TV-series
Zone Fighter, Godzilla

review by
Mike Haberfelner

The Garoga send some kind of jelly to earth, that when heated up properly will turn into terror beast Jellar - Zone Fighter (Kazuya Aoyama) and Zone Angel (Kazumi Kitahara) intercept the delivery. So to get their jelly back, the Garoga kidnap Zone Junior (Takashi Sato), then set up a trap for the Zone family. They don't fall for it though, but the Garoga get their jelly, turn it into giant monster Jellar, and when Zone Fighter grows to giant size to defeat the terror beast, he notices it's immune to most of his weapons. And soon Jellar pummels Zone Fighter, so much so that Zone Angel and Zone Junior call on Godzilla for help. Godzilla gives Jellar a sound beating and rips off one of its tentacles - out of which grows a second Jellar, and the two give Godzilla a sound beating - but by now Zone Angel and Zone Junior have succeeded in recharging Zone Fighter, and as a tag team, Godzilla and Zone Fighter beat the two Jellars to a literal pulp.

 

Ok, the design of Jellar is somewhat charming, it looks like a rather lazily put together tentacled monster, but looks all the more menacing in its imperfections. Plotwise though, this episode has little to offer in terms of originality, it really seems the same basic plot has been over-used in this series' so far only 21 episodes already. Sure, some of it is still fun, and Zone Fighter and Godzilla shaking hands is worth a chuckle, as is Godzilla's cavern with sliding doors, but that's already about it.
