Meet Angel, a hard working robot with a heart of gold. But behind his gentle mannerisms lies a dark secret that only Tatewaki knows. Can
Janperson stop Angel from going down a devilish path?! This one’s not only a good story on its own, it also leads into some major story content that I won’t spoil here, but wish to address for those willing to brave some spoilers (see the TL Note readmore below).
Also worth noting is that Angel is voiced by Yūji Ueda. This was one of Ueda’s earliest roles, and yet it was also his only tokusatsu role to date. He would later go on to voice quite a few icons of 90’s anime, including Akito Tenkawa from Nadesico, Takeshi (Brock) from Pokémon, and Sagara Sanosuke in Rurouni Kenshin.
TL NOTE (SPOILERS FOR THIS EPISODE BELOW)
This episode starts an ongoing story arc in which Janperson is plagued with a voice inside his head which seems to be linked to his past. We had trouble really deciding on how to portray this voice in this episode due to the way in which it refers to itself as “I” (“ore”) during Janperson’s confrontation with it. It’s implied to be a separate personality, but soon you will see the truth behind it. For now we have decided to go with “we” to suffice in the situation, but it’s definitely a bit on the confusing side in coming episodes.
