In the futuristic city of Judoh, some dangers are too much for the police--they require Special Force agent Daisuke Aurora and his robot partner J! When the city's massive underworld is rocked by upheaval, Daisuke and J must struggle to contain gang bosses battling for supremacy. But is there more going on than meets the eye? Who is behind the sudden rise of a previously minor politican to the top of Judoh's underground? How are the mysterious Celestials, who watch Judoh from above, involved? And what secrets lie hidden in Daisuke's own past--and inside J's memory?

The Big O

The Big O

Forty years ago the citizens of Paradigm lost all of their memories, and live their lives without any knowledge of their past, or any hope for the future. Roger Smith is a man who performs the much needed task of negotiator in Paradigm. He provides his services to the wealthy with the help of a peculiar android named Dorothy and his mechanically inclined butler Norman. When greater evil arises, he calls on his magnificent relic of Paradigm's past, the Megadeus Big O. With Big O at his side, Roger Smith may be Paradigm's only hope of surviving in this new world without memories.

Both series have a distinctive American feel to them. The witty dialogue, the self-confident hero and baddies that seem ripped from the pages of a pulp magazine create an atmosphere not usually seen in Japanese works. The early detective-style episodes are a joy to watch, especially when you reach the second half of the series and realize everything is connected.
