Did You Know?


The name of the squadron's captain is actually pronounced and written as "Britain". However, he was referred to almost exclusively as "Captain Britain", which is a trademarked Marvel Character. Hence the name was changed to Brenten in the subtitled and dubbed version, though the comic kept it as Captain Britain. See more »


In Episode 1 (Act II), after the Tanks have left their hangar in pursuit of Buaku, the sign over the hangar reads "POLCE" instead of "POLICE" See more »

Mayoress: Why in Hell does our Police Department have to carry enough firepower to wipe out the city's population five times over? The police are here to protect the people's rights and property, not to threaten them! When innocent lives are sacrificed in the name of crime prevention, the police are no better than the hoodlums they're fighting against.

Why God why?
6 July 2006 | by (British Virgin Islands) – See all my reviews

Why did this amazing totally mindblowing series only have to last for 2 acts spread over just over 2 hours? Just when it gets better and better and more emotional, they leave the story hanging and we have go refer to the bloody comic. That itself would have just about covered 1-2 more episodes. Is that too much to ask? Its hard to believe that the Japanese were making this in the late 80s while the other parts of the world were making childish nonsense? I think even though Ghost in the Shell is much more popular, the Tank Police are closer to Shirow's heart. The follow on series, Crusher Police or New Dominion Tank police, is no way in the same league.
