Double Decker! Doug & Kirill
DOUBLE DECKER! ダグ&キリル

Synopsis

In the city-state Risvaletta, while people go about their tranquil everyday lives, crimes and illegal drugs run rampant. Above all, a dangerous, highly-fatal drug named "Anthem" is casting a dark shadow on the streets. The "Seven-O" special criminal investigation unit whose specialty is to supervise the investigation of Anthem, institutes a "Double Decker System" policy of forming groups of two investigators, and all members are given nicknames.

One team consists of the veteran investigator Doug Billingham accompanied by the rookie Kirill Vrubel. This unconventional duo combines an aloof veteran detective who is hard to get a read on and an inexperienced detective who is a little too eager.

TL;DR Review

Double Decker! Doug & Kirill (Double Decker! ダグ&キリル) is a Japanese anime television series produced by Sunrise.

The animation is great if you are into the super colorful neon aesthetic. Everything is overly vibrant and feel like you’re in an 80’s arcade. The style is almost identical to Tiger & Bunny‘s art, because this is the same staff that worked on both series.

The opening theme is “Stereo to Monologue” by KiRiSaMe, and the ending theme is “Buntline Special” by Vickeblanka.

I feel this series was written for a much younger crowd, so many of the jokes just feel really dumb and forced. The characters act over the top to convey their emotion as if the audience would not understand subtlety.

Double Decker is all about flash and style to get attention, but lack any substance when it comes to character development and plots. Pretty to look at, but dumb as a brick.

The show feels like a procedurally generated crime drama. The plot doesn’t go anywhere and loosely progressed. It’s not a horrible show, just not a good one either.

I can’t recommend Double Decker! Doug & Kirill to anyone over 10, unless you just happen to really enjoy Tiger & Bunny. This anime contains graphic violence and some suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for young adults.
