In the near future of Tokyo, the Metropolitan Police Department forms a secret unit called "WARRIORS" to solve the many heinous crimes. The members that make up this crime fighting team are: Rio, a police officer specializing in any form of martial arts; Maya, an eagle-eyed sniper; and Lilica, a prisoner with supernatural powers. First the Warriors rev up to face a local biker gang that's been harassing local citizens. Then they confront a mobile robbing machine that chose the wrong target - Rio! The girls then must disarm a bomb - if they can find it! And finally, the crew must catch a thief that's been creating a disturbance around town.
continues the popular franchise that the OVA Burn Up
began in 1991. Lts. Rio Kinezono and Maya Jingu of the Tokyo Police Warrior Team are joined by psychic Lilica Evett as they take on robbers, motorcycle gangs, and eco-terrorists. Captain Yuji Naruo pursues Rio, and he's delighted when she rewards his attentions with karate kicks. Rio and Maya break as many laws as they enforce: they shoot people, blow up buildings, and dispense their own brand of vigilante justice. But crime and punishment take a back seat to jiggle shots, panty shots, cleavage shots, and flashes of partial nudity. There's no jiggle meter in Scramble
, as there was in Burn Up Excess
, but the silliness, slapstick comedy, and sexism are the same--which is exactly what fans of the series want and expect. (Rated 16 and older: violence, nudity, risqué humor, alcohol use) --Charles Solomon
