On Books and Their Covers

The OP was initially not to my liking and the art is not my cup of tea, but there have been enough positive comments from those with reliable opinions that I actually sat through the opening and watched an episode of ACCA.

It is set in an alternate universe where certain fashions reminiscent of early Hugo Boss do not have the same implications they do here.  The show has a decidedly retro look with the art being a throwback  to some 80's girl's manga...with the protagonists removed.

A couple of background nobodies from Alexandrite ponder their newfound importance. 

The production values are not high, and it seems to be a dry procedural...but I'm hooked. 

This is really interesting!

1 Gah, that's two of you! No, I couldn't get into it at all.

2 ACCA is weird. The country is shaped like a chicken, the harmless people all have agendas and pasts, and the show gets really interesting at the exact point you are ready to drop it.
I liked it, but boy is it different. Zigs where other shows zag.

3 Shingu also had an OP of a dubious acclaim.

4 Oh, and I'm afraid I must give you a fair warning about the supposed reliability: the series I enjoy the most this season is Eromanga-sensei. So...

5 Wait.. That's a MAP not a logo.

6 It's both. Logo is based on the map.
