5.0 out of 5 stars Iron King.........., May 30, 2010
This review is from: Iron King: The Complete Series (DVD)
As the product description suggests, Iron King is a gloriously loopy Tokusastu Japanese superhero television show. It's filled with furious fast-paced action and campy humor. Brought to you by rhe same team that brought you Ultraman and Super Robot Red Baron, Iron King aired on the Tokyo Broadcasting System from October 8, 1972 to April 8, 1973, with a total of 26 episodes. It's about Gentaro Shizuka (Shoji Ishibashi), best described as a singing cowboy, and Goro Kirishima(Mitsuo Hamada)to stop The Shiranui clan who've planned to conquer Japan for over 2000 years for banishing them from the country by The Yamato clan. Each member of the S-clan controls a gigantic robot warrior in order to overthrow the Yamato Clan. It's not Gentaro but Goro who has the power to become Iron King by touching the medals on his Turning Hat, and shouting "Iron Shock!" when danger comes around. Transforming into Iron King quickly dehydrates Goro and he can only remain as Iron King for a short period of time so this cause problems but it's a good plot point. At the tenth episode, the S-clan is no more but a new group fills that gap called the Phantom Militia. Then, later on- Iron King battles the Titanians who can assume insect-like monster forms.

Fans of Ultraman, Red Baron, Kamen Rider, The Super Inframan, and others will love this show. I rather enjoyed it myself as it's in the tradition of Godzilla and all these other programs I've mentioned.
