Here you will find links to just about
every Patlabor website on the web plus some other related sites and pages. You might note that a lot of these fan Patlabor websites haven't
been updated in many years, which isn't too surprising, but rather disheartening
to see. With Yahoo! closing Geocities in October 2009, many of the older (and
better) Patlabor fan sites have disappeared. If you know of any more sites which aren't listed here, please email me
the details so I can put a link up to them.

some music from the series and her own fan art on there at the
moment. Looks like it hasn't been updated in quite a while.

cosplay, a gallery of images from the anime, phone cards and shitajiki.

Fansites in Japanese
Special Vehicle Section 2

I'm not too sure if my shonky translation of the website's name
is correct, but anyway it's a great little site which contains a
Labors database, info on computer games, manga and book info, CD soundtrack info, pictures and info on various
merchandise (phone cards, models etc), and a section on the weird "Super Deformed" Patlabor anime
short that apparently appeared in a
SD Gundam movie.

Japanese fansite compiling data from the series including cast
and staff lists and a section of the real locations in the

As it sounds. This is the site where you sign up. It also
contains a message board. Not sure if it is still active as it
has been updated since 2004.
Reclaimed Land Club (Japanese Language Only)
Really, really shonky translation of this site's name, so
forgive me. This seems to be a site where Patlabor fans in Japan

room and links. The site map with the gifs of the Patlabor
cast peering through doors is rather cute.

Anime News Network - Buried Treasure: Patlabor TV & OAVs
Justin Sevakis' fairly extensive review of the TV series and
both OVA series for his regular column "Buried Treasure" from
May 2008. The only quibble I have is that there are some
factual errors regarding availability. There are no hour long
compilations of the OVA or TV series (and never have been), and
the TV and OVA series were (and still are) in print in Japan as
individual box sets. Also Sevakis claims that the New OVA Series
is called the "V-Files" in Japan. Um, no... Where the hell did
he get that idea from?
