WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Super Rescue Solbrain #08

The prototype suit used to design the SolBraver Solid Suit is hijacked and stolen by an unknown assailant. Shortly after, acts of mayhem, including an attempt on Commander Masaki's life occur. Who stole the Solid Suit? And what is their ultimate objective? You won't believe the conclusion of this outstanding episode of Super Rescue Solbrain!

Notes: This is an outstanding early episode. It really hits the right places emotionally. We see why Solbrain does what they do, we get a real feeling for the types of people they are, and we see a side of Commander Masaki that rarely comes out. This is a Takashi Yamada episode, who wrote some of the finest episodes of Winspector, as well as two of my 90s favorites, Genji Tsuushin Agedama and Yume no Crayon Oukoku (also Robotack, though some consider that to be not a distinction). The less I say about the plot, the more amazing it'll be when you see it played out on screen.

Sasamoto in this episode is portrayed by none other than Junichi Haruta, who many fans will recognize as Super Sentai series heroes Goggle Black and DynaBlack, and many Brazilian fans will certainly recognize him as Mad Gallant from the very popular series, Juspion. He's also made an appearance recently in Kyoryuger as KyoryuGreen, Souji's swordsman father.

Braver vs. Braver!
