WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Super Rescue Solbrain #44

Episode 44: The Thief and the Old Doctor

When a thief encounters an old man during a break-in, the two forge an unlikely friendship. The old man turns out to be a scientist and gives the thief a special telekinetic headgear to make stealing easier. But when an organized crime group witnesses the power of the headgear, they decide to take it for their own -- and the old doctor with it! Now it's up to the thief... does he leave the old man to his fate, or does he risk arrest by notifying the authorities?

I really like this episode. Nobuo Ogizawa writes, and it's his signature style: a seemingly silly plot point being strongly about the human experience. This one is how people connect to one another in the strangest of ways.
