Editorial Reviews

America - land of freedom. But on its dark streets prowl those who abuse its freedoms, and nowhere is as crime-ridden as New York City. It is the job of the New York Police Department to protect society from the evil on its streets, and this is the tale of New York's finest cops, serving in its toughest district - the 34th Precinct. Into this melting pot of crime and corruption comes a raw young recruit named Diazaburo. His new partner is one of the most notorious cops on the force - known to co-workers as Mad Bull, due to his ultra-violent form of peace keeping!

I have been trying to get this full feature for more than 20 years.

This is the full classic and it is classic goodness.
Now for those who have not watched classic anime there are some things you should be aware of:
1. There is plenty of graphic violence. This is well beyond what you standard get in modern anime.
2. There is real fan support. This means nudity not today's "the beach episode" and "the hot springs swimsuit episode".
3. The dub is not good. People trying to do New York accents to laughable ends. Don't worry you will get used to it and may even like it. The voice acting also just plain feels different that what you get today.
4. Computer software is not used to match the dub to the mouths so it sometimes is off.
5. And yes, it is classic hand drawn animation. It has a warmth we do not get in the soulless computer assisted stuff we get today. However being hand drawn it will not be as smooth at time as what a new viewer expects.

Needless to say this is not an acceptable substitute for Nemo or Monsters Inc, when trying to keep kids out of your hair.

This movie follows a tradition that many classic anime did back in the day, rip off American cinema/TV (just like today Hollywood now feeds off Japan).
You have the badass American cop with a heart of gold and his Japanese partner. There is comedy, unintentional comedy, and blood shed galore. There is fan support like the traditional shower scene and there is enough additional nudity and risque scenes to make the creators of Queens Blade blush.
Exploding heads? This anime has got them! Concealed hand grenades? You bet! A hilarious view of America? Oh yeaaaah!
Plot wise the feature is terrible and we expect that. In fact we crave the cheese.

Mad Bull 34 is a portrait of gritty 1970s NY policing as portrayed by several Japanese anime writers who'd likely never been to NYC, clearly watched too many Dirty Harry movies, and did far too many drugs. The story barely matters as it's mostly an excuse for violent action sequences, various incoherencies, and rape, but it involves a straight-laced rookie cop and his new partner, Sleepy Estes - who "doesn't play by the rules".

MB34 is somewhat notorious among anime collectors for its misogyny and extreme violence. There's at least 3 rapes per episode and one of the 4 episodes in the 4 part OVA is called "Hit and Rape". Sleepy actually runs the town prostitution racket too. The level of violence borders on Fist of the North Star levels. Despite Sleepy shooting about half the unarmed criminals in every episode, in the head, before even announcing he's a cop, he only gets investigated once "for excessive force". None too shockingly, this anime was brought to you by many of the same people as Crying Freeman, which makes sense because it's basically like Lethal Weapon if it was made by the makers of Crying Freeman, on drugs.

That's not to say this is at all bad. In a certain bizarre way, despite the rampant to the point of hilarious misogyny, outrageously bad localization, it's a very fun anime that reminds you of why you watched anime as a kid - it was comics for teens and grownups before comics had grown up. It was when anime was fun and didn't take itself too seriously.

Recommended for 80s anime buffs.

Not for kids due to violence and nudity, definitely adult but not Hentai. Wish it was longer but story line was simple and had a satisfying ending.

This 1 is for fans of early -old school anime-it is set in a NYC that no longer exists back before Guiliani cleaned up Gotham.It is a gritty cop tale & worth it for fans of this genre

A funny as hell anime about two policemen! The violence and sex are over the top and that is what makes this series a must have.
