Straight Ahead to the Police Spirit! During the MRR open day she and her husband noticed Taiyoh was downcast at the other cadets having some sort of family present to visit them. As such they made a banner to support him in the mock battles between the Machine Robo and thereafter acted as parental figures to the boy, who had lost his own parents in a plane crash four years before.

  • It is heavily implied that the Oigawas' lack of children was not a choice.
