Time Stranger (originally released in the U.S. under the title GoShogun: The Time Étranger) is a 1985 movie followup to the television series Sengoku Majin GōShōgun (roughly translated as Demon-Lord of War Savaged GoShogun). Set 40 years after the TV show, the film follows Remy, the only female member of the GoShogun team, as she lays dying in a hospital bed remembering her comrades. While the television series never received a faithful English adaptation (it was cut together with an unrelated series and dubbed as Macron-1 in the U.S.), the movie is capable of acting as a stand-alone film and was translated fairly accurately for its English release. It is often noted that despite being based on a lighthearted giant-robot kids show, the film takes on a much darker and more adult-oriented tone with only small hints to the nature of its predecessor (the only reference to the giant robot that served as the series's namesake is a small toy hanging from Remy's rear-view mirror), leaving many English-speaking viewers oblivious to the film's origins.
The following weapons were used in the anime film Time Stranger:
Smith & Wesson Model 29
Remy 's personal weapon is a Smith & Wesson Model 29 revolver with a 6 inch barrel. Despite the weapons size and her relatively small stature, she claims to have gotten used to its weight and recoil.
Shingo Hojo's weapon of choice is a Mossberg 500 shotgun. Several other Mossberg 500 shotguns are seen being used by police officers at a roadblock near the beginning of the film.
M3 "Grease Gun"
One of the bank robbers near the beginning of the film fires at Remy's car with a M3 submachine gun. For some unknown reason, the weapon's front sight is mounted on the barrel. Another M3 is seen being used by a police officer in Remy's dream.
One of the bank robbers is seen holding a Tokarev TT-33 pistol.
Unknown Submachine Gun
Several of the GoShogun members use an unidentified (and likely fictional) submachine gun during the final battle in Remy's dream. The weapon is an Uzi-style submachine gun with a metal folding stock and flipdown foregrip (similar to a PM-63 RAK) as well as a forward sling mount beneath the barrel and a ported compensator on the muzzle.
During the last day in the village in Remy's dream, Yatta-la Kernagul makes use of an M2 Flamethrower.
The police officers in Remy's dream use several generic semi-automatic pistols that lack any real defining features.
Unidentified Machine Gun
One of the police officers is seen operating an unidentified vehicle-mounted heavy machine gun.
Mk 2 Hand Grenade
In addition to his Mossberg, Shingo often uses Mk 2 hand grenades to clear out large groups of enemies.
The night before their escape, Shingo is seen taking stock of the GoShogun team's arsenal, including his own Mossberg 500.
