12.2 Protecting the Schoolyard (MELMO)

Postby jeffbert » 9 years ago

This was the 2nd part of episode #12; two short stories were made. :lol:

Image
This boy has a problem, his parents have his life full of extracurricular activities, he has little time for play.

Image

Image

Image

Image
This sensei bears a resemblance to the 1980s AB's Kathy, & she pops up in various roles throughout this series.

Image
Mars also has a similar episode in which he rebells against his master.

Image

Image
Though the kids initially fight each other, they will soon rally against their common enemy.

Image

Image

Image
"Medic!"

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
Now they direct their wrath at the teachers.

Image
:tezuka: goes down!

Image

When the kids wear out, their mothers are there to comfort them, all except our heroine.
Image

Image
Nitako & her mama are here instead of Shibugaki & his mama. $$

Image

Image

Image

Image
Poor Melmo! Does this scene remind anyone of anything from the 1980s AB? :cry:

Image

Image
Just as Atom has Ochanomizu, so Melmo has Dr. Waregarasu; true, he is not a suitable replacement for mother, but he is all Melmo has.

Is it just me of this episode ending is reminiscent of the 1980 Save the Classmate? Remember when the parents are crying with their kid in their arms, in the sunset?

I had not taken screenshots of the kids and parents for the screenshots thread; the closest one I have is this one.

Edit: lol jeffbert, I had missed your question... I'm curious if that was what you were thinking of then! :)

Yes, indeed I was referring to it. :D

This one says it all: "I wish I had parents."

In the earlier versions, Atom sees animal mothers with their offspring, & begins to understand the relationship between parents & children, that he had obviously forgotten since Dr. Tenma sold him to the circus. It seems apparent that the 1980s AB adapted certain elements from recent series, rather than merely repeat the older versions of stories. There are several plot elements in this series that contributed to the 1980s AB. I expect to upload Ep #6 today, & that is one we have already talked about.

I miss Kathy. I wished she had appeared in another episode so we ourselves could see the more developed Atom. I guess we can always assume they still see each other offscreen.

Too many characters were single episode ones. :cry:
