By: Anime Herald March 20, 20190 Comments

Earlier today, an official website and Twitter account opened their doors to announce that an original anime project, titled Tokunana (Keishichō Tokumu-bu Tokushu Kyōaku-han Taisaku-Shitsu Dai-Nana-ka -Tokunana-, lit. Metropolitan Police Department Special Division Heinous Crime Investigation Unit Special 7: Tokunana) is in the works.

The site includes the first cast and crew members, along with a trailer and key visual. We break the details down below.


The minute-long teaser opens with harsh monochromatic coloring and close-ups of the main characters preparing for duty. It them cuts to an action scene, in which the members of Tokunana show their stuff as they’re introduced to the world. All the while, a brassy, upbeat melody plays as a background track.
