About Heat Guy J
Super criminals and mafia families have become more powerful than any police force in the oceanic city-nation of Judoh. That’s why the government built Android J, a cybernetic crime-fighting machine destined to rid Judoh of the criminal element. Together with his partner, Daisuke Aurora, the most dangerous criminals will soon find themselves on the run. The mob won’t take this sitting down, and as the criminals toughen up and the stakes keep rising, J finds himself matched in more than one battle.
FUNimation Entertainment will release the series in a complete series box set later this year.
