With World War II right around the corner, intelligence on other countries' social and economic situation has become a valuable asset. As a result, Japan has established a new spy organization known as the "D Agency" to obtain this weapon. Under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Yuuki, eight agents have been assigned to infiltrate and observe some of the most powerful countries, reporting on any developments associated with the war. In order to carry out these dangerous tasks, these men have trained their bodies to survive in extreme conditions and studied numerous fields such as communications and languages. However, their greatest strength lies in their ability to manipulate people in order to obtain the information necessary to give their nation the upper hand.

Brooding spy show while on the money with its tone and direction, is lacking in any memorable characters.


Episodic series with little overarching narrative. That’s exactly what I wanted from this series. I would go for round 2.


Good for its genre I guess, but I didn’t find it that memorable.


No characters, no tension, no stakes and no emotional investment. Dull cinematography and aesthetic. Everything told through exposition.


Pretty good view into the classic world of espionage but no substantial impact to make it memorable.


I love it but the characters is unmemorable.
