WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Special Rescue Police Winspector Episode #29

Something mysterious is happening on Mount Tsurugi. A series of attacks, all leading to mysterious puncture wounds on the neck and hospitalization of the victims while they rant and rave deliriously. Even more mysterious are the rumors of the evil hag that haunts the mountain. Ryoma's team investigates... but when Ryota and Inspector Rokkaku fall victim, the investigation becomes personal. Who -- or what -- is behind the secret of the Yokai of Mount Tsurugi?

Notes: Celebrate your Turkey Day by watching this stinking turkey of an episode. I once had a drunken conversation with Tom Constantine where I told him how this episode was literally a Scooby Doo episode with a Wizard of Oz reveal, and it makes no sense.

Oh, and that hideous bird puppet is back, albeit with some modifications.

Okay, so he built a robot of a horribly mutated human face bat so that he could mourn the loss of a mutated human faced bat? And what was with the marks on the neck? Where did he make hallucinogenic drugs? And WHY COULD A ROBOT BY HYPNOTIZED? WHAT EVEN IS GOING ON HERE.

What the hell is going on here.
My favorite line of the episode: when Bikel delivers his "Makassecho!" line in a monotone. I got to subtitle it as "Hey. Forget about it."

Oh, we will.

That and, "There was no place in this world for human faced bats or monstrous birds."

And he would have gotten away with it if it weren't for that meddling cop and his support robots!

Susumu Takaku usually wrote creepy stuff. This time, in my opinion, it was a bizarre mess. Happy Thanksgiving to those of you who are celebrating it, though!


  1. I would like to ask you whether you are going to sub Solbrain and Exceedraft after Winspector? These three are very good shows. Thank you.
