Technical and Historical Notes

 

Labor X is a homemade labor built for one purpose: revenge. When Tokyo police Special Vehicles commander Zen Sofue is dismissed from his job, he blames Division 2 Capt. Kiichi Goto for his misfortune. After his dismissal, Sofue and his son open a repair shop, where he constructs Labor X. Sofue and his son then engage in a campaign of harassment against Goto and sabotage against Division 2 to make Goto look incompetent. Sofue's plan culminates in an attack on the SV2 station house with Labor X to kill Goto. However, the poorly constructed Labor X proves to be a non threat and falls apart under its own weight, thus ending Sofue's quest for vengeance.
