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 is named after the term coined by the Washington Post for the officials that inspect overseas Japanese restaurants to make sure that they are serving "real" Japanese food.

Preliminary (9/13 eps)
I feel the need to write this review since I believe many people are greatly misinformed when it comes to this series and don't understand what the purpose of the show is.

Sushi Police is a social commentary/satire of Japanese nationalism, based off true events. In 2006, Japan's Minister of Agriculture had ate at a Japanese restaurant in Colorado, and had noticed that sushi was served alongside Korean BBQ beef. He was outraged at this, claiming that the restaurant was inauthentic and didn't do Japanese culture justice. To prevent the growth of these type of establishments, he proposed an idea to the Japanese government: create an ...

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 ...

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 ...
