What was that?
10 May 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I remember this show from my teenage years. Koichi Ose seemed to tower over the rest of the Japanese cast, yet he was only 5'7" tall. Japanese born before the war are much shorter than their children.

It was sad to see that Fuyukishi Maki, who played loyal Tombei, died from cancer. That is a horrible way to die.

Something about the show that always made me laugh was when one of the villains would mouth about twelve words and the subtitles would read "What was that?" The same people seemed to do the subtitles for all non English language films. It was a lot of fun though, even if cheaply done. Local shows at that time were no more sophisticated. Someone would slam a door and the whole wall would shake.
