Yeah its quite different than the first movie and the first time I saw it I didn't quite like it, but re watching it, it really grew on me. I'll agree that it's dry, but it's also directed in a way that I really like it. I love the jet scene for example and really like that no actual action happens.Patlabor 2 is a fucking sit though, holy shit. Especially when you think you're in for some grounded mech action, which the trailer totally made it seem like. Oshii is good, but he's also dryer and harder to like than a bucket of kitty litter (when he's not doing Urusei Yatsura).
