08, Robot Express

Postby jeffbert » 2 years ago

This episode borrows from Tezuka's feature film, Undersea Super Train Marine Express. The https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Undersea_Super_Train:_Marine_Express page seems to cover it fairly well, though I took only a glance at it. It likely also borrows from the movie, Speed; as I recall that started the idea of death if you go too slow. Wait! I think the Batman series had the Batmobile set to explode if it went 65 MPH, -- no, that was if it went that fast.

Some of Metro City's citizens are at that othe city to ride the train home on its maiden voyage, including little ニャン子 / Nyan-ko / Nyanko & her papa, whom we met in ep #1.

There is a bomb on the train, but it is already moving! If its speed drops below xxx, the bomb explodes.
