Tokyo Vice is an astonishingly mediocre OVA and forgettable to the point where surrounding literature and synopsis fails to even point out that its a mech anime.

Tokyo Vice (or Tokyo Project in its most recent release) is an hour-long flick that, had you never randomly come across it, you would never know existed.

If you want to find a 60 minute run of averageness when it comes to 80s anime, Tokyo Vice is the perfect pick.

The story is practically all-stock. A guy stumbles into a rock concert and hands a college ...
