Heat Guy J - Super Android
Anime DVD Review
The setting is the oceanic city-nation of Judoh. Androids are against the law here, due to the danger of misuse. There is one important exception: Heat Guy J-Super Android. He is created by the City Safety Management Agency to combat crime. Along with his partner, special agent Daisuke Aurora, they go out into Judoh's violent underworld, combating formidable criminals that push each of them to the limits of their abilities.
Directed by Kazuki Akane, this DVD series delivers a gritty sense of the back alleys of a sprawling metropolis, compelling visuals of dizzying action, breathtaking panoramas, slick-looking mecha, and an endless assortment of fascinating characters along with tight, gripping storylines.
