Go-Busters 41 & 42
The Go-Busters go to this guy’s house who has found a Messiah Card…but he wants 10million yen for it. See Go-Busters, that’s what you get for advertising a reward! They want to look at it just to check, and the guy glances at a massive safe. And then, a woman in a pink wig and a pink version of the Go-Busters civilian uniform appears in the window. She flips across the room, easily crack the safe, leaves a card, and leaps out of the window. The card – her name is Phantom Thief Pink Buster. I’m having Abare Pink vibes.
The three chase after and encounter her in the streets – Yoko is thrown from a balcony (and somehow doesn’t get hurt), Ryuuji has flour (?) thrown in his face, but, she stops to talk to Hiromu. ‘The more dangerous something is, the more valuable it will be’. I guess that’s her motivation. The two are soon met by Buglers and Hiromu morphs. He tries to convince her to hand over the card, but she runs. Hiromu leaves Ryuuji and Yoko with the Bugles while he chases after her. Um, it’s now day all of a sudden and Hiromu can’t find Pink Buster anywhere….all he sees is one woman walking by. Come on, Hiromu! That’s obviously her! There’s no one else around! Come on! Anyway, this woman gets into a taxi and takes out a Messiah card from her bag. KNEW IT.
Back at the EMC, the team discuss Pink Buster – a thief who can appear like a ghost, who only steals from villains. Is she trying to help, but failing miserably? Hiromu wants to find her before the Metaroid forms, but a Megazord is already transporting! SHOCK! The Go-Busters find the Metaroid at the guy’s house (the guy at the beginning, who was polishing a Ganesh statue, I should probably add). The guy simply hands over this statue as soon as they arrive. I thought he was greedy? The Metaroid reveals himself as Louperoid (based on a magnifying glass…apparently) and he leaves.
Hiromu runs into the streets where he meets Pink Buster once again. Hiromu says he doesn’t have time for her, but she holds up a Messiah Card and claims she was thinking of giving it back (as if). So Louperoid came from a different card perhaps? Hiromu tries to grab the card, but Pink Buster keeps nonchalantly moving out of the way, but her glasses are soon knocked off and Hiromu recognizes her as the woman from before! Really? Hiromu can remember a random woman’s face? She reveals herself as Saotome Reika and she asks Hiromu to close his eyes while moving closer to him. She grabs his Morphin Brace with little effort and uses it for bribery. If Hiromu helps her with her job, he’ll get that Messiah Card. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
