This is the only Majin film that wasn't released in the United States during the 1960s (it first appeared on American home video in the 90s). Likewise, it's the only one that doesn't have an English dub. See more »
The sleeping Daimajin has moved to an island home and the people under his protection live happily at lakeside. When evil warlords decide its time to subjugate these peaceful neighboring domains they go right for their leaders with some sneaky assassins and a surprise attack. As a demoralizing move they blow up the stone god in his island home. What a bad move that turns out to be. Not the best of the three Daimajins. It's much less beautifully filmed and the story isn't so great. I liked "Return of Daimajin" best because the kids are cute and the cinematographer had the eye of a naturalist.
