Mad Bull 34 (1990)

One of Manga UK's early licenses, Mad Bull 34 is a four part OVA series from Magic Bus Studios that centers around two NYPD officers, John "Sleepy" Estes (a.k.a. Mad Bull) and his partner Daizaburo "Eddie" Ban, who work in the 34th Precinct. Mad Bull 34 has become infamous among English-speaking viewers for its over-the-top violence and sexual content, its "punched up" English dub (which features laughable uses of profanity and consists mostly of British actors faking New York accents) and its unflattering and inaccurate portrayal of both the NYPD and New York in general (Magic Bus thanks the 34th Precinct in the OVA's credits, though for what exactly is never specified).

The following weapons were used in the OVA Mad Bull 34:



Both "Mad Bull" as well as various criminals in the series use M1911A1 pistols.

A group of mobsters fire their M1911s at Capricorn.

Smith & Wesson Model 19

Daizaburo's service weapon is the Smith & Wesson Model 19. Another Model 19 is seen in the hands of a pair of rapists at the beginning of the first episode. Several other police officers are seen with Model 19s in episode 4.

Remington 1866 Derringer

Several women are seen shooting Remington 1866 Derringer pistols at the "Ladies' Derringer Shooting Range". "Mad Bull" appears to have obtained two of these pistols.

Smith & Wesson 5904

The drug dealer at the beginning of episode 2 uses a Smith & Wesson 5904 pistol.

The majority of the Gouda Cartel members carry Smith & Wesson 439 pistols.

Beretta 92F

Lieutenant Tom DeMiyer carries a Beretta 92F.

A closeup shot of DeMiyer reveals that the weapon's hammer is cocked, yet the safety/decocker is on. A bit of a blunder on the animators' side.

Heckler & Koch P7M8

Lieutenant Perrine Valley carries a Heckler & Koch P7M8 pistol.

Lieutenant Valley practices with her P7M8 with an extended magazine at the 34th Precinct shooting range. Note how she closes one eye, something a trained cop (or trained shooter in general) would never do with a standard pistol.

Beretta 84B

During Lieutenant Valley's flashback, Don Enrico is seen with a Beretta 84B.

Beretta 84B (earlier version with round trigger guard) - .380 ACP

Norinco Type 54

The Chinese assassins in episode 3 usually use what appear to be Norinco Type 54 pistols.

Type 54 - 7.62x25mm Tokarev
An assassin aims his Type 54 pistol at "Mad Bull".
The assassin turns his weapon on himself after he fails his mission.

Submachine Guns


A gang of serial rapists in episode 1 all carry IMI Uzi submachine guns under their jackets.

IMI Uzi with buttstock collapsed - 9x19mm
Daizaburo finds an Uzi on the body of a rapist.
Daizaburo (dressed in drag) shows an undercover reporter the Uzi, explaining that the suspects' plan was to gang-rape her then kill her camera crew with machine gun fire then steal and sell the their tapes of the crime on the black market. This portrayal of New York makes Taxi Driver look downright idealistic.

Jatimatic SMG

Don Enrico's henchmen carry Jatimatic SMGs with 20-round magazines.

Jatimatic with 20-round magazine - 9x19mm

M1928 Thompson

Maury Edward's henchmen all use M1928 Thompson submachine guns.

M1928 "Tommy Gun" with 50-round drum magazine - .45 ACP

M1A1 Thompson

During Lieutenant Valley's flashback, members of the Don Enrico's thugs are seen using M1A1 Thompson submachine guns. A group of S.W.A.T. officers in episode 4 are also armed with M1 Thompsons.

Ithaca 37

"Mad Bull" keeps an Ithaca 37 shotgun in his patrol car, which he occasionally uses to pulp the skulls of various hooligans, much to the consternation of his partner. The weapon is erroneously depicted as having a side ejection port.

Mossberg 500AT

Lieutenant Valley is seen using a short-barreled Mossberg 500AT during a flashback.

Machine Guns

Browning M1919

An Browning M1919 machine gun is seen mounted inside an APC is episode 3.

Browning M1919A4 - .30-06 Springfield

Rocket Launchers


One of the Chinese assassins in episode 3 uses an M202A2 FLASH. Given the boxy appearance, it is likely this was referenced from the fake launcher from Commando rather than a real weapon.

M202 FLASH - 66mm
Fake M202 FLASH from Commando: note the large rectangular sling loops, less curved corners, and thick rims at the front and rear of the launcher.

M20B1 "Super Bazooka"

One S.W.A.T. officer fires a M20B1 "Super Bazooka" at Capricorn from a helicopter.

During the ambush against Capricorn, one S.W.A.T. officer is armed with a RPG-7. Why a New York police officer would be using a Russian rocket launcher is anyone's guess.

RPG-7 with PG-7VM rocket and PGO-7 scope - 40mm

Carl Gustav M2

The NYPD ESU is seen using four Carl Gustav M2 recoilless rifles. Not the most realistic loadout for a S.W.A.T. team.

Carl Gustav M2 - 84x246mm R


Mk 2 hand grenade

When the shootout in episode 2 starts to go downhill, "Mad Bull" rips off his pants, revealing he has, for reasons best known to himself, tied Mk 2 hand grenades to his pubic hairs.

Yes, really.

Mk 2 "Pineapple" High-Explosive Fragmentation hand grenade
This is not standard police procedure for use of ordinance. It is, however, a sure-fire sign of mental instability.
