PATLABOR T.V. is FANTASTIC, easily among the very best, IMHO.

the characters are written like REAL PEOPLE, lending a singular veracity that is exceptionally uncommon in Anime,
indeed, rather uncommon in any storytelling medium, really...

Glad you found one you are really enjoying.

That is actually part of the reason I like Cowboy Bebop so much. The characters are like real people, with real flaws. Not idealistic heroes and the like.

I should have watched the Japanese but they seem to be annoying but at least Nadia got sick saved by nemo so it will be getting different if I remember correctly.

I can’t even imagine how annoying an English language Nadia would be. Even in the Japanese the viewer sometimes wishes she’d fall off the damned boat and never come back.

I think the greatest harm the island episodes do is make you hate the main character.

there are island episode like the one i just where the Garfish was on the other side and they were resting at Nemo's Island. then she and marie get sick. hopefully I wasn't delusional when I first watched THE Islands episodes which I probably will get too soon. the only thing annoyes me so far is Captain Nemo can't tell Nadia she is his daughter and shacks up with Electra (or was it the movie when she's pregent?)

When you’re on the island you’ll know. There will be no Nemo, no Nautilus, nothing cool at all. At one point they run into some Gargoyle stuff I think but mostly it’s just Nadia being a horrible teenage brat of the absolute worst kind while Jean just takes it. The animation was done in Korea for this part and yeah, you can tell. Then the main cast comes back the show ends in a really awesome way, then it’s over. By the end the title character is nearly irrelevant, sorta standing on the sidelines watching stuff go down.

My theory is that the end was made in Japan while the cheap-ass, almost action-free island episodes were being churned out by foreigners who were probably used to working on Ninja Turtles. This was probably the only way to have any good animation at all as this was already a total money loser for everyone at Gainax.

I’ve always wondered why the PC Engine game is also set on the island...it’s not much fun either.

Finally got around to watching the JP LDs of Genocyber that I got a few years ago. Never saw this back in the day, but probably wouldn't have appreciated it much if I had.

Liked this a bit more than I was expecting, the animation wasn't outstanding but was pretty good. The various stories were kinda depressing and I'm not a fan of gore, but only the 1st two episodes really had anything that was over the top. Thankfully no violence against animals, which I really hate (and yet I own anime like Lily C.A.T....).
The story in the 4th/5th episodes pretty much seems like it was written for different anime or something. Almost feels like a Final Fantasy VII anime, although still somewhat depressing.

The PQ of the LDs was great, too. Almost perfect film cadence when watched through my Sony Blu-ray recorder, and no ghosting or other crap that I often see on anime OVA LDs from the 80's or early 90's.

The 5th disc also includes a B&W insert with some pictures and interview with the beautiful Akiko Hiramatsu, who has been one of my favorite seiyuu since the 90's. She didn't have many lines though, despite being the main character.
