The Millionaire Detective: Balance: Unlimited

Hello everyone. I hope you are all doing well. I am back with another anime blog post. This time, I want to talk about an anime called The Millionaire Detective: Balance: Unlimited. So without further ado, let us get right into it.

The Millionaire Detective: Balance: Unlimited, also known as Fugou Keiji: Balance: Unlimited, tells the story of Daisuke Kambe, a millionaire who joins the Modern Crime Prevention Headquarters of the Metropolitan Police Department as a detective. The department is looked down on by the rest of the other detectives in other departments because detectives that cause problems or do not qualify to be top tier detectives are sent to this department. Kambe is assigned as the partner to Haru Katou who has a strong sense of justice and duty. These two often butt heads as Haru does not agree with the way Daisuke does his job, but they must work together to solve crimes.

The anime came out in 2020 so it is still quite recent. Everything about the anime is good; voice acting, animation, and sound design. The characters are all okay. You have the usual goofy characters who are just there for comedic relief and don’t really add much to the story. The two protagonists are great, but Daisuke Kambe stands out above the rest. I believe that he is a well-written character and it may not seem so at first but there are a lot of layers to him. He is a man of few words, but they carry great importance. He steals every scene he is in. He has this class about him that is just too cool for words. All the voice actors do a great job making their characters distinct and noticeable, but Yuusuke Oonuki, the voice actor for Daisuke, brings a specific gravitas to his character that elevates the show, at least in my opinion. It sounds like I’m worshipping him so I’ll just stop here.

I was not going to write about this anime, to be honest. I remember starting it when it first came out, but for some reason, I lost interest. I decided to pick it back up again about a month ago and start over, and I ended up liking it. It might seem pointless at first, but there is an overarching storyline (which I’m not going to spoil) that held my interest till the very end. It makes for an easy, and at times fun, watch, so consider giving this one a look-see. The anime is only 11 episodes, which is great because nowadays I love short anime. I will leave the trailer below for you to check out.

Well, that is it from me. Thank you all for reading. I hope you all keep safe, and I will see you all in the next blog post.

Sincerely Yours,
Kojo
