Friday Video: Abunai Deka Cedric 430 Chase


In this clip from 80s Japanese cop show Abunai Deka, a Nissan Cedric 430 unmarked patrol car gives chase to a Gloria Van of the same generation. As you can see, this series doesn’t take itself as seriously as, say, Seibu Keisatsu, which would have ended the pursuit with Daimon arriving just in time to cut the baddies off at the pass and blow the crap out of their driver with a blast from his shotgun. Instead, Abunai lets its heroes play the fools, and even though we can’t understand what’s being said in this clip it still made us lawl.

    Good clip! :)
    Somehow that jump @0:21 looks very familiar… Maybe a popular spot for police chases? :D

    Haha… pretty funny!
    My wife says she used to watch this when it was airing back in the day. She gave a quick rough translation of some stuff – maybe others here can provide a better job…

    First, Abunai Deka means something like “Dangerous Police”

    At the end of the clip, the guy says something akin to “Even the monkey falls from the tree” – an idiom which means, ‘even professionals mess up sometimes’.
    And the final phrase has something to do with “Can’t chase them after they got away”… :)
