Based on the manga by Kouske Fujishima (Ah! My Goddess
), You're Under Arrest!
(Hereafter referred to as YUA
) centers around the exploits and mis-adventures of two of Bokuto Precinct's traffic officers, Miyuki Kobayakawa (Polite & a bit shy around a certain motorcycle cop
, a whiz with just about anything techie-wise & one of the best drivers around) & Natsumi Tsujimoto (Brash, very outspoken & incredibly strong). An odd couple perhaps but when these two lovely ladies hit the streets of downtown Tokyo (Sumida Ward) on patrol, lawbreakers don't stand a chance!
This series first aired in Japan on TBS in 1996 with the original 4-episode OVA series having been released two years earlier in 1994. This will mark my 4th journey with my favorite traffic cops and any & all are invited to come along for the ride.
This thread will cover the first season, mini-specials & the movie. For numbering purposes we'll go with the numbering that Animeigo & ANN has for the TV series which has the OVA series as the first 4 episodes & the special "Diverting Traffic At The Beach" as the 52nd & final episode. I'll try to keep at a rate of 1 episode per day so hopefully things won't slow down too much. Also, please refrain from commenting on differences between the anime & the manga as this thread for discussing the anime ONLY. Comments on the manga are better served IMO in a separate thread in the Manga Forums-Thanks in advance.
As usual, please try to follow these three easy forum courtesy habits when replying:
1) If you're the first person to post about an episode in any given week, please respond to the root post (this post) and indicate in the subject line which episode you're posting about.
2) If someone has already posted about an episode before you, please respond to that post (or a relevant reply to that post). Keep in the right subthread.
3) Don't use the blue "Post Reply" button because it causes your reply not to correctly inherit the subject line of the post you're replying to. Just click "Quote" to the post you want to reply to.
With all this in mind, let's roll!
