A high-school girl named Makoto acquires the power to travel back in time, and decides to use it for her own personal benefits. Little does she know that she is affecting the lives of others just as much as she is her own.
Great follow-on (16 Esp) to the original Patlabor anime TV Series!!
This is the follow-on 16 episode OVA to the original 47 episode TV series & is directed by Mamoru Oshii who then made Patlabor II (movie) & Ghost in The Shell (movie). No better pedigree.
A mixture of action, comedy & finely drawn personalities - Patlabor is one of my most favourite anime series bar none.
This is an excellent continuation of the original 47 episode TV series & I would recommend it to anyone, but try to watch the original TV series first.
Cute & sassy Nao-chan pilots her Patlabor 'Alphonse' to ultimate victory while worrying that he'll get scratched more than that she's facing death or disfigurement on every mission - you'll love her! Patlabor = Patrol 'Labor' (a Police 'Labor'), a huge powered armoured fighting exoskeleton with the pilot inside. Used to combat 'Labor' crime, as 'Labors' are employed extensively in construction & many other industries. Set in the near future in Japan.
I gave this 9 because I never give 10 except to masterpieces. But this is masterly enough & appeals to all ages, family friendly but with real depth under the zany action & comedy!
