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?

Both of these anime are about androids bugging out and harming humans until a special task force is called in. While AD Police has a larger task force, Joker is only one person. If you want more cyborg fighting action, more drama, and more questioning what it means to be human, try and pair these two.

Both of these series feature androids that end up glitching and going on a rampage and in both series the government (presumably) calls in a task force or special agent to deal with the problem.

If you like so 'bad' they are 'good' 90s ova's look no further than these 2 titles. Both involve similar main characters trying to solve issues/feelings with a mysterious person they have encountered.

If you have a thing for science lairs full of test tube humanoid creatures that won't hurt either in enjoying both of these titles.

Ai City

Ai City

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!

Similar biopunk settings. Ai city was far more entertaining for me but might as well try the other. Both animes look at genetical engineering as the cause for several issues. Nothink groundbreaking, just old and similar.

8 Man

8 Man

You can destroy his body, but you can't keep a good crimefighter down. The villainous Saucer Lips learned the hard way when he killed police officer Peter Brady. Little did he know he actually would create his greatest foe, the bionic superhero known as...Tobor, the 8th Man!

I agree
