WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Special Rescue Police Winspector Episode #33

Years ago, Commander Masaki arrested a Yakuza enforcer and set him on the path to redemption. Amazed at Masaki's kindness, he vowed to himself to change his life: he underwent a cryogenic experiment, intent on awakening in one hundred years. But after only nine years, his cryo tube fails, leaving him in 1999 while the repairs are made. As he visits his old family and friends, he becomes increasingly aware that the world has changed. But this man, a modern day Rip Van Winkle, may hold the key to solving one of Winspector's cases!

Urashima Taro is a Japanese fairytale, somewhat similar to Rip Van Winkle in style, about a man trapped out of his time.

This is a strange episode, but it's a really well written one. I had to do some localization because Furusawa speaks a lot of Yakuza gangster slang, and it doesn't make a lot of sense taken literally. I hope it makes sense in English.

A yakuza loan shark who's younger than Furusawa calling him the rather condescending "anta" became this.
There's a scene where Ryoma Suits Up, narrowly avoiding being sprayed by the metal solvent... then immediately gets out and gets sprayed. Nice work, Fire!

If you like Bikel and Walter, next week is almost exclusively about them! Happy New Year!
