Best Patlabor Episodes anon 01/08/2022 (Sat) 07:04:15 No. 6 [Reply]
What's everyone's favorite episode of Patlabor? For me it's a tossup between one of the goofier episodes like the ones where they go into the gator labyrinth and SV2's Longest Day from the original OVA.

Honestly I'm surprised Minipato never went anywhere. It's rather charming and I could have seen it being more than just three theatrical shorts. I get that the series was pretty done by this point but it would have been nice if each character had gotten to narrate their own episode.
Friendly reminder there's currently someone translating the manga! Go check that out if you haven't yet.

The range in quality in the official Patlabor artbooks are hilarious. You go from great stuff like the first two images to... well, take a look,
>>1357 that's not bad art though. it's just c.g probably good for its time too.

give one get one. I start: Outlanders (16.12.1986), great trashy fun on a saturday evening. back of the box blurb: >Scantily clad space princess Kalm arrives on Earth to shake things up! As her father’s armada pummels the Earth’s forces this busty space maiden plunders the planet in search of a good man to call her own. Hapless Earthling Tetsuya finds himself caught between the alien invaders and the warrior woman who would be his wife!

>>1301 LoGH is quite literally one of a kind. The closest thing there is to LoGH is Universal Century Gundam, but even then they're very different franchises. The similarities largely stem from being long character-driven science fiction drama series with tons of different characters from conflicting factions with motivations and schemes, and with Universal Century Gundam (or, at least the first three series and Char's Counterattack), you're going to largely be sticking with the same cast in a long war drama/political plot. There's also a lot of very similar characters between the two. Also, not really like LoGH, but related, there's Irresponsible Captain Tylor, which is a parody of military drama space opera anime in general. The original creator claimed that the main character, Tylor is literally a spoof on Yang Wen-li, so that's why I'm recommending it.
>>1302 >LoGH is quite literally one of a kind. Sad but true. I'm afraid that I'll never find anything so high quality that also caters to my specific tastes in anime (and modern anime is even less likely to have that particular combination for may reasons). Not that anon, by the way. I've heard people claim that the Leijiverse comes close, but I've still yet to watch anything in it. >The original creator claimed that the main character, Tylor is literally a spoof on Yang Wen-li That's funny if true, do you have a source for that?
>>1312 >That's funny if true, do you have a source for that? Not that anon, but the only source I can find is from the Tylor wiki which states that, however I've seen both and there are quite a decent amount of comparisons you can make for both, plus Tylor's light novel came out 2 years after LOGH's ended. Copying what I said from another thread: Tylor is meant to be like Yang, albeit, a hell of a lot more easy going and downright lucky. Working for the "United Planets Space Force" and pretty much joining it for reasons that aren't relating to wanting to fight in battles but being exceptional in the battles he fights. Leading the people around him having no idea if it's dumb luck or incredible genius he plays off as dumb luck. Whereas his main rival opponent is Ru Baraba Dom who is a commander in the Raalgon empire, has long hair, is pretty damn serious a majority of the time and sees Tylor as someone who is incredibly powerful and someone he needs to defeat for the empire to win the fight against the UPSF. (It's been a while since I watched it, I can't fully remember the Raalgon empire's background)
In the first or second episode of Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ there's a scene where a female character faints as part of a gag. I've always enjoyed seeing this happen in live action movies, this is the first time I've gotten the same enjoyment from an anime. This particular scene has no bearing on the plot, we never see this character before or after, and we never even learn her name. I have trouble finding references to this scene online and as far as I can tell this is the only time a woman faints in the entire Gundam franchise. Are there any anime with similar scenes, preferably involving named characters with more relevance to the plot?

>>739 That sounds like a lie or a lot of cope. They sleep facing each other holding hands. It never went full gay because Chiho thought it would scare people away, so Ikuhara put as much romantic subtext as possible into the series

>>746 >chiho saito wasn't the arbiter No but bepapas were a team and they all had their say. This is literally confirmed by interviews with Ikuhara and Saito that she was the one to stop it being gay. The reason why the movie is gay is because it was unrestrained Ikuhara. >it would not make sense for their characters to act like that Did you even watch the show

Didn't expect Trigun to be this bad. These production values are on par with those Lost Universe webms. Surprised there was no backlash against it and that the show is remembered fondly in spite of this.
3 posts and 3 images omitted.
While I don't think Trigun is bad by any means, I do wonder how I feel about it these days, since I last watched it around 7 years ago and this was when I was just really getting into anime (had only seen around 50 shows prior) and thought it was really fucking cool and had some really interesting episodes and fun action. These days, I wonder if I'd find it somewhat bland and not as fun? Great opening though, entire reason I watched it back in the day. Some anon on /v/ said it was his ringtone and it interested me so much I had to give it a watch.
>>1328 >but the animation was pretty typical of the day I've watched many shows that had far better animation than Trigun, Kesnhin, YYH, Bebop, Infinite Reviuys to name a few. Not only does Trigun have awful weightless animation but you get QUALITY every episode, this level of production is unacceptable for an action show.
>>1334 Welcome to 90% of pre-2000s TV anime, enjoy your stay.
>>1342 I hear that Trigun is one of the worse ones. I mean I watched Lain and Evangelion too to add to the list of tv anime but none looked this bad.
>>1343 >I hear that Trigun is one of the worse ones Trigun doesn't have that reputation, where are you hearing this?

>>1305 >More to point I feel like doing it the way they did actually gives it more it's own sense of legitimacy and identity rather than just making it like the old one but with a new coat of paint. Yeah, that's true. Honestly I do think I compare this to the original too much when I should really think of it as it's own thing. While I did find their characters to be different from what we have before and thus a bad thing, I guess it's actually a good thing in the end since they are their own unique characters over being "Kei 2" and "Yuri 2". >Plus with a lot of the story being about them needing to live up the legacy of their name does sort of paint it as having respect for the original but also wanting to be unique. Yeah, I felt that too. I do wish it was confirmed to be the original Dirty Pair but imagining them being in their 30s or something would be quite odd (plus one would be dead and the other out for revenge). >they wanted it to be more classic Pair but by that time Kei's actress had retired and Yuri's wasn't willing to do it "without her partner" Which is nice. How fitting.
>>1295 Alright, so Flash 2 was better than Flash that's for sure. I found the location of 90s Tokyo to both be odd and interesting. Obviously, Dirty Pair should be set in the "anime space future" of the 80s/90s so plonking them in Tokyo 1995 just comes off as odd, but at the same time I quite liked it because I do enjoy the setting of 90s Tokyo despite it being used a lot in other anime and for Dirty Pair it's actually a new, unique location. Touma was a fun third wheel to throw into the mix, but I do wish he was utilized a bit more since he was just there for the first episode and would've been fun to see him in more dangerous situations and having to adapt to them since he's only really in one in the final episode. His character design reminded me of someone else though and I couldn't put my finger on who or from what I'm remembering his design from. Maybe Yugioh GX's professor. As for the episodes, I both loved and somewhat disliked them to be honest. I found Flash 2 to be endearing but also very off the mark. An episode where the girls have to stay at a boarding school because there's no where else to live with a "ghost haunts the school" plot, sure that's funny and interesting I guess but that's really not what I think when I think Dirty Pair. Oh, speaking of Dirty Pair they finally said it in the show which was nice. I did enjoy the episodes overall though, even if a side of me was saying "this isn't Dirty Pair". The Touma love episode was great honestly, found it to be quite humourous and enjoyed the slice of life elements quite a bit so that was my favourite of the bunch and the episode with the con artist was great too. I found the final episode to be somewhat lackluster though, I didn't really care for the stakes and honestly forgot what they were even trying to stop and why. They really love reminding us that Kei is a woman as well, think it's been mentioned around three to four times now. The whole transvestite part was also oddly out of the blue but still quite funny. I get it, Kei's a tomboy (hot tbh) and she hates when people think she's a man but it just seems odd to keep on mentioning it. The original Dirty Pair had around three mentions of it and an episode around the idea that Kei is mistaken for a man and it didn't come off as so "in your face". Also, Yuri still feels like she's basically getting no actual character in this, from what I can gather she likes dates and being a girly girl, I guess? Still feel like Kei is the main character and Yuri is the secondary character here. Still, I can at least feel some character off them which is better than the first season, although I do wish Yuri was a bit more fleshed out. Holy shit, the production quality on this shot up as well. The skyline in pic related looks like a fucking photo, dunno how Sunrise was able to produce things of this quality back then but it's sorely missed. Wonder if the animators just looked out a window and drew what they saw for it. Speaking of the girls, who did Japan prefer in the end? Was there a popularity poll posted anywhere over the years? Anyhow, onto Season 3.
>>1309 Well, Flash 3 was fun. I say that for all of Dirty Pair but I really did just find myself chuckling or smiling at whatever stupid plot the girls have found themselves in this episode. Didn't really care for the OP and ED this time around, really liked 1 and 2's though. Alright, the first episode was surprisingly good. I like concepts like this and this episode was surprisingly good at keeping everything suspenseful. Once again though, here's a very KEI CENTERED EPISODE which again reinforces her as the main character in my eyes. Did find it funny seeing her change a diaper then get embarrassed over the lil baby penis (pure tbh) and ending it with having to "breastfeed" the baby to avoid capture which is both dumb and somewhat smart for a person in her extreme situation. That second episode though....what an interesting one, Monica was a CCS reference, right? The entire episode was stupid but I didn't really hate it or anything, just laughed at how odd it was. The dub (which I decided to do for this episode) also made the insults a lot more funny too. That third episode was a lot of fun too, always enjoy sports anime and having a generic "HARD WORK AND GUTS" coach is quite fun, I do wish we saw some actual Volleyball instead of the training part, that episode also felt very "Flash" since I couldn't imagine the originals doing an episode like this. I liked the 4th episode as well, the kid was quite unique, can't think of another character that tried to copy a girl as a robot and love the robotic version when the real one was there the entire time, was quite humourous to see actually and I didn't expect Yuri to wear the original costume in this episode, what a nice surprise. Also, very nice to have a Yuri centered episode as well, feels like we're always with Kei. I wonder if the kid was meant to represent the fans in some way, felt like a message to them to not focus on a fake girl you've made pure in your head (Yuri) and instead go out and find a real girl. As for the final episode, it reminded me slightly of the last episode of Bubblegum Crisis which was nice, plus having a chief centered episode was nice. Always enjoy when there's some aspect like a child hostage the good guys need to deal with, although I do wish there was a bit more action. Overall, I'd rate Flash as inferior but not as bad as I was led to believe it was. For me, it goes Flash 2 > 3 > 1 since 2 was probably the most interesting despite it's very normal setting, and 3 was just a bunch of fun disconnected episodes that almost felt like the team were told to write whatever instead of giving the 3WA actual cases (although, felt very fan service-y). Whereas 1 felt somewhat directionless and *new* which makes sense, they understood the characters by 2 I'd say. Not really much else I can say, honestly. It was nice to go through all of Dirty Pair, including Flash and see what it was all about. It wasn't an amazing 10/10 series or anything, but it's a fun show, with interesting plots and action and I'd say that everyone should at least watch the original series. The music alone is fantastic. Dirty Pair is an 8/10, Flash is a 7/10. Also, a shame there's nothing else to discuss. Guess this thread can drop down a few pages before an eventual bump by another anon.
I actually get a few of the episodes of Flash 2 and 3 mixed up order wise but I did enjoy them both. The volley ball episode being a prominent stand out, for a few reasons, but there's some good ones in there. It's a bit of a shame we didn't get anymore because I feel like they were really starting to develop their stride as they went on. Maybe see a movie or something.
