Patlabor EZY Anime Project Launches Website, Social Media Accounts

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

The staff of the Patlabor EZY anime series opened a new website, Twitter, and Instagram account on Friday.

The Japan Anniversary Association officially recognized August 10 as Patlabor Day.

GENCO representative director Taro Maki (Patlabor the Mobile Police, Nodame Cantabile, Millennium Actress) previously confirmed that he is producing the Patlabor EZY anime series.

The Patlabor franchise's original concept of police officers piloting robotic mecha (patrol labors or "Patlabors") was developed by HEADGEAR, a group consisting of director Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell, Sky Crawlers), script writer Kazunori Itō (.hack, Dirty Pair), mecha designer Yutaka Izubuchi (Eureka Seven, Mobile Suit Gundam franchise), character designer Akemi Takada (Kimagure Orange Road, Urusei Yatsura, Fancy Lala), and manga creator Masami Yuuki (Birdy the Mighty). The franchise spawned two original video anime, a television anime series, and three anime films. The last anime film, Patlabor WXIII, was released in theaters in Japan in 2002.
