Mikura, Kurokawa, and Harada are the 3 members of a business called The Danger Service Agency. They take on all kinds of jobs no matter how hard, as long as it will buy them dinner. They get requests like guard duty, evictions, "package" transport, and some even more dangerous jobs. Every now and then they get in over their heads. Fortunately, Mikura is a bad chick. When the going gets tough she employs her karate, and her signature kick to the junk maneuver.

After several of these high profile jobs, The DSA is on the mafia's hit list, and even on the bad side of some powerful and corrupt cops. Things get pretty dangerous and very scary for DSA, but they're tough; and everyone knows that the good guys always win.

This anime started off kind of unimpressive. I just sort of tolerated it for about 4 or 5 episodes. After that, the characters get developed back stories and some drama in their lives. The characters are pretty likable, and the story is fun. As it moves toward the end, the mood gets darker. While the first part of the series is light hearted and fun, the 2nd half is dark and very cloak and dagger. It's not one of the better animes out there, but it is an enjoyable watch.

The production end of Mezzo is pretty good as well. The animation, and voice actors are above average. The soundtrack is just kinda there. It's obvious that the production wasn't rushed. Even if half the episodes were pretty superfluous.

Overall, I enjoyed Mezzo. It was actually better than I expected. It has a little in common with Armitage. In the animation, and story department. I was also reminded of the A.D. Police Anime at times. This series was a little more accommodating to younger viewers. It's definitely not for children. There is some language, violence, and a partial nude shot of a non-functional android. I think it could pass for PG 13, but not lower. I think that this is one of those that is better to watch before you buy. It's definitely not for everyone. I can see many thinking that it's a waste of time, but I got into the 2nd half of it. I think that if you like stuff along the lines of Armitage, Aika, or A.D. Police, you'll probably enjoy. Mezzo.

DSA kicks ass, even though they are kinda dumb. Each character adds the ingredient to make the dsyfunctional family work to its advantage. Street tough girl, ex-cop, computer/hardware nerd. . .very interesting mix.

After seeing various clips of this show on the net, it got my attention and so far its an anime I've quickly grown to like. I'm planning to watch the other related stuff from the director/animator. Thank you Amazon Video.

In the tradition of kite,& mezzo, Mezzo Forte delivers heavy doses of gunplay & comedy. Note that the story arc starts on a issue pulled directly out of modern times by a supporting character getting bullied in the opening scene, even though the series is over 10 years old. Still a relevent piece of work.
