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.

Surpassed my expectation!!! This is a good anime by itself and even better for classic TV standard. So If you are feeling nostalgic and want to sit down and enjoy a slow burn 90's TV anime, this could be the one on your list.

At first I thought this is just a motor fun's wet dream type of anime that I don't really care about, and the classic old TV cartoon format with self contained episodes really didn't help. And since the protagonists are two female buddy cops but set in Japan* this is probably going to be a stay true to the reality boring generic ...

逮捕しちゃうぞ - Taiho Shichauzo is an excellent slice-of-life comedy series about two female traffic cops, based on the popular manga series of the same name by Kōsuke Fujishima. This review covers both the four-episode OVA (1994 - 1995) and the later adapted television series (1996 - 1997). In my humble opinion, the series is definitely worth watching!

Preliminary (13/47 eps)
There comes a point where you just have to sit up straight and think to yourself if what you are watching is worth it. Taiho Shichau zo is one of those shows. Unfortunately.

Coming from the OVA's, I was extremely optimistic. The 4 episodes it offered were very effective at creating a wholesome series of episodes focused on the police and their work. Take the second episode, as an example, how it captured the sincere and kind personalities of the protagonists and how qualified as people they are to be in public service. Going into the TV series, I had hoped that the OVA's potential was ...
