Patlabor: The Mobile Police
At the dawn of the millennium in Tokyo, advanced robotic vehicles called Labors are heavily relied upon to build fortifications to protect Japan from global rising sea levels. A maverick team from the Metropolitan Police led by Noa Izumi and Azuma Shinohara uncover a devilish scheme to infect Tokyo's 8,000 Labors with the BABEL virus.

As a powerful typhoon approaches Tokyo and the apocalyptic vision of a dead man begins, the team must locate and destroy the source of the virus, the giant Babylon Project Tower in the heart of Tokyo Bay, before 8,000 Labors go berserk!
The year is 1999 and Tokyo's Mobile Police have a new weapon in the war on crime—advanced robots called Labors are used to combat criminals who would use the new technology for illegal means. The suicide of a mysterious man on the massive Babylon Project construction site sets off a cascade of events that may signal the destruction of Tokyo.
Throughout Tokyo, a frightening number of construction Labors have begun to suddenly go berserk and violently malfunction. The growing chaos of Tokyo is overshadowed by the looming edifice of the Babylon Project, the lynchpin of Japan's plan to reclaim the land under Tokyo Bay. To make matters worse, its lead architect recently committed suicide by throwing himself off of it into the waves below. How will the Metropolitan Police's Division 2 investigate the malfunctions in the midst of world-wide destruction, when the reliability of their own Labors lies in doubt?
