students from Tokyo Butei High underwent special training to become a Butei (武装探偵), certified to capture criminals. Kinji was a second year students there. he had a special ability but kept it hidden to maintain an ordinary life. he decided to quit the academy, but was attacked by the mysterious Butei Killer. Aria, an elite came to his rescue and since then teamed up with him.
the anime felt similar to Toradora (2008), which we absolutely adored! Aria had a Tsundere (ツンデレ) characteristic, a complete opposite of Shirayuki, Kinji's childhood friend. for obvious reason, the girls fought for Kinji's attention but simultaneously protected him from harm. Kinji's special god mode ability was something new to look out for. it balanced out his unwillingness to participate in hunting down the Butei Killer, which also brought Aria to her knees. the combination was absolutely fascinating!
