Reid Stories: Cyborg 009 Trailer and Vecto: Vengeance - Chapter 3.2

If you like cyborgs, check out this trailer to the anime version of Cyborg 009:

"Cyborg 009 (サイボーグゼロゼロナイン Saibōgu Zero-Zero-Nain?) is a manga created by Shotaro Ishinomori. It was serialized in many different magazines, including Monthly Shōnen King, Weekly Shōnen Magazine, Shōnen Big Comic, COM, Shōjo Comic, Weekly Shōnen Sunday, Monthly Shōnen Jump and Monthly Comic Nora in Japan. The first two arcs of the manga were published in English by Tokyopop with all the sound effects left out untranslated; as of 2006 it is out of print. However, in 2012, comiXology acquired the digital distribution rights to Shotaro Ishinomori's catalogue.[1]"

Here's where you can buy the eight episodes of the 2003 anime version: Cyborg 009 - Uncut and Unedited.

And here's my Vecto: Vengeance scene of the week:

(Previously: Chais leaves Streamline a ransom note that contains a news video blaming Streamline for attempted bank robbery. A new video reveals that Streamline and Vecto are sought after concerning the deaths of the SS6 Formation.)

Streamline shut the Nexus screens off and threw the note aside. “Great--just great! What are we gonna do, now?”

“At least I’m out of the picture!” Crysilis said.

Streamline narrowed his eyes. “Just shut up, will ya?” He sat down. “How would you like it if your weapon was stolen and you were the one made as the criminal?”

Crysilis paused. He never really cared much about his weapons, but he thought best to keep quiet. Streamline had his head lowered, looking over his Turbo Blaster for scratches with the help of a little light from his helmet. Crysilis could tell Streamline missed his Omega Blaster and let Streamline sulk as he wandered to the edge of the roof. He doubted the kid thief could capture Vecto, so it was only natural to assume Vecto willingly went with him, he thought. And since Vecto disconnected his transmission link with him and Streamline, it meant Vecto was taciturn of where he was headed so they wouldn’t follow. Or perhaps he was simply hiding his tracks to avoid a signal interception from the Acaterran government. But leaving them again, when they were supposed to go to Azmeck’s condominium, was incongruous and irresponsible of him, Crysilis thought. He looked around the fake moonlit sky, wondering where Vecto would go, until he saw a small orb flying in the distance. Below the orb was what appeared to be a suspended rifle.

Crysilis did a double-take. “Hey, Streamline! I found your gun!” he yelled out, looking back, not believing what he saw.

“Don’t be mess’n with me!” Streamline said with his head low.

“I’m serious! Look!”

Streamline gradually stood and dragged his way over to him. Sure enough, his Omega Blaster was hovering in the air, wobbling toward them. The orb swung above them and dropped the rifle. Before it landed, Streamline leaped forward, grabbed the strap, and rolled to his feet.

Crysilis looked over to see Streamline inspecting it and shook his head. He turned his attention to the orb.

“Where’s your master, Vecto?” Crysilis asked the device.

“He is detected approximately 14 miles from here, west bound,” the squeaky robotic voice responded.

“West? But that’s toward the abandoned airshaft,” Crysilis said aloud. He glanced back at Streamline, who was still examining his gun. “Come on, Stream. We’ll have to go to Azmeck’s later,” he said, yanking him by the arm. “If they get a hold of Vecto, they’ll ...” He paused and couldn’t think of an answer.

Streamline stood, twirling his Omega Blaster. “I’m more worried about them,” he said, echoing Crysilis’ thoughts.

(Is Vecto headed for a trap? If so, what will happen to those trying to contain him? Find out more in the next installment of Vecto: Vengeance!)
