WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Special Rescue Police Winspector Episode #26

"The Star Crossed Girl's Journey"

A young girl's father is murdered, and she claims that a philanthropist business owner is the culprit. Interpol turns up a link between him and a drug cartel based out of Hong Kong. But without any evidence to support the accusation, Winspector can't touch him, and there will be no justice for the murdered father. It's up to Hisako to infiltrate the organization and get the proof... before the girl can take matters into her own hands and kills the philanthropist herself!

You're not Keanu!

This is the first episode I think that we have a full on actual murder in the episode, but not the last. It's dark, and it gets darker as the murder victim's daughter seemingly plans to commit murder to settle the score. We end up with a very good episode with snappy writing and a great gimmick.

I'm not saying that 1994's "Speed" borrowed this plot straight from Winspector, but here's the interesting roundabout: Speed took its plot from a 1985 film called Runaway Train which was based on a screenplay written by Akira Kurosawa. This script was written by Takashi Yamada, who also contributed scripts for Zillion, Kamen Rider Black, DoReMi (of all things), and the incredibly catchy themed Agedama

I hope you enjoy this week's episode, because consider this fair warning: next week's episode is fucking goofy as hell. Witches in Winspector, honestly.
