Patlabor – Roppongi Hills

Posted in Places by tokyobling on November 1, 2014

If you are into the manga, anime and now proper movie, Patlabor, you should most definitely head over to Roppongi Hills as soon as possible to check out the scale 1:1 Mobile Police mecha suit they have on show right now. I walked past it yesterday and took these photos. It is really quite cool. I was a big fan of this manga many years ago, when it was still set in the future. These days a manga set in 1998-2002 does not feel quite as SF.

The movie this prop is promoting has an official site here, and it looks pretty cool. The reason it is in Roppongi is most likely due to the Tokyo Movie Festival taking place last week.

    Patlabor is still sitting on my “too be watched” shelf. Maybe I’ll cue it up next…

      It is a good one, one of my faves and I am not even into anime very much! (^-^)

        Watching Patlabor now along with another ‘classic’ anime, Yawara!

    I passed by Roppongi Hills yesterday so stopped to have a look at this but couldn’t find it 😦

      Ah…. I must have been on the last day then! Which makes sense, as the Tokyo Movie Festival was also just finishing up that day. Sorry you missed it! But there will be more chances. I have missed it so many times already….
