A Guilty Pleasure That Is Pure Fun!
16 October 2000 | by jmaruyamaSee all my reviews

Based on the Japanese Manga (Comic) series by Shinji Wada for Hana To Yume (Flowers and Dreams) Comics, Sukeban Deka (Female Juvenile Cop) was a series destined to be adapted for TV. The story of a young high school delinquent being recruited by a special police unit investigating juvenile crimes is oddly reminiscent of American shows such as the Mod Squad, and 21 Jump Street but the similarities ended there. This cop had a special weapon that you would not believe.a solid steel yo-yo that she would throw with the most deadly of accuracy to pummel her enemies and assailants. During its brief run from 1985 -1986 Sukeban Deka, the TV series launched the careers of its various young stars. Yuki Saito was the 1st and IMHO the best to take on the role of schoolgirl heroine Saki Asamia with Yoko Minami and Yui Asaka to follow her. This is the first movie of three to capitalize on the series and was used to bridge the second and third seasons of the series. Yoko Minami reprises her role as "the 2nd" Saki Asamia, a juvenile cop who has since `retired' and is determined to live a normal teenage life and complete her High School studies. Unfortunately for Saki trouble has an odd way of finding her as she stumbles upon a secret para-military organization that is planning to launch a coup on the Japanese Government using juvenile delinquents and school misfits as its soldiers. And wait until you get a load of their leader(Talk about implausibility!) Campy and over-the-top fun! Those who crave a serious, action story should stay clear of this series. Minami is great as Saki and Asaka is cute in her debut cameo as `the 3rd' Sukeban Deka (viewers should suspend their belief as you watch her try to take out a flying helicopter with one of her yo-yos). Soon followed by two movie sequels with Asaka as the lead and a two-part OVA (Original Video Animation) series.
