ACCA is a very slow burn to watch. I say that because while the world building of the series has been pretty great, it feels like the show is moving forward at the speed of meh. That doesn’t mean there nothing is happening, but the ACCA feels like letting you know this world is the most important thing in the series so far. I say this because while we do know about our protagonist Jean Otus by what his job is, what he likes to do, where he likes to buy food, and some others traits, I still don’t feel like I know him. Maybe that is the point. Maybe getting to know who he is, what he does, and why he hasn’t quit his job, is part of the plot. It’s hard to say right now. The only major thing that is going on right now is a possible Coup that the government things Jean is involved in for some reason. Even that hasn’t led to much yet. The show is definitely moving forward in some kind of direction, but sometimes it feels like ACCA has is more interesting in people eating good looking food than anything else.
The production side of the show is fantastic. The hard to animate character designs are animated pretty well, the backgrounds of the two ACCA districts that Jean has visited are pretty unique, and the city that Jean walks around are pretty cool. I also like that female members of ACCA can wear pants if they choose too instead of being forced into a skirt like every other anime in existence.
So yeah, not sure if I want to give this a recommendation. While it looks pretty and the world it is based around is decently fleshed out, not much is going on at the moment. There has been two episodes and it feels like a chess game where the players are setting up their pieces to advance instead of just jumping in and doing something interesting. If that sounds cool to you, go ahead and watch it. If it doesn’t, you can easily skip this show.
