Fate/Apocrypha's Yuichiro Higashide writes about misfit unit battling dragon worshippers

A website opened on Wednesday to announce Keishichō Tokumu-bu Tokushu Kyōaku-han Taisaku-Shitsu Dai-Nana-ka -Tokunana- (Special Crime Investigation Unit Special 7 or literally, Metropolitan Police Department Special Division Heinous Crime Investigation Unit Special 7: Tokunana), an original television anime premiering this fall.

Set in a different Tokyo on a different world than ours, the story follows Tokunana, a unit of assembled misfits in the Metropolitan Police Department. Tokunana battles against "Nine" — an organization commiting crimes in their zealous worship of the dragons that once roamed the world.

The cast stars:

Hiro Shimono as Seiji "Rookie" Nanatsuki

Kenjiro Tsuda as Shiori "Charisma" Ichinose

Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Kujaku "Analyzer" Nijō

The other characters include:

Akane "Samurai" Shikisai

Bellemer "Ninja" Cinq

Rokusuke "Sniper" Endō

Sakon Zeroemon "Boss" Kiryūin

Note: Similar to Gundam Wing, the characters all have wordplay for numbers in their names.

Harume Kosaka (Sailor Moon technical director) is directing the anime with chief director Takayuki Kuriyama (Angolmois: Record of Mongol Invasion), and Yuichiro Higashide (Fate/Apocrypha) is in charge of the series scripts. Hiroya Iijima (Mazinger Z: Infinity) is adapting the original character designs by manga creator Nanae Chrono (Peace Maker) for animation.
