Comment on Minami-ke “4th” Season Announced by Sasazuka:

It’d be lovely if Studio Daume could return to the franchise, but it seems that most of their talent has fled elsewhere. Daume hasn’t really done anything notable since the two ICHIGO MASHIMARO OVA series or whatever that SHIKI thing is.

    Y’know, I understand why the second PATLABOR movie is the one that gets praised as an artistic triumph, but I prefer the first PATLABOR film because it’s actually somewhat “fun”. Although I easily prefer the 2nd OVA series to any of the movies (or the TV series or the first OVA series; as for more recent PATLABOR-related productions, I just haven’t seen them). Most of my list would be series-based films, with URUSEI YATSURA: BEAUTIFUL DREAMER being my top 20th century anime film, and THE …
