Fresh from being transferred to the LAPD, Miyuki and Natsumi must investigate some unusual car theft incidents in their area. And when Miyuki's yellow 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is "gone in 60 seconds" (literally), the situation gets more complicated when they discover who the thief is.

No, we won't. This was god awful. The best part about it was hearing a Japanese voice actor shout out the American phrase "Oh Jesus!". There was a story, if you could call it that, ...

This is a silly action romp, redeemed by the fact that it knows it's a silly action romp.

If you're not familiar with "You're Under Arrest", all you really need to know is that it's a light-hearted police show, in the vein of "Patlabor" crossed with "Gunsmith Cats".

In this OVA, most of the cast of "You're Under Arrest" are (completely inexplicably) working in Los Angeles, where they get caught up in a ...
