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?

Notes:
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.

  1. Can you please, amplify the subtitle size? I'ts very small, and makes reading difficult for people with vision problems. Thank u.

  2. Unless I'm not mistaken, this is the same style they've used for much of their work. But then again, I'm not font/size expert.
