A new key visual, a new teaser trailer, the main cast, and the main staff have been revealed for the newly announced Special Crime Investigation Unit – Special7 (known in Japan as Keishichō Tokumu-bu Tokushu Kyōaku-han Taisaku-Shitsu Dai-Nana-ka -Tokunana-), an upcoming original TV anime about a ragtag group of cops forming a special squad to take on the resurgence of organized crime.
Set in the year 2×19 in Tokyo, Special Crime Investigation Unit – Special7 involves the rise of a criminal organization named “Nine” that seeks to reclaim the power of the dragons, the legendary creatures that were said to have once ruled the world. In order to combat these criminals, the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department forms a special unit of highly skilled but idiosyncratic individuals called the “Special7”. Will the newly assigned (and completely strait-laced) Seiji Nanatsuki be able to fit in with this band of misfit cops in order to pursue his own sense of justice?
Special Crime Investigation Unit – Special7 will broadcast in Japan during the Fall season of 2019.
