Synopsis

OVA based on the Joker manga by artist Katsumi Michihara (道原かつみ) and writer Yuu Maki (麻城ゆう).

Joker is a genetically engineered shape-and-gender-shifter, who created as part of a Special Police Task Force and fights crime of all kinds, but he/she also fits in a little romance around the edges.

Has some romance in this, so you can see what is love (baby don't hurt me)
