Set a few years before Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040, A.D. Police chronicles the tales of Mega-Tokyo's special police division designed to control rogue Boomers in the city. A.D. Police Officer Kenji Sasaki faces a major dilemma: he loses another partner to a rabid boomer. A day after he's sent off-duty, he receives a new partner in the form of German cop Hans Kleif. Funny thing is that Kenji sucker-punched Hans at a bar the night before. Not only does Kenji face the everyday task of controlling Boomers, he has to learn to adjust with his new partner.

Mixed Feelings
I'm gonna be a little generous with this and not try to make any comparisons from the TV version of AD Police with the original OVA series that was released years prior - as there is very little comparison at all.

The story was passable - if a bit generic and almost exactly what you'd expect from your standard police show. If you enjoy the tropes associated with that kind of narrative, then you'll probably have a good time watching this in bite-sized pieces. The art and characters are kinda 'meh,' admittedly. There's nothing that really stands out about either of them. The animation ranges from ...

Unless you have serious OCD about completing the bubblegum crisis universe, dont bother with this. Seriously, I would rather have put the 4 hours I spent watching this into trap hentai.

I dont recommend this even to the biggest BGC fan out there. Ad Police (TV) doesnt have any resemblence to BCG and it doesnt do shit to expand the universe or lore. It could be something else entirely if it didnt have the name boomer and genom in it. This basically a shitty cop show. It fails to have a cyberpunk feel to it, and it also falis to have a decent noir vibe, which ...
