New Dominion Tank Police 2 [VHS]
Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.

Though not as engaging as the first series, it does have it's merits, and for those who had a crush on the awfully bad-behaved Cat Sisters Anna and Uni Puma, they will be rewarded by many appearences of the badly (un)dressed duo throughout the story (I'm not sure if they're androids like in the manga, or modified humans--- there is a scene with them featuring opened cans of food at one stage, but no matter; they're still adorable/spiteful/mentally backward as ever). And of course there's plenty of techno-action from that ridiculously small "Bonaparte" tank...
An interesting series for collectors of Masamune Shirow memorabilia(Ghost in the Shell, etc.)
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.
