This episode is pure filler. The grandfather of one of Haruo’s friends is given a treasure map and decides to go looking for it, convinced his ancestors hid it in the mountains. I mean, sure, just believe the first map you’ve seen. Could be hundreds of years old. Could have been forged by Deathdark. Who knows. Not like the old man needs it. He’s easily able to hire a crew to go help him.
Turns out Deathgiller wants the treasure to. He must have finally seen the writing on the wall and decided it’s best to begin planning for retirement. I mean, what does Deathdark need with all that gold?
The team gets caught in a net. That’s it. They get caught. Forty-three episodes in and the best Deathdark can do is a net. Supposedly it’s a shocking net, but I never see them get shocked. Either way, it’s easily defeated by Goggle Spark and everyone gets away.
The Mozu this week is essentially fish bait. I mean, c’mon, and earthworm? I’ve seen the movie Squirm and still think the idea of earthworms being monsters is laughable at best. The scariest thing in this whole episode is Akama’s choice of wardrobe.
New Goggle Suit! Like it? I’m gonna be Blue from here on out.
