Finally. I’ve gotten to the Patlabor that I had originally intended to watch.
Man, that’s totally become one of my favorite anime catch phrases.
Also, I can see now how the second OVA is attached to the TV series, like multiple people pointed out.
Originally, I was just going to watch Patlabor 2, since it’s a Mamoru Oshii movie. But then I was told that if I like giant robots as I claim to, I’d better watch all of Patlabor, starting with the TV series, then the OVAs, and then finally the movies. So since this was a 4 cours series, it took a bit longer than usual to finish.
