Tokyo Highway Patrolwomen Natsumi and Miyuki get off to a bad start when Miyuki busts Natsumi for reckless moped driving on her way to work. Things get worse when they find out they're going to be partners!

A continuation of the OVA series, the adventures of Tokyo policewomen Natsumi and Miyuki continue in the You're Under Arrest TV series. It's back to Bokuto Precinct, where demented felons and bashful (but hunky) policemen abound, and where the cutest girl in the office... isn't a girl.

Hokey smokes, that was awesome. Only in the world of anime can policewomen beat out goddesses

You're Under Arrest! Its been one anime that I've been meaning to watch for years and years and have simply ignored for one reason or another. I knew all about it being the first child of Kosuke Fujishima (who also fathered another of my favorite all time franchises, Ah! My Goddess), and I had heard good things, but I just never ever bothered.

For the past week, I bothered.

Fourty-seven episodes never went by so quick. I was simply blown away at the sheer "goodness" of this series. From amazingly well read more

Here I find myself writing a review for a underrated show that from what I noticed doesn't get the love and attention that it needs. Well let's get on with it!

You're under arrest is a blast from the 90's providing everything that I wanted from this kind of show: Characters who steal your heart with their personality and charisma, jazzy ost during each episode and catchy op and ed song that makes you dance, unique animation style used during the 90's(glittering water animation is one my favorites) and finally a solid story that gives you a nostalgic feeling if you were a kid of the read more

逮捕しちゃうぞ - Taiho Shichauzo is as captivating as an unusual and nice slice of life anime based on a popular novel of the same name. The review covers both the four episodes OVA (1994-1995) and the later adapted television series (1996-1997). Old but worth to sneak a peek!

Story: Simple but profound way to portray human warmth and values (7/10)
A police comedy drama about the two patrol officers Tsujimoto, Natsumi and Kobayakawa, Miyuki and their daily adventures in the traffic department of the Bokutou police station in Tokyo. The little adventures that you might find too fluffy, but the characters are brought into some slightly thrilling read more

As you can see, my scores for each category are very high, and I haven't even watched the whole series yet, but being able to do this should really give you an idea on the quality of this series *oh, and of course, MINOR SPOILERS!*:
Story:- The story revolves around new police recruit Natsumi Tsujimoto, who arrives on her moped (this is a really personal awesome moment for me, as I want to join the police and also my only method of transport, as I live in the country, is a moped.) She gets chased by her yet-to-be-known future partner, Miyuki Kobayakawa, and they are read more
