The first teaser trailer for the much talked about live-action Patlabor has been released, offering a first glimpse of the visuals in the series. Check it out below :
I’m somewhat curious as to why the personnel of section 2 are decked out in combat gear more suited for desert warfare ? Is it to make them look more badass ? The getup looks more suited for a UN mission to Afghanistan rather than police duties set in a city area (the premise does seem to indicate so).
Nitpicks, I guess. I’m a very big fan of the original anime series, the 2 animated films by Mamoru Oshii (who is also serving as director this time round), so I really hope this will turn out to be a great series.
All 7 Episodes will get a limited theatrical screening starting from the 5th of April 2014. More details on the official site (in Japanese only).6
