WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Special Rescue Police Winspector Episode #31

Bikel and Walter have a third brother: Brian, a peacekeeping robot commissioned by the FBI. But when Brian returns for yearly maintenance, Dr. Asahina, creator of the Winspector Support Droids discovers that he has been heavily upgraded with high performance weapons and near invulnerable armor. But in their attempts to create the ultimate law enforcement robot, the upgrades by the Americans also expose Brian's greatest flaw. Now it's a race against time to stop Brian... but nothing Winspector has can even scratch him. Only a new, untested prototype weapon stands a chance... but will it be ready in time? And can Ryoma even use such a dangerous device?

"Gigastreamer! Maxim Mode!"
Notes:
This episode is an Upgrade Episode, and it is fantastically done. This episode, of course, came out after Robocop, so there's a bit of a reference, and a bit of social commentary on the American police style as opposed to the Japanese style.



DEAD OR ALIVE... OR DEAD. YOU'RE COMING WITH ME.
Brian's helmet appears to be a combination of a Flashman and a Spielban helmet, repainted.

There's some allusion to Frankenstein in this episode, and Hirosaki's mental illness is actually very convincingly portrayed as a father who saw something terrible happen and just lost it. So many good cinematography choices and use of camera angles: watch the fights with Brian, it'll impress you for a film camera show.


This is chilling.
Also... this is just the first part of a two-parter.

Winspector predicted an American police state.
I also double-subtitled Brian's Engrish in the beginning. I have what he says, and then what the subtitles are trying to say. Enjoy, this episode rocks.

  1. Actually, Brian's helmet is modified from Mad Gallant from Juspion.
