About AD Police Files DVD

AD Police Files set contains OVA episodes 1-3 of the anime directed by Akira Nishimori, Hidehito Ueda, and Takamasa Ikegami.

Relentless technological development has resulted in the creation of Boomers, artificially intelligent androids with the potential to free mankind from physical labor. But anything that can be used can also be misused...

AD Police rookie Leon McNichol gets his first lesson in the school of hard choices when he and his partner Geena are given the job of tracking down the cause of several incidents of Boomers running amuck. They soon discover that a defective Boomer is illegally reactivating Boomers which have been scrapped - and one of these Boomers has a vivid memory locked in her mind; the image of the man who destroyed her. The image of Leon McNichol.

This Anime was Good From the Start....

by

The graphics were a bit dated but overall was a good dvd to see. Alot of tank and mecha battles while watching it from the start. Solid plot, characters and music are really good too. Definitely, a good anime for anyones collection.

A wonderful addition to any BGC fan's collection!

A.D. Police Case Files is a nice back story on the lives and jobs of the AD Police. After watching the original Bubble Gum Crisis I enjoyed watching this as well. As always, the music is beautifuly done, the art is superb for the time frame and the stories are intoxicating. I highly recomend this mini-series to all BGC fans!

Good Prequel to the orignal BGC series

by

First this is not the the train wreck of a remake that ADV put out in the early 2000s.

What these are are a series of short stories set in the original Bubble Gum Crisis story.
Each story stands apart and does a fairly good job of bringing back the dark cyberpunk dystopian future that Bubble Gum Crisis was good for.

This series takes place prior to the formation of the "Knight Sabers" and primarily focuses on a much younger AD Police officer Leon McNichol as a rookie AD Police officer. Other stories revolve around where the line of human vs machine is really drawn.

Series came out in 1990, so for those looking for the cutesy artwork look elsewhere.. however for fans of the original BGC.. This and Crash are must haves.

Not Groundbreaking but still Good

I remember Bubblegum Crisis had a lot of spin offs but I never gave this title a chance up until now. The animation is dated and the music is too but the plot for the first two episodes are good. It doesn't take long to figure out the message behind the first two episodes but the weakest one was definitely the final episode. As for the voice acting, it depends if you like your anime dubbed or subbed. The dubbed wasn't too bad but it didn't sound natural either. It felt like they were struggling on some of the emotional moments. Overall, I'd recommend this title but I don't think you have to watch this first if you want to get into Bubblegum Crisis.

Sexual Transhumanism

by -

This anime isn't exactly smart; don't expect to find hidden philosophic wisdom but the main them is trans-humanism and sex. While BGC relied on Blade Runner aesthetic with 80s anime badass girls and Parasite Dolls focused on hardboiled noire stories, this series deals with bizarre new sexual kinks brought about in this new world.

You'll have these ideas thrown at you nonstop about people going into sexual frenzies and sexual frustration brought out in mulitple ways because of boomers or cyberization.

The problem is that the stories aren't exactly interesting, fun or have anything intelligent to say. I did like the special features on the DVD which includes Official AMVs. Unfortunately that was the only reason that I came back to this DVD. The characters, story and world (which is a lot blander than BGC) did not leave an impression.

For fans of BGC it may be worth getting to add to your collection but if you're just a general anime fan, I would skip.
