You’re under arrest full throttle ep 03 – you’ve watched heart warming sitcoms, right?

That’s what happens in this episode. If it weren’t for Miyuki and Nastumi, this episode would be an infinite cliche (because it’s done infinite times in not only anime but family sitcoms).

Watching the ED, I felt that something powerful and urgent may happen at the end of this season (I can only hope), but don’t get this show wrong; this show demonstrates the tacit understanding of partners, and NOT yuri…Though personally, I’d love for them to do a yuri just for once, but thank god, these two ladies are almost Bible Belt wholesome. Hell, Nastumi’s almost like one of these Catholic muscle men on that strange Catholic show where freaky huge muscular dudes break stuff on stage and the hosts on the same stage ask the people in the audience to pray for their success (that’s conservative America for you, folks).

How absurd. But in any case, the old plot prevails and Nastumi has one of her standard duels with some powerful dude – in this case, a former wrestler who quit after an accident in a match (can we say, ‘the Nutcracker’?). Of course the episode ends with a heart warming ending where the dude get to help out the Tayaki stand…Don’t worry if you don’t get it, just watch this show when you need to feel good about life in general.

It’s these little daily things that these ladies go through that make their lives interesting and colorful. Also, they make the audience sit down, relax, maybe having a beer, and watch without worries. After all, when Miyuki and Nastumi of the Mokuto Police Department are on patrol, nothing will ultimately get out of hand.

The show returns to episodic pattern, and hence instead of a second episode slump, it’s got a 3rd episode slump that will certainly continue. If you want intrigue and long, well developed plots, this is NOT your show. But if you love the chemistry between two partners and feeling wet, hot and bothered for non-existent yuri between 2 female partners, this is definitely up yout territory.

Before I get off this one, let me tell you that wrestling is fixed. YES! It always has been (gasp!!!!!!!), I mean the pain and sore are very real, and people do get into a world of hurt, but the plot, the weapon strikes, and the “hate fest” are scripted. So if something like what happened to the wrestler dude in this episode happened in real life, his “opponent” would get suspended and possibly fired for such stupid mistake. In any case,

78% recommended for your daily anime diet. Noting really new happens to this franchise and so far, there’s no “Full Throttle” going on.

  1. Just a note – while everything you said of wrestling is true, you’re describing American wrestling. Don’t assume that it’s the same in Japan. Japanese wrestling is less scripted and fake (it still is to some degree), but it’s much more legitimate competition.
