Ultraman was a staple of Japanese culture in the 1960s and 1970s. Created by Tsuburaya Productions, the colorful, metallic hero hails from the far away reaches of space and protects the Earth from the monsters and aliens that threaten to destroy humanity. The show leans heavily into science fiction and action, and also is a special effects showcase for kaiju fans.
