When it comes to archetypes of situational daily working-life anime, You’re Under Arrestand Mobile Police Patlabor definitely top the list.

Sporting relatively understated action, tame antics without over-the-top slapstick, and rather episodic storylines, YUA! and Patlabor are the titles you move on to when you want working life themes given a more down-to-earth treatment. Here, wisdom and courage save the day, and teamwork is always part of the job. The plot is largely character-driven and never feels like it's simply going through a sequence of story checkpoints.

If you’ve seen (and liked) one title, there is little reason not to watch the others as well.
