WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Super Rescue Solbrain #11

A threat on Commander Masaki's life is sent to Solbrain HQ. Three deadly hitmen are dispatched by the son of a man who Masaki ruined in an investigation years ago. A deadly clash between Solbrain and the Rose Mafia crime syndicate begins, and caught at the center of it is Reiko. A violent clash is about to erupt in one of Solbrain's most action packed episodes!

This is one of my favorite episodes of the series. It's also one of the most violent and serious. Interestingly, it's also one of the rare episodes that focuses on Reiko. Every team member gets an opportunity to do something, and there's some of the best and most detailed action sequences that they ever shot for Solbrain with a lot of hand to hand combat and gunplay. 

Masaki proves that he's a deadeye, like the end sequence indicates.
This episode was written by Takahiko Masuda, who also wrote for Captain Tsubasa J, Jetman, and the Cyborg 009 anime from the early 2000s. He only wrote a handful of episodes for Solbrain, but each one of them is surprisingly entertaining. The out of suit hand to hand combat sequences and gunfights in this episode are truly excellent, and the episode actually manages to make Reiko feel very relevant in a way other than just the team's medic. Her hand to hand combat is fantastic. Highly recommended.

  1. You are a hero! You are the first one ever who makes the Metal-Heroes-series available for the non-Japanese-speaking world. Wow, I searched for Winspector since the 90s and never imagined that I finally also would be able to see what is coming AFTER Winspector. I appreciate your work, you kick ass!
