WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Super Rescue Solbrain #05

"The Courage that the Monster Gave Me"

A strange homeless man who calls himself James Bond is being pursued by mysterious agents. At the same time, rumors of a wolf or even a wolfman are turning up all over Tokyo. Could this Mr. Bond and the wolfman be connected? Solbrain tackles its most bizarre case yet!

Sorry about the delay this week. Was out of town.

A solid investigation episode with unfortunately silly special effects, but a good story overall. Jun continues to be one of the most fun characters. The villainess in this episode is played by none other than Mayumi Yoshida, aka Lou, Pink Flash from Supernova Flashman!

Given the wolfman theme, it's interesting and certainly no coincidence that the family name of the proprietor of the company that creates wolfmen is Kujo, a nod to Stephen King's Cujo, about a rabid killer dog.
