MegaTokyo 2027 AD - Another Story of the Bubblegum Crisis

Relentless technological development has resulted in the creation of Boomers, artificially intelligent androids with the potential to free mankind from physical labor. But anything that can be used can also be misused... 

Three gritty, violent and sexually charge tales from a Megatokyo that had not yet heard of the Knight Sabers.

File 1 - The Phantom Woman

AD Police rookie Leon McNichol gets his first lesson in the school of hard choices when he and his partner Geena are given the job of tracking down the cause of several incidents of Boomers running amuck. They soon discover that a defective Boomer is illegally reactivating Boomers which have been scrapped -- and one of these Boomers has a vivid memory locked in her mind; the image of the man who destroyed her. The image of Leon McNichol. 

File 2 - The Ripper

Detective Ailis Kara doggedly investigates a string of vicious murders, the victims all prostitutes, and all found with their abdomens slashed open. Along the way, she meets a female executive who has had herself artificially augumented to get ahead in business. Is there a connection between the newly available implants and the murders? 

At what point does one stop being human, and become a machine? Ailis Kara is about to find out. 

File 3 - The Man Who Bites His Tongue

ADPolice officer Billy Fanword, critically wounded in battle with a runaway Boomer, is used as an experimental subject for a cyber-operation, and reborn as an invicible Cyborg Policeman. 

But Billy, who can only confirm his humanity by biting his tongue, soon finds out that invincibility isn't all it's cracked up to be.


Gritty imagery that will stick with you

Featuring the distinctive music of Filipino pop singer Lou Bonnevie, AD Police Files was more than the sum of its parts. Unflinchingly dark without being exploitative, it captures a dark, dystopian future far beyond what we saw in Bubblegum Crisis. For many fans who saw it when they were young, its imagery has stuck with them.


Don't take our word for it...

"There are few anime series out there that have had the same kind of impact as Bubblegum Crisis and even after all these years, it is still a wonderfully animated cyberpunk cult classic."
