You're Under Arrest is a popular anime television series that started airing in 1996 and continued until 2008. The show is based on the manga series created by Kousuke Fujishima. The story revolves around two female police officers, Natsumi Tsujimoto and Miyuki Kobayakawa, who work together to keep the streets of Tokyo safe.

The two main characters have very different personalities. Natsumi is a tomboy with a fiery temper, while Miyuki is a more reserved and diligent officer. They are joined by a cast of other police officers, including Ken Nakajima, who is a car enthusiast, Yoriko Nikaido, who is obsessed with romance, and Aoi Futaba, who is the Captain of their police division.

The show is set in Bokuto Station, which is known for its high crime rates. Despite this, the officers of Bokuto Station make it their mission to keep the public safe with their unique blend of skill and humor. They often encounter bizarre situations, such as car chases, bank robberies, and stalking incidents. The officers manage to defuse these situations with a combination of their quick thinking and their excellent teamwork.

One of the most notable aspects of You're Under Arrest is the emphasis on vehicles. The show often features high-speed chases and elaborate car sequences. The officers of Bokuto Station drive a variety of vehicles, including motorcycles, sports cars, and even tanks. This vehicle-centric aspect of the show adds an extra layer of excitement to the action and gives the show a unique aesthetic.

The show balances action and comedy very well. While there is plenty of excitement to be had in the car chases and crime-fighting scenes, the show never forgets to infuse humor into the story. Natsumi's hot-headedness often leads to comical situations, and Yoriko's obsession with romance adds a humorous touch to her interactions with potential suitors. Even the more serious scenes are balanced with a touch of humor, which keeps the show engaging and entertaining throughout.

The animation style of the show is smooth and fluid, with bright colors and bold character designs. The characters are all distinct and memorable, with exaggerated expressions and movements that add to the humor of the show. The show's attention to detail, especially in the vehicle designs and animations, is impressive and adds a level of realism to the action scenes.

Overall, You're Under Arrest is a fun and exciting anime series that balances action, comedy, and vehicles in a unique and entertaining way. The characters are engaging and memorable, the animation is impressive, and the story is engaging and well-paced. The show is suitable for viewers of all ages and is a great choice for fans of action-comedy anime series.

You're Under Arrest is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (102 episodes). The series first aired on October 8, 2009.
