WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Special Rescue Police Winspector Episode #39

A legendary thief, sixty years old, comes out of retirement to score a priceless artifact... and is nearly murdered in the process. When the Winspector team investigates, they become involved in a sad tale of family dating back decades. Someone has designs on the sad old thief's life... and it's up to Winspector to find out who before they come to collect!

A bit of a different kind of episode, but good nonetheless, written by Junichi Miyashita and co-written by writer Shindo Yoshichika. There are some excellent car chases in this episode.

The line used by the young thief at the beginning is the same line used by Japanese Spider Man, so you get "An emissary from hell!" there as well.

The end scene with the gun is admittedly tense. I knew Winspector wouldn't have a guy shoot another man in cold blood like that, but admittedly when I watched the scene, I had no idea given that Ryoma had been grazed earlier. The cinematography of the two passing each other in the hallway of the Metropolitan Police Department is extremely well done.

Next week's episode is the beginning of an extremely action packed two-parter set in Japan's southern island of Shikoku.

  1. I like your translation of Winspector, but I torrent to my phone and transfer it to my computer. But the torrents are to slow to keep active due to space considerations. Hope you can fix this thanks.
