WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Super Rescue Solbrain #43

While stopping a bank robbery, Reiko pursues a female suspect who shoots a child during her getaway. Shortly after, the woman reappears with a completely different personality -- a perfect angel who helps the elderly and cares for orphans. An act? A twin? Or something much darker? The shocking truth will haunt Solbrain forever in what may be the darkest and most twisted episode of the series.

I stopped working on this show for a few days after seeing this episode because I found it so twisted. It's an amazing episode, maybe my favorite of the series. Ryuichi Takaoka's scheme here is perhaps one of the most horrific I can imagine, particularly how he goes about it. He not only does what he does -- he TELLS the person that it's been done. You will notice that there is very little power suit action in this episode. Also note that they mention that she had no priors, and later they call her a murderer. That means the child that she shot died.

By the way, the actress that plays Ritsuko Harashima is Ami Kawai, the same actress that plays Lami from Zyuranger, also known as Scorpina from the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.

If you watch one episode out of this whole series, I recommend you watch this one.

  1. I watched the episode, when she is called a murderer, I don't think they were talking about the child (shot on the shoulder), but the policeman during the robbery.
