Synopsis:

In the year 2808, criminals are no longer just wasting space in prison cells. The Cyber Police have turned to using these “patrons” by giving them a choice. Their sentence, or to work with them to catch other criminals and knock some years off their sentence. But getting off easy isn't, as each criminal is fitted with booby trapped collar that operates on a 24 hour cycle, stopped ONLY if they capture their intended targets. As time runs out on each case, someone's head must roll... the target's, or their own!

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?

Cyber City Oedo is about criminals upholding the law in the future, while AD Police Files is about the police doing their jobs; both have good stories and action. AD Police Files gives rise to a few more recommendations as well (Bubblegum Crash, Crisis etc) but, being a bloke, AD Police is the one to go for - forget about 'feelings', we're here for the action.

Vintage cyberpunk never gets too old to hard-core rabid fans :P!

Thought the graphical appeal and the scientific side could have gotten a tad rusty, they still have plot more complex than most modern show, not to mention they at least deserve to be watched as documents.

Either anime will fill your taste buds if you're into hunting down cyber punks with little to nothing to loose in a futuristic setting that seems more complex than that of those anime that are shown today. Both tell a somewhat similar tale, but A.D. Police Files deals more in the action side of things rather than the psychological side. Either way you'll have your fill with either anime.

Armitage III

Armitage III

The year is 2179: humans and robots have colonized Mars. A newer Third-Type robot has been designed to interact undetected in human society. That is, until a man named D'anclaude discovers their secret and starts a movement to wipe them out. Armitage is a Third-Type that works for the police with her partner Ross, and now these two must rid the planet of D'anclaude and his evil plans.

Both Armitage and Cyber City are serious cyberpunk - and both have that slightly retro edge that marks classic cyberpunk. Cyber City is quite gritty and it concentrates on the task at hand; whilst Armitage builds up a bit more back story on the characters. Both are enjoyable and worth watching.

Ryvius

Two of the better classic cyberpunk OVA's that I've seen. Simply put if you like old, gritty, cyberpunk with adult themes, great action, etc, you'll enjoy both.

Bubblegum Crisis

Bubblegum Crisis

The year is 2032. Tokyo has been destroyed by a great earthquake and a new city, MegaTokyo, has risen from the ashes. Humans now live side-by-side with androids known as Boomers who perform many of the menial and laborious tasks that humans despise, but these artificial servants come with a price: they have a tendency to go haywire and attack those they were built to serve. The A.D. Police force was created to try and stop this menace, but its weapons can do little more than annoy the Boomers. Hope lies with the Knight Sabers, four young women with high-tech, armored suits and enough firepower to stop an army - but will it be enough to stop MegaTokyo's greatest threat?

Both of these anime are seminal cyberpunk viewing. They both involve a group of protagonists on the wrong side of the law working to apprehend those committing crimes. Whilst Cyber City Oedo 808 has more violence, the overall feel of the shows are very similar.

Ai City

Ai City
  • Movie (1 ep x 100 min)
  • 1986

In a dystopic and futuristic Tokyo, humanity’s genetic code has gone awry. At the forefront of the technology is Fraud, an organization conducting experiments on people such as Kei and Ai – two escaped “headmeters” with hefty psychokinetic powers. The sinister Mr. Lee wants nothing more to retrieve Ai back to his clutches, as she seemingly holds the key to immense power; Kei wants simply to keep Ai safe; and the evil Lai Lo Ching has his own master plan. Along with the help of the amnesiac headmeter K2 and a trusty sidekick, Kei must fight to protect Ai from the evils of Mr. Lee, Lai Lo Ching, and the state of the world itself!

Cyber City Oedo and Ai City are both older cyberpunk anime with an extremely similar tone and feel. Ai City is a bit more ridiculous, while Cyber City is a bit more action-packed; nonetheless, if you liked one, give the other a try.

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.

If you're a fan of cyberpunk such as in Cyber City Oedo 808, then you will love Akira. It is a classic cyberpunk anime and has outlaws who are the heroes and victims.
