Episode: 14 (A wedding dress is the target), cut 14-39. To seal the demon of the week, Jeanne and Sinbad attend a fancy wedding in disguise. However, when Jeanne recognizes her rival in the crowded room, she screams and accuses him of molesting her. Outraged by her ploy, he drops his disguise, runs a line to the ceiling, and makes this athletic swing out of the way. And while everyone is staring at him as he carries out this stunt, Jeanne, unnoticed, is making her way toward the elevator leading to demon-infested bride’s trousseau ...

Sinbad’s over-the-top kaitou outfit is one of the glories of this quirky and under-estimated series. Yet ... who else would send an advance notice to the police and then show up in his extravagant kaitou form, dressed in a black trench coat and floppy hat. It’s almost as if he’s trying to distract the police’s attention, y’think, so his rival Jeanne can nab the demon? But that doesn’t make sense, now, does it?

Anyhow, this wonderfully choreographed Tarzan swing shows him at his best. Here is the A1 genga, showing him pulling up on the line he’s run to the ceiling to give him enough slack to make the big move to the left. He pulls himself to the right, then in the A2 genga (first thumbnail), we see the big swing start.
