Mad Bull

Mad Bull

Mad Bull is a rogue cop who doesn't take crap from anyone. In a metropolis laden with sex and violence, he makes his own law as he executes violent criminals according to his own laws. Now, his rookie partner Daizaburo is exposed to his controversial ways and must decide whether Bull is a real hero or worse than the criminals he's fighting!

If you liked Angel cop thisi series is for you!! It has the same awful dubbing with the over the top swearing and some of the worst lines you've ever heard. The blood and gore is also very similar to the style of Angel Cop.

Okay, so you have cops, violence, and a very creative bad guys. Mix that with some nude scences and more violence and you have a another great/bad cop vs bad guy anime. Angel Cop from what I've seen tends to be a little more serious than Mad Bull though.
HasseRovdjur

Both are ugly and violent OVAs that are ostensibly about the challenges law enforcement officers face. Both also come with rather... thespianly challenged dubs chock full of expletives. Angel Cop is more gritty and a whole lot less sexist while Mad Bull tries to be more tongue-in-cheek, but the rampant misogyny (that is anything but tongue-in-cheek) ruins most of the effect.

If you for some reason enjoyed either, check out the other. If you saw one and that it was trash but still want more, do yourself a favour and check out the other work.

Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell
  • Movie (1 ep x 83 min)
  • 1995

A mysterious new hacker known only as the Puppet Master threatens to create chaos, erasing and rewriting the memories of his victims: humans who have cast away their physical body to become cyborgs. Is he an evil genius, or could he signal the beginning of a new age in the relationship between man and machine?

While definitely more action-oriented than Ghost in the Shell, Angel Cop does share a sci-fi element, policital intrigue, and a certain "who can you trust?" theme with it. Angel Cop is lighter on the symbolism and underlying messages and focuses more on actual plot development and keeping the viewer excited and entertained.

Another futuristic political drama. If you like Angel Cop, you will love this.

AD Police Files

AD Police Files

The year is 2027, and robotic dreams of the past have turned into a present nightmare with artificial organs turning humans into machines, and advanced AI making androids more like people. With the boundaries of humanity and morality blurring, it's the inhumanity of modern crime that the Advanced Police have to face every day on the dark streets of MegaTokyo - everything from masochistic cyborgs to subway prostitute murders. Will the violence and corruption of the city be too much for new recruit Leon McNichol?

If you like police anime, Angel Cop and AD Police Files are good to watch. Angel Cop is about terrorists while AD Police Files has some humor; you won't be able to take your eyes off either.

Akira

Akira
  • Movie (1 ep x 125 min)
  • 1988

Following the disaster wrought upon the world by a mysterious being called ‘Akira’, Neo Tokyo is now in social and economic turmoil. In such a decaying city, feisty Kaneda and his shy friend Tetsuo survive by running around in a biker gang, chasing local rivals and generally evading the police. Everything changes, however, when Tetsuo crashes into a strange-looking boy during a bike chase and the military ends up taking him away. When he eventually returns to his friends, he’s no longer the same weak little boy they always knew – in fact, a military experiment has turned him into something beyond human imagination. While the military is intent on reclaiming its specimen at any cost, Tetsuo is sick of being bullied around and is about to show everyone, including his friend Kaneda, exactly who is boss.

Akira and Angel Cop are sci-fi action titles that both revolve around characters with powerful psychic abilities. Angel Cop is the more straightforward of the two, but the atmosphere (and the violence) is rather similar to Akira.

Bounty Dog

Bounty Dog

The Moon – Earth’s mysterious companion for countless ages, always keeping its dark side hidden from human eyes. It has not stayed hidden forever, as the moon has now been colonized and has a city of its own on the surface. However, something has taken offence at the human incursion – “The Sleeper” is awakening.

While heavier on the sci-fi, Bounty Dog also has the villian(s) shrouded in mystery with just a dash of the same political edge to it as Angel Cop. Both titles are generous with the amount of action they provide, though the characters in Bounty Dog are somewhat deeper than in Angel Cop.
