Henshin Pimp Theater: Return of Ultraman (Kaettekita Ultraman)

I've uploaded Daicon Film's second live-action short, The Return of Ultraman. It was released in 1983, and was written, directed and starred a 23 year old Hideaki Anno.

The title is a reference to Anno’s previous Ultraman Deluxe shorts made when he was a sophmore at the Osaka College of Art. In the second Deluxe movie Ultraman leaves the earth and goes back to space, hence the "Return of Ultraman" (or Kaettekita Ultraman) title.

Also included on the video is a making-of featurette detailing the production’s FX creation.
