Synopsis

It is the year 2808. Three convicts are recruited as members of the Cyber Police to keep major criminal activity in Oedo (formerly Tokyo) in check. In return, their life sentences will be reduced by a few years for every mission accomplished. However, to ensure that these convicts are doing their job, the police have secured special collars around their necks. If they attempt to remove their collars or fail to meet the time limit of their mission, the collars will self-destruct.

The year is 2808 AD, and major technological advances have enabled humanity not only to travel to work in self-driven hovercars, but also to seal off the planet's most dangerous criminals in a maximum security penitentiary which differs from our contemporary 21st century versions in just one respect: it's in space.

Thus, along with a rocking guitar riff to introduce the absurd acronym title ("Oriental Electric Darwinism Oasis 808", apparently), we are introduced to our three protagonist anti-heros: Sengoku, a hardened criminal who must have decided at an early age to commit as many crimes as humanly possible, currently serving a sentence of 375 years for read more

When bad guys are forced to do good in a futuristic city, fighting their fellow criminals, cybernetic creations, and even synthetic immortals, you get Cyber City.

Lets start with the plot. The idea is simple, three cyber criminals who have done more then a lifetimes worth of crimes, are given a chance to reduce their sentence and get a little fresh air. For every criminal they catch, their sentence is reduced, disobey, be blown to smithereens. Each episode follows a story centered around one of the three criminals turned cop and gives you a little insight into each one of them. Really, the story isn't very read more

Actually, I did not have any expectations about this anime for I just decided to get through with all the things I have before stuffing my hard drive with another portion of titles... so, here are the impressions.

Story. It is extremely simple. I would even say - average. There's nothing special about the situation when good guys fight bad guys (a typical action movie). The point is, these good guys themselves were bad guys not long ago. It is placed into cyberpunk setting, which now happens to be old-fashioned (take the usage of floppy disks, for ex.). However, some day the OVA used to be read more

I went into this expecting delightfully generic, violent 80s stuff like Devil Man or Angel Cop, but unfortunately with overly long, uneventful hour-long episodes and mostly lazy animation, it falls on the decidedly "un-delightful" side of generic. The hilariously bad dub can make it watchable, though. "Get lost. You wouldn't know a goddamn vampire if one jumped up and bit you on the end of your fuckin' dick. So just get off my back."

Recommendations

Similar in making the 3 seperate cyber police stories like it had in some '80s '90s OVAs. Shocking cyberplots, sick villians and lots of dark traits and betrayal wich the future police has is hands full on. Recommended for sci-fi fans.
Similar concept/scenario of criminals working for government

Both are set in a dark cyberpunk future where crimes involving technology became a really serious problem. They also have similar character designs. It's a little bit more violent than Cyber City Oedo though.
Both old school cyberpunk OVA. In addition, they are both part of Manga Entertainment's cyberpunk collection.
Both of these movies are directed by the brilliant Yoshiaki Kawajiri. Oedo has a dark city setting just like Wicked City. Wicked has, of course, way more sexual events, but their animation are very alike. If you like one you will enjoy the other.
They both are full of cyberpunk, science-fiction entertainment with very appealing and exciting characters. They also have amazing animated scenes to strongly compliment their stunning futuristic settings, and storylines that will keep your eyes and mind glued. I'd recommend either of them to those who love cyberpunk entertainment. Even though Cyber City Oedo 808 is not nearly as known or gets the praise that GITS does, they both are must-see sci-fi classics in my opinion.
