So about a decade after this, Rintaro went on to be chief director on the Space Pirate Captain Harlock TV series. Like many recent Sabu & Ichi episodes, this one features that Toei wind sound effect, that was used to such great effect in the Harlock series. Also, Sabu & Ichi’s battle stance as shown in the second picture reminds me of Harlock & Daiba fighting the Mazone in episode #9, and that song the children are singing at the end of the episode is the same song that Mayu sings at the end of Harlock #30.

Having failed in her attempts to get her husband Ryusaku to come with her, Shizuko makes her confession to Gozo Daimaru alone in Pastor Wakayama’s church. We find out more details about the events following Chizuko and Shinobu’s birth, although there’s still a crucial part of that story that remains a mystery. Gozo is furious, thinking Shizuko has ulterior motives for relating a fabrication. Shizuko makes a fateful decision to take what she feels is full responsibility for her actions, and everyone’s lives are shaken up by this decision. As Michio continues to prepare the Migrating Bird Gang for a quixotic war against the Daimaru family, Yuko begs him to give a farewell concert for his fans at the Kingdom of Fire music club.
