okay, I love bad dubbing. I admit it. After seeing over 15 Kaiju films and a LOT of Ultraman by the time I was 11, singing along with the Mothra Islander song as a kid, that's fairly understandable.

So, I LOVE this series.

"SPUNNNNNKY MONKEY!"

"Awwww, PIGSY, You a POOFTAH!"

SO bad. The translations are SO bad...

But charming, sweet, heartfelt. And the series really, trullllllllllllly attempted to get the message of the core myths (that the series was drawn from) across.

I think anyone who loved Ultraman and likes myth and Legend will honestly love this (unless they are hard of hearing; no subtitles or captions which pisses me off).

and a lot of what really could be considered "Yokai"...

give it a go. If ya'll ain't a Grinch, you'll have a sweet time.

Definitely a case of rose-tinted spectacles for me, I'm afraid.
