The episode starts out with Cocoa and Lamune looking at maps and discussing
where they should go next. Milk busts in, and starts yelling at Cocoa because
they forgot to bring food. Milk screams and manhandles both Cocoa and Lamune;
then takes control of the ship and sets it on a course at warp factor 9.
Next scene takes place at Don Harumage's base, and he divines the location
of Lamuness and Co. He sends Da Cider and Lesuka after them. Milk severely
crash lands Stan Hansen at Pokkin city. The crew runs out of the ship and
are hit with a rude surprise - people are starving in the streets. Here
they meet Cham, and learn of why the place is in such trouble. They then
feed Cham (Milk watches him eat with jealousy, and protests to Cocoa).
A few seconds later, they are surrounded by the king's soldiers. Lamune
takes care of them with Astoroki rather easily (after severly insulting
them). After the commercial break, the apparant bad guy of the episode,
Pokkin, is dancing before a statue and is surrounded by all the food from
Pokkin City. Da Cider and Lesuka make their timely appearance. They discuss
Don Harumage's plans, and the leader of the soldier Lamuness whipped rushes
in. A few seconds later, Stan Hansen busts in. The soldiers attack Lamune
again; this time Lamune has the 8 Pon Brothers take care of them. Lamuness
then rushes over to face Da Cider and Lesuka. Da Cider and Lamuness have
a short melee bout, Lamune being the winner. Pokkin calls forth the Monskar
- a giant six armed beast. Lamune calls forth King Scassher, and the fight
insues. It looks as if the Monskar will win, but Pokkin breaks the rules
by drinking and being a mecha pilot; Scassher then destroys the mecha.
Da Cider and Lesuka escape, and the people of the city beat the crap out
of Pokkin. Da Cider's punishment is being trapped between two spiked walls,
Lesuka's punishment is being poked in various places with a needle by an
ecchi robot doctor.
In order for Don Harumage to see where Lamune and company are, he asks
his crystal ball to "Please show me them" in rather horrible but understandable
This episode has a distinctly ancient Chinese feel to it.
Pokkin could be taken from "Pocky", a Japanese snack food. It's not too
unreasonable in a show named after a soda.
