WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Special Rescue Exceedraft #06

Episode 06
Truck Drivin' Mama

A Middle Eastern terrorist group smuggles a nuclear warhead into Japan. When they hijack a truck driver and force her to drive it to Tokyo, their intention is disastrous. Can Exceedraft save this Truck Drivin’ Mama – as well as her son, and all of Tokyo – from nuclear obliteration?

This is a silly episode, but it has some really good stunts in it, plus you get a chance to see some oldschool "dekotora" trucks that used to be popular in Japan among the truck driving element but have become slightly less popular these days. This is one of Takashi Yamada's two episode this year, and it's a pretty good one. Yamada, if you remember, wrote one of the best episodes of Winspector, about Junko and her rival, and one of the best of Solbrain, about the stolen prototype suit. Then again, he also wrote the one about the genius kid who makes his own Gigastreamer and the one about the cross dressing comedian in Winspector, so your mileage may vary.

It's a great showcase for stunts and a good character piece for Blues, so hope you like it.

WEEABOO SHOGUN PRESENTS: Special Rescue Exceedraft #05

Weeaboo Shogun Presents
Special Rescue Exceedraft
Episode 05
All Alone in the Universe

You will never guess who wrote this episode. It certainly doesn't seem like their handiwork.

Time to get this out again.

Yes, that's right. Previously known for psychic girls and magic in science and police shows, Sagiyama actually writes one that is thematic, has kids, and has no magic. And it's actually an awesome an action packed episode, believe it or not. Somehow, this episode just works out properly. A really tense plot a good gimmick and reveal (though you can probably guess what Seagull is early) and a great resolution, this is one of the better episodes that Sagiyama has actually written. Maybe they told her she couldn't use psychic girls because Miyashita already did one last episode so she wrote this one. I would say this one more than makes up for the various witches, psychic girls, and talking stuffed animals she has done. Enjoy this really entertaining episode, albeit a filler episode unrelated to the Red Spade story arc.
