More Patlabor.
24 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

These are the following adventures of the Patlabor series continuing where we left off from the TV series. Made, voiced, animated and produced by the same people from the previous ones. The cool thing about this one is we get to see continuations and comebacks from the previous TV series. As well a large number of character developing episodes that don't have anything to do with the Patlabors. But with the characters we all know and enjoy to watch.

It's the last and second shortest Patlabor series, but it was fun until it lasted. And I've already consider Patlabor to be the best Mecha-Sci-Fi anime in existence.

All 16 episodes are available on a 3 disc set. The first 5 are dubbed, while the others are only subtitled with Japanese. A lot of people prefer in viewing them in Japanese, so there's no fuss over it.
