The 2017

January 10th, 2018 by Author

If I had to select an anime of the year 2017, it would be ACCA (also known as “13-Territory Inspection Dept.”, or “ACCA13区監察課”). For all of its faults, it was an artistic anime without being a typical NoitaminA fare. It is also dangerously subversive and can screw with weak-minded. ACCA’s world is a pan-national-socialist utopia, which obviously cannot exist. But, suppose for a moment that Mussolini made trains run on time. What would be challenges of everyday life, as well as political and historical ones, in such a case? So, the anime of the year goes to ACCA for daring thinking as well as artistic flair.
