It took me a while to get into this series, but it was definitely worth it. Generally I am not interested in mystery focused story lines, which is why the first few episodes didn't catch my interest as much. At first, it appeared to simply be investigating serial killer mysteries, but then the story became deeper, going into the association and the investigators themselves. It was interesting to me because it explores the different possibilities for what the unconcious is for the many different killers and how they became murderers. If not for Fukuda, I probably would have given the series a 5 or 6, but after a significant plot change halfway through, I had a change of heart. Originally when I met this serial killer, I thought he was creepy, strange, and did not care for his life at all. However, once learning more about him and his past, I found that he was more a victim of his life occurances and didn't want to become a murderer. After this, I found myself moved, and got a punch to the feels in the end. Because of this connection and character, my overall rating for the series and rating for characters was increased. He was honestly one of my favorite things about this show. I also really enjoyed the music. It was well utilized during action and I enjoyed the opening and ending themes. I would recommend this series. I think it will be especially enjoyable for people who like to watch mysteries and for people who find exploring the mind and unconcious interesting. It definitely has some blood and situations where people are murdered, which could make people uncomfortable. It is a show that makes you think and will keep you interested until the end. After the final episode, I felt satisfied and didn't have any unanswered questions. The story was concluded nicely and it gave a look into the future of what these characters will do, without opening new doors that would leave me unsettled. I couldn't have asked for anything more from the conclusion of this series. My main criticism was that sometimes I had trouble understanding what was going on procedurally to solve the mysteries, but this did not interfer with my appreciation of the story. ID: INVADED is a rollercoaster of a time, but it was very enjoyable!
