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.

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 read more

Sushi Police follows the young Alchemist Edward Elric, as he desperately seeks out a mythical stone to restore his... Oh wait, wrong show, let's try this again.
Sushi Police is actually a social satire/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 determined its authenticity. Those that pass this secret inspection would receive the approval to be listed as 'authentic', as well as read more

Story 7/10: So Sushi police is about these three government guys (one’s a robot) who listen to the cries of untraditional sushi. Then they hunt down and stop the chefs that are making them. By the way, when I say untraditional sushi, I mean things like chilli sushi, zombie sushi, just anything that isn’t 100% legit Japanese. And you know what, it was pretty damn funny to watch. I mean sure, there’s some mad pacing issues and the 3 minute length of each episode really messes with the continuity of the story because this anime tries to fit so much into such a short read more

What makes sushi fresh and delicious, you may ask? What dark secrets about sushi lies deep in the ocean, you may ask? All of your questions will all be answered in this anime!

Sushi Police tells you a tale about three odd policemen who loves sushi and anyone who violates sushi (by for example, adding non-sushi-related ingredients) will be met by brute force. They always overdo their way of handling situations, making it hilariously silly and unexpected. I mean, who else uses wasabi guns except the sushi polices? Obsession is so much more dangerous than I thought, but I have no objections!
