ID: Invaded Season 1: Premiere Date, Plot, Characters

‘ID: Invaded’ is an immersive anime that revolves around a gritty virtual murder mystery. But apart from having a simple detective-based storyline, ‘ID: Invaded’ is bolstered with surreal visuals of floating structures and colliding masses. From the trailer itself, one can tell that the anime will not be any ordinary murder mystery, but will have some unexpected twists and turns, clever conclusions, and an intense supernatural atmosphere.

And not to mention, the fact that its script is being written by the stylistically insane Maijo Otaro, makes it even more intriguing. A glimpse of his frenetic ramblings can be seen in the trailer itself, which unfolds way too many things at one without revealing much about the storyline of the series. So if you’re into mind-racking mystery anime like ‘Erased‘ and ‘Baccano!‘, you should certainly watch ‘ID: Invaded’. With that said, to know more about the release of ‘ID: Invaded’, read on further.
