There is a group of government agents, working tireless from the shadows, fighting to eradicate illegal drugs and to keep Japan’s society from the clutches and menace of drugs and indiscriminate/latent drugs-abuse. These people are none other than the Anti Narcotics Agents – a special group of police officers with the judicial rights to act under Japan’s Criminal Procedural Law. They belong to the Narcotics Control Department under the Regional Bureaus of Health and Welfare; reporting directly to the island-nation’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare. And now, there is going to be anime series made based on these unsung heroes!
Titled “Stand My Heroes”, the anime series is adapted from an original puzzle-solving smartphone-based otome-game of the same title and revolves around the lives and works of an elite team of agents (who all happen to be ikemen – since this is made in an otome-game’s setting) from the special “Stand Alone Anonymous National Department” (aka “STAND” in short) under the Narcotics Control Bureau.
Key visuals and voice-casts for the six agents of “STAND” have just been revealed earlier in the week. These basically follow faithfully per original designs and seiyuus used in the game. Let’s take a look!
