Junichi Miyashita, future head writer of Exceedraft, writes this one. To be completely honest with you, I forgot about this episode. It's a heartfelt piece about a hitman with a heart of gold, but it's ultimately very forgettable. Ryoma acts as a deus ex machina, stepping in to save the day literally and figuratively, and he also acts as an info dump. I don't like that. I think he deserves more.
There is ONE unfortunate scene in this episode that I DID remember. Blackface, Toei? Really? There wasn't ONE black person you could ask to be in your show? On a different subject though, the Rodney King police brutality beating had just occurred in the news, so this was a particularly timely scene -- it was big news even in Japan.
I'm obligated to let people know that the preview for episode 38 shown in this episode and episode 38 itself contain Nazi imagery. I know that's illegal in some countries and some people just don't like it. It is a pretty good episode though, if a bit out of theme for Solbrain.
