Postby jeffbert » 2 years ago

This episode is essentially a version of, err, inspired by Gernica (the giant snails story).

The girl is ミミ / Mimi / Mimi. She has come seeking Atom, because she believes only he can help.

加田里 (kanji meaning 'Addition,' 'Rice field,' & 'Village' respectively, among other things; though obviously not as a unit) / Kata sato / Kada-ri - in the 1st of many attempts to discredit robots, had gained the trust on Mimi, & sabotaged the robot farm's climate control machine.

Despite her best attempts, Mimi cannot convince Atom that this man is a villain. Atom believes Katari's lie, & the two kids follow Katari's directions, & descend the stairs into the heart of the machine.

Katari gloatingly tells him he has been tricked, & they will both soon be destroyed.

Obvioulsy lacking one of his original seven powers, Atom seem bewildered. Mimi is angry at his naivete, & blames it on his being a robot.

Putting the finishing touches on his scheme, Katari tells the people that the coming flood is Atom's fault. Katari tried to stop the disaster, etc., but bot Atom & Mimi were killed.

-fin

It seems to me, that there is just too much robot - Human conflict in this, a 50 episode series. While there was plenty in both the manga & B&W series, & some in Jetter Mars & the 1980 series, there is simply too much here.
