Night Raid

on 4/6/2014

I thoroughly enjoyed this anime because it is very different on many levels from other series. First of all, it is a spy genre, something that should be exploited more in anime productions. Second, it weaves together a historical touch with a bit of fiction to flesh out some really interesting themes of espionage, intrigue, and conspiracies. Finally, it brings a touch of the fantastic as the main characters have super-human powers of the mind. This is an anime that does a good job of putting these aspects together to create a wholesome story without giving leverage to the other. What I really enjoyed most about this anime is that it is centered on Asia. Of course, there are many series where the setting is in Japan itself, but this anime makes it more interesting in exploring Asia in the 1930's and the web of politics and history surrounding that era. Modernization is taking a hold on Asia after years of isolation, and now powers are jockeying for influence in various places, including the melting pot in the city of Shanghai. This where our spy team comes in: the Sakurai Kikan, a Japanese psych-ops intelligence unit who use their unique powers to accomplish missions individually in each episode while discovering a bigger conspiracy behind it all. The writers and producers took great liberties in exploring Japanese history while planting a special plot of the creative in putting characters with these powers, especially the Mukden Incident which set off a pretext to invade Manchuria. Even the puppet emperor of Manchuria, gets a mention in the series.
