When the three Majin films were released on video by ADV in the 1990s, this film was given the title "Wrath of Daimajin", which is actually the title for the second Majin film. That film was called "Return of Daimajin", which is the title for the third film in the series. 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.
