L/R: Licensed by Royalty is a fictional Japanese anime television series about 'Cloud 7,' an organization whose job is to protect the royalty of the fictional country of Ishtar. Ishtar seems closely modeled on United Kingdom, and the series has a James Bond-like feeling.
As of August 2005, this series aired on AZN Television. The two main characters of the show are Jack Hofner (the charming polite blonde haired man with sea blue eyes, and Rowe Rickenbacker (long brown hair/eyes- impolite most of the time). The series focuses mainly on the team L/R, and on the protection of Noelle, a 14 year old girl from the fictional country of Ivory.
Volume #1: Deceptions
The royal family often has "special" jobs that require intervention and can't be directly linked to the government. For these impossible missions, they often call upon their most trusted agents in the private sector: Cloud 7.
