Future Policeman Urashiman is one of the more unique anime series to come out of the 1980's. Given that it's from that time frame, the artwork looks a little dated and the technology of the future may appear to be anachronistic compared to that of today. However, the series makes up for the flaws largely due the interactions between the antagonist (named only Fuhrer) and the protagonist (Urashiman). There is a backstory between the two that is explained in the series, but for the first half the show has a "crime of the week" feel to it.

My thought on Urashiman is that it's worth seeing if, and only if, you're a fan of Irresponsible Captain Tylor - because if you can't appreciate that, you won't appreciate this. Like Tylor, this is a parody comedy based on tropes of the period, but it's simply not as good as Kouichi Mashimo's later work and very inconsistent between episodes. The only episode really that stood out to me is #32, which has a 3 minute sequence with the best callbacks to the silent film era I've ever seen in anime: they managed to reference at least 11 specific Chaplin, Keaton, and Keystone Cops moments ...
