“Follow the Balloon!” / “The Birth of a Super Hero”
Bringing in the new year in style, baby!
Happy new year, everyone!
Shin gets lost in the department store. Nene, Kazama, and Shin are in charge of cleaning the chicken coop at school. The Noharas go to the local shrine to celebrate Shichi-Go-San.
Since Shin-chan is a never-ending, weekly TV anime, the show tends to follow the seasons and holidays. So this episode aired on November 9, 1992. Shichi-Go-San then followed on November 15th the next week.
You might wonder why I’m pumping these episodes out so quickly. I actually have a backlog of episodes translated (through the end of 1992!). Translation is only one part of the work when subbing this series though.
I had originally wanted to try to get to the December 1992, and thus Christmas-oriented, episodes this month… but I don’t think that will be possible. I will be away for the next two weeks or so, thus putting a dent in that plan! Sorry!
Maybe I can continue these releases around New Year’s!
Happy holidays, everyone!
“Can’t Handle the Cold”
Inside a refrigerated warehouse, the showdown between Shiro and Dekapoo begins! Even the cold is a bit too much for a hero to handle without proper clothing, baby!
Misae and Shin-chan battle a pesky cockroach. Shin gets a bimsical exflamination (physical examination). Shin and Hiroshi wash the car!
“The Hardworking Ants”
Ants! Fleas! Ants! Fleas! The two creatures chant their name throughout the episode! Who will come out on top?
In this episode, the college girl returns for Shin-chan to heckle, Shin-chan gets a lead role in a play, and Misae and Hiroshi have an emotionally heated fight!
