THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.

So... was that a dream or something?
I really loved the Gojira (Original Godzilla film) reference, with the oxygen destroyer haha

I laughed a lot at this episode, specially in the parte where they were planning how to defeat the monster, and when the monster and Yamazaki meets.

I thought this episode would be bad because of this monster, but it was very interesting.

The Godzilla sound bites were music to my ears!

I laughed out loud the moment Yamazaki and the monster locked eyes.

The ending credits music coupled with the scene brought tears to my ears.

Freaking hilarious! xD

Just rewatching this little OVA for fun.

This episode is so weird. I guess there's a lot of homages in there to old japanese films like Godzilla.

Episode strange enough in the end, I was almost exclaim: What the hell is this?
Comedy always pleasant, the daily Patlabor still seems so current! XD
A refined design, animations sufficient.
The OST are fantastic! * _ *

P.S. I voted the sixth possibility ...! ASD

Obvious nods to Gojira, and a really deep ending. Yamazaki is Love. Yamazaki is Life

this was one of the weirdest fucking patlabor episodes ever. It was funny but that last few minutes was just so odd

Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

I have a feeling some of Space Dandy may have gotten ideas from this episode

I watched the films before watching the OVA series.
This one really shocked me, I did not see that coming!
That being said, I still enjoyed it quite a bit! :3

I was imagining it was going to be a giant squid that had somehow gotten trapped in the bay and the "it's a monster" thing would have been a joke that payed off in them getting wrapped up in the fantasy and not considering the realistic possibilities.

I have to agree, this show does feel pretty current!

At first I was like... yeah, a monster...sure...it's just going to be revealed later on that it's a special labor unit that can swim. Then it was revealed that it might be an actual monster as the episode began diving really deep into that scientist's backstory, but I still doubted that it was going to be a literal monster. So when a green, king-kong looking ape with gills popped up I wondered if someone dropped acid in my coffee...it was truly bizarre and I couldn't stop laughing.

Meh, not a fan of this episode. I hope they don't have more goofy stuff like this aquatic monster thingee.

Great episode in its own right, but it felt really out of place in this series. It was more of a Godzilla parody than anything else, and the Patlabor aspects seemed tacked on

Really didn't like this episode, if I'm honest. Hoping there's not more like it. I thought this series was supposed to be relatively realistic? Also hoping it was a dream of some kind, because otherwise it just made absolutely no sense.

Edit: Yeah, I'm thankful the other episodes weren't like this one.

Best ending hahahaha. Kinda reminded me of the Beast Titan.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.
