Masami Yuukis Mobile Police Patlabor
has remained popular since the manga was first animated in 1988. In the near future, huge robots called Labors perform heavy physical work; as the robots sometimes get involved in accidents and crimes, the Tokyo police need Patlabors (an elision of "Patrol Labors") to handle the problems. The New Files
continues the adventures of Noa Izumi and misfits of Special Vehicles Division #2. Executives from the industrial giant Shaft have created Griffin, a prototype mecha
with potential military uses. To demonstrate its capabilities, they stage a series of incidents in Tokyo that potential customers can witness from high-rise hotels. Division #2 has to tackle the powerful black mecha
, despite budget shortages and legal restrictions on their activities. Fans of the earlier versions of Patlabor
will enjoy seeing Izumi, Ota, Kanuka, and Goto back in action. (Rated 13 and older: robot vs. robot violence, brief nudity, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon
