Tsujimoto Natsumi Kobayakawa Miyuki

Taiho Shichauzo!
(You're Under Arrest!)

genre: comedy / action / drama / romance

They're Cosmically Cute... They're Catastrophically Charming... And They're Itching to tell you... "You're Under Arrest!"

What do you get when you mix a beautiful, data-gathering analytical type with a motorbike-loving tomboy-type with near inhuman strength? Well, not a perfect partnership, that's for sure... But partners they are, in Japan's largest city, and they face off against hot-rodded Minis, Lancias and sometimes even bad rumours. Kobakawa Miyuki and Tsujimoto Natsumi are members of the Bokuto Precinct of the Highway Patrol; their job to keep the streets of Tokyo safe for the millions of residents of the megalopolis.

A four-part OAV series, released by AnimEigo is available in North America. Based on a manga series by Fujishima Kosuke, the translated manga is available through Dark Horse Comics, and the TV episodes are rumoured to be in the works for North American release.

[ rated g ]

Suitable for Family Viewing - No profanity, no sex, and only minor slap-stick violence. The occasional off-colour remark, but it's far less offensive than 80% of the shows on TV. The TV series isn't quite as clean, and might be considered Parental Guidance Advised with its depiction of everyday life in the big cities of Japan, albeit in a light-hearted way. A running gag also involves a cross-dressing police officer, resulting in many embarrassing situations.
