Unlike most shows the three episodes are not only totally unrelated to each other but really don't follow a plot as such and are more a light hearted jibe at both the Patlabor series (TV and films) and other "mecha" Anime. Episode 1 is a brief introduction to the weaponry carried by the Ingram and how it was designed and why it is the way it is. Episode 2 looks at the design and maintenance of the Ingram 98 AV in SVU2 and takes a swipe at the marketing forces behind them (as in merchandising for the series). Episode 3 is the only one to attempt to expand on a very minor point raised in the original TV show and just how SVU2 is actually funded.

A light hearted Patlabor spin off, and the comeback of our beloved SV2, before that AWFUL 3rd Movie.

Story: 8
Quite a funny story. Quite confusing because of the pace. You might have to pause it several times to understand it.

Art: 10
Made in a totally new stile developed just for Minipato, the charachters are portraited as cardboard puppets, that magically move!!
Really cute!!

Sound: 10
The OST is just as awesome as expected from Kawai Kenji, and the rest of the franchise. 'Hatashiai Kana?' is a super cute OP song which I think has some drugs involved on it's making. You gotta listen to understand.

Character: 10
It's the huge SV2 comeback.
