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.

Patlabor Fansites in English

.

Mobile Police Patlabor
Chinese fan Katie Lee's website which I thought was long gone after Geocites shut down a few years back. While the Chinese version seems to have vanished, you can still find all the English language sections of the site including sections on her fan art, a list of Chinese and Japanese Patlabor books and magazines, cosplay, a gallery of images from the anime, phone cards and shitajiki.

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?

SHIFT | 066 | PATLABOR THE MOVIE 3
A Japanese online magazine in English that includes an interview with Tori-miki about his screenplay for "WXIII Patlabor the Movie 3".

Nausicaa.net - Miyazaki vs Oshii around Patlabor 2
