TV Episode 1: Ingram Activated
Copyright: © Copyright 1990 Headgear/Emotion/TFC/NTV; re-released in the US by Central Park Media Corporation © 1998
The series begins with an intro to Special Vehicles Division 2 (SV-2) of the Mobile Police Patrol Labor force (Patlabor). With creaky, out of date machinery and an extremely violent labor pilot, Isao Ota, the SV-2 seems to bear the brunt of all police department jokes. It isn't until the division's Captain Gotoh informs his team they are the inheritors of the newest labor developed by Shinohara Heavy Industries, the AV-98 Ingram, that the team's morale is lifted.
New labors means new pilots and that's where our loveable heroine, Izumino Akira (Noa for short), comes in. She arrives to take a labor competency test at Shinohara Heavy Industries' main factory only to find that someone has stolen one of the coveted AV-98 Ingrams! Can Noa single-handedly retrieve the labor? Of course! She's the heroine, and a pretty darn good cop.
