Mobile Police Patlabor (OVA)

 

Directed by Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell) and Naoyuki Yoshinaga (Patlabor TV), the 1998 Mobile Police Patlabor OVA series was the first animated Patlabor entry. Set in the then-near future of 1998, the Patlabor series chronicles a Japan where robots known as labors have revolutionized construction. Because labors are so widespread, they're also used in crimes, leading the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department to create a labor crime-fighting force. But Special Vehicles Section 2 isn't a typical police unit, as its members include the heir to a top labor production company, a robot fangirl, a gun maniac, a whipped husband and a gentle giant. Following the end of the OVA series, the story of the original Patlabor universe was continued in three feature films. The original Central Park Media release is out of print, but the series was re-released on Blu-ray and DVD by Maiden Japan.
