At the beginning of this episode, some details of the relationship
between the mortal enemies Professor Monster (Mitsuo Ando) - he's the
baddie, in case you wonder - and the benevolent alien Garia, who
turned Takuya (Shinji
Toudou) into Spider-Man, back on their home planet called Planet Spider
are revealed and how they came to earth 400 years ago.
Eventually, the action shifts to modern times, where Garia finally dies
and Takuya and his
girlfriend Hitomi are investigating the case of a derailed train - and wouldn't
you know it, Takuya finds out that Professor Monster and his Iron Cross
Army are behind it all, and he wrestles a few Iron Cross Army goons before
they release another giant monster called Machine Bem and Spider-Man calls
his giant robot Marveller that can turn into a giant robot called
Leopardon and defeats the giant monster ...
Apart from a few details, the second episode of the Japanese Spider-Man
series is pretty much a repeat of the first episode, at least action-wise
there is not much new about this one. Still, if you like cheap and
childish giant monsters and robots, this might be for you ...
Plus, there's one funny scene when Takuya claims he didn't even try to
save Hitomi - who has no idea that he really is also Spider-Man - because
he's a pacifist.
