WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Special Rescue Police Winspector Episode #5

I had to get this one out. Buckle up for crazy, because occasionally this show goes off the deep end, and this is an example of it. Basically it's about  a giant bird attacking people, and for some reason, giant birds are Winspector's jurisdiction. Whenever you wonder about practical effects in tokusatsu, just remember that someone created this creepy ass puppet. THEY MADE A BABY BIRD TOO FOR ONE SCENE.

It's also not the last time they use it in the show, it gets re-used later in a different story with some modifications.

OH GOD WHY DID SOMEONE MAKE THIS

This episode is what made me decide to subtitle the show. The motion of the bird is just... fantastic. You'll see.

But considering that working with real birds is expensive, this sort of worked.

  2. This goofy looking bird looks just like the one they used in Dairanger with the bird cage Gorma. Can you confirm or deny those suspicions?!

    1. I have heard from others that the bird puppet is the same one from Dairanger. It's not like Toei to not use a prop multiple times.

    2. Toei being really cheap is just wonderful. Not as wonderful as the job you're doing subbing this though. Keep it up!

      Also, Bikel is my spirit animal.
