A manga series
by Kousuke Fujishima
. "Taihou Shichau Zo!
" was the original Japanese
title. I believe it was his first series; if it wasn't, it certainly was his first widely circulated
title, and was what first won him fan
s. It was later made in to an OAV anime
series, and later still a TV series
. The animation
quality, particularly in the OAVs, is quite good and worth watching.
It concerns the members of the Bokutou police precinct in Tokyo, specifically Natsumi Tsujimoto and Miyuki Kobayakawa. Fujishima takes a mostly traffic cop angle with the title, so don't expect any kind of serious police work. It's pretty silly, but for motorheads like me, the detail he puts into the mechanical designs of the myriad cars, motorcycles, paintball guns, and anything else with moving parts is pretty neat.
Good clean fun.
