Himitsu - Top Secret: A Different Kind of Detective Show

Currently finished: Episode 6

Even though the art style is not the type I like, the initial episode gave pretty good impression about this anime. Generally, I'm not into detective shows very much. However, Himitsu - Top Secret is different. It's not a show of solving crime for the sake of solving crimes. It approaches the topic with a very strong personal perspective. Not only it's a show of solving crime, it's also about showing that everybody out there solving crime is also a normal person like everybody else.

On a separate note, section 9 seem to be a common landing department for special police unit. Here MRI is the section 9 of the Japanese police department. As you recall, section 9 is also the special cyborg unit in the police department in Ghost In the Shell: Stand Alone Complex.
