The concept of a protagonist coming to this section to try to correct it, could potentially trigger a good story, especially if it was used for a comic issue. It is something repeated, but that has potential, nevertheless it would seem that the series takes another course much more desabrido. Mainly because the characters lack a personality and are only there to say their lines and make the plot progress, not much more. They keep hitting the same note since they appear until the end, especially the protagonist, which makes it quite annoying.
This series was very similar to a super sentai, with music contributing to those similarities, especially when trying to emphasize that the characters are doing something great.
The bureaucracy abounded in this series, with many permits that were required, reading rights, demonstrations of plaques and an inexplicable concern to maintain the secret identity of the characters. This could be a potentially interesting thing, if the story decided to focus on that aspect and explode it, it might come in something different but as long as they keep trying to mix it with the action, all they manage is for those scenes to feel heavy and boring, Which would have to be an intense fight.
The humor did not work well, largely because of the animation and the reactions of the characters that were not equated with what the joke of the moment required. In short, this series did not propose anything interesting, there is no indication as to where the plot can go and the characters do not have any kind of interesting interaction.

In my opinion the first season is not appealing to modern anime fans. In addition, it has long been established that most of the real anime moneymakers come out in Spring and Fall. Active Raid is just a transparent throwback piece - not a product of innovation and great creativity - made by a bunch of creators who were basically chilling out during an off-season. It is not a question of what kind of material it is.
Which is why I doubt Taniguchi and Arakawa, or the rest of the team for that matter, are not thinking about more ambitious projects in the meanwhile. Objectively speaking, this is simply a lightweight product. Neither serious enough to provide a compelling dramatic core, nor nonsensical enough to appeal to fans of complete insanity. If that sounds boring or offends your sensibilities, you would be better off watching something more substantial. Otherwise, feel free to check it out

Active Raid: Kidou Kyoushuushitsu Dai Hachi Gakari is a series of genres Comedy, Mecha, Police, Sci-Fi. Possibly the weakest link of the series. The story revolves around a team of police officers who operate from a mobile train base, and will use Willwears, powered suits of armor, to fight crime. Sounds pretty exciting, right?
The problem comes from a complete lack of focus; Only late in the series Logos truly come into play. I realize in retrospect that this is because it is leading into the next season. However, this approach is not particularly appealing to new potential watchers.
As a mostly episodic series, the appeal of each episode must come from the theme; While some of the characters hit high notes in some episodes, the plot itself does not really hold up.
The animation is quite proportional and fluid, and the CGI is not the worst I've ever seen. The Willwear assembly scenes are very well done, and quite quite a pleasure to watch.
Fights are well choreographed and action is fast paced. Lines are sharp, though sometimes they are disfigured characters due to lack of perceived importance.
There is a seemingly shameless amount of fanservice, as one might expect from the modern anime series, but I shall leave this to ones own tastes.
Easily the best part of the series is the diverse and interesting, both design wise and look wise, cast of characters.
Each character is distinct, has its own personality and theme / quirk, as one would expect, and hope for, in an anime. A bit cliché at times, but better than bland.
The side characters get fantastic character development, such as Funasaka, the giant robot otaku, or Haruka, the railfan.
Logos members seem to have their own agendas, and constantly scheme against one another, or so it seems. Hopefully we see some more interaction in the second season.
If I have a qualm, it's that, the end of season 1, the three main characters themselves have been criminally underdeveloped.

This production started badly because although it has a promising promotional image and interesting wick elements, the first chapter does not explain anything, it emphasizes some uninteresting elements that make it boring.
The anime tells us about Asami, a new officer of the eighth unit of the third mobile assault squad, in the fifth national public security division, where he is ordered to punish all who wear a Willwear (items that are like a suit Synthetic until it loses its energy). In this anime you can see a small evolution of the character and how he earns the respect of his superiors.
Although it has a striking plot, I must say that it has nothing innovative, has elements very based on productions like the power rangers or Kamen Rider, therefore it could like some fans of this type of histories, although really it is boring and monotonous due to the So excessive use of clichés.
