Oldtaku no Radio # 039 – Patlabor (OVAs)

It’s time again for Anime Secret Santa, and a certain special someone left us one heck of a present to unpack: Patlabor! While we were given the OVAs and movies to review, we had more than enough to talk about with just the OVAs, so we’ll get around to the movies on a bonus episode or three. We talk about the OVAs as a collection in general and then get into specifics about each of the six OVAs (counting the two-parter as a single OVA), and the results, knowing the inclinations of the two hosts, may surprise you! Happy holidays to all, and a special thanks to our secret Santa.

Stream the Patlabor OVAs on HIDIVE.
Buy the whole shebang via Sentai or Rightstuff or Amazon.

    • Jared Nelson's profile

      Jared discovered anime in the early 1990s through stacks of third-hand fandubs and Streamline Pictures tapes. By the tender age of 16, he was humming Macross 7 songs in art class, dreaming of Asuka Langley and hanging Rurouni Kenshin posters on his wall. A few years later he moved to Japan where he worked as an ALT (assistant language teacher) in Ibaraki and Fukuoka Prefectures. While he returned home with a deep appreciation for Japan, its culture, and its public transit system, Jared fell out of anime fandom and only returned in 2010. A self-proclaimed 3rd-level bard, Jared enjoys tabletop gaming and game design, video gaming, giant robots, history, comics, and most recently manga. He is also eternally late to the party.
