I, in all honesty, don't know how to react to this... i can only pray it'll not be a disaster.

Im worried it will loose that charm it had, I mean It should be good, but I hope they concentrate on the whole atmosphere not just humor/chars.
that's what live action try to do and honestly i don't really like it (even only focus on story and ignoring the rest)...

Nice! I love Patlabor, and I remember liking a lot of the shorts in Nihon Animator Mihonichi.

I wonder if this means the start of another full run of Japan Animator Expo shorts.
They started in November 2014 last time, so if they do an event like that once every two-years, that seems like it'd have the potential to be really cool. :)

Lets hope this is as good as the original or better. It better not be lolitalized.

Just 10 minutes and no emotion animation on their faces. Bravo, Anno!
Just what you would expect from the Master himself, Mr. Hideaki Anno.

Did the live action sequel ever get subbed past ep 1?
3 of 7 part is subbed IIRC but i don't sure they are even in order and they are just doesn't feel like patlabor... i am not even sure i watch all of them complitely, just remember download them, watch them rondomly and never touch them again...

could become a movie, I hope

I would kill for a new patlabor even if its a new cast, the premise just has so much potential to do pretty much whatever it wants, it can even say fuck it and go full supernatural whenever it wants even though i think those made up some of the weakest parts of the series.

Old franchise that I actually enjoy, but new cast huh...

Not asking for Patlabor 2 to be there, but I'd be nice. Or at least GitS, idk.

Patlabor franchise should never die!

3d CG robots suck. Not a huge fan of patlabor anyway tbh.

Jul 31, 2016 5:06 AM by black1blade
