Excellent Manga

on 12/8/2012

I was never really in to bubblegum crisis on whole but when i bought this dvd the dark story led me in how they had the enviroment plot and the boomers eating away pieces of humanity i really liked this dvd cant say more or less for the bubblegum crisis but i did end up buying 2040 and the first one i also recommend Parasite Dolls as a add on with this for bubblegum fans or anime lovers that have the grit for a dark story with some adult themes

Sexist & racist in that unconscious Japanese way with over the top violence and just a dash of nudity AD Police does not fail to entertain. The first two tales are gripping & inventive if a little hard to follow (Character development is minimalist at best) with great moral arks about the downfall of artificial parts and artificial people.

Product Overview

Relentless technological development has resulted in the creation of Boomers, artificially intelligent androids with the potential to free mankind from physical labor. But anything that can be used can also be misused...

AD Police rookie Leon McNichol gets his first lesson in the school of hard choices when he and his partner Geena are given the job of tracking down the cause of several incidents of Boomers running amuck. They soon discover that a defective Boomer is illegally reactivating Boomers which have been scrapped - and one of these Boomers has a vivid memory locked in her mind; the image of the man who destroyed her. The image of Leon McNichol.

ReviewSource Fast Forward Theater
Review Despite a third episode that is almost a scene for scene remake of Robocop this is one of the sharpest Anime's around...Sexist and racist in that unconscious Japanese way with over the top violence and just a dash of nudity AD Police doesn't fail to entertain. The first two tales are gripping and inventive if a little hard to follow (Character development is minimalist at best) with great moral arks about the downfall of artificial parts and artificial people...The third episode is a letdown and quite skippable. Tons of action keeps AD Police moving even when the story seems to stall. The plots of the first two episodes are also filled with surprise and that delightful "I always wished someone would do that" feeling...The animation is very well done with different styles mixing it up to great effect. At only 3 episodes however it left me wanting more. That's usually a good sign.
