Synopsis

In the city of Judoh, Claire Leonelli has inherited leadership of the Mafia group "Vampire" following the death of his father. To keep Claire's and other criminal activities in check, the city's Bureau of Urban Safety has Special Services Division operative Daisuke Aurora and the super android codenamed "J" (whose identity is apparently kept in secrecy, as androids are banned in the city). With both of them around, crime now has little room to breathe in Judoh.

If you ever gain the slightest bit of interest to watch this show, WATCH IT. I was skeptical at first, due to the subpar-looking character designs, wonky name, and typical sounding synopsis. However, it only took about 10 minutes of the first episode to completely hook me on the series. The show completely blew all my expectations out of the water.

The art is great. You might be skeptical at first, but the style flows very nicely in the show. The character designs are from the same person behind Escaflowne. There are some very well-animated scenes throughout the show, and read more

Heat Guy J is one of the most excellent series I've had the pleasure of viewing and exceeded my expectations based on the reviews I've seen. It's basically in the detective/action genre that's set in the future, in a unique environment where cities are divided and dependent on a race of people that provide the technology for air and water, and there are also people living outside of this city in the underground and in the forests avoiding the people in the main city. The main character is a detective of sorts who's partner is a robot "J" that assists him in his quests. read more

Heat Guy J is an anime created by director Akane Kazuki. It was one of Satelight Studio's early productions. This will be their second anime I look at. The first being Sousei no Aquarion, an entirely bland offering. Will this one be any better? Let's take a look and find out.

Story:

In the future, mankind is living largely confined to large cities not because of man eating giants but because their electric and water purification grids only function in certain areas and there's only a small group that still understands how the technology works. In the city of Judoh, Daisuke Aurora works for the city's special read more

It is always satisfying to see a show with a lackluster start end on a strong note. Such is the case with Heat Guy J, a show that at first wallows in tired buddy cop hijinks, but ultimately proves to be a worthy watch in the long run.

The story follows Daisuke, a young smart-mouth cop and member of Judoh City's Special Services Bureau, and his android partner, J. Together they work to prevent crimes from happening in Judoh, under the supervision of Daisuke's older brother Shun. Daisuke and J have their hands full as the streets of Judoh are crawling with crime, from terrorists to read more
