All animation works in this series have been released as video softwareBandai visualChanged its name from April 2018, 4BANDAI NAMCO ARTSHowever, at the moment, the company name at the time of release is listed below.


A walking work machine that applies robot technologyLaborSet in the near future of Tokyo, where "" will play an active role, the activity of the newly established Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department's labor unit "Special Vehicle Division XNUMX" will be depicted.OVAIt is a pioneering work that developed a media mix that was rare at that time, starting with manga serialization, novels, movies and game works in parallel.[1], Still many related works and goods are still released.

Work background

In the work,Global warmingTo prepare for the danger that Tokyo will be submerged due to sea level rise due toTokyo BayA huge national civil engineering project to construct a huge embankment that doubles as a crossing road and reclaim much of the bay into usable land.Babylon projectIs being promoted. In addition, the land created by the development will be sold,Capital AreaIt is said that the land shortage of theバ ブ ルInfluences the work background. In the process,1995 There was a direct earthquake in the center of Tokyo, and the reclamation project also serves to deal with the large amount of debris generated at this time. Also,Bubble periodVery prosperous to be in an extended world of.

In the city center, many reconstruction projects after the earthquake disaster and development projects related to the Babylon project have been carried out, which contributed to the rapid spread and development of labor. The large project of land reclamation of Tokyo Bay naturally has a very large impact on the environment, and caused a strong opposition movement centered on environmental protection groups and fisheries personnel, and even escalated.Environmental terrorismThere is even destructive activity called.

Since it was a world set in the 1980s, the difference from reality was 1998,Cold WarIs in a stateWest Germany,USSRThere are settings and rivers associated with them.

On the other hand, mainly PCインターネットRegarding the situation around the world, it is set that it has developed to the same level as the actual 2000s.[Note 3].. Strictly speaking, at the time when this setting was invented (from the end of the cartoon version to the preparation for the production of "WXIII", the middle of the 1990s-the latter half), the broadband environment was not yet in place, and it was set as a situation looking a little ahead. However, the release of the main part was delayed for several years, and as a result, the real world caught up.

Work description

The original isheadgear.. This work isMedia mixIt is a work that introduced a method called, and there are anime and manga versions. The basic settings of all works are the same, and characters and appearance mecha are mostly shared, but the atmosphere of each work is quite different.

Originally planned and decided as an animation,Yuuki MasamiThe manga by was started first, and then the anime work was released. Throughout the whole series, most laborers and other mechanic designsHiroshi DebuchiHowever, various interfaces such as monitor consoles and sub-mechanismsYoshinori Sayama, Mainly for aircraftShoji Kawamori, Equipment of the Ground Self-Defense Force, etc.Hajime KatokiIt was often shared by In addition, Debuchi is also the supervisor of the third movie version, and in some episodes may serve as director or storyboard, and is involved in the series in various ways.

The initial OVA series recorded a hit of selling 5 each volume for both video and LD, and selling about 2 if the special version 40 volumes were included.[2].. Since then, it has developed into comics, movies, albums, and TV series, and has conquered almost all media.[3].. It was said that the popular hits on TV were turned into movies and OVAs, which was the pattern of hits until then, but this work was the first work to turn from OVA to TV series.[4].1991 - 1992 (3-4 years) was delivered to the telephone service, the story was told by the character himself, such as the story behind the character was not told in this volume. This sound source was then recorded on the DVD version of the new OVA series.

After that, with the second OVA1993 (5) With the second movie version, which is the de facto final version of the release, the anime series will be separated, but after the completion of the manga version, about 2 years later2002 In (14), the spin-off works "WXIII" and "Minipat", which are the third movie version, were released to the theater. 3 more years later2016 (28) was produced with a new generation of staff as the main axisrebootThe short film "Mobile Police Patlabor REBOOT" was screened at the event.

History of establishment

1980 eraAt the beginning,EkodaAt a coffee shop "Manga Gallery" in Yuuki, a gathering called "Magic Empire Doronto" to which Yuuki belonged,Tomato Aki"Dronto Wide Theater"[Note 4][Note 5]Robot robot for work "Laber Machine"[Note 6]"Lightning Fire Galaxless" is born[5].. But at that timeCombat Mecha XabungleIs popular, and Galacless's project ends within the category of friends[5].

The next thing Yuuki came up with was a police drama called Bydor[5].. The bidor was made up of subtitles for all 26 episodes, and there were detailed settings such as "three times the robot entering the city in the city" "the stage of Japan in the near future"[5].. At that time, YuukiShimokitazawa"Parallel Creation"[Note 7]Is appearing inHiroshi DebuchiWhen I showed you the prototype of Patlabor, I decided to bring it to Sunrise[6].

After that, I will be in charge of the series composition and the scriptKazunori ItoAnd will be in charge of character designAkemi TakadaI got to know them, and at that timeBandaiWas a producerShin UnozawaAnd the concrete start of the Patlabor project takes shape.[6].. The name Patlabor originated from the military raver "Batlabor" that Yuuki thought of, and it was also Yuuki who independently planned it as Patlabor.[6].

Initially, from the composition that one episode was completed, the four Yukira thought that the series director could not be set up only by the director of each episode, but since 1 books will be released as an OVA in one pack, the budget and schedule Can be managedOshii MamoruUnozawa recommended that, and it became the formation of headgear[7].. The fact that Patlabor has no original work and headgear is "the original author group" means that it is an original animation project[Note 8]There is also a meaning of division of labor[7].

Regarding the manga version, Yuuki had a stance of "I can draw if the project is crushed" when I was planning for Sunrise, so I can not look back on that time and draw what I once deposited As a result, he answered that "because it was animated" in the background depicting the cartoon.[7].. Regarding the difference between the manga version and other media versions, he said that there was no opinion or request from each side such as arranging, and there was no statement.[7].

Yuuki referred to Patlabor as "the number one earner in his work" in an interview in 2007.[7].


Yuuki's intention for this work[Note 9]Groups organized by[7].. It started with Yuuki and Debuchi, and finally joined Oshii in a manner invited by Ito.[9].

The name is Takada. There was also a candidate called "Fictional Defense Force" by Ito, but it was rejected[10][Note 10].. It is attached because five members work with their heads as tools and the heroes are equipped.[11].

Oshii said he had a lot of dissatisfaction with the fact that he had participated when the basic plot was solidifying.[7], Oshii was shunned as the creator of esoteric works at the time, and the industry was dried up, making life difficult. As a director, Oshii, this work recognizes the turning point of rebirth and both himself and others.

Originally, the city was planned as the background of the work, but Oshii's ideaLandfillIt was suddenly changed to. The reason for this was to save his own strong feelings for the landfill and the labor required to draw the buildings and cars that are indispensable for the battle in the city. Also,Urusei YatsuraTake advantage of the experience ofDedicated to pre-school and extra curricularIt was Oshii who proposed a person arrangement with the captain as a teacher and a drama in the style of school things.

Regarding the design in anime, there are scenes where Oshii's preferences and intentions pass, for example, in the second movie version, initially Shinohara Heavy Industry'sConnectionThere was a setting to paint in two colors, but it was cut by a word of Oshii's "Tsunagi is white"[11].. Takada said of Oshii, "I think Patlabor doesn't need flashiness and glitz."[11][Note 11].


World setting for each work

Although the basic settings and characters are the same, the story development and settings in each work are treated as parallel worlds.

  • The first OVA, the first movie version, and novels 1-1 are drawn at the same time.
  • The TV version and the new OVA are drawn at the same time. The time axis is different from the initial OVA, and it is drawn with slightly different settings. Although it is a different world than the manga version, some stories and settings, such as the Griffon edition, are based on the manga version.
  • The manga version is drawn on its own timeline. Characters from different worlds have appeared in different roles.
  • The second movie version is a work directed by Mamoru Oshii, like the first OVA movie version, but the telephone service at the time of release revealed that it was a world linked to the new OVA on the TV version, the special car 2 section The location of the building also does not exist on the reclaimed land on Jonan Island, which was set in the first OVA movie version. On the other hand, new OVA deployment1992 In the drama of "Mobile Police Patlabor CD BOX" released in (4), while looking back on the contents of the initial OVA, it is sent out as Noaaki and Yuma who are dispatched as test pilots to Shinohara Heavy Industries, and as a test machine. The figure of type 98 is drawn. Also, in the movie version of the second movie "TOKYO WAR", Ota only left a will to Kakanuki and no bear to the bear ear. You can also see some depictions of what it looks like.
  • The third movie version is based on "Waste No. 3" in the manga version.On the other hand, in reality, the characters and settings of the first and second theatrical versions and the TV version are mixed everywhere.Heisei notation is used in the second movie version and the TV version, which is different from the setting in 13 for the third movie version.

In addition, the work explanation page in the `` Mobile Police Patlabor Official Site'' opened in 2018 also explains parallel development, and it is said that it can be roughly divided into the following four axes.[12].

  • "Cartoon version" axis (unique time axis that does not intersect with other axes)
  • Starting from "early OVA", the axis leading to "theatrical version 1st work", "theatrical version 2nd work", and "live-action version"
  • Axis of "Novel version" (5 volumes in total) ("Novel version" is based on the settings of "Initial OVA" and "1st movie version", but also incorporates the settings of "TV version")
  • The axis that starts from "TV version" and leads to "New OVA" and "EZY"

As mentioned above, the third movie version is based on the episode "Waste No. 3" of the "manga version", but the "first movie version", "second movie version", and "TV version" Since the settings are mixed, it can be said that it is connected to or not connected to any of the three axes other than the "manga version". Short stories such as "Mini Pato" and "REBOOT" are extra editions that do not belong to any axis.


A general-purpose multi-legged walking work machine that emerged with the development of robot technologyLabor(Labor) has rapidly developed and spread, and has come to be used in all fields, whether military or civilian. Especially in the metropolitan area including Tokyo,Global warmingA large dike between Kawasaki and Kisarazu in Tokyo Bay to prepare for sea level rise[13]When,1995 For the "Babylon Project", a national project aimed at three birds with one stone, to solve the land shortage in the Tokyo metropolitan area by reclaiming the inside of the embankment as well as disposing of the rubble caused by the Great Tokyo South Offshore Earthquake that occurred in Japan. Most of the laborers were concentrated.

However, as a result, he opposes the Babylon project from various criminal acts using Labor (drunk brawl and theft, as well as accidents by Labor.Eco terroristTerrorist activities caused by) have become a social problem.

To deal with this "labor crime"Metropolitan Police Department TheSecurity departmentHe introduced a labor force to a special-purpose unit inside and assigned him. However, at the beginning of the launch, those were only strengthening the armor of old-fashioned laborers, and in the situation where the labor is improving the performance with the progress of the day, even if it is a special equipment unit that gathered excellent human resources I couldn't cope with the crime. And1998 The Metropolitan Police Department has newly added "Special Course Vehicle XNUMX Division Company" as a specialized department within the security department, commonly known as "Special car section XNUMXWas established. This is the birth of Patrol Labor, commonly known as "Patlabor".

It has been decided that the platoon will form a new "second platoon" in addition to the "first platoon" that operates the conventional aircraft. The second platoon will be manufactured and introduced with Shinohara Heavy Industries' 98 type AV (Advanced Vehicle) "Ingram", which is the latest model dedicated to Patlabor. However, the second platoon given the new rover, except for one incumbent officer, has only zero experience of leaving the preparatory school, and when he became the captain, he wondered whether he would be an elite or independent. It was a group that said, "Is it going to be a fool corps?" In this way, the second platoon of the second section of the special car, which was later acclaimed and praised, was launched.

The story is a youthful group of young Patlabor members growing up in conflict, an industrial drama, and a conspiracy drama. These are stories that are developed in parallel.

In this workLaborIs a "multipedal work machine" operated by humansMech robotThat is. The official name is "Multi-legged large type"Manipulator(In the initial OVA, it was introduced as a "general-purpose humanoid work machine" and at the beginning of the TV series as "a generic name for industrially developed robots"). The name (trademark) of the "multi-legged manipulator" that first appeared in the world of work was "Labor 90", which was originally owned by Shinohara Heavy Industries, but after releasing it, these working machines As a general name for (Yumbo,Stapler,マ ジ ッ クIt is said that it became popular. After that, various forms of labor were born, and if we look at things such as underwater only, it is not necessarily only those that have a multi-legged walking system. There are also wheeled lovers, and in addition to the multi-legged walking mode, the number of vehicles that can run on general public roads in a manner similar to the original "car" is increasing. However, when the destructive power goes to a crime, the patrol rover (patlabor), on which the protagonist of the work is aboard, plays an active role because the existing police force cannot counter it.

The origin of this is said to be "control of multi-legged walking machine" which was studied in the Koyanagi classroom of Jonan Institute of Technology in the manga version. In addition, this classroom produces many people involved in the center of labor development.

Labors that appear in the work are mainlyCivil engineering machineryIs treated as an extension of. It is legally referred to as a "special vehicle", and the aircraft itself is also referred to as "each vehicle" in a similar manner to the vehicle. Therefore, as a ruleLicense plateIs installed, and a multi-legged controller license is required to operate it.A driving school has been established in the work as well as a car, but it is still technically in its infancy, and both general work and security / military aircraft are "(except for the fire control system) the basic maneuvering system is There is also the problem that it does not change.As a result, some impulsively start fighting or sabotaging with ravers or become terrorists.In the manga version, Goto points to Bud and describes it as "practical if you are accustomed to it from within your child."On the other hand, the license plate, which started in 1998, the first year of the work setting, has not been converted to three digits, and the main robot, Ingram, is also equipped with a two-digit number.

This labor isTetsujin 28Unlike the existing giant robots such as ”, which are anime and manga robots, there is one exception, but they do not have beam weapons.[Note 12]I can't fly in the sky[Note 13].. The concept of the production side was not a robot as a “weapon” until then, but a “robot that blends into everyday life”. For these,Mini Pat] It is explained in detail in the second episode. Manufacturersmotor ShowSuch as an exhibition (Labor Show),Insurance companyHas sold insurance for laborers, and the police have also taken out insurance exclusively for Patlabor, and settings that give the impression of a work machine are often appearing.However, even if the position of the robot in the work is a daily necessities, fighting battles often end up in the mountains in the story, and in that respect, the tradition of giant robot anime and manga was observed.

By the way, in this work, even if it is an unmanned aerial vehicle that does not have a cockpit in the body, it is called a "labor" when the presence of the operator is external via wired/wireless. On the other hand, basically those that operate semi-autonomously by programs etc.Mech robot".

Past Patlabor

Past "Patlabor" varies depending on the work.

  • In the initial OVA version and the first movie version, Shinohara Heavy Industries Type 1 AV (AV-98, AV means Advanced Vehicle) did not have the nickname "Ingram". However, there is a novel version that follows this trend. Also, in the manga version, Nomei did not name Unit 98 "Alphonse" (I wrote my name on the upper left arm on page 1, Volume 2 of the book). The first platoon machine is the Shinohara Heavy Industries Type 133 Asuka MPL, which is a modification of the Type 96 Asuka SSL (commonly known as General) at the Shinohara Heavy Industries Tokorozawa Plant. In the first movie version, the introduction of the Shinohara Heavy Industry 95 type AV (AV-X1), which was designed with HOS installed, was postponed due to the discovery of a serious defect in the OS HOS and the runaway of the prototype. Later, it moved to the novel version and was reorganized as "Shinohara Heavy Industries AV-00 Peacemaker". By the way, in the first movie version, the TV version and the new OVA version, the name of each machine is "○ machine", but in the initial OVA version, the second and third movie versions, it is called "○ car". ing.
  • As of the 1st episode of the TV version, the 96nd platoon is using the surplus "Shinohara Heavy Industries Type 97 Asuka MPL" (painting is significantly different from the initial OVA version) due to the reorganization of the 97st platoon. The platoon was using the second generation "Manabe Heavy Industries Type 0 Kai Python". In addition, in the same series, the caption "designed for police from the beginning" is given to this "XNUMX Kai Kai Python". The successor to the XNUMXst squadron is the Shinohara Heavy Industries Zero Type AV (AV-XNUMX) Peacemaker.
  • The manga version of the first platoon plane was the Shinohara Heavy Industries Type 95 Gorilla, which had a completely different design from the video media series. It is unclear whether "gorilla" is a unique name like "Ingram" or a nickname that has spread among users. In the second volume, the model was changed to "2 type break", but in the 96th volume, "Shinohara Heavy Industries AVS-14" is introduced.
  • In the movie version 2, all aircraft have been replaced with the Shinohara Heavy Industries Type 2 AV (AV-2 Variant) due to model conversion.
  • However, in addition to the settings that can be extracted from these works, the magazine "Hobby Japan] And “B-CLUB”MookThere are many settings announced in, and it is not possible to give a clear genealogy.
  • Also, the original "Type 98 AV" designed by Debuchi is only for the initial OVA, and is very different from other works. After the TV version, the "98-type AV Ingram" is a manga version that Yuuki redesigned based on the design of Debuchi, and Debuchi et al. added the setting of the initial OVA version.
  • In addition to this, there is also the “Road Runner” of the Kanagawa Prefectural Police Traffic Task Force as a labor introduced by other prefectural police. The NY Police Department has also introduced "Shinohara Heavy Industries AV-0 Peacemaker" and "AV-02 Crash Buster".

Patlabor as a "real robot"

This work was originally planned as an OVA, and also the main sponsorFujifilmTherefore, it is said that "the harmful effect of having a toy maker as a sponsor"Robot animeHad no longstanding problems. By the time the TV version was broadcast, the fan base of the work had solidified, and it was decisive that making visual changes contrary to this would be a disadvantage. As a result, the "patlabor," including the leading mechanism "Type 98 AV Ingram," was said to be the "robot three primary colors."TricolorIt is released from the flashy coloring mainly of color, and the exterior color is a monotone calm exterior that seems to be a police car except for the patrol lights. There are other non-police lovers that actually existConstruction machinery,AutomobileIt has the same kind of color usage as.

This work is a robot animationReal robotHowever, it is not far from the technology that existed in the actual 20th century, rather than the one that came from a different world and the one that imagined a far future, as in conventional giant robots. The point is that Robodesign as a "generation industrial product" sets it apart from conventional products. Therefore, "Superheroes and Evil Battles" or "Battle of Evil" drawn by the giant robot animation up to that point戦 争It's not a "non-daily life" for modern Japanese people like "," but the reality of a scene that a giant robot naturally blends into the "daily life" of reality.

However, director Oshii still seems to be dissatisfied with the disagreement between the world view and the labor design, and later wrote in the book "Mechaphilia.[14]』, Izubuchi is described as a" mechanical designer of mechanical noise ", and it is a reaction to the fact that Raber is hardly active in the second movie version.Oshii wrote the script "Mini Pat] Also in the first and second episodes, the subject is the weapon portrayal and mechanical concept of Labor in this series. "PATLABOR LIVE ACTION MOVIE" pilot film is based on Oshii's intentionAtsushi TakeuchiThe Patlabor that has been redesigned has appeared. Also, in 2011, a novel "Babakuse: Special Police Vehicle Section, Security Department of the Metropolitan Police Department" published by Oshii and a live-action film released in 2014 "THE NEXT GENERATION -Patlabor-』, "Labor" "bipedal robot" is only a temporary fad, and in 2013 when the economy deteriorated it was completely abolished from the problem of cost performance, and in the world of unmanned and miniaturized In the robot market, the Japanese robot industry itself is set to fall behind.

Special car section XNUMX

Although the official name is "Special Department Vehicle Special Section (Special) Vehicle Section XNUMX" by the Metropolitan Police Department, it is commonly called "Special Vehicle Section XNUMX". It is the core organization of the story, and is also the department where the characters, including the main character, Akira Izumino, work. According to the explanation in the manga version, at first there was a "special equipment unit" (company) as a company in the special-purpose vehicle corps. There is an explanation that the special vehicle corps will be "special vehicle section XNUMX" and the labor group will be "special vehicle section XNUMX".

(Note that depending on the time, the notations and names of "Special Vehicles Section XNUMX" and "Specialties Vehicles Section XNUMX" are mixed. The actual name of the Special Vehicles Corps, which is originally a Special Vehicles Division, is the Metropolitan Police Department Special Vehicles Corps. (There is a mistake in “Special Vehicles Section XNUMX” because there is such a confusion of notations in the works, and it can be seen that it was not easy to unify the details in each work due to the media mix.)

A special-purpose unit that was created to counter the crimes caused by the multi-legged walking work machine "Labor" that was rapidly popularized by the national large-scale business "Babylon Project" was strengthened and reorganized to counter the violence and frequent occurrence of labor crimes. This was the second section of this special car. It is currently operated by two units, the 2st platoon and the XNUMXnd platoon, and the platoon leader of the XNUMXst platoon is Shinobu Nagumo.Assistant InspectorThe platoon leader of the XNUMXnd platoon is Kiichi Goto. The unit is not organized more than the company, there is a section manager on it suddenly (though the presence is thin). The first version of the OVA version was Sobue, then Fukushima. In the TV version, Fukushima has been the director since the beginning of the broadcast, but there is an episode in which Sobue appears as the previous manager.

The ridge of the 13nd section of the special car is a landfill site that can be said to be a solitary island on land (the image of Odaiba in 1988, a landfill site under curing after landfill work) ・In the initial OVA version, the tip of Jonan Island It is built in a non-existing landfill site in and is used by platoon members and maintenance crews. During the breaks, you can enjoy the idyllic scenery, such as fishing, grooming the vacant fields, and shopping for food and drink on your own motorcycle.

実 際 のOdaibaAlready in 1998Fuji Television Network, IncThere is the current office building of (1997),Tokyo Big SiteWas built (1996)Comic marketEtc. (from the same summer C50) are being held.

Although it is a unit under the direct control of the Security Bureau of the Metropolitan Police Department, it is far from the main government building of Sakuradamon, and in a sense it is a workplace with a unique atmosphere.Only the section chief and the administrative department have offices in the main government building / security department, but in the manga version, the frequency of Fukushima section chiefs going to the landfill is increasing, and at the same time, the depictions of police officers / staff other than the labor members / maintenance team are increasing.Even the platoon leaders Goto and Nagumo are in a position to be seen as "island exiles" off the career advancement course, and Izumi, who has been assigned to the second section of the special car, said "I can no longer advance" from instructors and colleagues during the prep school days. It is pitiful (however, regarding this, according to Goto's "back of business card" plan (described later), he is a "labor platoon specialist police officer" who was "forcibly cultivated" by a preparatory student, omitting the conventional process and specializing in labor. It is thought that this is because.Goto himself points to his platoon and ridicules himself as an "independent foolish corps."However, the existing "First Platoon" at the beginning of the play is positioned as an elite unit selected from all police officers, and has high morale and morale, and is treated with awe under the platoon leader Nagumo.

operating system

In this work, it can be said that the robots that appeared in fiction at that time (including not only general SF but also novel) are novel.operating systemThe existence and operation of the robot are depicted (not limited to OS S, but the violence device called police, bureaucratic mechanism, giant company, robot etc. which is a collection of mechatronics,システム"Is a keyword of this work).

In the following description, the manga version (some of which is also theatrical version), which is also referred to as "The story of the battle of Labor's operating system", is used as a reference.

Unlike conventional construction machines, labor requires a high degree of control in terms of software.Real-time operating system(In the real world, ROS(Robot Operating System),V-Sido OS Labor Operating System (abbreviation LOS) with advanced robot functions is used in most cases. In addition, (in the description in the workWORMOr rewrite typeoptical diskNoMagneto-optical diskSomething like that is used exclusively) but with a system such as learning that fits the operator such as Patlabor, it cannot be started without its personal data.

Each company has developed LOS for their own use, but it is suggested from the work that it can be rewritten by the user's will. There is also a scene where you set up and install it by yourself when you first start it up. However, it is difficult to obtain it personally.

Comic version

Yuuki MasamiWorks by. 『Weekly Shonen Sunday』(Shogakukan) At1988 (63) Issue 17- 1994 (6) Serialized in No. 23. The 36th (2)Shogakkan Manga AwardYoung boy category award.

The first Griffon game (book 1-5 volumes) until the video animation that had been planned earlier (OVA) version has been made aware of the tie-up, but the manga was serialized first. After that, the character as a work of Yuuki is strong. Yuuki himself said, "I have said this many times, but the project itself is the original work," and I am not the original author. The manga is not the original, so please call it "manga version" or "comic version". ], said in interviews. In addition, the scenario of OVA was written up at the beginning of the cartoon series[34]..However, since the TV series and the new OVA series produced after that use a part of the character, setting, and story of Masami Yuki's manga version as the original, it adds to the complexity of the situation.

The main story is a plot inside a global giant company set in a new industrial field, and the middle and short stories are published against the background of the front and back of modern society and social issues. The content of the work was relatively advanced, such as depicting the problems brought about by globalization in the early 1990s, and it was a unique development in the boys' magazine.As a manga expression, a lot of depictions from a distance are used, and a certain degree of suppression is effective even in battle scenes between laborers.On the other hand, the emotions of the members of the XNUMXnd platoon are delicately depicted, and the comedy color is lighter than the TV anime version (on the other hand, it can also be seen in other Masami Yuki works).MetafictionThe comical character depiction is increasing due to the heavy use of and deformation.Captain Nagumo is a prominent example).Compared to other media, it carefully depicts the process by which each member grows into an adult or a member of society, which is essentially the main theme of this work.

The story covers less than three years from the beginning of 1998, when Noa Izumi took the recruitment test for the Special Vehicle Division 2000, to October 10 after defeating Griffon.

The back cover of the first edition of Shonen Sunday Comics Volume 3 depicts Noaki's face. From the second edition onwards, it has become a horizontal silhouette of "headgear" like other volumes. Since the title logo has also changed, the design of the spine cover is "old version with logo of Nomei's face" "old version with headgear silhouette" "logo with headgear silhouette" There are three types of "new version".

A special appendix of the monthly new type May 1988 issue contains an extra edition drawn according to the settings of the initial OVA series. It is now possible to read the electronic book “Mobile Police Patlabor Extra Edition Operation Manual Chapter 5”. The story was later animated in the TV series.

The favorite edition of the comics began to be published in November 2019, and a total of 11 volumes have been published.In addition to reproducing the color pages at the time of serialization, the conventional book also includes additional frontispieces and concept art that have not been released for the first time.
