Ultraman Hit Song History Legend Hero Hen
and Ultraman Hit Song History New Hero Hen
are two 45 minute commemoration compilations of theme songs and clips of the Japanese tokusatsu
that were put together for the show's 45th anniversary. If you're pressed for time, you can just watch the original theme song with English subtitles.

NEGADON!! "NEGADON - the Monster from Mars" is a "digital monster film", a film for the future.
Similar in execution to the short film which eventually spawned "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow"
, Negadon is a 100% computer-generated short which has been cleverly designed to look like the old Japanese man-in-the-rubber-suit monster movies
of the 50's. Even the posters
look the part.

as a kid, and crossed your hands to zap monsters with the specium ray
