Patlabor begins

March 13th, 2008 by Author

It’s old, it’s mecha, and it kicks butt. Say what you want about Patlabor, but it certainly is entertaining [1]. It oozes with forgotten simplicity of purpose (or at least this is what I think so far).

BTW… I became so used to the cliches from the turn of the century that Clancy badly confuses me. She seems to have “evil” and “agenda” stamped on her forehead. The eyes, the askew glances, cold demeanor… I cannot believe that they are part of the character and not a stereotype. But apparently it’s only a coincidence.

Noa though? Earnest like Naruto.

[1] I’m watching the OAV (actually it was broadcast; some OAV, that).
