        Interesting idea, although personally, I'd like to see Patlabor
on TV in the Western World. Unless theres anything truly disturbing
later on in the series, it would seem ideal. With all the attention
being focused on certain other shows recently (Evangelion? Wassat, then?
^_-), Patlabor seems to have gotten a little overlooked...
