[Relations] Patlabor

Post by Trilandian » Sun Feb 11, 2007 11:40 am

Yesterday I made a comment concerning Patlabor 1990's preview, which I thought contained some inaccuracies. Today I found that Patlabor The Movie 1 was changed from its sequel relation to Patlabor OVA to a relation of side story. Now, I don't know if maybe I was misunderstood in my comment or if it has nothing to do with my comment, but I don't think that Movie 1 is a side story of the OVA, I think it's a sequel.
Now, seeing as how I was wrong about this sort of thing before, I wanted to make sure that it is the case before making further comments in the aniDB home site.
So, is Movie 1 a sequel or a side story to the OVA? What's your say in the matter?

Huh, unreal! I could've sworn I saw Patlabor The Movie having a sequel relation to the OAV! Anyway, I'll trust what you're saying, my mistake, I guess.
I do, however, still think that the 1st movie is a sequel to the OAV, since it introduces many new things that weren't even mentioned in the OAV: things like the HOS and AV "Zero", not to mention the full deployment of the paratrooper labors that were still in developement in the OAV. Furthermore, if you go to anime news network at the following link:

You'll see (right below the title) that it's listed as a sequel to the OVA, rather than as a side story.
