A sudden rise in incidents involving Genom City's cyborg workforce, the VOOMERS, has put the A.D. Police - the city's anti-robot crime division - in the hot seat. Making matters worse, Kenji Sasaki - one of the A.D. Police's most valuable and unconventional officers - has had his share of bad luck. It seems his partners are either turning up dead or seriously injured. Given a new partner, Hans Kleif, and one last chance to redeem himself by playing by the rules, Kenji desperately needs to get to the bottom of this techno-mystery and keep the VOOMERS from turning Genom City into a high-tech wasteland. It is an uphill battle with Kenji fighting his own personal demons while he and Hans build a new working relationship to combat the threat that faces the A.D. Police. This release is a two-disc collector's set featuring the entire twelve-episode mini-series, with several episodes being made available to North American audiences for the first time.
Set a few years before Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040, A.D. Police chronicles the tales of Mega-Tokyo's special police division designed to control rogue Boomers in the city. A.D. Police Officer Kenji Sasaki faces a major dilemna: he loses another partner to a rabid boomer. A day after he's sent off-duty, he receives a new partner in the form of German cop Hans Kleif. Funny thing is that Kenji sucker-punched Hans at a bar the night before. Not only does Kenji face the everyday task of controlling Boomers, he has to learn to adjust with his new partner.
