SF Saiyuki Starzinger II – Episode 6 (70/73)

Kugo vs Fake Kugo

Dragon, a monster once defeated by Kugo, disguised himself as Kugo in revenge and launched an attack on the planet Spalleta. He severely injures the king’s son, whose father refuses to submit to Princess Aurora, and instills hatred in the people. Unaware of this, Kugo is attacked for a crime he does not know anything about. On the condition that Jogo becomes a hostage, Kugo takes it upon himself to capture the impostor, but if he fails to catch the real culprit, Jogo will be killed!

Translation Thoughts

If you have trouble differentiating the two Kugos, the fake one speaks faster and in a slightly higher pitch, but is very noticeable. That makes him harder to translate too, at least for me.

At 11:12 Kugo says:

Aitsu wa DORAGA-sei de deatta tatsumaki MONSUTAA ni chigainai yo
That must be the tornado monster we encountered on Planet Dragon

Honestly, they never called the first planet “Planet Dragon” anywhere until now, but the first monster was indeed called Dragon, and it is the same monster. I translated it as “first planet”. Jogo also mentions this earlier, at 9:58.

  1. Thanks! When you finish the series, will you be doing the Starzinger Toei Manga Matsuri movie? I think skarohuntingsociety did it some years ago but I don’t see it available anywhere.

    1. I haven’t think about that, I didn’t even remember that movie existed. Who knows?

      The TSHS version is not hard to find, you can find it either in Nyaa or in Bitsearch.

  2. This was a fun episode! Would have been better if they didn’t use the same trick twice (first Jogo then Kugo are revealed to not be monsters by their chivalrous acts) but i like the continued theme of monsters being indistinguishable from people, even if here it is a clear war crime (masquerading as the enemy on the battlefield). So thanks again for the subs!
