WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Super Rescue Solbrain #50

A woman collapses while jogging and dies overnight, her body completely mummified. Solbrain investigates and discovers that she was bitten by a dog. Somehow, a war in the Middle East in which insurgents have obtained biological weapons has come to Japan. It's a race against time to find an experimental animal and obtain the antibodies before Japan falls victim to a biological plague.



Notes:
I'm not totally sure, but I suspect this is the same trained German Shepherd they used for Aleck, Masaki's dog in Winspector, and before that in Shaider. The story here is actually pretty slick. Writing is good, and the stakes are very high. With a Middle Eastern rebel attempting to take over his country by overthrowing the Republic of Lazania (great name, by the way, sounds delicious), this is one of those "ripped from the pages of the newspaper" storylines, as the Gulf War and Saddam Hussein's biological weapons was a concern at this time.

There's a scene where a dog gets killed. Aren't they not supposed to show stuff like that? It happens, and it's a nice introduction to immunology for kids who watch and are traumatized by it.

Another filmwriter, Mayumi Ishiyama, writes this one.

The next three episodes are the three part finale of Super Rescue Solbrain. Hope you're looking forward to it!
