The date is 2002, three years after the events of PATLABOR 1-Mobile Police. The destruction of a United Nations Labor team in South East Asia begins the build-up to a deadly terrorist plan that threatens to send shockwaves throughout Japan's military. With evidence of an impending military takeover, the scattered members of the original SVD (Special Vehicle Division) must gather to defend the city against danger. To make matters worse, the mastermind behind the operation is none other than Nagumo's former teacher and ex-lover Tsuge. Can Nagumo stay true to her oath to uphold the law in the face of Tsuge's destructive plan for revenge? The countdown to armed revolution and panic on the streets of Tokyo begins now...

Hannah's comments: The director Mamuro Oshii has becomeone of my favorite anime-directors. So I'll guess you can think what I think about Patlabor. I really like the animation, all of it, and good background music as well. As Ghost in the Shell films, I think I need to watch those two filmsonce again, or several times. Quite tricky to fully understand all of it, when you watch it the first time. Hard to say which is/are the best, the films (number 1 and 2) or the tv-series. This one was a little easier to follow than the first film. But still very good.
