Hotheaded country boy Nobuteru Sugo goes to town when his sister is abducted by an evil gang boss who is trying to buy up land in Shinjuku by blackmail and intimidation. Sugo meets other heroes who help him in his quest: one is a crossdressing martial artist who can disable a man without breaking a fingernail; another a Christian priest who believes in muscular, not to say aggressive, evangelism; and yet another a psychotic nun who is gentle as a lamb with orphan children but freaks out if anyone catches a glimpse of her tattoo.
Based on a story by Irresponsible Captain Tylor-creator Hitoshi Yoshioka that retold Shi Nai-an and Luo Guanzhong's 14th-century Chinese novel Water Margin in a sci-fi setting, the final scene reveals that the characters are the reincarnations of the novel's Lin Chung, Hu San-Niang, and company, but this allusion is left unclear in an English dub that appears ignorant of the distant literary origins. Mitsuteru Yokoyama's unrelated 1969 Water Margin manga in Kibo Life was much more faithful to the original. It was never animated, but several of the characters were lifted wholesale for the later Giant Robo. For another rehash of the Water Margin, see Hakkenden. NV
