"Those unfamiliar with the Patlabor series may be surprised to learn that it dates back to the bygone age of the 1980′s. The Original OVA Series presented in this release was the first release of what would become two separate timelines spanning movies, anime series, and OVAs. Interestingly, this OVA series would be the first part of Patlabor’s so called “Movie Timeline”, that would continue into a movie trilogy. But what about this OVA series itself, does it stand the test of time worthy of being revived or best left in the fleeting memories of those that saw it back in the day?"
