Goggle V, Episode 29

Before we begin, eagle-eyed viewers will see that I changed the title of the episode. Terror of the Sleeping Quarter just didn’t sound right. I ran it through the translator and came up with the above title. I’m getting the titles from the Goggle V wiki, so, you know. I’ll fix these as I go back and do second versions.

Deathdark is having an off week and thus enlists the services of the African tsetse fly, here known as Hae Mozu, to put the citizens of Asakyama to sleep. From there they plan on mass producing Hae Mozu’s sleep gas and knock Tokyo out as well. You do kinda feel sorry for these Mozu’s sometimes. They’re created to test out something, then Deathdark decides to go and mass produce their secret weapon for use against Tokyo. Defeats the purpose of the Mozu, if you ask me. Not to mention, when they’re defeated, where does Goggle V dispose of the body?

episode29(1)

So that’s what happened to Suika Mozu!

Kuroda saves a boy and his brother from Deathdark after the latter stumble upon their secret hideout, which looks suspiciously like the house from episode 19, but in the process he loses his Goggle Bracelet, rendering him powerless. Undeterred, he proceeds to kick ass.

episode29(2)

He still forgot the bubble gum.

Eventually the team shows up, returns Kuroda’s bracelet and the serious ass-kicking starts. Naturally, the Kong shows up at the end, but the team proves prepared for anything.

episode29(3)

And you through the flies in South Texas were big!

Episode 30 looks like it’s going to be a really good one.

episode29(4)

Don’t ask.

Goggle V, Episode 28

Meet Same Mozu, the shark monster. He’s been created for one purpose – to cry for the Mozus that came before him. That’s it. That’s his sole purpose.

Deathdark’s latest plan involves showing a bit of propaganda to Same Mozu, forcing him to cry. However, his tears are bombs. At the same time, this crying will lead Deathdark to a place to revive the 27 Mozus that came before, though why they don’t just run their genes through the Super Proliferator is anyone’s guess.

In the midst of this is Kazuo and his older sister, two kids who live by the sea. After a group of teens destroy their house boat, they encounter Same Mozu who appeals to their environmental side and convinces them he’s one of the good guys and just wants to pray for his dead friends. This, of course, is a trap as the dead Mozus demand a sacrifice in order to come back from the afterlife.

episode28(1)

No, but you should try this weed, man, it’s awesome!

You kind of feel bad for the Mozu in this episode. His sole purpose in life was to cry for his fallen brethren. In the end, he gets to join them.

episode28(2)

The ghost of Same Mozu lives on!

Goggle V, Episode 27

After a pretty good Mozu in the previous episode, Deathdark goes backwards again and decides to use a plant monster, namely Suika Mozu, the watermelon monster. That’s right, watermelon, that sweet juicy fruit that you get overcharged for right before summer starts, then pay ridiculously low prices for right in the middle of summer. And don’t get me started on what they charge you if it’s already sliced and packaged for you.

I mean, you want your monster to be something that instills fear in people, right? I just don’t see how a watermelon can do that, despite people’s reactions upon first seeing Suika Mozu. Personally, I’d just grab the kitchen knife and start slicing him up and eating him.

So yeah, a watermelon monster. That shoots seeds that turn people into plants. Not watermelons, mind you, but an assortment of plants, mostly coconut palms. Three of Tatsuya’s classmates are the first victims of Suika Mozu.

episode27(1)

Those aren’t seeds!

Sucked into the middle of all this is Tatsuya’s teacher, Miss Hiroko. She’s immediately blamed for the children’s disappearance. Tatsuya comes to her defense and offers a strong alibi — she was busy teaching art to the rest of the class. The parents, however, still don’t buy it and so Miss Hiroko quits her job. Akama is not happy with this and figures it has to be a Deathdark plan (because, when isn’t it?). The team opens their own investigation and catches Suika in the act. However, they quickly deduce that the only way to turn people back to normal is to take out Suika and thus set a plan in motion to draw him out. Deathdark hears about this and sends Mazurka to sneak Suika into the local hospital.

episode27(2)

If you don’t hurry, well, he looks do delicious that I might eat him!

The plot works, naturally, and the team defeats Suika and children all over Japan are scared of watermelon for the next twenty years.

Goggle V, Episode 26

The second half starts with a bang!

Deathdark has enlisted the aid of Pumbaa, I mean, Inoshishi Mozu in it’s latest attempt at world domination. Inoshishi has the ability to throw flash-bang devices which cause amnesia. They test this out on one of the Keystone Cops and a bumbling crook with great results.

episode26(1)

Hakuna Frickin’ Matata, bitches!

The team splits up to search the city after the latest attack which leaves a poor little girl not realizing her mom is right in front of her. Kuroda quickly deduces that Inoshishi will only attack when the team isn’t present and so tracks him to the warehouse district. Kuroda’s there to kick ass and chew bubble gum, but he forgot both. Inoshishi proceeds to hand Kuroda’s ass to him.

episode26(3).png

Ow!

Fortunately for Kuroda, the team shows up and forces Inoshishi to retreat, but not before detonating one of his Shock Bombs. Everyone is okay, except Kuroda, who seems to have forgotten who his friends are. He runs off and is chased by Mazurka and Inoshishi while Deathgiller fights the rest.

episode26(4)

Ow, my brain! The subs don’t make sense! It hurts!

One of the cool things about this show is that the actor portraying Kuroda, Jyunichi Haruta, did many of his own stunts. You can see his awesome skills on display throughout this episode, especially before and after the break. In this age where actors and actresses do their work against a green screen and in a harness, it’s refreshing to look back at a simpler time when it was done the old-fashioned way and they actually had to dodge the explosions.

Goggle V, Episode 25

Cue the Bon Jovi because we’re finally halfway there. Yes, after a bad week of computers crashing and other assorted mishaps, Episode 25 is finally finished! So, yeah, I guess you can say I’ve been Livin’ on a Prayer.

episode25(2)

“He just had to make the Bon Jovi reference, didn’t he” laments a beleaguered Akama.

Deathdark hits rock bottom. They’ve used 23 actual living animals and one plant since day one and now they’ve moved on to using extinct animals, namely pteranodon, a winged creature from the Mesozoic. Not an actual dinosaur, mind you, but it was the ’80s and people still thought everything that lived then was a dinosaur.

Stuck in the middle of all this is Hiroshi. He stumbles into the cave where Deathdark is hiding the pteranodon eggs they’ve somehow managed to create. After pulling a Jurassic Park and extracting the DNA from one of the eggs, they feed it into the Super Proliferator Machine (returning after a long absence) and create Pterano Mozu. He can fly (duh!) and create great gusts of wind with his wings. You know, kinda like Saboten Mozu did a few episodes back.

How do you fight a flying creature, you ask? Simple, you steal a TARDIS, skip ahead a few Sentai series, and take Jetman’s powers. Or did Jetman steal Goggle V’s powers? Either way, the team takes flight towards the end to lay the smackdown on Pterano Mozu.

The Kong fight is quite epic in this episode. Normally the team just calls upon Goggle Caesar and forms Goggle Robo and wraps things up quickly. Not this time. This time the team uses the little used power of reversing the film and actually un-merges Goggle Robo to lay a little more smackdown on the Kong. Then they re-merge to finish him off.

Not many funny screencaps for this episode. Apologies to those who enjoy them. The issues with my computer precluded me from seeing any. The humor will return, though. Also, no translation for preview this time, though Episode 26 looks like it’ll be pretty cool. Enjoy.

Quick Update

As the image suggests, I’ve been having computer problems the past few days and have thus had no time to work on Episode 25 of Goggle V. These problems are resolved now and I hope to resume work in the next few days.

I’m seeding episodes 1-20 at the moment for anyone missing out.

Goggle V, Episode 24

Can you believe we’re almost halfway done!

Deathdark’s latest Mozu is the aptly named Chameleon Mozu. As the name suggests, he can blend in with his surroundings, though we all know that’s just a myth. Regardless, Deathdark uses this power to steal gold. Why? It’s never explained.

episode24(1)

I can see the halfway point in this show coming!

Wataru is a friend of the Comboy’s who has the privilege of owning a camera. Even in 1980’s Japan these things must have cost a fortune, despite being made locally, as the group is envious of the device, meaning their Comboy salary must not cover much. He takes a picture of everyone and some other friends and later, in his own personal darkroom, discovers Chameleon Mozu hiding in the background. Deathdark catches wind of this somehow and captures the two boys and Deathgiller hits upon the idea of infusing Chameleon Mozu’s essense with their own, allowing him to change their own colors. What follows is a litany of color changes that would make modern liberals convulse in horror.

episode24(6)

Nothing to see here. Move along!

A shipment of gold bars is coming from South America and Deathdark plans on using the boys to steal it. Luckily the team shows up just in time to stop the nefarious plot.

episode24(7)

Well that’s new.

A few little added bonuses for this episode. I attempted a translation of a sign, specifically the bank sign at the beginning of the episode. I used Google’s translation app to accomplish this, so it might be botched. The same goes for the next time preview. I used the app there as well so it might be a tad botched, but I think I cleaned it up a bit. I might do this going forward, but here is just a test.

episode24(8)

Ha, ha, ha, ha! He used an app to translate this. Boy is he dumb!

Goggle V, Episode 23

Apologies for the delay. Work has kept me busy the past week.

The team is confronted by Kani Mozu, a crab that doubles as a bubble machine. But these bubbles are different. They foam up the water and make people not want to drink it. This makes sense as even Mr. Bubbles tastes nasty. The plan is to contaminate the 3/4ths of the Earth covered by water, thus killing all life. Where Deathdark plans on getting that much bubble bath is never explained.

episode23(1)

“And when I defeat Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania, I’ll be the best their ever was!”

Sucked into the middle of all of this is the boy, Kenta. His father is head of the local water treatment plant and is immediately accused of polluting the city’s water supply. Why someone who has toiled for years to provide clean drinking water to millions would suddenly put those millions, himself included, at risk is beyond me, but even his own son begins to suspect him after one of Kani Mozu’s attacks.

episode23(2)

Does this look like someone who’d destroy the environment?

Kani Mozu realizes early that he’s no match for Goggle V as a simple bubble blower and thus has a device attached to his second mouth that spits out “mecha kani”, essentially crabs with antenna attached. These are summarily destroyed by the team. So it begs to wonder if they’re for or against nature as I didn’t see any jump cuts to suggest the crabs weren’t really blown up.

Goggle V, Episode 22

I’ve been waiting for this episode to come around.

episode22(1)

And when you find that Gwen Stefani girl, wrap her up and ship her out!

Kujaku Mozu, the peacock monster, can bring dolls to life using his special arrows.

episode22(2)

I don’t like this new Green Arrow. Why can’t DC just leave their characters alone?

These dolls have been abandoned and therefore harbor ill feelings towards people. Deathdark decides to utilize this to terrorize the populace.

episode22(3)

I’m telling you, clowns are scary!

Miki goes undercover, first as the Geisha Doll to get information out of the Clown Doll.

episode22(4)

Let the fanservice begin!

After the team discovers the original doll and removes the arrow, Miki assumes the clown’s identity to gain access to the other dolls, where she learns of their whereabouts. Only French Doll refuses to reveal her location.

episode22(5)

The only good clown is a dead clown.

episode22(6)

Miki, why! Ten points deducted for dressing as a clown!

Turns out French Doll was separated from her prince, leading to Miki dressing as said prince to turn French Doll back to the side of good. This displeases Deathgiller, though, and he has French Doll turned back into a regular doll.

episode22(7)

I’m no rocket scientist, but I’m guessing you just messed up big time, Deathgiller!

Goggle V, Episode 21

Wow, after the last episode, this one is kind of a snoozer.

Deathdark has created Shirakansu Mozu, the coelacanth, a fish once thought dead for millions of years. Appropriately enough, the monster’s weapon is the ability to disgorge milk into lakes and rivers and create frozen fish sticks, I mean, fossilize all fish in the water. This is because man depends on fish and without them you’d no longer be able to teach a man to fish so that he could eat daily.

Shota is the son of a fish farmer. He helps his father breed salmon, which are then released into the wild to, potentially, breed with other salmon. Deathdark deems Shota’s father important and thus kidnaps him one night to breed the fish needed to test out their fossilizing milk. Why a group of evil scientists couldn’t do this themselves is never explained. Fortunately, the team has been staking out a commercial hatchery and finds their way into a fight with Deathgiller and company.

Didn’t catch many particularly funny captures in this episode, but I did catch Deathgiller channeling his inner Rosco P. Coltrane.

episode21(1)

Say, Boss, once I catch them Goggle Fives, can I get a few of them frozen fish sticks?

Torrent up as of 7/13.
