In the future, rapidly advancing technology gives birth to giant robots known as "Labors," so named for their usefulness in heavy industry. However, this also gives rise to "Labor crimes," resulting the the need for a new branch of law enforcement equiped with and dedicated to the policing of Labors. When Izumi Noa, a female police officer, becomes the newest recruit of Special Vechicals Devision 2, she and her top of the line "Patrol Labor" (or "Patlabor") Alphonse are swept into a series of adventures featuring crazed construction workers, eco-terrorists, and sea monsters.
At the turn of the twenty-first century, policing in Tokyo has taken a very unique approach: officers fight crime with cutting-edge mecha called Patlabors. Division 2 of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Special Vehicle Section 2 is one team entrusted with these powerful weapons, but its assembly of clumsy eccentrics could prove a challenge all of its own. Under the staunchly old-fashioned leadership of Chief Sakaki, there are, among others, deadpan Captain Goto, mecha-obsessed Noa Izumi, and straight-talking Asuma Shinohara. Follow them as they try to outwit mad terrorists one minute and survive dysfunctional team dynamics the next!
