WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Super Rescue Solbrain #29

Jun meets an elementary school boy with a shocking understanding of technology and computers and gives him a tour of Solbrain. But this young man has his sights set on one thing: reverse engineering the GigaStreamer and using its fearsome power to overthrow grown ups and become the ruler of Japan! Can Solbrain stop this young terror without harming him?


Someone asked me earlier if Solbrain had any episodes that matched the shocking scenes in the episode with the boy with the bomb in Winspector. I had forgotten a scene at the end of this one. This episode by Takashi Yamada has a handful of shocking moments, including one where Daiki is firing (though intending to miss) at a vehicle carrying a child. In his defense, he's returning fire and never aims at the car. The mini GigaStreamer that appears in this episode is, amusingly, the actual toy used as a prop.
Well, I didn't vote for you.
Another scene I thought was interesting in this episode was how SolDozer greets Akira, and is completely ignored. Perhaps mirroring childrens' responses to SolDozer? I don't know.

Lastly, the name Akira is almost certainly chosen in reference to the original psychic experimental child from the legendary Akira manga series and anime film.
