Although four episodes of Agon: Atomic Dragon were complete by 1964, Toho used the no-compete clause in creator Shinichi Sekizawa's contract to prevent them from being broadcast for four years, citing Agon's resemblance to Godzilla. See more »

Because we obtained the third fire, a bright future in prosperity had been promised... However, for that reason, we must not forget the events that have knocked on something else's door.

Agon was a short-lived series in Japan, Agon being yet another giant monster who smashes buildings and leaves destruction all over. But this one is a lot of fun, the action starts pretty early and the monster destroys all the miniature buildings and sets with a lot of enthusiasm. I have it in the original Japanese language form, and it doesn't make a difference as you just wanna see giant monster action, which there is a healthy dose of. Directed nicely and fast-paced. There's also a tan-ish "tint" over the b/w film stock. All in all it's not a Godzilla movie but it is a lot of fun to watch if you can find it.
