Clearly this is one of the best Sci Fi action pack classics of the 80's and early 90's.
The plot: Before the Knight Sabers arrived in MegaToyko, the overworked, underfunded and outgunned AD police had to hold off a swelling tide of technological violence. Boomers, artificially intelligent androids, have the potential to free mankind from physical labor. Alas, anything that can be used can also be misused.
Konya Wa Hurricane baby!
Sexist and racist in that unconscious Japanese way with over the top violence and just a dash of nudity AD Police does not fail to entertain. The first two tales are gripping and inventive if a little hard to follow (Character development is minimalist at best) with great moral arks about the downfall of artificial parts and artificial people.
The third episode is a letdown and quite skippable. Tons of action keeps AD Police moving even when the story seems to stall. The plots of the first two episodes are also filled with surprise, and that always-delightful "I always wished someone would do that" feeling.
The animation is very well done, with different styles mixing it up to great effect. At only three episodes, however it left me wanting more. That is usually a good sign.
