Thoughts/Review:

You're Under Arrest! Full Throttle - 21I don’t think I’d ever heard the name of the other motorcycle cop before this episode. Samejima, eh? Not that it matters of course, but he has been around for a while and I guess it is nice to finally get a name with the face.

When Miyuki and Nakajima had their little chat on the roof, I just rolled my eyes. After all, it wasn’t like they were going to actually get their relationship going now was it? Instead, it You're Under Arrest! Full Throttle - 21was the same old failed and boring attempt by Nakajima to express his feelings for Miyuki.

As to the story of the Red Phantom, is it any different than countless other stories centering around fools in a car? Nope. It looks like the Red Phantom will be an ex-police officer that Nakajima knew but since we don’t know this person, who cares? I guess the writers did since they You're Under Arrest! Full Throttle - 21decided to make this a 2-parter. Whatever.

So why keep watching?

Well, I’m already invested this deeply in the series, I may as well go all the way as I’m able. It really is a shame to see how a really fun cop anime show has turned into the farce it has with Full Throttle.
