    Special Police Winspector takes place in modern day Japan during a time when crime and terrorism are on the rise.

    And we're open for business! I'll probably get started a little later today. School starts back up for me this month, so I might not be able to write about every episode but I'll make an effort to.

    There a bunch of one episode days this month, so it shouldn't be too incredibly difficult. I was ten episodes behind on Kakuranger at one point and caught up, but I also went on a binge of eight episodes in one day.

    That's a reason why i'm not sure if i'll take part this month, it will take me forever to catch up, if i even manage to....

    I'll see if I can stick it out this month... not least because, omg, Hiroshi Miyauchi is in this show! I never had any idea.

    This show has a lot of the things going for it that B-Fighter did. It's really energetic and not afraid of being strange, which lets it be original in some interesting little ways. The emphasis on master criminals manipulating impersonal but dangerous threats is a fairly interesting format decision.

    It's also nice to see a rescue show that, thus far, is really non-stop rescuing. Neither episode really has a fight scene to speak of, though there are definite action scenes. I look forward to seeing how the series develops.

    Haha, figured you would have known about that. Yeah, he's basically the mentor in the first two shows.

    I've always been interested in seeing a how show could effectively pull off the idea of having heroes with no grand force to fight against. I know Tomica tried it and while I enjoy those shows, they really do seem to fall apart when it comes to those concepts of only being rescue workers.

    The first two episodes definitely show some of that trademark Metal Hero oddness that's so fun to watch, Walter and Bycle can easily lead to a lot of interesting scenarios that could be good for a laugh. I'm really enjoying Ryouma as a lead as far as the first two episodes are concerned, he's not too stiff but has a great dedication to his job.

    Well, for a premiere episode that lacked a true fight, Winspector starts off pretty well. I do like the lack of the Fireball Rookie trope that Toku is prone to. I note a lack of a Villian group, at the outset at least.

    Also, that truck must have been made of cast iron, it barreled through how knows how man cars and at least one buliding without so much as a scratch.

    And i think i know where Kiss Players came from.....

    The second episode follows close on the heels of the first, with no real villains showing themselves. It's wan't bad, but saw the return of the Westpoint Ballcap and the Macbeth jacket.

    Winspector happens to be my all time favorite show so I can honestly tell you guys, things pick up a good pace around the episode 13.

    I'm not sure if you guys will agree with me on this but I think the very first episodes, writers were still trying to find a formula for the Rescue Heroes. So stories vary a lot in style and quality. While I think the first episode had a lot more action than any other episode did...

    The second episode was mostly centered on the relationship between Ryouma and his sister, Yuuko. However she hardly appears in the rest of the show, apart from the episode 13 I just mentioned. And a few other episodes. They had a good chemistry, I think it is a shame her character was pretty much erased from the show.

    This episode also introduces more of Hisako and her brother, Ryouta's backgrounds. Their relationship was much more explored during the show. Later on, we will find out why she knows Chief Masaki and works with him.

    As far as fight scenes go, wait a few more episodes. The main actor on the show, Masaru Yamashita was a stunt man. He does some KICK ASS fighting scenes that became his trademark on the show.

    If you guys have any questions about the plot, let me know. I saw the show both dubbed in my native language and RAW as well.

    Ah...the Rescue Mission Series...the one I wanted Saban to adapt but instead...pulled a Robotech with 3 Unrelated 80s Heroes and pulled a 60s Batman with B-Fighter.

    MAYDAY! MAYDAY!
