Editorial Reviews

Iron King is one of the gloriously loopy Tokusastu Japanese superhero television shows. Filled with furious, fast-paced action and campy humor, Iron King quickly became a favorite in its native Japan when originally broadcast from 1972-1973 by combining robots, martial arts, and creatures in ways uniquely Japanese.

Being a fan of the Ultraman series, I was curious when it was announced that BCI had acquired the distribution rights for this rather obscure series.

Very little information was known beforehand, however, a good friend recommended I check it out.

When I did, I was thoroughly impressed by many things regarding this series. For one, it is very unique amongst similar giant hero programs released at the time. For one, there are essentially two main characters, Gentaro and Goro, who travel the country, going from town to town, protecting people and stopping the bad guys. (which has very early shades of 'Supernatural' regarding the Winchester boys, especially with the comedic bickering they share)

This works exceptionally well in that the character development is focused solely on Gentaro and Goro, as opposed to having to deal with a large government team of agents like in most Ultraman type shows.

in addition, the bad guys in question are all too human, they've just gotten their hands on some pretty advanced technology (in the form of giant robots) and use that technology to terrorize innocent civilians in their bid to take control of Japan, and from there the world. It isn't until much later in the series do aliens come to invade the planet.

And of course, the piece de resistance is the fact that the titular hero is not in fact the main character. What I mean is that Gentaro, the lead agent is not the one who transforms into Iron King, rather it is his sidekick (the seemingly bumbling Clark Kentish Goro) who has that distinct honor.

I own both the BCI version and Mill Creek version of the Iron King DVD's. If you can find a copy of the BCI release I would highly recommend getting that version over the Mill Creek release. BCI is now out of business so those discs are harder to find. My reason is that the Mill Creek version is a very shoddy cheap re-release of the BCI version. The episodes are crammed onto 3 DVD's rather than the 4 dvd's in the BCI version. Normally this would not be a big deal only meaning higher compression artifacts and lower image quality however somewhere in the process Mill Creek screwed up the subtitles so that as you are watching the show they start to go out of sync with the voices. It eventually gets to the point where subtitles are appearing on the screen when there is no voice to go along with it. It's very annoying and makes watching the episodes much more difficult as you don't always know which subtitle goes with which speaker. From the price it's obvious Mill Creek's are a budget release but in my opinion it's worth the effort to find the original BCI release even if it costs a little more.

(The Mill Creek release of Super Robot Red Baron has the same issue)

BCI's recent release of IRON KING has become a gem in my collection just like their release of SHADOW WARRIORS season one. All 26 episodes of the complete series are spread throughout 4 DVDs. The qulity, while not remastered, is excellent. The insert- with info, bios, and interviews supplied by August Ragone -may contain spoilers but is a wonderful addition. I would have to beleive anyone would become a fan of a show that uses spies, robots, ninjas, aliens, martial-arts, and romance all in one program - AND USES THEM WELL!!! I highly recommend this series for anyone looking for something unusal and a load of fun for any age group.

Greetings and thank you for checking out my review. Being a BIG fan of the original ULTRAMAN and JONNY SOKKO series, I purchased this sight-unseen, because I thought it to be a worthy follow-up. Produced in the early 1970's and (supposedly) produced by the same people who created the original ULTRAMAN series, IRON KING is very similar to theme and action, but it seems to skewer MUCH younger for audiences. The premise is much more simple than the ULTRAMAN or ULTRA 7 series. The monster designs aren't nearly as interesting or entertaining. And considering that the series took place nearly a decade after the classic Tsuburaya series, the special effects and direction is pretty standard stuff. They really hadn't refined the children's television format, nor did they increase the budgets or special effects. But aside from the two male leads, there are LOTS of fine babes-of-the-week who guest star and get in on the monster action. Only problem is - they have a real affinity for killing them off! (Four die in the brief series run.) Overall though, complete episodes, SOLID transfers, good music and fun, harmless entertainment. Kids should dig it and will appreciate the zany fun. Good weekend viewing at a TERRIFIC Price!

Just a warning to those who complain about such things ; Though there are English captions, all these episodes are in Japanese. Fun, crazy and entertaining as heck, this collection is broken up into three story lines. First is a weirdly racist plot line that shines a weird light on the largely ignored subject of Japanese ethnicity. You see, the Japanese islands are largely dominated by the Yamato ethnic group, but there are others...and the first ten or so episodes feature the Shiranui trying to destroy/dominate/eject the Yamato through the use of...well, giant robots. Then we have another (less interesting) brick of episodes involving some guys dressed at mock Arabs (terrorists?) of the Phantom Opposition Party who use giant dinosaur robots, and finally...a race of AWESOME ALIENS called the 'Titanians' who look very 'V for Vendetta' and turn into giant bugs.

I warn you...Star Trek this isn't. It's not even as by-the-books as Ultraman or Johnny Sokko. This is a WEIRD series...but it's all the more entertaining for it.
