We open with a reverse-rape scene, which I somehow can’t get over with.
Anyway, Nai, our main character, has been abducted for some reason and is about to be the rape victim of the mistress of the house. That is, until a theft attempt at this mansion throws things into a loop and has the thief inadvertently saving him.
The thief is named Gareki, and he appears to be some bomb expert. Gareki doesn’t manage to steal anything, as soon enough the mistress of the house shows up… and transforms into a monster.
Yes, sudden monster transformation right there. Gareki manage to escape thanks to his street smarts and bomb expertise, towing Nai along with him for some reason. Ok, probably it’s because Nai agreed to give Gareki his bracelet with condition. Although technically as a thief he could just steal it…
The bracelet is supposed to be special, as it is some bracelet used by an organization called Circus. Anyway the two escape from the mansion, and hitches a ride on a train. The train just so happens to be hijacked by the way, and they soon meet two members of Circus who are there to resolve the hijack incident.
It gets resolved relatively easy, even the bomb-on-train crisis, thanks to the fighting capabilities of the Circus agents, Nai’s imba hearing, and Gareki’s ECE degree. Don’t you just love it when things work out?
And then we close with a purely random scene…
I dunno man, seems pretty bland to me. The superpowers seem rather generic at this point, and a super-powered crime fighting organization is nothing new at this point. Even the characters introduced so far follow certain tropes to a tee. Especially the main characters. God, Nai is annoying. He’s your standard doormat main character, but he keeps on tenderly saying Karoku this and Karoku that in a very, uhm, gay manner. And Gareki is your typical toughened-by-street-life-but-warms-up-to-the-useless-doormat-main-character-for-some-reason foil character. This is pretty much like how No. 6 is, so heavy shounen-ai bait right there.
Well technically this is a josei show, so it’s target audience are women. Maybe I’m just not seeing its charm…
