Editorial Reviews

The year is 2016. The place is New Port City. The Tank Police are still waging a desperate war on crime, and their tactics are still highly questionable. Mayor Weatherby is trying to pass a bill banning certain weapons from the city, which makes her a target of the Dai Nippon Geiken Corporation, who are now manufacturing mobile weapons that even the Tank Police may not be able to stop. Dai Nippon Geiken is also connected with the murder of Leona Ozaki's former partner, Charon Ishira, making the battle all the more personal for the Tank Police's number one officer, who will stop at nothing to avenge her partner. But can she pay the high price revenge calls for?

4.0 out of 5 stars Maybe a tad too serious... March 3, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The events set in New Domionion Tank Police anime seem to be after those in the Dominion: Tank Police manga. The Puma sisters are living on the streets, Loena is fighting small time hoods and the Major wants to be reelected. Right when you think things might get boring, there's a virtual drug for computers, terrorists are attacking the city and there are war robots, that look very much like "Fuchikoma" units from Ghost In The Shell, running about.
I like it, but it wasn't as good as the earlier Acts. 6 episodes, 180 minutes of action, but not much humor. Extras include Tank Police Files, cool fold out poster, previews and fan club info.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Is Better! September 18, 2005
Format:DVD
New Dominion Tank police is a six episode mini-series continuing adventures of the Tank Police. The character, Leona is fighting and arresting crooks on the streets of Newport. Newport City's mayor disapproves the use of tanks to fight crime. The police chief is angry about the destruction and lawsuits caused by the tanks. The department also goes up against high-tech hackers, a gang of bank robbers, terrorists, an evil corporation and a new deadly robotic tank which is both agile and powerful running rampant in Newport. There was a lot going on in the story but they flowed so well that it was easy to understand and follow. This series has good pacing and character development and this time the Tank Police did some actual police work and tried to solve crimes (something which was missing in the old series). In my review of the old Tank Police series I pointed out the fact that the use of tanks to fight crimes seemed silly to me, BUT this time since the New Dominion Tank Police faced greater threats, the use of tanks felt more justified. It evened the playfield when they went up against villains. The character designs look similar to the old series although some changed a bit and became less attractive and detailed; the Puma Sisters look thin and ugly. The animation quality was also a notch below fluid, but still good. I was very happy that the character named "Buaka" (from the old series) did not return in this new mini-series; because I hated that dope. There was a good balance of story and character development, everything was better fleshed out and contained good action sequences, which contributed to my overall enjoyment of this New Dominion Tank Police. I recommend it to anyone that enjoys action/comedy anime or police stories. Good for teens and adults. Ends on Episode six. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Oldie, But I Enjoyed It December 4, 2003
Format:DVD
I saw this when I was a kid. It was a great movie! I got laughs out of it!
Here some info on the the DVD:
Newport City, 2010 - In a desperate attempt to stop the swelling tide of rampant crime and urban terrorism plaguing the city, the government forms a special task force - The Tank Police - with the firepower to combat the high-tech crime syndicates. Squad Leader Leona Ozaki, together with her radically modified tank Bonaparte, battles alongside her fellow officers to bring down the insidious Dai Nippon Gaiken Corporation which threatens to overwhelm the city with a new virtual drug. But with high explosive artillery at her disposal, can Newport City handle the destruction and chaos caused by her own defenders?
Japan's manga legend Masamune Shirow (Appleseed, Black Magic M-66, Ghost in the Shell) personally oversaw the production of this exciting series to ensure that the anime remained faithful to his original 1992 manga books. Shirow delivers a darkly comic vision of a future overrun with fast and furious mecha, cybernetically enhanced humans and rouge androids.

4.0 out of 5 stars A retrospective appraisal... February 9, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I`m really glad that this series has finally been released on DVD in a single volume. I remember watching this when it was released in England a long, long time ago now (oh, that makes me feel old!). It`ll also be nice to have it in both subtitled and dubbed versions. I remember enjoying the voices in the English dub when I was younger, but then I was a kid - and therefore stupid - and I can imagine that they`ll probably grate nowadays!
I have to say I always enjoyed these six episodes far more than the original series. Maybe it was because the animation seemed a little cleaner, but I think it`s more likely that the story was more engaging. Although the episodes may at first seem disjointed and unconnected, they actually form one whole story. The action is exciting, the characters (by the master of simultaneously intense and farcical characters, Masamune Shirow) are likeable, and the finale when they get their man is really satisfying.
Highly recommended viewing.

I've seen a bunch of anime (from Akira to 3x3 eyes to evangelion) and i thought the animation was good and it even became interesting at points, it is a series to look into.
