From the creator of Danganronpa, set in a dystopian future in Kansai, the story follows criminals known as Akudama who is pursued by the government. Although the story may not be its strongest asset (yet), if there’s one thing it does well, it’s over the top action done in a visually stunning fashion!
Long ago, a war broke out in Japan that pitted Kantou against Kansai and divided the country. Kansai became dependent on Kantou, but slowly the police and government began losing control of Kansai to criminals known as Akudama.
With Akudama Drive, it’s one of those anime that you watch with the mindset that the story may or may not be top tier and you’re in it for the visuals and amazing animation. I say this because the first episode made it apparently clear of that! It’s one of those “turn your brain off and enjoy the show”! I like it! It’s fun and goofy in a cyberpunk way and the visually amazing.
