This wicked little set of sketches shows cuts 692 and 695 from the movie Gensomaden Saiyuki: Requiem, a 2001 sequel to the first season of this series. Here Dougan, the major villain of this episode, seems to have the upper hand in more than one way.

I haven't screened the movie, but I recognize the device in his hand as the detonator button for an especially nefarious weapon known as a Protagonist Terminator. First used in the James Bond saga, it's based on a simple premise: when the button is pushed, one or more of the plot's protagonists is destroyed in some especially horrible way, by being dropped into a tank of carnivorous maggots, for instance, or being melted into Protagonist Jell-O by a plasma ray.

This cut shows Dougan holding up the button, then after an appropriately nasty sneer, he presses it and roars in typical major-villain fashion with unholy laughter.

Shown here is the fine A1 genga, with the equally dramatic first layout in the thumbnail. Is the Journey East about to come to an abrupt end? See the rest of the sketches in this great set!
