Synopsis: After the year 2034, crime and violence in Tokyo have escalated to a point where the police can no longer handle things by themselves. Those who can afford it turn to private security companies for protection. Tokio Private Police is one such company. Noriko Ibuki is part of the Tokio Private Police force. Her team-mates include the mecha freak Yasuo, the sultry nymphomaniac Kayoko, and the big bruiser Isamu. The thing is, most of Noriko's colleagues (and even her superiors) seem to think of nothing but carnal pleasure. It's a problem for Noriko because a bad first experience has lead her to fear and abhor sex. Can Noriko hold this job and finally get over her phobia?
Review: Tokio Private Police's plot can be summed up in one sentence. It's all about Noriko getting over her fear of sex. Ironically, you don't get to see much police action despite the title and the context. While there are some attempts at humor, none of them struck me as particularly funny. I didn't really like any of the characters either.
I have to admit though; the treatment of Noriko's situation is pretty romantic. I liked the way she and Yasuo built-up their relationship. It's not like they just meet and then immediately proceed to do each other. Don't get me wrong. Tokio Private Police is filled to the brim with sex. None of those tentacles and monsters though, what Tokio Private Police offers is just plain old person-to-person intercourse. There's even a segment featuring girl-to-girl action.
The art and animation are okay, I guess. The characters look presentable at best, and only one of the girls can be considered pretty. But don't let the mediocre art fool you. The depiction of sex is shamelessly detailed -- everything is rendered in their full uncensored glory, from the pubic hair to the bodily secretions of both male and female characters. Camera angles really go up close and personal, similar to the cinematography employed in live-action porn flicks. If you're the type who feels cheated by hentai anime with invisible genitalia and skillfully blocked views, Tokio Private Police won't disappoint you in this aspect. But everything else is average fare.
Miscellanies: Tokio Private Police's subtitled VHS release spans two volumes, but the English dubbed VHS and DVD release contains all the eps in one volume.
