Plot concept: SYNOPSIS: Every cop has a story to tell, but not all of them are safe to show on television. That’s especially true in the crazed world of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police’s Special Vehicle Section, because when you toss giant robots into the mix almost anything can happen. A teddy bear holding people hostage and a search for albino alligators may just be typical days on the job, but what about an undercover mission into a public bathhouse looking for suspicious moles? Or what happens when the only place where you and your coworker can wait out a typhoon is a room in one of Japan’s notorious “Love Hotels”? And then there’s that drunken weekend at the hot springs and the infamous “underwear incident.” But not every story has a humorous edge, and what begins as a battle for corporate survival turns into a mêlée in the streets as the makers of the deadly Griffin return for the ultimate exercise in urban combat! It’s the wildest set of adventures yet as Noa Izumi and the men and women of the SV2 reveal the stories that couldn’t be told before in MOBILE POLICE PATLABOR – THE NEW FILES!
