Running late on her first day as a patrol woman for the Bokuto Police Department, spunky moped rider Natsumi Tsujimoto decides to take several shortcuts, only to be chased down and cited by mechanical genius and expert police driver Miyuki Kobayakawa. Upon arrival at the precinct, Natsumi finds out that her new partner is the same woman who ticketed her earlier. At first, she doesn't trust Miyuki, but in a short period of time, they develop an unbreakable friendship that overcomes traffic accidents, reckless drivers and even the strongest typhoons to hit Tokyo.

You're Under Arrest follows the happenings of a police station and in particular those officers of the Traffic division. Aired as an OVA, this later came to be the first 4 episodes of the TV series bearing the same name. However, this review will assess it's performance as a stand-alone.

As expected from an OVA the animation quality is superb; with great detail taken in facial expression and general movement fluidity. The backgrounds are also of high detail and do not have that colour tone difference otherwise common to most televised series. Fujishima Kousuke being an avid motorsports enthusiast, made sure that You're Under read more

"This police station has been running a lot more like a soap opera," - Chief Kachou (Episode 3)

1994 was a pretty good year for anime titles. There was the Studio Ghibi film Pom Poko, a story centered around environmental issues. The Street Fighter movie, based on a wildly popular videogame series, briefly fumbled its way into the spotlight. 1994 also introduced the anime world to Marmalade Boy, a well-known school-oriented series. Finally, `94 was the year in which television networks came across a mini-series, a hidden gem if you will, titled You're Under Arrest (YUA). When people think of police shows, they conjure mental images read more

You're Under Arrest is a pretty fantastically made classic OVA that I really enjoyed. Let's go over what makes it so special.

First and foremost, I like to point out the art. There are some really great moments here & there that are just fantastically animated, and gorgeous to look at. If you're looking for some impressive Sakuga, you've come to the right place. There are a lot of slower moments where not as much happens, and those parts aren't quite as nicely animated, but the artists still keep things looking clean & consistent throughout. I think the character design is a bit typical, but it's read more

1994 was a much simpler time for anime and a lot of this stemmed from the fact anime was treated as cartoons back then rather than fantasy simulators. In today’s market, a show like You’re Under Arrest wouldn’t work. It’s rife with too much silliness and not enough cohesion, as well as a lack of the appropriate amount of fan service to appease modern anime fans. As you may remember from my Hyper Police review, I am a sucker for 90’s anime. The style, the sound, the pervasive silliness. It was a time of cute girls doing cute things while also being completely badass read more

Anime: Dirty Pair
A funny show about women saving the day.

Anime: Hyper Police
Both are good action/police comedies with a bunch of pretty girls as main heroines.

Anime: Mobile Police Patlabor
Both are action comedies that revolve around hapless divisions of the Tokyo Police department with plucky female officers as the leads.
