Summer H. Howell,
Patlabor is set in an alternate future in which technology rapidly advanced to the creation of giant robots called "Labors". Which gives man kind a new leap in heavy industries and manufactures. But this has also rise up the number crimes, as Labors have been used for terror and mayhem. To prevent any that, a new law enforcement has been established. Now the police forces has their own Patrol Labors known as "Patlabors".
Story revolves over a female officer named Izumi Noa, a new recruit of the Special Vechicals Devision 2. After becoming a pilot for the Alphonse Patlabor model, and making new friends of the second devision. They all make quite a team, for a bunch of officials with different profiles and different goals. Noa and her team will protect and fight off masterminds, terrorists, and lunatics throughout the whole series.
Patlabor is one of the many average fight robot genders of Japanese Animation. But I think this series is one of the best. It has a good plot to it, the technology and location are well drawn, and there's plenty of character development. It has action as well as some comedy to lighten things up. Despite this series to only have 7 OVA episodes, it's worthy of being a classic to big time Anime fans.
