Follow TV Tropes
Well it's out with a few episodes. IIRC, the show had an early preview of the first two episodes after 12/15.
Here's the synopsis:
Some viewers said that it reminds them of the Gantz series.
Stumbled upon this. Quite interesting ideas to explore and set-ups for future. First two episodes got me hooked.
Edit: Watched 5 episodes. The series has interesting ideas and sets up interesting possibilities. A bit bland in dialogues from time to time but the creativity more than makes up for it. Is very direct with death and murder in general. The dreamscape part has lots of potential.
I recommend it. To me, it was a breath of fresh air in the miasma of bland fanservice that seemed to overtake anime.

I've watched up to episode 5 and I've enjoyed it so far, especially the protagonist figuring out each mindspace's internal logic.
So would this be compared to Gantz? Critics mentioned it.
I haven't made up my mind on how objectively "good" this show is (a lot of Proper Noun exposition and the number of cop show clichés, sci-fi and otherwise, are staggering) but it's been keeping me on the edge of my seat so far more often than not so it's doing something right.
This show reminds me of Psycho Pass a bit which is a good thing.

So. Episode 6. I kinda saw it coming but it's still a shock.
I personally do not think that the new girl is a serial killer, even in mindset. She doesn't act like one, if anything she acts more like the bigtime idealistic type. I imagine the brain damage from the Perfurator's attack ended up making her more reckless, the fact she has killed in self-defense against a serial killer isn't a sign to me that she is one. It's interesting though as as mentioned before this show reminds me a lot of Psycho Pass and Psycho Pass also had a similar issue with the female cop main protag having a different mindset than most.
I have a big feeling that something more fishy is going on here, likely to do with that serial killer creator guy. Our pink haired protagonist also seems to of gotten screwed over the same way as her and is treated like a serial killer even though he's tearing apart other serial killers motivations which I really don't blame him for considering what happened to his family. I think something stinks in the force because this flippant disregard for their own is quite concerning.
It's more that Hondomachi shows an extreme Lack of Empathy after killing one half of the Gravedigger team, showing more reaction to successfully getting a cognition particle reading than the fact that she just stabbed a person who is currently lying, bleeding out on the floor behind her. Even if its in self-defence that very lack of reaction is disturbing.

Hondoumachi is closer to fitting the profile of a psychopath than any of the actual serial killers. Reckless, not concerned about others, doesn't do guilt, all she's really missing is a history of animal abuse
So Episode 7 just furthers my suspicions that something reeks within the police force. Momoki is arrested under evidence of being John Walker because an investigation leads to a body being found on his (?) property. The thing that makes me think this is wrong is his sheer surprise in his reaction and the fact that he looks nothing like John Walker from the little brief features we have gotten of him. If anything, the old Director Guy looks like John Walker and Momoki is likely taking the fall. Beyond that Hondoumachi found something unusual whilst being a brilliant detective and she is taking to the job really well, seems to have a full name too as one oddly enough. Our pink haired dude is of course pissed because she is exploring his well after he killed the Challenger (serial killer whom destroyed his family) and trying to find John Walker

Hi! Not sure if this is the time or the place to post this, but a works page has been created for ID:Invaded! I went ahead and added a few tropes, but it's bare bones and the summary could use some fixing up. If anyone here is interested in contributing it would be appreciated!
Thanks! Here's a link 
Helped out a bit by putting index entries with the page.
Watched some episodes.
I now see this a police procedural mashup of Psycho Pass, Gantz and a dash of Inception and (maybe) Minority Report.
"Minority Report meets Inception" is how I usually explain this show's premise to people.
I did a marathon.
And man. Those Wham episodes.
Well I'm sure that's a twist no one saw coming!
I'd say the set up was competent enough. I feel like I figured it out myself from the clues and implications without being explicitly shoved into the solution. My general verdict so far it that this show uses tropes competently, even if they are obvious.
13th episode coming on the 22nd.
Fingers crossed for Fukuda! I like him and his weird relationship with Hondamachi too much to accept him dying
Fukuda is a totally a fan favorite especially at the start of Episode 8.
I can't still get over on his death. I'm still hoping that he'll wake up in the ending.
