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.

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

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

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

I'll start by saying this Anime has a short but good in-depth story. It was entertaining, I'm rating it a 6, which is a fine on the scale, this anime series is one I picked out at random on the list and in the beginning they fill you in with a bit of detail of the personality of the main character, and then his relationship with his colleagues, and at the same time gives you some detail of what is going on around the setting of the story, all at a very slow pace.
The anime later starts developing more into the story and read more
