|Tokio Private Police|
(Tokio Kidō Police)

|Original video animation|

Tokio Private Police (TOKIO機動ポリス, Tokio Kidō Police) is a hentai anime series set in the future, and centres on a mechanised platoon of a private security firm.
In the future, Tokyo is no longer the capital of Japan, that honour returned to the ancient city of Kyoto. Although still a principle trading centre, much of the city – especially the once-fashionable Ginza district – has fallen into such a great morass of crime, the regular police are overwhelmed from all the extra work. As a result, many of the well-to-do citizens of the city often contract private security firms for their own protection. These firms are also deputised by the Tokyo police to aid them whenever a major situation develops.
Noriko Ibuki is employed with the Tokio Private Police, one of these private security firms, and in the opening is stationed in Ginza, which is now a crime-ridden slum. Years before, she was a high school student whose first sexual encounter went wrong; her boyfriend was very rough on her, and what resulted was close to rape. As a result, she doesn't like to indulge in sex. In the face of a normal day, Noriko's tomboy-ish looks (her short pink hair and a small bustline) often get her mistaken for a man, which irritates her greatly.
One night, while Noriko is in the process of foiling the rape of a female passenger of the subway by three thugs, she is aided by Shibata, the manager of the Shinjuku office of the T.P.P., and as a result, she ends up being reassigned by Shibata to Shinjuku to be part of the new mobile strike team he set up. Somewhat over-sexed, Shibata begins to foster a purely physical interest for Noriko as well (even though he has a girlfriend).
But when Noriko arrives in Shinjuku, she is alarmed to find - next to the actual budget shortage in the TPP force - that some of her teammates are real oddballs. One guy, Yasuo Kawasaki, is a total mecha fanatic who has the least interest in girls – just mecha. Isamu Oyama, a former soldier, mistakes her for a man (as usual) and even makes the suggestion that Noriko is actually a transgender... for which he gets slapped by her. And to top it all off, her partner Kayoko Kuraishi happens to be a nymphomaniac with a somewhat enlightened idea about sex. As for her superior, Keiko Yamasami also happens to be the girlfriend/lover of Shibata and is blissfully unaware about his interest in Noriko.
Even though her first day goes bad, Noriko soon finds that in order to get through a day filled with budget cuts and long days, she's going to have to find some way to relieve stress. Eventually, Kayoko helps Noriko get over her sexual hang-ups in a session of lesbian love. In the end, Noriko and Yasuo discover a common ground and begin a romantic relationship. The series is in a way a mix of mecha-fights and sexual interaction between the main characters.
