Whether it's stories about getting drunk, saving kittens, ghosts, bath house brawls, running from giant crocodiles, fighting terrorists in devastatingly powerful robots, or reading porn, it doesn't matter. Patlabor OVA 2 re-affirms what Patlabor TV and the original OVA established, Patlabor can do anything and it will work. And no, I wasn't kidding, you will find all of that and more here despite the short episode count.

As with previous Patlabor works, the strength of this OVA is mainly in how the characters are so enjoyable, the bizarre and often surreal direction of Mamoru Oshii, and the wonderful OST by Kenji Kawai. If you have seen read more

As a continuation of the TV series and as done with the original OVA, Patlabor is about a mech police force in Division 2 going about their daily lives.

The first four episodes serve as a conclusion to the TV series in a final bout with the black labor. This reason alone, if having seen the TV series, will be enough to justify watching New Files. However, the rest of the OVA series is random episodes in true Patlabor fashion as it follows the division 2 team on various adventures, work related or not. That is what makes up Patlabor The New Files.
