Synopsis

Honda, Kawasaki, and Suzuki all comprise the elite ninth unit of the Sushi Police—a task force with the sole objective of sniffing out restaurants serving illicit or non-traditional sushi and eradicating them, no matter how insignificant their offense may be. The Sushi Police travel freely around the world in pursuit of these vile criminals day or night, with their strong sense of justice and the World Food-Culture Conservation Organization backing them. No offenders of Japan's traditional cuisine can escape their wrath!

During one of their purification missions, the Sushi Police encounter Sara—a hot, young, television reporter out to expose them and the World Food-Culture Conservation Organization for corruption. They interrogate her, but her wiles, skills, and charms allow her to easily escape from their grasp, setting off a chain of events that will lead to the true purpose of the Sushi Police being revealed.

Sushi Police was a satirical social commentary that's based on the actions of the Japanese Minister of Agriculture, Toshikatsu Matsuoka, who, upon eating at a place he deemed unauthentic for serving sushi alongside Korean BBQ, proposed an idea that would see to it that a dispatch unit of undercover inspectors would go around secretly evaluating sushi to determine its authenticity. Those that pass this secret inspection would receive the approval to be listed as "authentic," as well as sponsorship deal on a Japanese government website. And like this ludicrous idea that received huge media backlash in 2006, this too was equally panned by the few read more

A show or movie based on a very simple premise or pitch is called a "high concept piece". This is a 13 episode anime entirely based on mocking a stupid quote by a nationalist Japanese politician. Sushi Police takes thin premise to a whole new level.

On the surface, this could be a clever, little satire that mocks the growing wave of Japanese nationalism and calls for rationality through comedy. However, this would have worked better as a 5 minute SNL sketch. At 13 episodes that are 3 minutes, this is 40 minutes of the same fucking joke done OVER and OVER until they pretty much read more

Sushi police, as many have stated, is a social commentary but we don't care about that, most of the reviewers here have also stated the facts. We want a good anime to watch, so is it good? Not really would be the short answer.

The characters are bland with no personalities. They are just stereotypes to go with the story and provide jokes here and there. As far as character development goes, it doesn't happen a lot but not saying that it is totally out of the anime. Since the episodes are only 3 minutes 30 seconds long, it is hard to cram personalities into read more

Sushi police is a gag show parodying a comment once made by a Japanese politician that there should be a government agency that evaluates sushi places overseas as authentic or not. More broadly the show also makes fun of Japanese nationalism.
The animation is mostly 3d with some 2d bits; even though the character design isn't very pleasing to look at and some of the textures are pretty off; despite those problem which is common to 3d television animation, there's a lot of genuinely good sight gags where the animators take advantage of the medium, and the movement is dynamic enough that most of the read more
