Synopsis

Daizaburo Edi-Ban, a Japanese-American, joins New York City's toughest precinct, the 34th. On his first day he is partnered up with John Estes, called Sleepy by his friends and Mad Bull by his enemies, a cop who stops crime with his own violent brand of justice. Mad Bull makes no qualms about executing common thieves with shotgun blasts if they even pose a minor threat to him or anyone around them. Mad Bull also often steals from prostitutes and does incredible amounts of property damage while fighting crime. Mad Bull's unpoliceman-like behavior often puts him in hot water with his partner Daizaburo and the 34th precinct. However, despite how reckless or illegal these acts are, a good cause is always revealed (For example, Sleepy uses the money he steals from the prostitutes to fund a venereal disease clinic and a home for battered and raped women). Perrine Valley, a police lieutenant, joins Daizaburo and Sleepy later on to help them tackle more difficult cases involving the mafia and drug-running.

Mad Bull 34 is inspired by the high-action buddy cop films of the '70s and '80s.

Overview:

You may have heard of this title thanks to the efforts of people that intentionally find and review old, TERRIBLE anime like Buriedgarbage.com and Bennett the Sage. However, it is a different experience to actually witness this animated atrocity with your own eyes and hear the god awful voice acting with your own ears. Why would you ever watch such a reprehensible pile of shit? Well... TvTropes likes to call it "Narm".

Story: 2/10

The story is supposed to take lots of cliches from American cop movies and create an anime version of a 1980s action film. However, unlike Baccano which does a great job recycling and read more

I was so happy I was able to find this on dvd ( if you can't, let me know and I'll help). This is funny, with good action and interesting stories. Each episode is about 45 minutes. Violence is great and explicit. Profanity flies like there's no tomorrow and it fits this anime. Animation is typical of early 90's. Some nudity that also has it's explicit moments. Pretty good cop anime that is not afraid to be over the top wether it's violence or comedy. Very enjoyable and rewatchability is high. If you like cyberpunk, I would recommend you check this out. I don't think read more

Time to dust off the VCR and take a trip back to 1990, 'cause today I'm talking about that glorious ultraviolent cheese called Mad Bull 34! Break out the Nike Cortez, Power Shoulders, and the grunge flannel- frost your tips, mute Will Smith and eject your Lion King VHS... we've got some 90s to cover.


For the uninitiated: Mad Bull 34 was made by a company called Magic Bus... who've done *checks* literally nothing else of note. They even made some hentai once, it looks like. Amazingly, this studio has been around since the early 80s, and somehow has generated enough revenue off their titles read more

Im going to be perfectly clear . If you dont like bad movies and anime , you will find this as one of the worst animes ever made .
I you like bad movies and anime , you will find this as one of the worst animes ever made and have an experience of a lifetime .

Just like the room , princess diaries 2 , dungeons and dragons and many other movies , its one of these cases where its so bad its good . Its downright abysmal , but its absolutely worth it.
