The first television series of You're Under Arrest picks up right where the OVA left off. Kobayakawa Miyuki and Tsujimoto Natsumi are now regular partners in the fight against crime at the not so typical Bokuto Police Station, Traffic Department. Where you might think the Traffic Department seems rather boring, this group breaks that idea! This diverse group includes machine fetishes, cross-dressers, gossipy police women, romance, adventure, and more! They not only fight against speeders and parking violators, but theft rings, hostage situations, and even a masked vigilante! This group of policemen and women of the Traffic Department at Bokuto Police Station is anything but regular!
Additional Notes: Episode 52 of the AnimEigo DVD release is actually the last episode of the You're Under Arrest: Mini Specials

Um, I almost feel like I wasted my time watching all 50 episodes. The animation was terrible, except when it came to the technical designs of the machines (cars, bikes, etc.). I could tell that the animation studio was probably cutting corners to make their deadline in some scenes. The mellow-drama was so un-called for that it almost had me in tears. The music was repetitive throughout the series and almost predictable. It was also too whimsical (the music) like out of a children's show. The only thing that really kept my attention was the character development throughout the series and their relationships between each other. I suppose the comical elements were above average too. I give this show a 5 out of 10; it's not something to completely avoid, but don't go out of your way to watch this series.

AH My Goodness~!! No reviews for my favourite anime?! This was the anime that brought me to the anime world...time to do some work for it. This is a comedy/slight romance and lots of automobile actions anime. Recommend for viewers going for relaxing, funny and light-hearted anime.
This anime is about the Bokuto police and their daily lifestyles, crime-solving action and experiences. It revolves mainly around the 2 main characters Natsumi Tsujimoto and (my fav. anime girl) and Miyuki Kobayakawa. If you really like car engines and their sounds...this anime is really for you. Their animation of the car, the detail of the engine and equipment and parts of the mini patrol car "Today" should do it. Imagine dat mini patrol car equipped with nitro turbo booster! Nitro ON~!! The slight romance part seems fine with me; the draggy but comical relationship between Nakajima Ken and Miyuki, and the "Strong duo" relationship between Natsumi and Toukairin. Comedy? Definitely, but may not be funny to those lacking sense of humour (just joking).
The character designs are nice(please don't compare it with recent animes like D-Grayman, Death Note or Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu). It's a classic anime, as you can see it was released on 1993. But I still like it. As for the characters, the 2 main female leads are interesting, with Miyuki as a weapon, tech and mechanic expert as well as a pro driver, and Natsumi as an insanely strong woman with a great appetite, comically bad lifestyle and behavior, I must say (It's fortunate for any policeman to consistently get drunk and be late for work the next day without being fired). You also have Nakajima Ken, your typical male character who has troubles going for the one he loves: Miyuki, and Toukairin another insanely strong man who can defeat Natsumi as well as falling in love for her. Some interesting characters are like Aoi Futaba who is a man who got obsessed with being a woman (after some cases in which he disguised as a woman), and can be more feminine than the female characters in the show, and Strike-otoko is quite interesting, as he portrays the anger we felt when seeing people behaving inconsiderate, disgusting, etc, by really expressing it to them with his 'justice'. Overall, the character development is good throughout the series, be it relationship or friendship though every episodes maybe a new case file and not related to the previous.
The openings and endings theme are nice, especially Sora wo Miagete, Love Somebody (the Narita Airport version is super nice) and Brand New Day. Nothing like those J-pop frm Naruto, Bleach, D Grayman, etc, but still nice and soothing when listening to them. The soundtracks are nice too.
Think I said abit too much above. Anyway this is another animation by AH! Megami-sama (or Ah! My Goddess) creator Fujishima Kousuke. If you like his works, this one's for you. This is one great classic anime which makes me rewatch the whole entire series several times.
