At the turn of the twenty-first century, policing in Tokyo has taken a very unique approach: officers fight crime with cutting-edge mecha called Patlabors. Division 2 of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Special Vehicle Section 2 is one team entrusted with these powerful weapons, but its assembly of clumsy eccentrics could prove a challenge all of its own. Under the staunchly old-fashioned leadership of Chief Sakaki, there are, among others, deadpan Captain Goto, mecha-obsessed Noa Izumi, and straight-talking Asuma Shinohara. Follow them as they try to outwit mad terrorists one minute and survive dysfunctional team dynamics the next!
Both are slightly futuristic (Patlabor more so), and focuses about new and special branches of government: library military forces and police mecha task forces. There is lots of focus on characters, a good amount of humour and are very down to earth.
If you liked either one you should do yourself a favour and check the other one out.

Rail Wars and Toshokan Sensou (also known as Library War) are two very unusual action shows. They both have a type of "task force" that is dedicated to protecting and serving something important; rail ways and trains in Rail Wars, libraries and books in Toshokan Sensou. Rail Wars includes a good bit of ecchi while Toshokan Sensou has a romantic comedy thing going on, but if you liked the somewhat silly premise in one, you may want to check out the other.
