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.

Run by a girl calling herself Sailor Lum, there's 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.
Chinese fan Katie Lee's website which I thought was long gone

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

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
Really, really shonky translation of this site's name, so
forgive me. This seems to be a site where Patlabor fans in

contains a chat 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 &
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?
