Reviewer: Rowena Lim Lei 12/16/2000

Welcome to Bokuto Station, where the prettiest policewoman is actually *gasp* a man, and where the officers are always more than happy to help. Getting past their initial differences, Natsumi and Miyuki are now happy partners. From pursuing traffic offenders to trying to apprehend a car theft ring, the girls get a load of the different aspects of being a police officer. Picking up where the OAV series leaves off, more insights are provided with regards to our two heroines' personal lives as well as their relationships to the people around them. You'e Under Arrest TV brings you more "serious" cases to solve, more action, and definitely more humor.

I must admit, after watching the You're Under Arrest OAVs, I wasn't the least bit excited about the TV series. After all, the OAVs were bordering on the brink of dullness. But after watching the hilarious first episode of You're Under Arrest TV, I was hooked.

For one thing, a lot of very interesting characters are added to the roster. To enumerate a few there's Aoi, the gorgeous policewoman / man; Sena, Ken Nakajima's excitable teenage stepmother; Tokairin, the cute mountain officer who seems to fancy Natsumi. Characterization is given more emphasis now, and are not limited to just Natsumi and Miyuki. I also liked the fact that there is a lot more humor here compared to the OAVs. Of course, while You're Under Arrest TV has some eps that'll have you laughing out loud, there are also a few eps that you can afford to miss (in short, *yawn*).

The art and animation are very good, and almost as spectacular as the OAVs. The only main difference being the OAVs are drawn in a more detailed manner. The soundtrack of You're Under Arrest TV is also worth mentioning, as it features some really good songs. All in all, You're Under Arrest TV has more of everything -- characters, humor, action, and even romance. Take out the boring eps and it would have garnered a 4-star rating.

You're Under Arrest refers to each individual episode as "files" (as in police files). The OAVs feature File nos. 1-4, and the TV series kicks off with File no. 5. There are 51 files in all.
