Having become the financial capitol of the world, Tokyo is now a prime target for those that want to destabilize the world economy. To combat the rising terrorist tide, the Special Security Force is established. Tensions are high however, with both a vigilante anti-terrorist group called “Hunters” and the mysterious dr. Ichihara and his human enhancement project…
If you watch closely and listen to what is being said, you can see here the beggininnings of Ghost In The Shell. Secret government agency concerned with internal security. Agents being cyberized. Government departments at war with one another due to internal corruption. Sound familiar? I watch a lot of the old anime and you can find a lot of story origins. Watch Gundress and see what I mean. Angel Cop is violent. But we aren't all kids here. The animation is old but well done for the time. I gave sound a low score because the version I watched had an out of sync sound track. All in all an enjoyable title, but not maybe something you would invite all of your pals to watch.
I didn't expect to like Angel cop as much i did,though what i enjoyed the most was how political it is.It portrays a world where japan's economy reached its peak and the jews weren't happy about that so they payed communist terrorists to destroy the country and scare investors away to america where they control everything.Those terrorist attacks lead to the creation of special members of the law enforcement who are allowed to kill their target,one of those members is Angel the main character who was first a heartless killer who only cares about getting her job done. Angel cop has all the tropes you would expect from a similar anime,but what makes it better is the questionable morality of the characters,the jewish schemes getting exposed and the meaning of justice especially in relation to nationalism. The Special Security Force members are all patriotic and are ready to die for japan but they later realise that the goverment they're trying to protect has sold the country out which changes their sense of justice loyal to peace instead of just being goverment dogs.We also see the development of Angel from a cold sociopath to a somewhat empathic friend who cares about her partners.
This is one very Violent series that people forget about, and there is a reason. This series was created around the time when anime was first getting dubbed in the Western World and there was a belief that anything animated was for kids. The Dubbing Company wanted to show that this series is not for kids but for adults by adding huge amounts of curse words into the English script.Story: I gave this series a big score due to the fact that this series does something that no other series has/have done before: Being Pro-Japanese, Anti-Semitic, and Anti-American. The Company that licensed this OAV Series had to change the ending dialogue because it was first about how the Jews in America have bought the Japanese Goverment and plan to turn Japan into a Nuclear Wasteland after they have gotten their greedy paws on all the money. (In this series, Japan is leader of the global economy and they have all the money of the World) In the Dub: It is the Americans.Animation: The Background detail is great. As for Humans: This series was made for adults and thus there are no cute Girls or anything like that. All the characters look like the following: Sound: A Decent Dub full of F Words and 80's music, very bad 80's music. Sub: Far Less and better.Characters: This is nothing but an action series MADE FOR ADULTS. It is the same as an action Movie, so there is only Basic characterization. The only person I liked was Angel and that was because she was tough Cookie. Other than that, it is like the Characters are just reading off a Script with no emotions at all.Overall: I recommend you watch much better action series and leave this series as it is, forgotten. Overall: I recommend you watch much better Old action series such as Iria: Zeiram the Animation and leave this series as it is, forgotten.
