The Next Generation Patlabor Full Details
Full details about the upcoming live action Patlabor have been revealed! It turns out it's going to more than just a movie as The Next Generation Patlabor will consist of a 12 episode series starting in April 2014 that will lead up to a feature film in 2015. The 12 episodes will be run as a seven part series with theatrical screenings. As the name implies, this is sequel to the original Patlabor and features a new cast of misfits who are trying to scrape by after the Metropolitan Police disbanded Section 1 of the Special Vehicle Unit 2. After the completion of the Babylon project, Labors are less common than they used to be and parts are hard to come by. The new Ingram was cobbled together out of spare parts. Director and producer Mamoru Oshii notes that the series will have a lighthearted tone while the feature film will be more serious.
