I think there's a good chance that Patlabor will make it to TV on CN or
Sci-Fi. The only complaints I heard about Gundam Wing(Which had a fair
amount of Gunplay and the word 'gun' in the title)'s violence was by that
over-the-top religious site I posted a couple of months back.
  I figure if CN could get away with minamal edits for Gundam Wing, Tenchi
and DBZ(The latest season has minor edits, even though the dubbing and music
is still horrible) then they could probably show Patlabor. Not that I've
seen that much of it, but I know it's fairly nonviolent. They might have a
slight problem playing the movies though, due to the first's religious
subtext.
