WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Super Rescue Solbrain #31

When old friends of Daiki develop a self-driving car, the Solbrain team is called over to have a look. Dozer discovers that his computer and the car's are attuned, allowing them to talk to each other without others hearing. But when thieves break in to steal the car, it reveals another trait: a thirst for revenge.

Notes: Nobuo Ogizawa wrote this episode, and it is one of my favorites in the series. An initially cute premise is suddenly turned into a terrifying and violent revenge story. Dozer is the focus for a change, but everyone on the team gets to do something cool. Check out Jun's hand to hand combat at the end. The end scene had me choked up for the reason that the song that Dozer is singing is a historical children's song with a melancholy meaning: it's about a father lamenting his dead child and pondering the fleetingness of life. Sad robots get me every time.
