Patlabor: Kanuka Clancy’s NYPD Uniform

I thought I’d stick to the subjects for which reference material is harder to find, hence, this one.

As you can see, she wears at least two different uniforms over the course of the series and the movies.

NYPD Patlabor Shirts

Taking a little creative license with this one. These are inspired by the circa 1989-90 NYPD patrol cars. I couldn’t think of what Americans might call a labor (aside from ‘giant police robot’ or something), so I stuck with the Japanese name; it might plausibly be a loanword, though it’s actually an English loanword / portmanteau. It’s come full circle!

The text says: “Special Vehicles, Patlabor Squad, Officer Exchange Program.”

Patlabor: AV-98 Ingram “Promo” Shirts

I thought this might be amusing: mock promotional shirts for the Shinohara Heavy Industries AV-98 Ingram patrol labor. Note that the font is the same as the Patlabor title card, and at the same unusually severe angle. Available in white-on-black and black-on-white. I also threw in some blues, because that seems to be Shinohara’s corporate colors.


This shirt is fiction, but in ten years, who knows?

Samurai Pizza Cats: Restaurant Sign

This is a replica of the sign on the building in Little Tokyo. This is a plural version (CATS). Note that the model sheets show a possessive version (CAT’S), and at least one painted background shows a singular version (CAT).

Samurai Pizza Cats: The Big Cheese’s “Mon”

This mon-like icon appears on the shoulders of The Big Cheese’s kimono.


I have replicated it here:
