Teh Iron Cross Army has developed an extra strong laser and attached it to one of their Machine Bems (~ robots), Kabuton, which is a crossbreed of robot and insect and can therefore shrink to insect size.

Why does the Iron Cross Army need an insect-sized Machine Bem?

Because they want it to follow around Shinko (Izumi Oyama), who works for professor Sunamura who has developed a meteorite detection device that would expose the headquarters of the Iron Cross Army. Once in the professor's lab, Kabuton grows to human size and tries to kill those present and steal the plans for the device, but Shinko just happens to be Takuya's (Sinji Todou) sister, and Takuya just happens to be Spider-Man, secretly, and in his secret superhero identity he saves not only his sister and the professor but also manages to defeat Kabuton, using a mirror against his laserbeam and this way injuring him.

Kabuton is forced by Amazoness (Yukie Kagawa), second-in-command of the Iron Cross Army, to continue following Shinko around in his insect form despite his injury, but once Shinko finds the injured insect, she - not knowing that it really is the Machine Bem who attacked her - nurses it back to health and uses it as a sort of fashion accessory - the latest fad from Europe - as well. And when she finally frees Kabuton, it has fallen in love with her.

Not happy the way things have turned out, Amazoness orders Kabuton to kill Shinko and the professor, but before he attacks her, he exchanges the fake diamond she wears around her neck for the real one that fuels his laser beam, thus rendering his own all-powerful laser cannon useless.

In the final conflict, while Spider-Man engages in hand-on-hand battle with Kabuton, Amazoness tries to shoot Shinko using her ray-gun, but Shinko's diamond deflects her rays and chases her away. Ultimately, Kabuton grows to giant size, and Spider-Man calls his giant robot Marveller/Leopardon to defeat and destroy it, which is not a hard task because without its laser beam, Kabuton is pretty useless.


A half-robot/half-insect falling in love with a human woman - that's an idea that's pretty outlandish and also pretty inspired ... in a childish and slightly silly way of course. But then again, isn't this show so (unintentionally) enjoyable because it's childish and silly?
