Following the announcement of Sei's arranged marriage to a
member of a rival faction, the veil drops on years of old
rivalries. If you think an arranged marriage won't sit well
with Sei, well, you can only imagine what Amy feels like when
a hacker gets his fingers into Amy's computer... Meanwhile,
terrorists hijack a train and a giant bug is unleashed upon
the city. All in a day's work for Jo. But has even Jo met
her match in Ms. Takane Katsu, an elite law dog from Osaka?
These two have more in common than they realise...

accompany Sei to her grandfather's huge and expensive party.

Meg breaks a priceless vase. However the one witness to the
accident, a dirty old man, promises Meg his silence - as long
as she'll return the favour... sexually.
Uncharted Cyberspace Amy is getting a little annoyed that
someone keeps hacking into her computer and leaving pictures
of creatures with her head grafted onto them. She manages
to enlist Kyo to take her into the city so that she can get
hold of the technology she needs to track the hacker.
episode shows that there is a little bit of a atmosphere between
Leo, the girls'
mechanic, and Jo. He's annoyed that Jo managed to damage Django
on a previous mission. Some additional comic relief is offered
when we finally get to meet the hackers that have been fooling
with Amy's computer.
Angel, Western Hawk, sees Jo on a mission away from home.
A terrorist is on the loose and has already shown what he
is capable of - by crashing an empty train to show that he
means business. Meanwhile, at the DDD League wrestling tournament
things are not going as they should. A carefully scripted
fight falls apart when the villain suddenly transforms into
a real monster and starts attacking anything that moves.
episode takes us to a DDD tournament - about as close to a
WWE event as you can imagine. Here carefully scripted fights
between costumed actors playing super heroes and super villains
are played out for the audience to enjoy. But what does this
tournament have to do with a terrorist that is currently threatening
the local authorities? More than you'd think.

and the mysterious gigantic robot that will stop at nothing
to ensure justice fails.

nostalgia flooding back. Robot battles in the middle of a
busy city will no doubt have a special place in lots of our
hearts. But it's good to see this being brought up to date.
are pretty impressive for this release. We get an audio commentary
with the American cast on the Uncharted Cyberspace
episode; a number of really amusing subtitled Japanese radio
drama segments, textless versions of the opening and closing
titles (however on both the Japanese and English version of
the closing titles you can't turn off the subtitle translation
- which is a little silly); and trailers for other releases.
another volume bursting with fun episodes.
