WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Super Rescue Solbrain #39

Episode 39: The Dreamweaving Alien

A hopeless magician gets his hands on a wondrous piece of technology stolen from a black market gang: a device that projects a collective hallucination to people within range. While evading the gang, he uses the device to befriend a boy who believes in aliens. But there's something he doesn't know: prolonged usage of the device leads to brain damage. Can Solbrain save him -- and the boy -- before it's too late?


Notes:


Sagiyama strikes again! But I actually really like this episode -- it's hard not to. The premise may sound dumb as hell but the writing in this episode is so good. I actually really got a kick out of the story -- and it has a science element, which is what she sometimes is missing, and a great departure from Ghost Nazis in episode 38. The risk that Mizuno puts himself in for this kid is immense. Highly recommended.
