The You're Under Arrest manga ran from 1986 to 1992 in Kodansha’s Morning Party Zokan and Morning magazines. The series spawned four TV anime series, five animated OVAs, one anime film and a nine-episode live-action drama series. Chapters of the series were released in English by Dark Horse comics in the 1990s, which describes the manga back then as such:
It's babes and badges! Miyuki and Natsumi are two stunningly beautiful policewomen who are, at heart, a couple of girls who just wanna have fun! When they're not getting themselves into wacky situations, they're busy enforcing the law. They're part Cagney and Lacey, part Thelma and Louise, and part Barbie and Skipper!
