The XX Cop Ryotsu Appears!? (XX警官両津現る!?, Batsu Batsu Keikan Ryotsu Awararu!?) is the 1st episode of the KochiKame (anime). It first aired on June 16, 1996.
We're introduced to Ryotsu Kankichi, a police officer who works in a police box in Kameari, a district in Tokyo. However, today he's late for work and is racing there on his bicycle in order to make it there on time. He manages to get there just barely on time, but ends up crashing his bike and breaking one of the police box's windows.
In order to pay for the repairs, as well as pay everything he owes the shopkeepers in town, he ends up using his entire paycheck for the month, leaving him with only a few yen. Will he be able to figure out some way to survive the month without having any money to spend on food?
