Mad Bull 34 may not be the best anime in terms of storyline, but it is sure as hell entertaining.It is an OVA consisting of 4 1 hour long episodes.It was released by Manga Entertainment on VHS back in the 90's.The episodes are available on youtube(as of now), however it desperately needs a DVD release.The profanity,sex,over the top violence and hilarious one liners make this an extremely entertaining anime.The premise of the show is of two cops.One is a young rookie who wants to play by the rules, and the other is a fat, sex addicted, trigger happy police veteran.They both solve crimes such as rape and murder while trying to deal with each other.Mad Bull 34 is a great anime about the NYPD and it needs to be re-released uncut along with Violence Jack and other entertaining but not exactly thought-provoking animes.
