What comes to mind when I think of Concrete Revolutio? Well, lots of things. Like aliens, mecha, superpowers, a witch who comes complete with a Sailor Moon-esque transformation scene, and a little creature with an old man voice that lives in said witch’s cleavage.

Yeah, it’s a bit all over the place, really.

Oh, and add two different timelines to that list.

The first timeline takes place when our heroine, Kikko, is a teenager. I think she’s fifteen? She’s working in a cafe where an alien spy just happens to be having secret dealings with an important scientist. And somehow she gets roped into helping Jirou, a complete stranger, apprehend this alien. What follows is a strange mash-up of magic and aliens, which basically serves as an origin episode, introducing Kikko to what Jirou does in the Superhuman Bureau – protecting innocent superhumans and punishing dangerous ones.

The second timeline is randomly interjected into the episode a couple times, and takes place five years later. For whatever reason, Jirou has become a fugitive, and the person trying to apprehend ¬†him is none other than Kikko. Well, not that she can seem to decide whether she wants to shoot him or confess to him.¬†Jirou declares that he won’t return to the Superhuman Bureau, then makes his escape, leaving Kikko to feel sad about things.


Concrete Revolutio is certainly a bit muddled up and rough around the edges. But it’s still got my attention.
