When the level of Labor accidents begin to escalate around Tokyo Bay, police detectives Kusumi and Hata are assigned to investigate. What they discover leads to a series of government cover-ups, conspiracy concerning a new biological weapon entitled WXIII-Wasted Thirteen and a tragic, personal connection to Hata. The only hope to stop this threat is to cooperate with the military and lead WXIII into a showdown with the Labors of Special Vehicle Division 2.

Mixed Feelings
To keep things simple, imagine if someone made a boring detective anime with a mediocre budget. But catch this: They isekai'd in Special Vehicle Unit 2 from Patlabor!

It was only a decade after movie 2, but Oshii (the original creator) has made it clear through movie 2 that it was the final movie in the Patlabor franchise. This one felt like a forced attempt to revive the series (since Oshii ...
