Product Description

Product Description

Newport City, 2010. An overcrowded, urban sprawl choking from the pollution of unregulated technology. In a desperate attempt to stop the swelling tide of rampant crime and urban terrorism plaguing the city, the government forms a special task force - The Tank Police. The Tank Police are assigned to restore order, but their ruthless methods in combating crime only create more destruction and chaos. Squad Leader Leona Ozaki, together with her radically modified tank Bonaparte, battles alongside her fellow officers to bring down the insidious Dai Nippon Gaiken Corporation that threatens to overwhelm the city with a new virtual drug. But with high explosive artillery at her disposal, can Newport City handle the destruction and chaos caused by her own defenders?

Japan’s Manga legend Masamune Shirow personally oversaw the production of this exciting series to ensure that the programs remained faithful to his original Manga. Shirow delivers a darkly comic vision of a future overrun with fast and furious mecha, cybernetically enhanced humans and rouge androids.

In the future, Newport City is engulfed in a fairly toxic cloud due to pollution. Due to crime running out of control, the local police gained its own tank batallion, and from then on became the Tank Police.
Much of the police activity centres around relative newcomer Leona Ozaki, a former cop of the biker division, who's hot-headed but determined to bring criminals to justice at any cost, with the help of her unique manoeuvrable little tank named Bonaparte. Her partner (and Bonaparte's driver and mechanic) is Al, who's very calm and pacifist -- a complete antithesis to Leona -- which leads to some comic moments.
The other characters include Four-Eyes (technology expert), Chaplin (Christian pacifist officer), Nam (weapons expert), Captain Brenten (loud-mouthed action-seeking leader) and the Chief of Police (who's constantly going at the others for causing so much trouble when catching criminals, especially with the damage claims!).
However, a series of events involving the local Dai Nippon Geiken company may mean that the Tank Police may be a necessary evil after all...
The material on view here is all six episodes of New Dominion Tank Police, courtesy of 'Ghost In The Shell' and 'Appleseed' author Masamune Shirow, and it is fairly top-class comedy action.
The biggest difference here compared to the previous VHS versions is that (a) you get all six episodes on one disc, which consumes less shelf space(!), and (b) you get the option to watch it in its original Japanese language with English subtitles.

I had no expectations for this anime at all. I know that Shirow is supposedly a master yet i was underwhelmed by Ghost in the shell. Maybe it was the huge expectations i had for it but whatever it was - I didn't enjoy it and that's what really matters right? Not that the story tries to confuse you as much as possible.
This is much lighter despite being set in a similar kind of World. I love the animation on this, it's not computer enhanced but it has a wholesome feel that ghost in the shell lacked. The story isn't overly complex; there are police in tanks and there are bad guys. The bad guys try to make profits on illegal weapons while the police clan up the mess it leaves.
Likeable characters and slapstick humour makes for an anime that you can lay back and enjoy. the animation on the actual tanks is really cool too. The other thing i should mention is the value - 3hours for 15 quid, that's pretty good. what's more is you get a poster with it too! Now that is a rareity for Manga who usually just give yuo the rubbish 'out to own' list.
all in all then, worth buying and watch out for the theif female twins making an appearance in Ghost in the Shell.

Set in a future Japan that is rife with corruption and crime and choking pollution the Government attempts to control the situation by forming the Tank police. Leona Ozaki the leader and her modified tank Bonaparte head a squad that is totally undisciplined set out to keep law and order in their own hilarious way. Their main aim is to destroy the insidious Dai Nippon Gaiken Corporation from flooding the streets with a new virtual drug. Their attempts to bring the ringleader to justice are so funny and I just love the kick ass attitude of Leona and her long suffering boss the way she is so tough and bolshie crease me up. I love this series and the author of the original Manga, Masamune Shirow (who also created Ghost in the shell and Appleseed) worked on this series personally so it stayed loyal to the original.

A must have for all Anime fans collections

While Masamune Shirow is perhaps best known for Ghost in the Shell, Dominion was the first of his Manga to be translated into Anime. While the original OVA follows the manga (though only 4 of the 6 episodes were made), this follows the manga's style with lots of action and humour.

If you like Shirow's more recent works, then you really should watch this. While less "real world" then either Appleseed or GitS, this is still an excellent series. Dominion (both the original oav and New Dominion) have some of the best one-liners in animé including the classic by Benten (Britain in the OAV) "We put the Terror back into inTerrorgation!"

So if you like comedy and action, this is an essential purchase.

pxb^_^

This is also notable for being the first animé by a then unknown company called JC Staff (it was supposed to be JC Stuff, but they misspelled it^^;). JC Staff works include DiGi Charat, Azumanga Diaoh and the recent Japanese releases Kimi Kiss and Zero's Familiar.

I was a big fan of Volumes 1-4, and had eagerly looked forward to these (5-10).

However, that change in animation style make the visuals seem a bit less fun for me. Also, the increasingly infuriating nature of the Leona Ozaki character I found to be too OTT. Even for Tank Police.

Other than that, there is still a lot of entertainment and some laughs to be had from these episodes, a couple of which are really good. On the plus side, the final part is not bad. A pleasent change when so many series end up fizzling out.

At the original RRP of £15:99, I'd say it was a bit of a stretch. Not a rip-off, but not a bargain. But at under four quid (yes, not just under a fiver, under *four*) there's very little to complain about at the moment.
