the airport?

Shikisai - Four

Cinq - Five (this one is French, probably because the character is an elf? I don't know if she's an elf for sure, but that's the only reason I could think of that she has a French name while the rest are Japanese)

Rokusuke - Six

Nanatsuki - Seven

And of course Big Boss is Zeroemon - Zero

I liked the second episode better than the first. That seems to be a welcome trend with the shows I was cautiously hopeful about this week. I think the more the show focuses on the squad and less on the MC, the more I like it.

I didn't see the homonculi thing coming either. She specializes in drones, which are arguably a kind of technological homonculi, so she's a homonculi that makes homonculi.

I wonder who made her?

I try to give everything 3 episodes to make an impression but the first episode stinks of a bang average action show for 13 year old boys. I'd probably like it more if it was a straight up cop or black ops action drama, this doesn't really know what it wants to be. The fantasy elements seem to be just there to have some edgy super powers come into it and the matrix ninja stuff was kinda dumb. After she showed up and chopped up all of their bullets it's like "oh the guns were no threat I guess?" so why didn't they just send her in and avoid getting told off for blowing up the rainbow bridge? It looks like she could have just walked in and saved the day instantly but I guess we needed to introduce drone ka-boom girl by having her do more than be a tech loli.

We'll see where they go with this but I don't know if I want to suspend my disbelief enough to enjoy this if the story is as dull as I think it's going to be.



There is a big difference between a 9mm sub-machine gun and a mounted 50 cal. A 9mm fires at roughly 950 feet per second with about 300 ft/lbs of energy. A round out of that 50 cal fires at roughly 2,800 feet per second with with 13,000 ft/lbs of energy. It would take about 50 shots out of that sub machine to deliver the striking force of a single round out of that mounted 50 cal. Those two guns are not anywhere near the same league. It would be a bit like the difference between a human with a baseball bat trying to hit a hundred mile an hour fast ball vs a 300 mile an hour bowling ball. Although I wouldn't bet against the guy trying to hit the fast ball out of the park, I sure as hell would be betting against the guy trying too hit 300 mile an hour bowling balls.

She's actually a homunculus. There'd have to be two or more of her for her to be homonculi.

Just watched the first ep, man that was boring, actually fell asleep and had to watch the rest in the morning. And hearing Kenjirou Tsuda voicing another cop in a fantasy show in exactly the same way is so lame. Even Cop Craft wasn't this bad, dropped.

I get it. But, the second episode is better than the first.

The second episode is more interesting, but that's not really saying much. Ichinose planting the bike in the guy's face was funny, though.

Again this week the Rookie takes a hit, and even shows his pants cut and blood spurting, but then later he's walking around fine with not even a stitch in his pants. I can't decide if the show is intentionally trying to hint at his super-power, or if the production chain just isn't keeping track of changes to characters.

Like the show, one of the ones I look forward to each week so far. Only 2 episodes but I find it better then many of the other 'new' shows this season. Fall is kinda slow other then the big names holding it up.

After watching the first ep, my guess that the rookie cop might be a werewolf (since regular bullets don't work on him, and he has tsuki/moon in his last name). I mean, there are vampires, so why not werewolves? If he's hurt by silver weapons, that would clinch it.

Episode 3

And we have your typical bomb drama where it's all about cutting the right wires. The bomber sure was hellbent on destroying those buildings, but once again Special 7 saves the day. Rookie still has quite a lot to learn once again seeing that he rushed into cutting those wires, especially the last one but in the end it all worked out. Pretty much, it's more of the same as the first two episodes as it's another case with Rookie acting true to his nickname with another teammate helping him do things the right way.

OK....

I'm starting to get a bit bored with rookie's pronouncements

I can fairly safely say that episode plot and such is not that what I watch for. It is fairly predictable. I guess I am slightly curious as to where it will all end up though. For me an anime of this type is just fun, and not something I take too seriously. I like to watch it because it doesn't demand anything of me and so becomes relaxing entertainment. Well, unless, they start to introduce too many annoying tropes.

Oh, IMO, I'd guess that rookie is a dragon and has no idea. I figured that since the start with the whole thing with the other species looking like humans and dragons disappearing. How exactly that happened I have no idea.
