That's something that has to be settled soon considering that the notorious Cat Girls and their dumb male partner are planning crimes that require Leon's skill to stop.

Trivia

When Buaku starts to pass out in episode 4, he starts to mumble the first few lines of The Tale of The Bamboo Cutter; a story about an orphaned supernatural being who is found by and raised as a human. Buaku's story can be considered a much-less idealistic and violent version of this story. See more »

Goofs

In part one, the Puma Twins, Anna and Uni, perform a striptease to divert the Tank Police. They wear blue dresses and head bands, but in the close-ups of their legs and when they bump their behinds together, their dresses are of an off-white or yellow color. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
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.
Chief Of Police: Madame Mayor, you should've said that to the Council years ago when they set up the Tank Police. It's worth remembering that the percentage ...

Holy......!!!!
20 July 2006 | by neogeothecomingSee all my reviews

I stumbled across this (Act-I) by pure dumb luck and this was more than a decade ago. This was'nt even what the cover label on the tape mentioned. It amazed me. It intimidated me. It shocked me. I eventually forgot about and almost a decade later, I happened to think about it again. Then went and bought both acts. They were even better than I had experienced at first.

My only complaint is that while the Tank Police keep on going on and on about being at war with crime, warranting tanks and heavy artillery, it would seem as though they are really having a hard time with criminals. That is either never shown or is simply a lie as they appear to be taking it easy most of the time. If that bit about being in a state of war was really propaganda, it certainly has not been shown as such.

I don't think the original Japanese version could have been any where as good as the Americanized version of this. But regarding the story, there has certainly been some proper explanations lost in translation but it can be excused.
