Just because you’ve ripped off Blade Runner, that’s not enough to make you cyberpunk

There are a couple of things that bother me about A D Police.

For one thing, (according the the anime) there’s supposed to be a “tion” in “Extention,” as in, “Voodoo Organic Metal Extention Resources.” (But of course, according to standard dictionaries, there’s supposed to be an “sion” in “extension.”)

For another thing, even if they ripped off Blade Runner, that doesn’t mean that it’s really a noir story. Maybe it’s a little bit on the hardboiled side, but there isn’t enough black-and-grey morality to make it really gritty.
