Replace the staff with a hammer and you get City Hunter.
Hagure Yuusha no Esthetica is one of those shows that some people would dismiss as crapon first sight, judging the book by it’s cover. Needless to say I was interested ever since I heard about it and started watching it. It was awesome. Akatsuki was awesome. Oosawa Akatsuki. One of the most badass lady-killer since Saeba Ryo. I’ve been loving every single minute of it. Another good point is the fact that the OP makes sense as soon as you watch episode 2. The show managed to introduce it’s characters, factions and devices pretty fast. The one thing I hate about it is that the show went for the “go read the LN” ending and that no one is translating the LN in English. I’ll never know what happens next.
Also, what’s with this bus? Except that it’s made for left-hand driving the bus really look like the public transport buses in Paris and the suburbs cities. It even has a real French ad on it for Ricoré. “Entre un ticket choc et un ticket chic, une pause stick?” I wonder who the hell on the staff decided to do that, and how they heard about the slogan they used. Is it a reference to a slogan used dozens of years ago in an ad of the RATP, the biggest transport company here, about selling their tickets?
