Sukeban Deka II - A Battle of Silvery White! Panic at the Ski Slopes

episode 2.13

Japan 1986
produced by
Toei/Fuji Television

based on the manga by Shinji Wada

TV series
Sukeban Deka, Sukeban Deka (Yoko Minamino)

review by
Mike Haberfelner

Yukino (Akie Yoshizawa) takes part in a chess tournament held at a skiing resort, and she has brought along Saki (Yoko Minamino) and  Okyo (Haruko Sagara) as her cheerleaders. But of course, Saki wouldn't be Saki without suspecting the evil organisation Seiroukai having their hands in the event. But at first everything seems on the level, with Saki even being allowed to make the acquaintance of young Hiroshi, one of the contestants in the tournament, and the two get on very well, even though he pushes Yukino out of the tournament. But of course Saki's hunch is right, and Seiroukai thugs are on the premises, one making a desparate and failed attempt to kill her even. What she doesn't know is that Hiroshi's wheelchair-bound sister is a member of Seiroukai, and she pretty much forces Hiroshi to lure Saki into a trap on a remote ski slope. He has a change of heart only to late and tries to save her, but ultimately she saves him, is shot at, rolls down a slope and is left to die - but of course, Yukino and Okyo find her and get her back to the hotel.

At the tournament meanwhile, Hiroshi intentionally loses the final game, which in turn prompt the Seiroukai to shoot his sister, and before they can kill Hiroshi as well, Saki, Yukino and Okyo arrive on the scene, and not even guns and villains on snow mobiles stand a chance against girl power and Saki's weaponized yoyo of course ...

 

Now the plot of this episode feels a bit forced, really as if the writers just randomly picked the elements chess tournament and skiing resort and then tried to fit a story around it - which really is part of the charm of the episode, as its weird incoherence makes it somewhat endearing. And while the action isn't super-exciting, it's still fun to see the girls fight in the snow for a chance and ride snow mobiles. Not really a must-see episode mind you, but enjoyable while one watches at least.
