Ultra Q Review: Episode 5 Peguila is here!
This episode starts off with a trip to Antarctica where an exploration crew has been researching and exploring the region for several years. We learn that a man went missing a few years earlier. Shortly after the new crews arrival the temperature begins dropping at an alarming rate. Out of no where one of the giant exploration snow truck gets lifted into the air and tossed away like it was a leaf picked up in the wind. One night the crews nurse steal one of the trucks and heads out on her own, turns out that she was engaged to the man who went missing. She manages to actually find the man's dog guarding his frozen body. The dog had stayed around for all those years guarding his the lost man's body and surviving by eating a moss only found in the area. While the crew was trying to dig up the mans body ,the monster Peguila appears and we soon learn the Peguila has been the cause of the rapid temperature drops, and the mysterious lifting of the truck. While Peguila was attacking, the crew noticed that Peguila did not seem to like the dog. They realized that the dog was covered in moss and that Peguila might be vulnerable to it or not like the moss. The exploration crew returns to the base and uses moss extract to make a chemical missile to attack Peguila ,in case Peguila decides to attack the base again. When Peguila finally attacks the base again the crew fires the missile and Peguila flees Antartica.
This was a great episode and it was cool to see the monster that looks to be related to another Ultra series monster Chandora not sure if they are directly related but I do know that if the two were to fight Peguila would most likely win because the time I saw Chandora in Ultraman Episode 8 he did not display any special abilities like Peguila had. The design of Peguila was really cool and I really liked that they sort of left the episode open that Peguila might still be alive in the previous episodes so far all the monsters have been killed or it was implied that they were going to be killed. Maybe we will see where Peguila fled off to in a later episode. So far this episode has been one of my favorites of the Ultra Q series so far. We will see what the rest of the series brings to the table, I really enjoy this series and really recommend picking it up!
