Plot: Active Raid Set in a part of Tokyo that has descended into a quagmire, the story follows the troublemakers of the police department, Unit 8 of the 5th Special Public Security Section’s 3rd Mobile Assault Division, popularly called ‘The Eighth’ or ‘The Garbage Men’ who use powered armor ‘Willwear’ exoskeletons to counter the rise in crime.
Impression: Active Raid follows Assistant inspector Asami Kazari who is assigned to The Eighth with the task of assessing the unit’s status and reporting it to her superiors. But her true goal is to rehabilitate this sloppy, haphazard, justice-less group. This anime looks great in terms of animation. It has fast paced action scenes, trains, robots, exoskeletons and hot police officers! All your teenage dreams are mashed into one anime! Jokes apart, this anime seemed like one of the weaker ones of the season but then again it’s just one episode and it’s too early to speculate. Let us wait and see what this anime brings to the table.
