(This is the prequel to the anime Bubblegum Crisis which I am not familiar with so I can't compare the shows, but simply review it as a stand alone product.) Set in MegaTokyo in the year 2046, the police force has been broken into two groups, Normal police (who deal with your everyday crimes), and AD Police (who deal with the Boomers.) Boomers are robots or people who have cybernetically enhanced their bodies by 70% and are committing criminal acts.
The extremely short series (only three episodes) deals with Normal Police officer Leon becoming an AD Police officer and what it is like to be a member of AD police.
AD Police is a very dark and grim look into the future. A feel of Blade Runner meets Robocop runs through this story, but with such a dark feeling that I couldn't really enjoy it. Plenty of blood and guts and creepy imagery to really visually impress, but just a little too nasty for my tastes.
** Out of ****
