WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Special Rescue Police Winspector Episode #18

A young girl is being used by her father as a part of an experiment to harness psychic powers in human beings. But with no crime taking place, Winspector has no legal right to interfere. Who are her father's financial backers, and what are their intentions? When Nonoyama discovers that she has brain wave abnormalities, Ryoma races against time to try to save her... but does she even want to be saved?

First things first, this is a Sagiyama episode. As one of the main writers of Minky Momo, girls with powers and angst are her bread and butter. However, she does it so well. This is actually not a bad episode by any means. We don't get a Suit Up scene. Ryoma gets in the car and drives through an explosion already suited up. There's very little action in this episode, but what they have isn't too bad. This episode also has something very interesting: foreigners. Much like some of my friends who frequently show up in tokusatsu episodes, these guys are our predecessors. Anyone know who they are? Are any of you them? I'd love to hear about your experiences on the show if so.

This image is from one of the drawings in the episode, a neat feature of pre CGI shows. I love that someone actually drew that.

I hope you enjoy it. By the way, Ryota appears very infrequently from here on out.
