    A long time ago dragons ruled a world of elves, dwarves, vampires, homunculi, and humans. In the present dragons have all but disappeared, so the ones left chose to live together, and their appearance came to resemble that of humans. The year 2x19 in Tokyo is mostly a time of peace, but a group called the Nine cause chaos in their quest to obtain the dragons' powers and change the world. The police form a unit consisting of various experts to fight against Nine; the Special Crime Investigation Unit - Special 7 (Tokunana). These individuals have abilities that surpass the average human, to the extent that there are rumors of rebellion against them. A rookie, Seiji Nanatsuki, enters the unit. While teased by other members with colorful personalities, he sets out to solve cases involving Nine with his bright mind and straightforward thinking. Will he be able to find justice in the most grueling circumstances?

    Episode 1

    Can't mask this.

    So it begins with a case where the Seiji is on the case dealing with a bank hostage case, and with his teammates, they managed to stop them, though they had to blow out a section of the bridge to do it. Shiori sure is flashing with the sword, while the ninja girl has some tricks up her sleeve. Pretty much, it's all action and no story, and while I can live with that, it better build something from the next episode onward.

    So with that, usual trial period rules are in effect, and I'll see if this show is worthwhile or not with the next couple of episodes.

      Episode 2

      Just a rookie.

      And after an action-packed first episode, this one is more of a detective drama as Rookie and Charisma are investigating a string of murders involving politicians on the most hated blog. It turns out that the site was constructed by one guy who was paid by the perpetrator, and after connecting the dots they find they killer. Rookie nearly bit the dust there as his inexperience definitely shows, but Charisma was there to back him up. Pretty much, this is more of the same from the first episode as it's all about the action and drama, but the lack of story just doesn't sit well.

        Episode 3

        Special 7's the bomb.

        And now, some generic bomb drama as a guy has laid out four bombs, and Special 7 has to diffuse them. Of course, there's that typical wire dilemma where cutting the wrong wire could lead to an instant explosion. Seiji nearly rushed into cutting the wrong one as there were two yellow wires with the last bomb, but he lucked out. Pretty much it's another case with action, drama, and going to show why Seiji is acting true to his nickname of Rookie.

        So I guess I'll give it one more episode, but given how crowded this season is that it's facing quite an uphill battle to get onto my watchlist. This show hasn't done anything to stand out.
