Sukeban Deka, Sukeban Deka (Yoko Minamino)

review by
Mike Haberfelner

Through no fault of her own, Okyo (Haruko Sagara) ends up with a baby, handed her by a man on the run from some thugs. Now it's up to her and her friends Yukino (Akie Yoshizawa) and Sukeban Deka Saki (Yoko Minamino) to track down the little one's parents - at first with no results. But then Saki goes on her actual assignment, to track down Sakazaki, a computer specialist with the army who has gone missing, and searching his apartment she finds out he is actually the kid's father. In the meantime, the baddies, of course members of the evil organisation Seiroukai, kidnap Okyo and the little boy, just to keep Sakazaki in check. His assignment: To build a fool-proof parcours of death traps to kill Saki for good. And when Saki embarks on her rescue mission, the plan seems to work as she's electrocuted via her own weaponized yoyo - but she has brought Yukino for reinforcement and is saved before any serious damage can occur. Later, they just avoid a minefield, but by that time Okyo has already freed herself and the baby and steps onto a landmine, and only just can Saki prevent her from lifting her foot again to set the mine off. Sakazaki, seeing the girl holding his son stepping onto a mine, has a total freakout and smashes the computer controlling the death traps, which forces Kiyuchi, subcommander of the Seiroukai, to send out his goons to finish off Saki and company, and when that doesn't work out, he goes after Saki himself - but Saki tricks him into stepping onto a mine, and if he doesn't want to go up with a boom, he better stand still. And Okyo and the baby? I hear you ask. Saki saves them of course, using her trusted yoyo, and all ends happily.

 

Some of the happenings in this episode are really silly, but in a good, campy way, and the plot is actually rather engaging and has some good action, plus a minefield is a reliable source for some good old-fashioned suspense - which is very much milked here. So in all, this is a fun one for sure.
