Don’t worry. The subninjas didn’t get to me this time. I was taking a break due to “lack of motivation”. I’m still around. To prove it, I’m releasing episodes 16, 17 & 18 of Uchuu Majin Daikengo!
Both the Italian and Spanish dubs were used as a base for these episodes. Episodes 16 & 17 used the Spanish dub, translated by myself and BendesidaOty. Episode 18 used the Italian dub as a base, translated by Griffon. (Thanks again, Griffon!)
On Episode 16, titled “The Planet of Migratory Birds”, every planet is looking forward to the arrival of a flock of robotic migratory birds that flies from planet to planet, a symbol of everlasting friendship and peace. As for the Magellans, Lady Baracross has some vile plans for the birds… like turning them into missiles that bring armageddon to any planet they come across! As for Prince Ryger and company, they visit Planet Arabida where they meet up with their minister of defense, Laurenz, and Arabida’s sickly princess, Carina. (Hmm… “Laurenz of Arabida“… where have I heard that before…?)
On Episode 17, titled “Friendship on the Third Planet”, we return to Earth where Sabu dreams of meeting Ryger again. However, Earth takes a turn for the worst when General Roboleon feigns a peaceful cooperation with Earth. Of course, Sabu knows what intentions Roboleon truly has, so it’s up to him to call Prince Ryger back to Earth and convince Earth’s dignitaries to not side with the wolf in sheep’s clothing.
As for Episode 18, titled “The Mysterious Ghost Planet”, the focus is now on Planet Atlan, a haunted planet that is rumored to be a “space graveyard”. Grand Emperor Magellan wants to know of any secrets the planet might have, and Lady Baracross sends a reluctant Roboleon to do her dirty work. As for Prince Ryger, he has to rescue a spaceship that drifted too close to Planet Atlan. Too bad he has to do it alone as Cleo doesn’t feel so well. Perhaps her Aunt Flo came for a visit…
Toku Nishio provided the voices for Daimaru in the “Robot Carnival OAV”, Musashi Tomoe in “Getter Robo”, and Mr. Popo from the Dragon Ball series. Sadly, Toku Nishio passed away on July 19, 2005.
As for the legendary You Inoue, she had many famous voice roles in her career. Some of her most famous roles include Sheryl Formossa in “Space Runway Ideon”, Reika Sanjou in “Invincible Steel Man Daitarn 3” and Manabu in “Daltanious: Robot of the Future”. One her last roles was of Ryou Bakura in the first season of Yu-Gi-Oh. Sadly, she developed lung cancer in 2001 and later passed away on Feburary 2, 2003. Her role of Ryou Bakura was later taken over by Rika Matsumoto after Inoue’s death.
