’81 CHOUJIN OLYMPICS: THE BIG FIGHT FINALS
LOCATION: TOKYO KOKURITSU STADIUM
SPECTATORS: 105,000 (SUPER-FULL HOUSE)
Warsman has now entered the Idol Choujin and has come to not really stand out much, but among the Choujin that have fought Kinnikuman, wasn’t he the No.1 in his brutality? He wants to bare his fangs to Kinnikuman and blossom into a flower again!!
Announcer: While taking in the killer Choujin current which is occurring from the high-voltage towers on Omegaman’s shoulders, Neptuneman has tied together these towers---!!
Announcer: The killer Choujin current that had come to not be discharged to the outside due to the two high-voltage towers being tied together, is causing a short and is running inside Omegaman’s body, scorching his internal organs!!
Suguru: Wh…why? You should be the same at the point of having your entire body taking in a large-volume of the high-voltage current, and yet, Neptuneman, why have you lived to this point---!?
Neptune: I…I’m raising a sound…
Suguru: A sound?
Neptune: I…I had the Neptune Message sent to the Justice Choujin scattered throughout the world: “Fight for the extermination of Phoenix’s villainous Choujin, even if you become a sacrificial stone of the children Choujin and our future descendants”…
Neptune: The Choujin who approve this message are in the middle of amassing from every country in the world to this Osaka Castle Panorama Stadium; the footsteps they have were raised by me!!
Suguru: Huh!? Where are the footsteps of the amassing Justice Choujin? Where!?
Neptune: Settle your ears carefully…listen…there are 50, 100…no, 300.
Narrator: The Choujin, who were over 500 that were scattered in every country of the world that have taken Neptuneman’s Neptune Message, were in the midst of gathering from the south, north, east and west turned towards Osaka Castle Panorama Stadium—
Terry: Kinnikuman, Neptuneman: we’re going now---!!
Ramen: Well, let’s hurry everyone--!!
Ramen: Ooh: Terryman, Warsman!!
Terry: All of you are saying you’re hearts were moved by the Neptune Message!! All of you are the same as us in seeing that address!
Voice: Uoo—the land of Osaka is before our eyes---!!
Terry: Ooh, that voice is!?
Terry: Ooh, Wolfman with Jessie Malvia!!
Terry: Ooh, all of you got the Neptune Message too!!
Wolf: Fuhahahaha: a number of people are glad about Kinnikuman, from many to many!!
Malvia: But please hold on: if we go to Osaka Castle and enter into the ring to assist Team Kinnikuman, they’ll come to lose by foul play!
Wolf: Ri…right: so then, we have to join in numbers and go to Osaka Castle for something…
Terry: It’ll be fine that we can’t go into the ring and assist Kinnikuman at all.
Terry: It’ll…be fine even if we’re just sitting in the audience! Everyone should want to be by Kinnikuman’s side and cheer him on!!
Terry: Don’t you think Kinnikuman now, who had his Burning Inner Strength stolen by Team Mariposa’s Main Body Mixer Taitei in the 1st round, could only have our encouragement to save him from crisis at the last moment---!!
(TN: Yudetamago referred to Mixer Taitei as “Second Guard”…I guess they forgot about Mister VTR, huh)
Wolf: That’s right: Kinnikuman has shared together all of his pain and enjoyment until now with us! Even if we’re in the audience seats, we can witness his fight with our own eyes to the end!!
Ramen: Right: if we’ve decided as such, then let’s not lose our way!!
Terry: This road is a direct path to Osaka Castle Tower! Kinnikuman and Neptuneman are ahead!!
Terry: Now, down the road of friendship---!!
Suguru: I…I can hear it too…
Suguru: The footsteps like a roar and a surging wave breaking my ears of the Justice Choujin Corp that reaches 500!
Phoenix: What’s with that nonsense…I can’t hear anything…
Neptune: Hoho—Phoenix-san, how can you be a Great King candidate of Planet Kinniku if you don’t hear that sound?
Neptune: You can’t recognize the footsteps of the Justice Choujin who will be your underlings when you take the Throne…you really aren’t a prince of Planet Kinniku, aren’t you?
Phoenix: Those words are unforgivable!!
Announcer: Phoenix suddenly has suddenly torn off two of the first-level ropes surrounding all sides!!
Suguru: That Phoenix, what is he planning taking off the rope covers, showing the wires and tying them up!?
Phoenix: Omegama—n! Give to me all of the electricity you have in your body! Thus you can absolutely kill Neptuneman---!!
Announcer: Building a bridge with the two wires he tied up, Phoenix is switching the high-voltage current that is in Omegaman’s entire body to his own body---!!
Suguru: Th…that Phoenix is turning his own body into a lightning rod…he plans to be a condenser and take into himself Omegaman’s high-voltage current----!!
Omega: Phoenix-sama, I’m gratefully happy that you have used your own body to remove and be given the high-voltage current in my own body; Omega Metamorphoses Release---!!
Announcer: Omegaman has had the electricity in his body taken by Phoenix and undone his transformation, returning to his original body---!!
Bibimba: Bu…but what is being planned by Phoenix who has taken in Omegaman’s high-voltage current!?
Phoenix: If…if I can…seal this nuisance…
Phoenix: It’ll be fine---!!
Announcer: Phoenix, with a high-voltage current entrusted in his whole body, is suddenly destroying the floors on each floor within Osaka Castle and is diving aiming for the underground---!!
Phoenix: Current Underground Burial---!! Hahahaha: I passed through the castle inside, dug underground and buried the current that was placed into my body!!
Bibimba: What…a calm, precise mobilization power with his own body in crisis…Kinnikuman…Super Phoenix really is different from Suguru-sama’s competition opponents until now…
Omega: Phoenix-sama, as thanks for saving my life, I’ve prepared the best transformation to use for killing Neptuneman---!!
Omega: It will be that!!
Suguru: What—Omegaman’s next transformation target is a pile-driver machine used for constructing buildings!?
Suguru: N…no: if Neptuneman, who’s grieving greatly with fatigue with that high-voltage current attack earlier, is attacked by Omegaman transformed into a pile-driver machine, I’m certain Neptuneman will be killed!!
Suguru: If…I somehow could intercept all of the scenery that can be seen from this Panorama Stadium, I could hold back Omegaman’s transformation but…
Suguru: Huh, this is!?
Suguru: This is one of the equipment items that emerged from within the windows of the ring during my Magic-Square Equipping Death Match with Satan Cross…isn’t this the Magic Square that can carry out transfigurations from an ordinary square board to a powerful weapon by folding it up!?
Suguru: I’m thankful: with just this Magic Square, I can rescue Neptuneman from Omegaman’s transformation attack!!
Omega: Omega Metamorphoses No. 8---!!
Announcer: The Magic Square thrown by Kinnikuman has started to rapidly unfold into the form of an umbrella high over Omegaman’s head, covering the Panorama Ring---!!
Announcer: Omegaman’s transformation beam that had been fired towards the pile-driver machine, has been cut off by Kinnikuman’s Square Parasol---!!
Omega: With…this, I can’t transform~~~!!
Suguru: Alright, Neptuneman: the Cross Bomber---!!
Announcer: The Ganryuu Island Combo seem to be in a Cross Bomber aerial combination---!!
Phoenix: Omegaman, cut off their arms---!!
Neptune: You’re soft—Omegaman!!
Announcer: The Ganryuu Island Combo have made an aerial rendezvous, switching techniques from a Cross Bomber to a Cross Enzui----!!
(SCRAMBLE FOR THE KINNIKU THRONE ARC)
SPECIAL VTR XCIX (XXXXXXXXIX)
THE JUSTICE CHOUJIN RUSHING TO OSAKA CASTLE!!
TN: In the midst of my ranting about the Neptune Message last chapter, I sort of almost forgot to ask this: how exactly did Neptuneman get that message out to all Choujin of Earth all at once? Was it some sort of magic mind telepathy Perfect Choujin (or just he) has? Did he turn Omegaman into a radio receiver? Does Omegaman have the means to activate Instrumentality with all Choujin uniting them all into one hive mind with Suguru as the leader and Bibimba to be choked to death randomly? (OK, forget the last part...earlier in this arc I compared this series to Watchmen, I really don't want to get into that mind-tripping anime) Well anyway, we get a whole collection of Choujin there, some who make sense, others...you just wonder why they're there or why the heck Yude still considers them as "good". Yeah I get this is build-up for the end but I just can't understand, get or like the whole "random Choujin from everywhere running to an obvious path to Osaka Castle no matter where they started from. I guess you could sort of say they want to pull something closer to some of the earlier arcs where a whole bunch of random Choujin supported Suguru regardless of not really being around (images of Specialman treating an entire group to tickets to Madison Square Garden comes to mind...I still don't know where he got the money from), but they seemed rather useless when they pulled that along the crowd shots...thus probably why they stuck with the crowd shots for the most part from most of the last few arcs. I guess it makes some sense...but it's still dumb.
As for the fight...the only real thing I didn't quite mind was Phoenix deciding to take the electric shocks from Omegaman to help him get undone...but the whole "spinning underground and grounding the electricity from himself" was just random as heck. Why the heck would Phoenix just destroy parts of the castle just to get rid of electricity instead of just grounding it through another means? (then again this castle makes no sense at all with all the wrestling rings and the massive stadium on the roof anymore) And then there's the Magic Square making a sudden return...it's hard for me to really say if that was intentional or just pulled out of nowhere considering we hadn't seen it for such a long time. (and I really can't tell anymore if Suguru even has the gauntlets to fold the things. Though I do have one admission: Cross Enzui was cool...the Friendship Magnetism still sucked though.
BTW: I hated that "entry" about Warsman being in "a non-prevalent Idol Choujin"...there are rumors about Yude's feelings regarding Warsman and why he never was prominent beyond the second Choujin Olympics but it really seems to show here. (at least he has a greater role in Nisei when Yude and fans rediscovered him)
