By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on July 5 2009
Format: DVD
In the futuristic city of Judoh, androids are forbidden -- all except Heat Guy J, a police android belonging to the special unit that tries to prevent crimes.

"Heat Guy J, Vol. 1: Super Android" introduces a world that is mostly like ours, but just a bit more advanced (gasoline is a thing of the past) and populated by boyish cops, deranged teenage dons, macho androids and convicted werewolves. The first four episodes skimp a little on the character development, but they're an elaborate, action-packed string of procedural mysteries.

On an ordinary day in Judoh, Daisuke Aurora observes the funeral of the Vampire (Mafia don), disrupted only by the don's son and heir, Clair Leonelli, throwing a grenade into the works. Literally.

Then it's business as usual when Daisuke and his robotic partner J investigate a gang of illegal immigrants who have an illicit robot who is gunning for J. Unfortunately, they've also left a dead body in their wake. And when the crazed Clair starts a mob war between the Leonelli and Wei families, Daisuke has to figure out how the Mafia are going to settle this -- and stop Clair's plan before part of the city goes kaboom. And what does the mob war have to do with this funny smell?

Then someone starts distributing illegal "beauty cards" with photos of gorgeous women on them, which causes Daisuke's inspector/receptionist Kyoko to become obsessed with turning up on one. Daisuke is more concerned about the possible connection between beauty cards and a series of bizarre bombings. And at a casino where Russian roulette is the main gamble, Clair recruits a mysterious, wolf-faced man to destroy Daisuke...

Heat guy j is a cross between ROBOCOP and COWBOY BEBOP with elements of T2 thrown in for good measure.J is part machine,part man and all philosipher, i love the interatction between j and daisuke, even clair leonetti AKA Vampire is likable as the main villian. (check out the epidsode where he has his accountant read poetry while guns are pointed at him lol.) each epidsoe is slightly different form the other.
and the music is the best since bebop's especially the opening intro theme FACE sung by TRYFORCE. Vampire's theme is cool also..methinks i will get the soundtrack. anyway i highly recommend this series for sci-fi action otakus. it's no ghost in the shell, but it stands on it's own. "you don't be afriad" to give this series a try.

I originally saw this anime at Anime Expo '03, and I really enjoyed it! I like the 'strong, silent type', and J is all that! The 'villain', snarky little punk Clair Leonelli, is really creepy, and he reminds me a lot of unhinged villans like Gary Oldham's character in "The Professional" or Jack Nicholson's Joker in "Batman".
I gave this anime four stars because the plot in the beginning is a bit hard to follow--Daisuke Aurora, J's human partner, is investigating an entity known as "The Shop", which is smuggling illegal goods and allowing illegal immigrants (not to mention an android, which except for J, are forbidden) into the city. There are mob-style hits on whoever seems to be connected with this smuggling activity, but eventually I just give up on trying to figure it out and watch the show. The visuals are really compelling (nice mix of CGI and cel-style animation) and the action is well done. Looking forward to the next disc!
