As the cries to “Destroy Evil” ring louder and louder in Janperson’s mind, a figure from his past arrives in Japan to aid him. What follows will reveal the long-awaited truth behind our hero’s mysterious origins!
I’m not gonna say too much about this episode because the first half of a two parter that’s loaded with spoilers, but it also shows a real shift in the series in quite a few ways. Jan-P really turns from brooding stoic robot to a more emotional android protagonist, and we get a new supporting cast to replace the cops and reporters from earlier in the show. The next five episodes set the stage for the rest of the show, and it’s a set that includes some of my favorite episodes in the series.
OBSTRUCTIVE CHAMPSTICE EDIT: One spoilerish thing that should be mentioned is that a character that appears in this episode and the next is played by Ryosuke Sakamoto, (aka Red One/Shirou Gou from Super Electron Bioman), who was recently diagnosed with esophageal cancer.
