Patlabor the Fanzine

My buddy Matt Schley brings to my attention a fantastic zine (3rd issue) that he’s produced with a group of people — under the Colony Drop monicker — that is dedicated to one of those classic anime series you should watch if you haven’t (or as they describe it, “the one giant robot show that’s most likely to bore the shit out of your friends if you force them to watch it”), Mobile Police Patlabor — probably most famous for its Mamoru Oshii-directed films. I’ve had a look inside, and it’s beautifully produced, with plenty of engaging essays to make you want to spend even more time with the series. Patlabor the Fanzine is only available in print, and can be ordered online through MagCloud.
