Sasahara Natsuki is a poor bounty hunter in a world where monsters and humans live together. Most of her cases involve monsters infringing upon the rights of humans, who are protected by law from their generally more powerful neighbors. Being half-human and half cat-beast, Natsuki straddles the two societies and tries to understand and respect both while enforcing the law. She is assisted by a werewolf named Batanen who is afraid to admit he loves her; another werewolf named Tommy; and a Kyubi fox demon named Sakura who has her own plans--which include eating Natsuki to complete her her nine tails and thereby her magical powers.

Many nineties anime, such as Hyper Police, The Slayers, You’re Under Arrest, Great Teacher Onizuka, Tenchi Muyo, etc. understood that they were cartoons and managed to balance silly moments with usually decent stories and typically ...

Although animal people are a famous anime trope it's rare to see a setting where every character is part animal and humans are the minority.

Hyper Police's world is very detailed - from the visual design that always brings new ideas of monsters, characters and mechanics, to the the dialogues that explore laws, ethics and lifestyle, it almost feels like a real parallel universe.

Some episodes focus on side characters and so you get a lot of different approaches to this world. There's a variety ensemble of at least 10 recurring characters, each unique and interesting enough to receive a spin off of its own.

Almost every character ...

Mixed Feelings
Hyper Police, Hyper Police, Radioactive Hyper Police - is tragically both misleading and nothing to do with the anime in question. My lyrical stylings aside, Hyper Police is another mid-nineties anime that I missed the first time around and which I've watched now in my continuing quest to test the operational lifespan of my eyeballs. It share's a certain mid-nineties aesthetic which newer anime fans (or even older ones who lack the myopic eye of nostalgia) may find offputting. But it’s a style I find to be quite enjoyable - probably as it’s the style of anime that was in vogue when I first started ...
