Akudama Drive Review — B+

Criminals attempt a big heist.

From the first episode, I thought this would be a fun, brainless romp with lots of explosions and lots of style. It turns out I was only wrong about the brainless part and a little about the fun part. It got quite dark in the middle! And usually in anime, the ending will be a disappointment, but in Akudama Drive it was the opposite— the ending surpassed everything that had come before it.

Fuck the police.

  • Storytelling – B – Great ending! Not a huge fan of the little kids subplot.
  • Voice – A – Great sense of style. Kind of dark colors though.
  • Characters – B – Fairly simple but they worked. Think the best done was the fake yakuza.
  • Attention Grab – B – Waned a bit in the middle.
  • Production – A – Looks amazing.
  • Overall – B+
