October 2007 New Anime: You are under arrest: Full Thottle

Genres: Action / Police
I've watched: 1 episode
Art style: Common

Recommended to: People like outrageous actions that completely disgard laws of physics in an anime
Recommendation level: No. And if you do like it, you shouldn't be taking anime advices from me any more, ever

Summary: About two traffic policewomen. Sequel to previous series.

Richard's rating - first impression (of 5): 3 - Not bad, but I'm not going to recommend it

Personal comments: There has been at least two series before this. I've tried to watch the original series once upon a time, but gave up before I even finished the first series. I guess my biggest problem is that while the setting is normal world, the actions are just way too "abnormal". For example, one of the trademark of the show is that one of them always tries to use her foot to slow down a car that is going at about 60 mph to a stop. I happened in the first episode of both the original series and this new series. Action scenes in it are just ridiculous. If it occurs in a fantansy world, or scifi world, or maybe an unusual setting in a normal world that the laws of physics can be bent, that's fine. But what they're trying to portrait is a normal world where the normal laws of physics would apply to everything. Yet they're pulling all these crazy stunts completely ignoring them. I really cannot recommend the series to anybody.

Verdict: Off my drive.
