ID: INVADED is a 13-episode anime television series that originally aired on Tokyo MX in 2020. It is an original anime production by studio NAZ, with renowned director Ei Aoki at the helm. The premise of the show is centered around a futuristic world where the human mind can be mapped and entered, similar to a video game. This allows for the identification and capture of criminals and other offenders before they can commit their crimes. The advanced system responsible for these abilities is known as the Mizuhanome System, and it is controlled by a group of experts in the field of psychology, crime, and law enforcement.

The story follows Sakaido, a brilliant detective who has found himself trapped within the Mizuhanome System. His mission within the system is to solve a series of interconnected mysteries surrounding the brutal serial killer known as "The Perforator". But in the world of the Mizuhanome System, the lines between reality and dreams become blurred, and Sakaido must navigate his way through the twisted psyche of the killer to solve the crime.

Throughout the series, viewers are taken on a thrilling ride as Sakaido dives deeper and deeper into the mind of the killer. Along the way, he encounters a cast of complex and multi-dimensional characters, including the enigmatic "John Walker", who appears to play a key role in the ongoing mystery.

One of the standout features of the show is its visually stunning animation style. The world within the Mizuhanome System is beautifully rendered, with a mix of vibrant colors and dreamlike landscapes that create an eerie and unsettling atmosphere. The use of CGI is also prominent, but it is integrated seamlessly into the animation, making for a polished and cohesive look.

The soundtrack of the show is equally impressive, featuring a mix of eerie, atmospheric tracks that perfectly capture the tension and suspense of the unfolding mystery. The opening theme, "Mister Fixer" by Sou, is a catchy and upbeat track that sets the tone for the show, while the ending theme, "Other Side" by MIYAVI, is a haunting and introspective ballad that provides a fitting conclusion to each episode.

While the show does delve into some dark and disturbing themes, it is not without its lighter moments. The banter between the characters, particularly Sakaido and the other detectives within the system, provides some much-needed levity and helps to balance out the darker elements.

Overall, ID: INVADED is an excellent anime that combines thrilling mystery with beautiful animation and an eerie atmosphere. The story is complex and engaging, with twists and turns that will keep viewers guessing until the very end. If you're a fan of psychological thrillers and stunning visuals, this is definitely a show worth checking out.

ID: INVADED is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on January 5, 2020.
