What I love about Patlabor is that not only are its robots believable (not realistic, that's a different thing), they're also *mundane*. I mean, it's a beat cop anime with robots, which is a cool idea by itself, but you also see robots being used for boring jobs like constructions, and you even get to see them being transported on trucks like all work machines. I love that.
At the same time, I'll have to admit that it was the movies that really won me over. They're Mamoru Oshii movies first and mecha movies second. (I mean, I was nerding out over the fighter jets for most of the movie, not the robots...) You know how it is with his movies.
