ACCA Series Review


Overview: ACCA tells the story of Jean Otus, an inspector who travels the 13 districts of the Kingdom of Dowa, who is about to get drawn into a whole lot of political intrigue. With rumours of a coup gathering momentum, what will Jean do? Probably smoke a cigarette. I reviewed ACCA week to week so … Continue reading ACCA Series Review

ACCA Episode 12


Review: While I suspect not all will be thrilled with the way this resolved, for me it was the perfect way to end this story. At all times, things have been pretty laid back and resolved without much in the way of violence, and for the coup to end the way it did works perfectly … Continue reading ACCA Episode 12

ACCA Episode 11


Review: ACCA has been a great watch and while part of me wondered if the final episodes could deliver after the last of the mysteries seemed revealed, episode 11 answers the question with a resounding 'yes'. Everything about this episode worked and continues to tie the plot together while continuing to give us highly nuanced … Continue reading ACCA Episode 11

ACCA Episode 10


Review: There's no doubt ACCA has been an amazing watch so far and even this episode works very well and continuing the narrative and driving us ever closer to a climax that is definitely taking shape now. However... The writing this week has to be questioned. Now that Jean knows he is royalty it seems … Continue reading ACCA Episode 10

ACCA Episode 9


Review: Part of me is really happy to find out the Grossula is not the mastermind, but I'm not certain about the actual reveal. Sure it fits but it didn't quite feel satisfying, mostly because we still don't know what's actually behind everything. Hopefully that reveal is coming soon. Jean is all but absent from … Continue reading ACCA Episode 9

ACCA Episode 8


Review: ACCA continues to know when it is time to make a reveal and this week the focus is entirely on what happened with the Princess and how Nino ended up watching over Jean and Lotta. Normally I'm not big on flashback episodes where we're told what happened back when, usually because we've already made … Continue reading ACCA Episode 8

ACCA Episode 7


Review: If you haven't watched the episode, spoilers ahead. This show is a joy to watch. After weeks of holding off on giving us anything solid this week seems all about having characters just dropping major reveals casually like it is nothing into their everyday conversations. We don't learn everything, and there is still the … Continue reading ACCA Episode 7

ACCA Episode 6


Review: I can't help but get into full speculation mode while watching this anime. The Prince hanging the portrait and kind of seeing the girl in the portrait the king always looks at kind of just fuels the idea that maybe there's a connection between the royal family and Jean. Though in addition to that … Continue reading ACCA Episode 6

ACCA Episode 5


Review: This show is fascinating. Okay, the food obsession continues with the various people watching Lotta continually being distracted by eating, which is just kind of amusing but is hiding the more important question of whether or not the Prince's infatuation with Lotta is actually of any significance or whether it is just one more … Continue reading ACCA Episode 5

ACCA Episode 4


Review: You kind of suspected that some of these 13 districts wouldn't be all sweetness and light and giant food and episode 4 takes us to a district where the locals are less than impressed by the leadership they are receiving. Their representative, who promised to change the district, essentially left to live the good … Continue reading ACCA Episode 4
