Patlabor The Mobile Police: Original OVA Series

 (1988-1989)

Patlabor The Mobile Police: Original OVA Series Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In the future, rapidly advancing technology gives birth to giant robots known as "Labors," so named for their usefulness in heavy industry. However, this also gives rise to "Labor crimes," resulting the the need for a new branch of law enforcement equiped with and dedicated to the policing of Labors. When Izumi Noa, a female police officer, becomes the newest recruit of Special Vechicals Devision 2, she and her top of the line "Patrol Labor" (or "Patlabor") Alphonse are swept into a series of adventures featuring crazed construction workers, eco-terrorists, and sea monsters.

Patlabor The Mobile Police: Original OVA Series Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Patlabor The Mobile Police The Original OVA Series is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Maiden Japan with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.34:1. This is most definitely "old school" animation style, miles apart from Oshii's later Ghost in the Shell sleekness, so some may be surprised by the patently old fashioned look of this series, which in some ways at least is comparable to that of Dragon Ball Z. This has a very nicely filmic look that doesn't appear to have been overly scrubbed for its high definition presentation. Colors are beautifully robust and often very vivid. Line detail is certainly decent, but never approaches the pristine levels of modern day CGI outlines. The elements used for this transfer are in very good overall condition.


Patlabor The Mobile Police: Original OVA Series Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Patlabor The Mobile Police The Original OVA Series features lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mixes in both English and Japanese. As some anime fans are aware, there have been occasional audio dropouts on some Sentai distributed releases, but my cursory review of both tracks revealed no such issues (this screener arrived quite late and in order to get the review up in a timely manner, I toggled between the audio tracks and have thus not listened to both of them in their entirety, but if any fan notices an anomaly, let me know where, I'll check my disc and update the review as necessary). Fidelity is fine and in fact there's no discernable difference in amplitude or effects mixing between the two. Dialogue is cleanly presented, effects are well prioritized and dynamic range is suitably wide.
