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?
This is a precautionary tale on qhy humans should not create androids that look exactly like humans. It's... it's a bad idea, ok? Story: The episodes are individual stories about an advanced society where there are androids, cybernetic body replacements, and full-on cyborgs. But the problem is that none of these are working the way they should, so a specialized group of police has to take cre of things... to mixed results. The weird blend of sexual overtones, cyber punk, and science fiction made for an odd viewing. Animation: The animation is not bad for it's time. It's a bit overly shaded, and the movement sequences aren't the best, but for being from 1990, it is definitely similar to a lot that came out around that time. However, by today's standards, it leaves a lot to be desired. Sound: Probably the best thing about this anime, hands down. Characters: The main characters get a little bit of backstory and depth, but not as much as the important side characters per episode. Granted, how much depth you can give a murderous, masochistic fembot? Or a cyborg who is more machine than man? Apparently, enough that the storyline keeps going. Should you watch this? No. Go watch the original Ghost in the Shell instead. The movie, not the TV series. This review brought to you by the DAMC
I don't know why the ratings are so bad as this OVA is much better than the original series on which it is based. The stories are dark, grim, gory and overall much more interesting. There is no main character but recurring chracters that are the focus of the episode or serve as coadjuvants. The animation is very good and the character design makes it look even better. I would definitely recommend this series, it is a must see!
Story: First of all, let me ask you this: Do you know what Bubblegum Crisis is? In italics because this is a very important question. Now, assuming you do, because I assume you to be a just person and not a total slacker who hasn't seen it and is watching an OVA on it because some douche said you should watch it, then you can tell me how it relates to said Bubblegum Crisis because I have no idea what a Crisis of Bubblegums is. I mean, I thought I did but I am confident the shit I'm thinking of is not the shit that should be the main series of this shit (Shit being subjective). Looking it up, I am correct: What I was thinking of was not Bubblegum Crisis. With that out of the way, I can tell you that this is most definitely probably maybe questionably like its TV Series counterpart: AD Police. But the OVA is probably more gritty and slightly more masochistic, which I must say was some awkward boners. But I'm getting ahead of myself, despite this being an 80s OVA and thus having titties of various quantities. Just assume this isn't a bunch of episodic shit with repeating characters and it's... relevant to its source material or original TV series? Continuity? Shit's given? You see all that? How somewhat incomprehensible it is? How pointless it is? That is what this shit is: Generally stupid and pointless. But, somewhat entertaining. It deals with hookers, robots, robot hookers, robot chicks, robot dames, robo Rambo, robo robots and robo dudes. It's about god-fearing humans cracking down on crime-committing robots and occasionally kicking the everloving shit out of them most heinously. Sometimes the robots kick the shit out of the humans back and sometimes, except a lot of the time, it gets violent. That is a trait of an 80s OVA. Know what another trait is? Titties. This is a grim, dark shit-stained world unless you're in the medical business of harvesting shit. And let me tell you, people are harvested. Good people and hookers. Prostitutes and guttersnipes. Gutter-rats and people who can't repay their debts. Ha! Organ harvesting. So you know that it's a PG-13 show, or 18+. Jolly good fun! Actual-actual plot, I have no idea. Sometimes it's confusing, sometimes it's simple. You can get the gist of it easily. Animation: Aside from the obligatory titties, it has some good violence. Pretty brutal at times and there is some blood. Not as much as you'd expect, but there's still blood. Think there was a butt or two and my favorite, robosexual activities. Girls humping all on robots and in the first episode, a smoking hot babe that the dude should have totally banged. It's 80s schlock, how can it possibly age? Sound: This is divided between "80s music" and "All the other shit that just fuck everything else because holy shit that music is fucking awesome". First off, fuck everything else. Second, the music is pure 80s. The OP is the fucking tits! It screams 80s where the only bad part about it is two-fold: Not enough synths and some sound effects going on in the background. The rest of the music is pure 80s cheese and absolutely great. Oops, forgot I watched this dubbed. Dubbed needed to be cheesier and have far more narm. Quite poor fair. Characters: At this point, you probably don't give a shit about the characters, and neither do I. Maybe for the sexy dame in the first episode, the CEO in the second and Timmy in the third. Tommy? MD Geist. Overall: Man I love 80s OVAs! They got titties, violence and wanton nudity with excessive blood and very little plot! And if they're one whole episode, an incomprehensible absolute bullshit fuck all ending. This was pretty much all of the relevant bits, as it more or less ended reasonably. You know, to 80s OVA standards. It's actually kinda fun if you watch it in a group but feel free to go subbed.
