The war against the enemy of humanity – the ‘Unknown’ – continues.
The children who took shelter at the Cold Sleep Facility when the Unknown invaded several decades ago awake to find a supernatural power known as the World flowing through their own bodies.
To protect the country against the Unknown, which appear at the gate of Tokyo Bay, these young men and women begin to fight across the major defence cities: Tokyo, Kanagawa, and Chiba.
This is Qualidea – produced by Sou Sagara of Tokyo, Koushi Tachibana of Kanagawa, and Watari Wataru of Chiba.
Three Episode Impression
Qualidea Code provides a taste of everything from your ecchi scenes to the very explosive action scenes in which everyone works together to kill off the enemy. The story speaks for itself, as children are given a responsibility and must now live up to that role. We enjoyed the character interaction throughout the first three episodes, as they gave us introductions to the cast, while sharing a little back story about each of them. Where the show seems to wander off is just how these “unknown” creatures came to be, and why they couldn’t come up with a better name than the generic term. The anime title is cool and catchy, but then we end up with “unknown” enemies which made us scratch our heads a bit. As you get closer to the third episode, much of the meat is explained which is a great thing, since most anime don’t really give you much to snack on until around the 5th or 6th episodes, so our hats go off here. We look forward to more of Qualidea Code and where the two siblings venture to next.

Subhead of Chiba City. Kasumi is cynical and currently an advocate as well. His habit of making his flaws obvious makes him stand out and the only one who understands him is his younger sister Asuha.
