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.

AD Police is the kind of show that would really benefit from being condensed into a movie or an OVA. If you stripped out about half of the dragged out scenes and needless exposition you'd have an accidentally entertaining piece. There is no denying that AD Police is bad, the only question with these kinds of shows is "can you squeeze any kind of amusement out of it?" Or as the show itself likes to phrase it, "Just how bad can things get?" Indeed, an astute observation on the part of the creators of this show. That is the question you will find yourself asking read more

Watching with an old friend I decided to take on a relatively unknown anime called AD Police, as part of the Bubblegum Crisis universe of the 80’s and 90’s. This is a franchise known for their cyberpunk roots, pitting humans against cyborgs called “Voomers” in a schlock filled premise. There's nothing less than low brow substance here, just an excuse to watch a cheesy, fast-paced action anime.

AD Police (TV), released in 1999, is the spiritual successor to the equally titled raunchy OVA released in 1990. It features a police force (AD Police) specifically assigned to combat rogue Voomers who threaten the populace. Contrary to its read more

First things first, I'm a big fan of the 80's and 90's anime.
I watched the prequel "AD Police" and comparing to that one which was darker and capturing more chaotic outlook of future, this one has a "solid" story and focuses more on police work and drama that life as a police officer in 2020 brings.
Story 8/10
I see that many complain about "same damn thing happening" well they are the police who deals with boomers gone haywire, so ofc, the base of every story is going to be just that. But as you go further, the plot thickens as they are chasing the criminal who read more

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 read more
