They needed a hero So they built HEAT GUY J. Android J was secretly built by the government as a special agent to combat crime in the oceanic city-nation of Judoh. While J initially appears to be human, the illusion quickly disappears in clouds of scorching steam when he fights. Together with his partner, Daisuke Aurola, the most dangerous criminals will soon find themselves on the run -from the underground legend known as the Heat Guy! From the director and staff that created the Escaflowne Movie comes a brand-new, action oriented cop drama! Airing in Japan in early 2003. Animation production by Escaflowne staff!
J is a cyborg of almost unlimited power and the partner of laid-back, irreverent Daisuke Aurora, who prefers popping wheelies on his super-motorcycle to filing reports. Although their duty as officers of the City Management Safety Agency is to prevent future crimes, J and Daisuke get caught in the mob warfare ripping through the city-state of Judoh. The accession of maniacal Claire Leonelli as the leader of a major crime family unleashes this savage power struggle. J rescues Daisuke from Leonelli bombers and beast-faced humans who have been genetically and surgically deformed as punishment for their crimes. The filmmakers seem to be trying to recapture the stylish noir tone of Cowboy Bebop, but Daisuke has neither the charm nor the vulnerability that make Spike Spiegel so appealing, and the results remain less than the sum of the parts. (Rated 13 and older: violence, grotesque imagery) --Charles Solomon
