ACCA - 13-ku Kansatsu-ka Episode 2: Still waiting


It's so hard to comment on this show since stuff doesn't really seem to be happening. This episode seemed like a lot more setup, so I'll reserve judgment until the reveal. I will say, though, that it was a bit weird that the thing with Jean's lighter defused so easily. Opening song's still good, though...

Jean as a possible culprit is an interesting suggestion. It's nice to put this early when we don't know all too much about the character yet, so even though we're inclined to believe, with good reason, that he's innocent or not necessarily involved in the coup in a malicious way, we can't necessarily feel assured yet. There are a lot of cool ways this could go and I'm looking forward to seeing what happens. Given Jean's personality, I really want him to at least know something cool that he's hiding from the government.

This is world-building, I guess...

Wait, you named your organization after a species that had just died out? Really heavy on the optimism, huh? Also, I assume we're not gonna be told what ACCA actually stands for...

Oh, so he's just gonna tell us his plan. Does this entire plan really hinge on the fact that the lighter would be very easily linked to the main character? Do people just never buy lighters? I imagine they can be used for non-cigarette purposes.

So you're telling me that this guy's only problem with Jean was the fact that he assumed Jean was rich? Also, how exactly was he expecting to explain the cigarette smell on him when he returned to his superiors? Someone explain this plan to me.

Please tell me she's planning the coup or something.

Well, based on the hair, it's strongly suggested that this is Nino, which explains why the board is aware that Jean has noticed that he's being watched. I like this setup so far and I like the suspicions on Jean too.

Uhh...so he's saying that most of the restaurants have America-sized portions, but Basswood is the only one that's good? That's reassuring...

Hold on...2.22 meters? That's over 7 feet! If that's the average, that means that multiple people are Yao Ming-sized and that guy has bone problems. Are you sure about that?

Wow he went from crazy stalker trying to ruin Jean to crazy stalker trying to bone Jean's sister pretty quickly.

Now I want Nino to be Crow just because it makes their relationship more interesting.

Now I also want Jean to have noticed that Nino/Crow is watching him. Though, it might just be because I can't do much else in this show.

    I get the feeling this show would be better to marathon watch and to review in one hit but I'm not stopping at this point because I have loved the set up. It may not lead to a decent payoff but I'm really enjoying how the characters are being fleshed out and we're slowly learning more about the intrigues going on in this world.
