ED: 「Sherry」 by dB
Watch the ED! Mirror 1
The ending song isn’t bad, but it doesn’t really seem to fit the series. Maybe something with a bit more rock would be better for this series.
I guess the R-15 rating should have tipped me off that this wouldn’t be fun and games. The basic premise to Tokko is that the main character Shindou has joined the police force during a period of particularly brutal crimes. His parents were killed in an bloody incident five years ago and he now lives with just his sister. Shindou keeps having a dream of that day when he and his sister found his dead parents (or what was left of them) and of the girl holding a bloody sword. He finds out that there exists an elite section in the police force called the Tokko that’s rumored to carry swords. Shindou witnesses one of them first-hand when the exact same girl from his dreams comes and saves him when some zombie-ish humans attack him and his fellow officers.
Animation is decent for the first episode. I’m not a big fan of the character designs, especially given how good they looked in Fujisawa Tooru’s original work. But the main reason I won’t be watching this is because of the excessive violence (people getting shot in the face, heads crushed, decapitations, blood everywhere). It’s just not the series for me.
