Action Channel bled into October this year, but that's fine, because I'm taking a week or two off to work on the Halloween episode!
Patlabor 3 is a strange beast. It's barely a Patlabor movie, it's barely a mecha movie, it's barely an adaptation of its source material, and it's... well, it's kind of all over the place. It's a kaiju horror film, it's a hardboiled detective noir, it's a thriller, it's a buddy cop film, a tragedy, etc. I'm surprised that Wasted 13 didn't end up being an interdimensional alien. But all in all, still compelling enough to rewatch without trouble.
I just wished Unit 2 was in it a little more. But you can kind of even say that about Patlabor 2, and that's my favorite Patlabor feature.
