You're Under Arrest

There wasn't a thread on the series list, and other threads I found about YUA were locked, so I decided to start a new thread.

I just finished a marathon of watching through the 1st season, movie, and 2nd season.

I was hesitant on starting this show, because it didn't seem that interesting to me. After finishing it all, I'm in love with the show.

I AM IN LOVE WITH NATSUMI

The only thing that really bothered me was the really slow pace of Miyuki and Ken's relationship.

Spoiler:


Also, anyone know how old the captain is? I remember in one episode he said he was 50 or something, but he seems like he's in his 40s...??

I personally like Miyuki better. As for her relationship never getting anywhere, well the manga series that the anime is based upon is by the same mangka as the one for Ah! My Goddess I believe. The relationship in that one never gets anywhere either.

I loved the OVA (which became the first 4 or so episodes of the TV show), but the TV show itself just did not hold my attention. There should have been more car chases like the opening sequence where they meet.

Miyuki was cool, but Yoriko was my favorite.

Was the second season substantially better than the first? or was it more of Strike-man?

Quality wise, the 2nd season was as good as the OVA. Also, that highschool girl who wanted to be a cop finally joined the ranks. What I liked best was the drama that unfolded

This anime doesn't interest me at 1st. Not until the 'trap' join the the team. Natsumi & Miyuki are the best combination ever. And I love Strike Otoko

I love Y.U.A., the subtlety of their relationship in their carefree environment have always warmed my heart. Even though Ken and Miyuki never kissed but it's the difficult growing relationship that they express for each other that's so adorable.

Yoriko was alway my favorite, she's cute, especially in the movie when

I also enjoyed the series a lot. Natsumi and Miyuki were like goddesses to me. I love Natsumi more becuase of her tomboyish ways, and her attitude, but I love Miyuki becuase she was a whiz at car mechanics (my dream girl) They both could do what I wish I could do. Ultimate role-models

LOL. Seems like Yoriko is pretty popular. My favourite would be Aoi

No matter how great Stike Otoko's ball is, Natsumi always hit a home run

KEN & MIYUKI...GO FOR IT ALREADY! Geez! Miyuki should've make a move on Ken. But I guessed that'll hurt his pride as a man.

I still remember a little bit that last episode of 2nd season where

Darn memory! Can't remember much.

They were really dramatic. Thank goodness it ends well.

Aren't we all, but in a sense it's part of life. You grow attached to someone then sooner or later you will have to part ways. It's sad but so true.

That is sooo true and it happens all the time in anime. Sometimes I don't have enough courage to watch the end of some series (that includes You're Under Arrest)....yeah yeah I know but there is no way i can hold in the tears after the series ends
