A experience you won't regret it
28 September 2017 | by garakiraSee all my reviews

I don't really know why the hate towards this beautiful, fun, thriller, the pace it's slow but it's intended to be like that, it has action, and motives enough to do what the characters do, yes Mamoru it's not involved, but so what?, this is a very entertaining production, and it reflects how life in that not far away Tokio is held, that means that is not only the characters of the first movies the only ones that live there, basically, this expand the universe of Patlabor series.

It's not perfect, but it's beautiful done, and please, do favor for you and don't watch the dub version, I get that is one of the weak points of the bad reviews.
