Hallelujah, it’s Friday again! Here’s the opening to Keishichou Satsujinka, and if you think that’s a mouthful, in English it would be “Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department: Homicide Division.” It’s about a special inspector tasked with training Tokyo’s finest for the most grisly of departments. Somehow, that still ends up involving waterfront gunfights and leaping from a formation of moving cars. We dig the S60 Crown and Subaru Leone slalom action and cheer for the airborne Subie, yet we weep when the kujira is senselessly carbombed in a subsequent clip. Too bad Keishichou Satsujinka only ran for a single 26-episode season in 1981.
If it only ran one season it most probably died due to being under financed. All cars are a bit too old for 1981 and the whole intro breathes 1977 instead of 1981! Compare that to Seibu Keisatsu which got the latest Nissan cars to keep it up to date with the Nissan model line up.
But that doesn’t matter to me: I love this intro anyway! 🙂
What a waste of Jack Daniels…
This opening reminds me of Hawaii Five-O
