ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept.
ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept. tells the story of an inspector uncovering a plan to overthrow the government. After learning who's affiliated with whom, Jean must decide where he stands.
I was initially captivated by ACCA, urging others to watch it with me. The first episode reminded me of Sherlock Holmes, impressing me with the main character's ability to discover the truth. It was just unfortunate the he failed to impress me after that. I later decided that he wasn't as smart as I thought.
Jean's sister and best friend are the other two main characters you see a lot of, and a few superior officers in the ACCA organization he works for. Jean's sister is special in that she's innocent and unassuming. Her lack of ambition or motive made her the most uninteresting character in the show. But I still found myself liking her more than the others. Jean's best friend, Nino, always kept secrets, and therefore felt untrustworthy.
One of the antagonists, Prince Schwan, was remarkable in how lousy he was as a leader. My dislike for him ultimately reflected in my disapproval for the series.
All of the other characters seemed like placeholders or extras unworthy of much discussion. Mauve was pretty.
The setting as a whole was pretty too. I enjoyed the drawing and colors, and I liked the jazzy soundtrack, but not enough to recommend watching the series.
If you want to hear the soundtrack yourself, it's on YouTube here.
