The Tokyo Project is, well, mostly just like dozens of other 80s and early 90s anime OVAs with more action than personality, kind of just going through the motions for most of its hour run. At least, it is until that bizarrely scifi final act where the characters take on a walking tank! It'll have you screaming, "Snake? SNNNAAAAAAAAKE!"
In this episode, I take a look at the four part OVA, Dominion Tank Police, that features what seems like the inevitable future of American police militaritization (Japan will just go the Patlabor route)! But is this send up of 80s hyperviolence a social satire or just a parody that identifies with its captors? I hope to sparse the mixed messages from this old "classic" I first saw on Sci-Fi Channel's Saturday Anime block.
