Storyline

Rookie police officer Daizaburo "Eddie" Ban joins New York's 34th precinct, where he is partnered up with John Estes, also known as Sleepy to his friends and Mad Bull to everyone else. Mad Bull usually solves crimes using extreme violence and very unpoliceman-like behavior which always gets him in trouble with the 34th precinct and his partner. Despite Mad Bull's questionable methods for solving crime he always has a good reason for what he does, and together he and Daizaburo try to make New York a safer place for everyone.

Totally politically incorrect but great!!!
27 April 2001 | by (NZ - Palmerston North) – See all my reviews

God only knows how the japanese view the NYPD but I'm sure they're nothing like this (well mostly anyway). Corrupt cops who delight in dispensing vigilante justice a la Charles Bronson seem to make up the majority of the force here and Mad Bull is the best of a bad bunch although he has a heart and only deals out his particular brand of justice to those scumbags that deserve it you can't help but feel that shooting first and........well, not even bothering to ask any questions later is a bit over the top but hey OTT is what Mad Bull's all about and it's bloody well enjoyable.

Full of top notch graphic violence action and comic moments, this is like the anime version of Lethal Weapon only more so.

Definately one of the better manga's around, give it a shot, at the very worst you'll at least be entertained.
