Super criminals and mafia families have become more powerful than any police force in the oceanic city-nation of Judoh. That’s why the government built Android J, a cybernetic crime-fighting machine destined to rid Judoh of the criminal element. Together with his partner, Daisuke Aurora, the most dangerous criminals will soon find themselves on the run. The mob won’t take this sitting down, though, and as the criminals toughen up and the stakes keep rising, J finds himself matched in more than one battle.

I honestly didn't like Daisuke, the main character. Too two dimensional and not very interesting. One of those characters that is never surprised and always seems to be talking with his eyes closed and his arms crossed. The main antagonist, Clair, is just like him and only became interesting in the last act. And the "Tips to being Man" given --constantly-- by J, were at sometimes funny, but ultimately annoying.
Everyone else however, was entertaining. Kyoko, Monica, Antonia, and Ken are all part of the core group that lend something to the active story per episode, and to the overall story arc, which has a "twist" villain ending, but I saw it half way through. Plus the eventual stand-off between Daisuke and J is painfully obvious in episode one.
It's a good series as a whole, but very slow and waits until the last quarter to become interesting.
The characters are only so so.
The visuals are okay when not in CG.
And J's steam "howl" haunts me in my nightmares.
As far as bad qualities go, the show used too much 3D CGI. I am very put off by CGI because it never looks nearly as cool and it never fits well with the regular animation.
