Joker Game is an anime that came out last year during the spring season.
This show was also probably one of the main highlights of that season and therefore, I decided to give it a chance.
In autumn of 1937, as the coals of World War II are beginning to smolder, Lt. Col. Yuuki of the Imperial Army secretly establishes a spy training organization called the “D Agency.” Those chosen as members of the agency, in opposition to the national trend toward reverence of native-born soldiers in the army, are civilian university graduates who pass the superhuman selection test with flying colors. Under the resourceful Lieutenant Colonel Yuuki, they learn not only how to work with gunpowder, wireless communications, vehicles, and airplanes, but also various skills essential for spies…
The animation was truly spectacular and it did really fit the theme of the World War II time period. I also really liked the landscaping and the architecture designs as they were heavily detailed and allowed viewers to feel more immersed within each episode.
Each spy is very smart, realistic and of course, mysterious. The only problem I had was that I felt as if each spy was like a replicate of one another as they all had the same personality so it made some of the episodes a little bit dull but other than that, I really enjoyed what each character had to offer. Personally, I really enjoyed Tazaki’s episode the most (ep 6) as I loved the classical spy vibe he brought off and his episode was really intriguing with the whole assassination mission.
I would give this anime…
Thank you for reading.
I hope you have a wonderful day.
