Future Policeman Urashiman

Mirai Keisatsu Urashiman (未来警察ウラシマン, lit. Future Policeman Urashiman) is a Japanese science fiction manga series written by Hirohisa Soda, illustrated by Noboru Akashi and published by Akita Shoten. It was adapted into a 1983 anime television series produced by Tatsunoko Productions and ran from January 9 to December 24, 1983 on Fuji TV. It was later released in Germany and Sweden as Rock ‘n Cop, in Finland as Rocki-kyttä, in France as Super Durand (roughly, “Super Jones” or “Super Smith”), and in Italy as Ryo, un ragazzo contro un impero (“Ryo, a boy against an empire”).


The story tells of a young man and his cat who are being pursued by the police during a particularly stormy night in a city in 1983. The young man suddenly drives his car right into the middle of a cyclone and is caught in a space/time anomaly. As a result, they end up in the year 2050.

Suffering from complete memory loss, he soon finds that he is being pursued by the army-like forces of Necrime, a top criminal organization led by Ludovich. Taking the name Ryū Urashima, the young man joins the police force and fights back against Necrime. He is joined in the fight by Sophia, a happy-go-lucky ex-nun, and Claude, a fellow officer. The unit is run by Inspector Gondo Toru. He is also joined by his cat, Myaa, whom made the time journey with him and is one of the few links to his past that he remembers.
