Toho Company Ltd., the makers of Godzilla, was going to sue Japan Radio Pictures, as they thought Agon looked too much like their famous monster. But when they found that director/writer/SPFX director Fuminori Ôhashi (who helped out in making the first Godzilla suit) was working on the show, Toho simply said, "Oh, it's you! Well, it's okay then!" 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.
