Unlike following past iterations of the Patlabor series by heavily focusing on political themes, the movie is heavily focused on domestic and international issues that the Japanese government faced during the 20th century. The film focuses on the post-occupation status of Japan, during which the country had economically, politically and technologically progressed under prosperous years without being involved in another war after the nation surrendered and was occupied by the Allied Forces after the end of World War II.
