WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Super Rescue Solbrain #48

A boy's father shows up after being at work for over six months without returning home. But late that night, the father undergoes a terrifying transformation. Something bizarre and dark is transpiring at Holiday Industries, and Solbrain has to get to the bottom of it before it's too late.


Last Sagiyama episode for this series, and it's a bit of a stinker, to be honest. There's no Ryoma, the plot doesn't make much sense -- why would an electromagnetic beam cause people to mutate -- and numerous other things I could nitpick. That kid sure does love to fish, doesn't he? Dad, you just mutated into a horrifying monster, let's go fishing! Some good makeup effects and a creepy atmosphere though. With a little refining this could have been a really good episode. I think if the episode had more time to build up and more time to end it would have been a lot better. But unfortunately, this episode reminds me a bit of the werewolf episode with Mr. James Bond from early in the series. Also, what's up with Daiki almost running over kids? How many times has he nearly done it in this show? Not counting the one time he did it in a nightmare.

There's a couple of mediocre episodes before we get to the end. Next one is quite possible the dumbest one in the entire series. Sorry, folks.
